Aposta Ganha partners with Netflix to become first gaming company to team up with the streaming giant in Brazil





Aposta Ganha, the fastest-growing Brazilian sports betting and casino site, has scored a groundbreaking agreement to become the first betting brand to exclusively run advertising campaigns in Brazil for Netflix customers.

Rafa Márquez, former player and idol of Barcelona and the Mexican national football team, stars in the 30-second commercial. The concept was developed by the company’s marketing team alongside a Spanish production company. Football’s unmatched excitement and adrenaline are captured perfectly using powerful imagery and an impactful script.

The short film is already being aired and can be seen in two spots within the streaming platform’s basic package, currently the largest in the world. Netflix also leads the market share index for streaming platforms in Brazil, according to JustWatch 2023 Q4 data, which reported the company securing 27% of the market that equates to 66 million users.

Aposta Ganha’s debut advert can be viewed on youtube.


Hugo Baungartner, Aposta Ganha CCO, said: “Working with Rafa Márquez on this beautiful video piece was a joy and the results speak for themselves. Our marketing team has brilliantly captured the essence of the world’s most popular sport that is a major part of Aposta Ganha’s story. Partnering with Netflix is not only a first for the betting industry, but a golden opportunity to showcase our brand in front of millions of viewers.”







Betsson, the leading global betting operator, proudly announces the addition of legendary former Colombian goalkeeper René Higuita as its new brand ambassador. Higuita, renowned worldwide for his iconic “scorpion kick” save against England in 1995, will further strengthen Betsson’s presence in Latin America.

Andrea Rossi, Betsson’s Commercial Director for Latin America, commented: “We are proud to collaborate with a football legend like René Higuita, who embodies our passion for football and entertainment. This partnership reinforces our commitment to the Colombian market and strengthens our leading position in Latin America.”

Higuita, an idol in Colombia and considered to be one of the greatest goalkeepers in South American football history, said “This alliance began as a bold idea and has now become a reality. I’m proud to join Betsson to make a difference and bring the passion of football closer to the fans.”

Throughout his career, Higuita has been celebrated for his unique blend of professionalism and showmanship. He played a pivotal role in Colombia’s return to the World Cup in the 1990s after a 28-year absence. His accolades include two Colombian league titles (1991 and 1994), a Copa Libertadores (1989), and two Inter-American Cups (1990 and 1997), all with Atlético Nacional. Notably, his performance in the 1995 Copa Libertadores semi-finals has been described as “the most spectacular performance by a goalkeeper in the competition’s history ” by the book Unusual Copa Libertadores Stories.


In addition to being one of the best goalkeepers, Higuita is recognised as one of the best goalkeepers-attackers in the world, having scored 43 official goals, placing him fifth worldwide. In 2004, IFFHS ranked him as the eighth best South American goalkeeper of the 20th century, while El País named him the third best player in America in 1989 and 1990. His particular style of play even led FIFA to introduce the so-called “Higuita Law” in 1990, defining the role of the attacking goalkeeper.

Betsson has recently made significant strides in the region, becoming the sponsor of three of Latin America’s most renowned clubs: Boca Juniors and Racing Club in Argentina, and Atlético Nacional in Colombia. Additionally, Betsson Sport has sponsored the Italian Serie A champions and last year’s Champions League finalists, Inter Milan.
