Fixed odds betting or sports betting in Brazil was legalized in December 2018 and is currently in the process of being regulated by the Ministry of Finance.

“The partnership with one of the largest companies in the gaming and betting area is a milestone and shows the importance that Brazil represents in the world context of games and betting. We are very proud of this association and believe that the Brazilian market, duly regulated by the State, can represent gains for social and sports projects that will benefit from the fixed-odds betting modality”, commented Feldman.
