The state lottery operator of the state of Rio de Janeiro, LOTERJ, has announced that it is accepting applications from gambling operators who want to conduct lottery draws and accept sports bets in this state. Companies wishing to engage in betting and lotteries have the opportunity to submit a package of documents until July 5, 2021. After that, LOTERJ representatives will select the best offer and select the winners, with whom a five-year contract will be signed. For it, operators will have to pay 260 million Brazilian reais (about 49.5 million US dollars). My Lucky Story wrote that the Brazilian football player Gabigol, who was caught illegally gobbling in March 2021 during anti-coronavirus restrictions in the state of Sao Paulo, got off with a fine of $20,000. As reported, the Brazilian e-sportsman Coldzera became the ambassador of the bookmaker Parimatch. Recall that the former head of the Brazilian Football Federation, Jose Maria Marin, was convicted in the United States. He was found guilty of taking bribes and sentenced to imprisonment and payment of a fine.
