Structure of the Secretariat of Prizes and Betting

The Prizes and Betting Secretariat began its operations in February. Its establishment was driven by the approval of the law that allows for the regulation of sports betting and online casino games in Brazil. The SPA is tasked with overseeing and regulating the activities within the new sector.

There are three subordinate divisions within the Secretariat of Prizes and Betting; Undersecretariat for Authorization, the Undersecretariat for Monitoring and Inspection, and the Undersecretariat for Sanctionary Actions.

Each Undersecretariat, along with the Secretariat itself, will have a general coordinator and a coordinator. In total, 38 positions have been created for this new structure, which will oversee the operation of lotteries, raffles, and prize giveaways in Brazil.

Dudena will lead these positions in achieving the aims and objectives of the SPA. Although not familiar with the gaming, betting, and lottery sector, the ministry believes that Dudena’s extensive experience in the infrastructure field and public service will provide him with the necessary tools to navigate his new role effectively.
