    GLMS President has outlined the significant opportunities the legalisation of sports betting in Brazil will bring for the whole Brazilian society, but also flagged relevant risks. He underlined the need for a sustainable regulatory framework that allows for an attractive betting offer, but at the same times prevents social and public order risks, like gambling addiction, money laundering and sport competition manipulations

    He referred to the GLMS Code of Conduct on Sports Betting which could act as a reference for a responsible and sustainable sports betting offer and also called upon Brazilian auhorities to sign and ratify the Council of Europe Convention on Sport Competition Manipulations.
