- Campeao Lotto and Gaming Corp is expanding operations outside of the initial Porto Alegre market in Brazil.

The company has grown from 2,000 point-of-sale terminals to over 5,000 in a few months. And it has now expanded outward from Porto Alegre and has plans for continued growth.

Campeao has a partnership with a soccer consortium and a distributor of point-of-sale (POS) terminals to market low cost, high volume lottery tickets. With several thousand POS terminals, Campeaocollaborates with two popular Brazilian soccer teams: Gremio Foot-Ball Porto Alegrense and the Sport Club Internacional. These two soccer teams have a combined base of over 12 million fans.

President G. Robert McIntyre said he was pleased with the rapid growth of the lotto.

"Proceeds from our lotto go to support people's favorite teams, and soccer is the most important sport in Brazil," he stated. The Company has plans to continue growth to other areas of Brazil. Brazil has a population of over 200 million with Porto Alegre only the 10th largest in terms of population."
