Brazilian gambling reform defeated in the Senate

By site_editor

Gambling Insider (March 8) reports that proposals to reform Brazil’s gambling were defeated when the Brazilian Senate Committee on Constitutional and Judicial Affairs voted down gambling reform legislation.

The article goes on to say that Senate Bill PLS 186/2014, a bill which would have seen the legalisation of bingo, online sports betting and casino games was dismissed by a 13-2 senate committee vote, despite a wide appetite from gaming operators in Brazil and internationally.

It would have given the Brazilian Federal Government final responsibility responsible for granting concessions for the exploitation of any type of games of chance. It also would have allowed the Ministry of Finance to appoint the federal agencies that would be in charge of regulation and ongoing licensing duties.
