how exactly does online gambling work in Brazil?

Brazil effectively banned gambling in 1946; a more-or-less all-encompassing restriction that remained largely in place until 2018, when sports betting was legalized. However, as virtually no regulation was ever implemented, Brazilian players and international gambling platforms have been operating in a somewhat grey area ever since. This is all due to change once Brazilian online gambling regulation is formally approved in the coming weeks. 



The limbo appears to work, at least on the face of it. And at least for international operators. Surprisingly, despite the lack of clear regulation, Brazil still manages to generate over 20% of all global online gambling traffic. 



It is for this reason that the Brazilian authorities have introduced new regulations to help the Brazilian gambling market capture what is viewed as lost revenue (a projected $1.5 billion in 2023) and bring it back within the fold of the Brazilian economy. 



In fact, the projected numbers are likely to be even larger when regulation finally passes, as there are vast swathes of the Brazilian would-be gambling community that are not currently gambling, despite wanting to.




In 2021, a survey on Brazilian attitudes toward gambling discovered that 39% of Brazilian participants said they didn’t gamble because they felt uncertain of the safety. 



Just over half of all potential players said they would feel more confident playing online if they had more information about the companies. This is understandable as many gambling operators are not very clear about who their owners are, or even the location of their headquarters. 



In the same survey, 51% of participants said they would like to see more player protection mechanisms put in place. Read more opinions from the Brazilian betting community in our blog, ‘How does the Brazilian betting community really feel about upcoming regulations.’ 



Despite operating in the grey, international gambling operators have achieved considerable visibility through advertising on television and the internet, and through sponsorship of Brazilian football clubs. 



However, the wave of publicity and ensuing popularity has raised concerns about the impact of gambling addiction, the growth of scams, and the threat of money laundering.

postponing the vote on a new draft of its gambling bill last month, another step has been taken by Brazil towards launching a regulated online gambling market, with the approval of SB 186/2014.



Gambling has been outlawed in Brazil for the last 70 years, but lawmakers in the National Congress are trying to change that through a wide-reaching gaming bill.



The statute would authorise land-based casinos, sports betting, bingo halls, horse racing wagering, and internet gambling, completely overhauling Brazil’s gambling market.



The game of “Jogo do Bicho” or “animal game”, a popular type of lottery that is currently run by criminal enterprises, would also emerge from the underground and gain legal status. The game operates in 25 states and has been outlawed by federal law since 1946, apart from Paraiba, where it is legal and regulated.



Last week, the Senate’s Special Committee on National Development (CDEN) accepted the gambling legislation and moved the bill to the chamber’s floor. The CDEN approved the original version of the bill in December of last year, but was put forward again after senators proposed 16 amendments.
