Proposed Brazilian bill would see 32 casinos built

Legislation in Brazil has been proposed which would allow states to build casinos based on their population.

Paulo Azi, a member of the Brazilian Democrats, has submitted a bill which could lead to 32 casinos being built in the South American country.  

In the proposal, states with a population of up to 15 million would be allowed to have one casino in their territory.

Two casinos would be permitted in states with a population between 15 and 25 million, while those with a population any higher can build a maximum of three.

The only state big enough to have three casinos would be Sao Paulo, with most only having the population to justify one, according to the bill.

If passed, the legislation would allow the opening of resort hotels and casinos, with licenses to be granted through a system of public bidding. Casinos will be able to occupy no more than 10% of the overall resort area.

To be approved, the bill needs to receive a majority vote from Brazil's 513 MEPs, a majority vote from its 81 Senators and, finally, presidential approval.
