NeoGames and Intralot do Brasil have made history by launching the first regulated iLottery and online sports betting service in Minas Gerais, Brazil. Known as "LotoMinas," this comprehensive digital solution builds on the state's successful retail lottery and digital keno program.

It's official: NeoGames and Intralot do Brasil have launched the first regulated iLottery and online sports betting operation in Minas Gerais in Brazil. This landmark development marks a major milestone in the Brazilian market as NeoGames and Intralot do Brasil break new ground.
The upcoming launch of "LotoMinas" in Brazil represents NeoGames' first foray into the LATAM country's rapidly-growing lottery market. This cutting-edge, dynamic digital platform, developed in partnership with the local lottery operator, is an extension of Minas Gerais' thriving retail lottery & digital keno program.
As a turnkey project, it promises to offer a comprehensive suite of e-Instant games catering to the Brazilian market while providing essential services like CRM management and sports risk management from Aspire Global. NeoGames' Brazilian cloud-based solution comprises a comprehensive suite of online sports betting solutions from BtoBet, including Managed Trading Services (MTS), to offer a one-stop shop for all Brazil-based lottery & gaming requirements.
The platform's initial release boasts a robust collection of 18 casino games specifically selected for the needs of players. Multiple award-winning game titles include the Instant Keno Multiplier, the popular Queen of Diamonds, & VIP Platinum games. Interestingly, this anticipated launch represents NeoGames' maiden collaboration with Aspire Global & BtoBet, two companies it acquired in 2022 and are now essential cogs of the NeoGames group of companies.

With their in-depth understanding of the Brazilian market, the company's highly-skilled team is ideally suited to this type of partnership.
