After eight years of absence, the popular scratch card is back on the Brazilian lottery scene. Caixa Econômica Federal recently announced the relaunch of the instant lottery, operated by Caixa Loterias, this semester.

Lucíola Vasconcelos, CEO of Caixa Loterias, confirmed that the scratch card will return with a renewed proposal, offering bettors an updated and exciting experience.

Furthermore, tickets will be available in physical and virtual versions, allowing participants to choose the option that best suits their preferences.

Ticket prices will vary between R$2.50 and R$20, with prizes that can reach up to R$2 million, providing a wide range of betting options.

Strict security measures will be implemented to guarantee the integrity of the game, including validating tickets only at points of sale authorized by Caixa.

In addition to relaunching the scratch card, Caixa Loterias plans to expand its game offering to include sports betting, following the model adopted in other countries.

With a population of 215 million inhabitants and annual revenue of around R$18 billion from gaming, Brazil presents a promising market for new initiatives in the gambling sector.

About Instant Scratch Lottery

The Instant Scratch Lottery, known for its exciting game dynamics, was a popular modality of Caixa Econômica Federal from 1991 to 2016.

This is because participants scratched the tickets to instantly find out if they had won. For every five tickets, at least 1 was awarded, providing a rewarding experience.

Federal Decree No. 8,897, in 2016, officially closed the sport, marking the end of an era. Despite this, the Scratch Card made its mark as a source of immediate entertainment.
