Games Magazine Brasil invited the man everyone wants to hear and who knows the most about the subject: Waldir Marques Jr., Undersecretary for Prizes and Draws at the Ministry of Economy, currently at the forefront of this regulatory process. He chose our webinar to reveal the news that the industry wants to know about. He will answer key questions about the regulation taking shape without leaving any issues aside.

Along with Marques Jr, there will be other high-level protagonists such as André Gelfi, Managing Director Brazil of Betsson Group. The Swedish sports betting giant was one of the first to place its trust in our market and recently merged with the local company Suaposta, founded by Gelfi himself. He will bring his years of experience as a local operator in combination with the needs of the international group he now represents.

Leonardo Baptista, CEO & Co-Founder of Pay4Fun Payment Services, a local company with sustained growth and enormous projection (totaling more than 100 partners), will offer his vision of how his firm works in Brazil and the positive impact that a correct regulation could generate in the intermediation of funds that is carried out between operator and bettor.
