BGC - PANEL ON LOTTERIES IN BRAZIL

"States can not lose the competence to regulate their lotteries"

Sérgio Ricardo Almeida, president of Loterj (State Lottery of Rio de Janeiro), endorsed the opinion of Sear Jasu, of Able (Brazilian Association of State Lotteries), regarding the important and beneficial competence of state lotteries. At the end of the session, Patricia Narchard presented the SEAE Lottery Prize, created by the Secretariat of Economic Monitoring.

Sear Jasu, from Able (Brazilian Association of State Lotteries), started the session by telling a story about the lotteries, some of them created at the end of the 19th century and most of them until the middle of the 20th century, "that is, before a decree of the military government that limited the performance of state lotteries. "

According to Jasu, there was never an ample discussion about gaming in Brazil until 2010, when it began to signal the need to regulate the activity and the inclusion of lotteries was a victory of the sector. "The states, which historically have always played an important role, can not lose, in this moment in which the regulation of gaming is discussed, the competence to regulate their lotteries," he defended.

Sérgio Ricardo Almeida, president of Loterj (Lottery of the State of Rio de Janeiro), endorsed the opinion of Jasu regarding the important and beneficial competence of state lotteries. "We have to go to the Federal Supreme Court to fight for our rights. All over the world, local lotteries are very strong, which is not the case in Brazil because of retrograde legislation. I'm sure the federal government will not help Apae's and other entities that Loterj helps.”

According to Almeida, Caixa Econômica Federal's role in supporting sport is important, "but the low-income sport with a high social impact is abandoned. And it is not only because the state lotteries like Loterj are directly involved in this segment of society neglected by federal power,'' he said.

At the moment, when discussing the regulation of gaming in Brazil, Sérgio Ricardo sends his message to all authorities: "We want to explore the existing lottery games, take on the jogo do bicho, launch new lottery modalities and more than ever we want to explore and assist in the licensing of bingos. In addition, he said that" Rio de Janeiro is also open to the casinos that come to settle in our country."

At the end of the session, Patricia Narchard presented the SEAE Lottery Prize, created by the Secretariat of Economic Monitoring, which will award monographs that address the themes "Regulation of lotteries in Brazil" and "Aspects of Corporate Responsibility of Lotteries".
