Publicado: 2024-02-15

The Ministry of Finance has announced that it will promote the edition of approximately twelve regulatory decrees in relation to the law that regulates sports betting in Brazil. This measure aims to reinforce that regulation is ongoing and that, at this time, it cannot be subject to sanctions by states.


This is the Brazilian bettor... more and more there are women who bet.


The team of Minister of Finance, Fernando Haddad, has committed to delivering the complete regulation in the near future. This document will include standards for issuing state licenses so that they do not interfere with federal licenses.



Concern has also been expressed about establishing a supervisory system to prevent attempts at tax fraud. In addition, cases of locally licensed betting houses that allow betting on games in the rest of the country will be observed. In Rio de Janeiro, Loterj has implemented a system that requires a declaration of address by the bettor.


Betting was regulated at the end of 2023 and is in the process of implementation. Initially, 134 companies expressed prior interest and, as a result, will have priority in licenses and concessions.


The law, sanctioned at the end of December, brought more clarity to the scenario. The government, after pressure and reports of fraud, acted to regulate the market. Thus, with the creation of the National Gambling and Betting Secretariat and the projection of significant revenue, the sports betting market in Brazil is about to enter a new phase. Therefore, the measures taken by the government aim to not only regulate but also ensure integrity and safety in this expanding sector.

The Ministry of Finance of the Dominican Republic has published a new resolution regulating casinos and online gambling authorization. The text establishes the requirements, administrative fees, and minimum criteria that operators must comply with to obtain a license.

A third license "for other online applications" is also indicated for DOP 10,236,740 ($173,000). Each license will be valid for five years and not transferable during the first three years.


Authorization of casinos and online gambling in the Dominican Republic has followed a diligent process that culminated on February 28, 2024, with the recommendation to the Minister of Finance by the Casino Commission, under the official letter DM-051-2024 signed by its president, for the issuance of the resolution that will set in motion the new regulated sector of Internet gaming and gambling in the country. 


The regulation contains 36 pages with seven chapters and 36 articles and was signed by Minister José Manuel Vicente.



Some of the provisions

The first chapter of the document includes a definition of each of the terms and words that characterize online gaming activity.

It also points out the requirements to be fulfilled to be an operator in the country (article 5) and details the Internal Control Procedures Manual, the requirements of the internet gaming platform, the administrative fees, and the operating conditions (article 8).

Likewise, the resolution covers all the pertinent parts of the authorization process to obtain the license, as well as operational and security aspects of the technological gaming and betting platforms, complying in Article 27 with the obligation of the operator to enforce a responsible gaming program, which includes a self-exclusion process.

Brazilian Ministry of Finance prevents sports betting regulation from becoming a tax war.

The Brazilian Institute of Responsible Gaming (IBJR) issued a statement in response to the recent conflict between the Ministry of Finance and the Rio de Janeiro State Lottery (LOTERJ). The Ministry of Finance urged LOTERJ to cease the registration of lottery modalities operating agents that do not comply with the territorial restrictions established by federal legislation. LOTERJ, however, allows companies registered in Rio de Janeiro to operate throughout Brazil, violating federal regulations.




In addition, LOTERJ is applying tax values and rates different from those established by the Federal Government, raising concerns about a possible "tax war" between states and increasing legal uncertainty in the sector.



The IBJR has learned that LOTERJ has sent letters to companies requesting the immediate interruption of operations of platforms that are allegedly operating irregularly in Rio de Janeiro without a license granted by LOTERJ. Failure to comply with these requests has triggered the opening of administrative sanctioning processes, questioned by the IBJR.


This was answered by the Instituto Brasileiro de Jogo Responsável, IBJR after the provisional measure of sports betting


Although the states have the authority to operate lotteries as a public service, legislation on the subject remains the exclusive competence of the Union.



Therefore, the IBJR recalls that the Federal Law establishes that the Ministry of Finance will establish conditions and deadlines for the adaptation of companies to the provisions of the law.

Caixa Econômica Board postpones decision on lottery transfer. 

Brazilian Ministry of Finance prevents sports betting regulation from becoming a tax war.

The Board of Directors of Caixa Econômica Federal postpones the decision on the transfer of lottery service operations to its subsidiary.

The reason was the pressure exerted by employees. Employees fear that this measure will be the first step towards privatization. The sale of a subsidiary requires approval from the National Congress, but employees believe it is easier to approve the sale of part of the company than the complete privatization of Caixa.

Fabiana Uehara, director of the Brasília Bank Workers Union, elected to represent employees on the Board of Directors, expressed concern about the situation:



I think the government is not aware of what is happening. This agenda must be withdrawn”, claiming that the government may not be aware of the consequences. After an intense discussion, they postponed the decision.

Political influence

The influence of the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Arthur Lira, was also addressed. According to ICL Notícias, Lira managed to influence the replacement of the person responsible for the electronic sports betting area at Caixa.



According to journalist Letícia Casado, from UOL, since 2023, Lira has exerted strong pressure on Haddad on issues related to the online betting sector.

To avoid friction with the federal government, the minister would have given in to pressure from Lira and replaced the person responsible for the aforementioned area.
