Brazilians-managed casino wins bid to explore online gambling in Paraguay

Amambay Hotel Casino, a Paraguayan hotel run by Brazilian businessmen, will be the first casino in Latin America to be licensed to explore online gambling. The group was the winner of a tender promoted by the Paraguayan Ministry of Finance, and could administer Internet betting for the next ten years.

To carry out the bid, the owners of Amambay estimated an investment of US$ 7 million in the contract, in addition to 20% of tax on the bettings, which the Paraguayan government considered the best proposal.

Located in the city of Pedro Juan Caballero, on the border with Ponta Porã (a municipality located in the Brazilian state of Mato Grosso do Sul), Amambay Hotel Casino is commanded by Itacir Fernandes Sebben. Other minority shareholders are Maria de Lourdes Ferreira Fontoura and Sizuo Uemura.
