Brazil: CCJ can vote today proposal that legalizes gambling

The Commission for Constitution, Justice and Citizenship (CCJ) resumed work on Wednesday (7), starting at 10am, with the analysis of legalization of gambling and the reopening of casinos in the country. The topic is dealt within a bill (PLS 186/2014) by Senator Ciro Nogueira (PP-PI), which authorizes the exploitation of 'games of fortune', online or in person, throughout the national territory.

The proposal received substitutive by the rapporteur, Senator Benedito de Lira (PP-AL), and two separate votes, both rejected by Senators Magno Malta (PR-ES) and Randolfe Rodrigues (Rede-AP).

The regulation of the activity must contemplate popular local jogo do bichos; video-bingo and video games; bingos; casino games in integrated leisure complexes; sports and non-sports betting games; online casino games. Accreditation for the operation of the bingo and video-bingo game will have a 20-year term, renewable for an equal period, and will be the responsibility of the states.

The accreditation of casinos will be valid for 30 years and may be renewed for successive periods. These rules are part of the substitute elaborated by Benedito.
