Multipoker continues to make Colombians millionaires; Pasture was again the city where the company managed to support a casino in the delivery of the jackpot; It seems unprecedented that the last four prizes have been awarded there, but it is the very high frequency of play and exclusivity that makes Multipoker's performance at the Casino Carnaval possible.

The report on PL 3626/2023 by Senator Angelo Coronel, rapporteur of the text, is expected to be presented yesterday and voted today Tuesday, both in the CAE and in the Senate Plenary. Brazilian media reported that the proposal is being processed simultaneously by the Sports Commission (CEsp), which approved the text on November 8 in the form of a report by Senator Romário.


It should be noted that the project approved by the Brazilian Chamber of Deputies provided for an 18% tax on the income of betting houses. Now, the parliamentarians in charge of the negotiations warned that it is very likely that this percentage will be reduced and differentiated taxation will be applied to companies and bettors.


Currently being debated is a proposal for a 12% tax on the gross income of betting houses and a 15% income tax rate for platform users.


The rapporteur must also maintain the proposal approved by the CEsp on the fixed concession of 30 million Brazilian reais for 5 years for three licenses and eliminate the restrictions on advertising approved by said congressional group.



On this point, Senator Jorge Kajuru (pictured) promised days ago that he will defend the permanence of betting sponsorship in free advertising both on club shirts as well as in the media under contract with betting houses, and without fixed hours. As it must undergo changes, the proposal must be voted on again in the House. The intention of Angelo Coronel and the others involved is that the text also has the support of the deputies.

Colombia was the first South American jurisdiction to regulate the market and Stake has identified it as optimal in its expansion strategy. The objective is to establish itself as a market leader within the next two years.

The first ambassador is the former Argentine soccer player Sergio Agüero, who shares the bill with the Alfa Romeo Formula 1 team.
