Brazilian Online Gaming

There have been several unsuccessful attempts to criminalize online gaming in Brazil.

In 2006, 2008 and 2010, the Brazilian government attempted to block or ban online gaming payments, but the legislation failed.

In 2011, Brazil tried to ban sports betting online, but that attempt fell short as well.

The failed efforts to ban online gaming reflect Brazil's conflicting views on the gaming industry in general. Brazil has a long and rich history of gambling, but it also has restrictive gambling laws.

In July 2015, Brazil's Senate approved legislation that would legalize sports betting in the country and create two new lotteries, the proceeds from which would be diverted to the nation's football clubs. The new regime would also apply to online gambling and would therefore subject players and affiliates of unauthorized operators to large fines.

In August 2015, Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff vetoed the clauses of the bill that would have regulated online gambling.
