Project Summary

Popularly known as "raspadinha" (authorized by Act 13,155, from August 4, 2015, Article 28), the Exclusive Instantaneous Lottery (LOTEX) is a lottery mode in which bettors know, when scraping the card, whether they won a prize or not. LOTEX has as its theme: trademarks, emblems, hymns, symbols, shields and the like, with regard to the sporting entities of the soccer modality.

Through the results of studies carried out by the Brazilian Bank of Economic and Social Development (BNDES), the concession was defined as the privatization modality to be used for this project - a model that presents greater attractiveness to investors and a greater financial return to the government.

Today, in Brazil, there are three federal types of lottery:
a) draws (Mega-Sena, Lotofácil, Lotomania, Double-Seine, Timemania and Quina);
b) numbers (Federal Lottery);
c) sports prognostics (Loteca and Lotogol).

Throughout 2016, the Federal Government raised approximately R$ 13 billion with all these lotteries. In the same period, social transfers totaled just over R$ 6 billion.

Part of the amount collected with federal lotteries is transferred, by legal determination, to social programs of the Federal Government. The resources are intended to education (Student Financing Fund for Higher Education), sport (Ministry of Sport, Brazilian Olympic Committee, Brazilian Paralympic Committee and soccer teams), culture (National Fund for Culture), to safety (National Penitentiary Fund) and health (National Health Fund).

The LOTEX concession, according to studies by the Economic Follow-up Department of the Ministry of Finance (SEAE), will result in increased competition, modernization and growth of the lottery market in Brazil. Lottery participation in the Brazilian economy today oscillates around of 0.21% of GDP.

Worldwide, the lottery market operates about US$ 260 billion a year in business, according to data from the World Lottery Association (WLA). The entity, based in Basel, Switzerland, represents state-owned and private lottery companies in 80 countries. The amount intended for non-profit purposes, to the benefit of society, totaled US$ 76 billion in the same period. According to that entity, the sector employs 112 thousand people around the world. The main global product markets are Italy, France, England and some US states, which, even, served as a reference for BNDES studies.

The main positive impacts expected from the project are the great potential for collection, the granting of the right to operate LOTEX, the generation of employment and income for the population, and the financing of social causes through onlendings established in the labor legislation for the creation of this type of lottery.

The studies elaborated by the BNDES point to the possibility of a total collection, by the concessionaire, in the order of R$ 6 billion already from the fifth year of operation of the service. Of this total, 16.7% will be allocated to social transfers and 2.6% will be related to tax collection.

LOTEX was included in the PPI at the 1st Meeting of the Board, on September 13, 2016, through Resolution No. 8, dated from September 14, 2017, which expressed its opinion about the resumption of its privatization process. Subsequently, at the 3rd Meeting of the PPI Council, on August 23, 2017, the concession was approved as an operational modality for the privatization of the lottery.

The bodies involved in the concession process are the Ministry of Finance, the granting power and responsible for regulating the sector, and the BNDES, responsible for preparing the studies and executing the bidding process for the concession. The concession period was defined by the Ministry of Finance in 15 years and the studies elaborated by the BNDES defined a minimum grant value of R$ 542.1 million.

It is possible to point out as attractiveness factors to potential investors:
a) the 65% payout, which stimulates demand for the product;
b) the legal framework, which guarantees the legal security of the concession;
c) the 15 year term, which ensures the return of the investments for private partners;
d) the potential to be explored regarding the instant lottery service in Brazil.
