    Default Brazil Senate to discuss gambling bill this week

    According to a report by Games Magazine in Brazil, a gambling bill will be the first item on the agenda of the Committee on Constitution, Justice and Citizenship (CCJ) meeting on Wednesday (7 March) and has a "good chance of approval (last step before going to plenary)," according to Senator Benedito de Lira.

    From the report:

    The text of the PLS 186/2014 includes the regularization of the animal game, videobingo and video game, bingo, games casinos in integrated leisure complex, games in sports betting and not sports and online casino games. The accreditation for the operation of bingo and videobingo will have a period of 20 years, renewable for the same period, and will be the responsibility of the states. Since the accreditation of the casinos will be valid for 30 years, can be renewed for successive periods.

    The Bill 186 pending in the Senate four years ago, where he underwent several adaptations. Among them, the allocation of the resource, it would be for Social Security, then to the Health and now for Public Security.

    The rapporteur on the CCJ, Benedito de Lira, is convinced that the regulation of gambling is desirable in Brazil: "It is necessary to remember that the games have always been part of the imaginary civilization. They are the source of culture. Moreover, the long period of prohibition of gambling in Brazil, about 75 years old, ended up mistakenly label this activity as a matter of moral, even contaminating the debate on the legislation of games. "

    According to Deputy Nelson Marquezelli, the PTB of São Paulo, the legalization will generate jobs and resources, which does not happen today because the games are illegal. "If we want to get some discount on Brazilian taxation we need to look for new revenue. Brazil has 200,000 players who leave to play in Uruguay, Argentina, Paraguay, Foz do Iguaçu, Las Vegas. Why not regulate it something already exists in Brazil? "

    In a session lasting more than two hours on Wednesday, senators from the Senate Constitution and Justice Commission (CCJ) rejected a bill that would legalize gambling in Brazil.

    The bill can still be voted on if a senator enters with a request for such an analysis. Current options to regulate the activity are the projects of the new general tourism law, which may include casinos, and PLS 442/1991, which deals with the regulatory framework of gaming, both being processed in the Chamber of Deputies
