Yep, we’re daydreaming a little.
Have you ever wondered what national game is an inherent part of Brazilian culture? The answer is Jogo Do Bicho. In plain English, Jogo Do Bicho means “Animal Lottery”. That’s how people describe it: the game is a deeply embedded cultural phenomenon with a certain romantic aura, making it hard to eradicate! You may ask, why should this lottery be eradicated? The answer lies in its history.
In retrospect, the game's creation is well-documented: it was invented by Baron Drummond, the administrator of the Rio Zoo, with the main aim of popularizing the place. He encouraged visitors to guess the animal hidden in the cage behind a curtain. That animal symbolized the day.
In the evening, the curtain fell to reveal the symbolic animal, and all the holders of fortunate tickets were given cash prizes. People started buying and selling tickets everywhere, causing some problems with the legacy. Since then, this kind of game was prohibited in Brazil, including the famous Jogo Do Bicho. However, Jogo Do Bicho had already spread far beyond and captured the popular imagination in Brazil forever.
BGaming is pleased to offer this cultural lottery and give you a piece of Rio’s warmth and hospitality. Bet on animals or numbers - do whatever you want! The gameplay is easy, with the funniest cartoon animals coming to life, breaking out from the wooden boxes, and eager to give you as much cash as possible. We can't stop playing it, can you?
