Gaming Market in Brazil and Local
Payment Methods

Understand the particularities of the gaming market in Brazil and the essential role of
alternative payment methods in this booming segment.

Brazil: the largest gaming
market in LATAM

By 2022, gaming revenue in Brazil is expected to reach 1.84 billion US dollars, according to PwC and Statista.

From casual smartphone gamers to professional eSports competitors, Brazil is home to a large number of players, making the Latin-American country one of the leading gaming markets in the region.

Gaming stats in Brazil

  • 73% of Brazilians play electronic games.
  • 55% of gamers in Brazil pay for entertainment.
  • 57.8% of players are aged 20 to 34.

Challenges of the Brazilian
Gaming Market

  • Many consumers do not own a credit card, and frequently ask for friends and family to lend them a card to complete an in-game purchase.
  • Boleto bancário is one of the alternatives for gamers who cannot pay with credit cards.
  • The traditional boleto bancário, however, has its limitations: it is not responsive to mobile screens and the payment confirmation can take up to three business days.
