LOTTERY IN PARANÁ – Created at the end of 2021, after the sanction of State Law 20.945/21, the public lottery service in Paraná aims to generate resources to finance actions for the promotion of social rights since part of the collection of games will be directed towards this end.

Paraná’s lottery system will have two aspects: fixed-quota sports betting, in the “bets” format, and lotteries, both of which can be explored in physical and virtual environments.

In the first case, the accreditation of companies that already operate in the fixed quota sports betting market is foreseen, being able to explore this modality in a way organized by the State. The process is in the study phase and this public hearing will help to give security to the process.

In the second case, the project provides for the exploration of the lottery system, with the implementation of physical spaces and accreditation of establishments where bets can be made. In this modality, there will also be a study of the market and participation of the population. The final definitions (number of new lottery outlets, game format, prices, etc.) are still being studied by Lotepar.
