More accessible to all Brazilians

Loterias CAIXA celebrate 61 years with new Espaço da Sorte

Loterias CAIXA turned 61 this Friday (15). As part of the celebration, the ‘Espaço da Sorte’ (Lucky Space), where lottery draws are held, received a new setting, making it even more accessible to all Brazilians. Everything was planned to offer a welcoming experience and encourage people to visit the site, both on a daily basis and during draw times.

The remodeled spaces gained new names: ‘Sala de Milhões’ (Millions Room), which is where the draws take place; ‘Quintal dos Sonhos’(Backyard of Dreams), where anyone can relax or just dream about the big Lottery prize; and the ‘Espaço de Coworking’ (Coworking Space), which can be used as a work and living area.

Accessible for people with disabilities, the external part of the space focuses on the public on Avenida Paulista, in Sao Paulo, offering various activities on the themes of sport, culture, music and arts. Internally, it offers a collaborative or co-existing place to work.

"The Espaço da Sorte on Avenida Paulista was opened in 2021 and gave even more visibility and transparency to the draw process, providing more interactivity with the public. Now, the idea is that Brazilians feel welcomed by this place and start to frequent it more,” comments the president of CAIXA, Maria Rita Serrano, who will visit the new facilities accompanied by the vice-president of the Operating Agent, Lucíola Aor Vasconcelos.

“In addition to working on the dream of changing lives, individually, we, in practice, change people's lives with the Lotteries because part of the resources collected from the lotteries are invested in the country,” added Serrano.

During the visit, the artist Odrus will personalize barrels using graffiti. Odrus is one of the artists who make up the “20 Extraordinary Years” Exhibition, on display in the seven spaces of CAIXA Cultural.

It will also be possible to exclusively check out Caixa Hollo, an environment with virtual representations of Paralympic athletes, where the public can interact with the holographs and learn about the athletes' inspiring stories. The attraction will be available from September 15th to 22nd.

Exhibition “20 Extraordinary Years”

Between the 15th and 29th of September, Espaço da Sorte will feature some pieces from the “20 Extraordinary Years” exhibition, on display across the country by CAIXA Cultural, which celebrates 20 years of Loterias CAIXA sponsorship of the Brazilian Paralympic Committee.

61 years of Loterias CAIXA

Since the draw for extraction number 1 of the traditional Federal Lottery of tickets, which took place on September 15th, 1962, in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Loterias CAIXA have invested in actions for the social development of Brazil, their primary role. Loterias CAIXA transfer around half of the revenue from games to priority areas of the Federal Government, such as education, sports, health, culture, security and social security.

Bets can be placed on the network of lottery partners across the country, on the Loterias CAIXA portal and on its own app.
