Betting regulations: what does Ordinance 827/2024 say?

On May 22, 2024, the Prize and Betting Secretariat (SPA) of the Ministry of Finance (MF) published Ordinance SPA/MF No. 827/2024. The aim is to establish rules and conditions for obtaining authorization for the commercial exploitation of fixed-odds lottery betting by private economic agents throughout the country.

The rule establishes the procedures required to obtain authorization from the MF to operate popular sports betting in Brazil. In addition, it takes into account the guidelines and general rules of betting regulation established by Federal Law No. 14,790/2023.

The SPA’s initiative will allow new entrants to provide this type of lottery and will regularize the legal entities that already operate the activity. For this reason, the rule is widely expected by economic agents interested in starting the activity.

In addition to the rules and criteria for obtaining authorization, Ordinance SPA/MF No. 827/2024 is also made up of several annexes, which include models and guidelines to be followed by the legal entities applying, with the aim of facilitating the authorization process, including draft applications, declarations and forms to be filled in.
