Brazil is the largest South American country (occupying 47% of the territorial area) and the only one that doesn't speak Spanish: Portuguese is its official language.

Playing online poker from Brazil FAQ: poker rooms and payment methods

Brazil is popular for producing one of the best coffee in the world, but mostly for the samba and the Rio Carnival, a huge party held in Rio de Janeiro every year with a Sambadrome and lots of events in the Copacabana beach. When you visit Brazil don't forget to taste a real Caipirinha with Cachaça, the national cocktail.

A Brazilian Real (BRL) worth about 0,27USD ($1USD = 3,76BRL). Brazilians are very friendly people and football is a real passion there; Brazil has won the FIFA World Cup 5 times; even former Brazilian football superstars like Ronaldo and Neymar have joined to popular poker rooms like PokerStars as ambassadors.

But football is not the only sport that Brazilians practice, as they rank 11 in the all-time money list of TheHendonMob with $160,349,070. Andre Akkari is perhaps the most popular player as he has been a PokerStars ambassador for a long time.

Online poker legal background in Brazil

Online gambling is still in a grey area in Brazil. There are no licensed gambling operators in the country but is perfectly legal to play in any offshore poker room, that are good news for players, as they can choose the best poker rooms to play in. It is expected that in 2019 the government regulates the market, and the discussion is served in the country to consider poker a sport of skill or a game of chance.

Best online poker rooms available for Brazilian poker players:

Bodog Poker Latin America

Bodog is considered one of the softest fields available today, and since 2017 expanded its services to Latin America (initially Bodog only offered its services to the USA and Canada); including Brazil.  

Asian reservations

We consider the Asian poker rooms like PPPoker, PokerMaster, and PokerKing Asia a top deal in 2018. Brazilian players are welcome to join the action from low to high stakes with our full money guarantee.

Winning Poker Network

Black Chip Poker is the flagship room of WPN in Brazil. Winning is popular for having very good traffic at all NLH and PLO stakes (from NL10 to NL5000) and a very good tournament grid. Worldpokerdeals complements this with a very good rakeback deal.

Chico Poker Network

BetOnline is the best option for Brazilian poker players in the Chico network. Deposits and withdrawals can be processed using ecoPayz, Bitcoin, Ethereum, and bank transfer. BetOnline has good traffic both in NLH and PLO and also offers jackpot S&G (Windfall).

Payment methods available for Brazilian poker players:

Brazilian poker players can use a wide selection of payment methods available:

Boleto Bancário

Boleto Bancário is one of the most popular payment processors in Brazil and is often used by online poker rooms to process deposits and withdrawals. Boleto Bancário process almost 4 million transactions per year, the 25% of the Brazilian market and is not only by accepted by poker rooms but also popular by services as Skype.


MuchBetter is a new iGaming payment app widely accepted by poker rooms in Brazil, including PokerStars, 888Poker, and VBet and it accepts local methods as Sofort, Giropay, and bank transfers.


PicPay is a mobile payment platform very similar to Skrill and allows Brazilian poker players to process deposits and withdrawals from poker rooms.

Credit cards 

Visa and MasterCard are widely accepted on online poker rooms offering its services in Brazil.


Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Ethereum are accepted by Bodog Poker Latin America, Chico, and WPN network, and our agency also processes deposits and withdrawals to Asian, Israeli and US reservations with cryptos.

Skrill, Neteller, and ecoPayz

Since January 2018, the local authorities blocked all the gambling transactions from Skrill and Neteller, so Brazilians can only use those e-wallets for other purposes.

ecoPayz still works in the country for gambling transactions and is accepted by the largest online poker rooms.

Deposits can be processed through local establishments as Boleto, Itaú, HSBC, Caixa, or AstroPay and cryptos like Bitcoin. Withdrawals can be requested via bank transfer or selling your funds on local markets like Localbitcoins.


The online gambling market in Brazil is huge: $800MUSD are the estimated money in bets and more than 2,5M people are registered on online poker rooms, most of them are active daily. Next year, the government will pursue a regulation, hopefully just to take a piece of the cake with taxes and not to forbid it.  

Skrill and Neteller are not processing gambling transactions on the country, but this doesn't mean Brazilians have no options to deposit and withdrawal from poker rooms. Local methods have emerged and our agency works with ecoPayz and cryptos.

Bodog Poker Latin America is among the best options for Brazilian poker players, but we also recommend trying the private reservations we offer.
