Gambling issues that have been the core of religious and armed resistance at the Senate will now be more carefully handled by other parts of government, and any project introduced will enjoy better parlamentarian support, showing greater public acceptance among politicians.
CCJ of the Senate rejected a project of law legalizing casino exploration and expansion with authorization granted for this market. This project allowed establishments that specialize in betting on ball gambling to open for business; aspirant money would then be given directly into their accounts by establishments that specialized in this form of betting; other wager types allowed would include bingos, videojogos, and online wagers as well.
Brazil and Gambling Gambling history is long and complicated. Gambling was officially banned during Getulio Vargas’ presidency when he prohibited their operations at Camara. Subsequently, PSDB political stalwarts believed in its immorality and unwise nature throughout this debate, supporting an imprudent proclamaco from Senate.
But over time, his position shifted with the arrival of Geraldo Alckmin as leader of PSB, an intragovernmental party. Last week, Vicepresident Daul gathered Playtech president Peter Johnson – an English firm providing betting technologies for casinos in Macau and Las Vegas – for a meeting.
An occasional business associate recognized that prohibiating certain transactions should be reviewed, and assumed responsibility for implementing them.
An associator understands the balancing act between gaming’s legitimacy and actual interests, as demonstrated through gambling, and believes it to be one that provides real and tangible solutions to real and significant problems.
Reviving of Brazil’s gaming market is becoming ever more visible; Brazilian betting houses now bear their logos on t-shirts of major football clubs, regularly on television media platforms and competition banners at major tournaments, plus their very own advertising emissions. On Monday (31), Governor Alckmin met with the last number of locations used by civil police operations for combatting gaming trafficking in Sao Paulo; investigative teams will spend the remaining months of 2018 reviewing it all for approval.
