Brazil

Undefined
Brazil is a white-level online gambling jurisdiction because it's not clear which laws apply to Internet gambling and which do not.

Brazil is the largest country in South America and is also the eastern-most country. Its north and east coasts are with the Atlantic Ocean, and it borders almost every other South American country to the south, west and north.

Overview

There is an outright ban on almost all forms of gambling in the country of Brazil aside from select race tracks, government-operated lotteries and recreational, low-stakes gambling between family members. However, it's not clear if this applies to online gambling because there is no clarification in the law. In addition, no court cases have been brought against players for gambling on the Internet, and no lawmakers have addressed the legality of it in a way that clarifies the issue.

Along these lines, there is also no framework for operators in the country. As of the time of this writing, no companies offer online gambling services in Brazil, and it doesn't look like they will be embracing wagering on the Internet any time soon.

Licensing

No licensing process exists for online gambling in Brazil. This is because there is no level of regulation whatsoever, and there is no clarification in the law about whether or not it would even be legal to play online. While the government does offer a form of licensing for racetracks and certain other specific gambling outlets, there is no open licensing process like what you would find in many other countries.

In a lot of cases, it can seem like these licenses are given on whims without a standard list of requirements. If online gambling licenses are given in the future, they will probably need to have a more strict protocol in place because of the open nature of the games and the need to keep out shady operators.

Player Protections

Because Brazil has no regulatory framework for online gambling, there are no player protections there. However, one law that could be relevant in the future of Internet gambling for Brazil is the Marco Civil law which includes measures for net neutrality in addition to other laws. For example, they've ruled that all communications made through any ISP that can be used by Brazilian clients is subject to Brazilian law. This provides the legal basis to easily go after any foreign operators who were offering games to Brazilian players, but it's unclear if this would even fall under their jurisdiction.
