The AIDIGLOT event was opened by Gustavo Guimarães, former Secretary of Lotteries at the Ministry of Economy, current adviser to the Senate and one of the responsible for modeling sports betting in Brazil.
Shortly after, Mirko Mayeroff, president of AIDIGLOT, highlighted the agendas of the association. Among the most important points are the changes concerning the executive body of the Caixa Econômica Federal.
The series of protocols left by the association around the request for a hearing at the headquarters in Brasilia was highlighted during the meeting, as well as the lack of response from the Caixa. New contacts will be made to underline the importance of opening a transparent dialogue with the institution.
“Our second meeting amply demonstrated the strength of the sector. There were more than 20 companies actively participating in the search for a common goal, which is an open and coherent dialogue in favor of the regulation of the segment. The benefits of this action are reciprocal and have a positive impact on the whole of society, with the creation of jobs, a greater collection of lotteries and, consequently, a higher transfer to public bodies, the promotion of sport, culture and safety,” says Mayeroff.
An important action carried out by the association is a study commissioned from the FGV (Fundação Getúlio Vargas), which analyzes the positive impact that the diversification of lottery sales channels can generate in the Brazilian economy.
The data promises to measure how the regulated performance of the intermediate online lottery site niche can generate for society as a whole, benefiting not only players with regards to the convenience of making predictions in internet lotteries, but also the consequences that a larger collection is capable of. to be promoted throughout the country.
The Lottery Products Digital Intermediaries Association was formed to unify the voice of businesses in this segment in seeking industry improvements and advocating on behalf of consumers. Among the associated companies are Inovalotto, Lotérica Nova and Sorte Online, founding member of the association.
AIDIGLOT works to energize the sector, seeing in technology and digital presence the means to make the impact of these companies increasingly positive. The idea is to offer a diversity of channels and innovative tools to amplify the collection of Brazilian lotteries.
To achieve these objectives, the association intends to dialogue with Caixa Econômica Federal and jointly seek solutions for the segment.
Among the actions already implemented by AIDIGLOT is the process called Registration Game Safety Check. This is an audit that aims to ensure that all bets marketed on the sites have been officially registered in Caixa’s system, thus mitigating the risk of fraud for the bettor.
The creation of the association represents an important step in the search for a more innovative lottery segment, which will bring positive impacts to the professionals involved in the field and the expansion of jobs and, mainly, for the consumer.
