Not surprisingly, the population of the country, where football is as popular and well-developed as it is in Brazil, spends a large amount of time on sports betting sites.
Open source statistics show that many of the largest betting sites handle the lion's share of Brazilian sports betting customers and are in no way going to turn them down, despite the fact that sports betting transactions originating in Latin America do not bring bookmakers the high level of income as do bets originating in Europe.
One good example of the high level of traffic coming from Brazil is the Bet365 Brazil website which is visited by more than 26 million Brazilian bettors every month!
