Malaysia mulls law retype to solution to online gambling Malaysia

Malaysia’s  government  is  considering  improving  existing  statutes  so  as  to solution to what it says is illegal online gambling Malaysia in all the country. Nur  Jazlan  Mohamed,  the  Malaysia’s  deputy  home  minister,  claimed  on Wednesday  that  the  contemporary  legislation  is  holding  back  police  from prosecuting  anyone in  charge for illegal  online  gambling Malaysia, stated the Star newspaper.


“The  police  are  facing  constraints  in  prosecuting  those  in  charge.  They  have suggested  improvements  to  the  laws  on  online  gambling  Malaysia  to  permit them to better solution to the problem,” Mr Nur Jazlan was quoted telling the country’s House of Representatives.

A key piece of legislation covering online gambling Malaysia is the Betting Act, originally  passed  in  1953.  It  makes  illegal  all  types  of  unlicensed  gambling. While the Act has been improved multiple times it makes no specific mention of online, Internet or remote gambling, say gaming lawyers.

The  improvements  would  cover  provisions  under  the  Communications  and Multimedia Act, Lotteries Act, Common Gaming House Act,  and the Betting Act, claimed Mr Nur Jazlan.

The  official  additionally  claimed the improvement would  help merge laws  on illegal gambling, particularly GDWON333 gambling Malaysia, the media outlet stated. Online gambling Malaysia has been known to occur in a lot of Internet cafes in Malaysia, gaming industry media have stated.

By  the  time  of  November  this  year,  out  of  109,000  raids  conducted  against doubtful  illegal  gambling  venues  in  Malaysia,  only  5,834  had  favorable outcomes,  claimed  Mr  Nur  Jazlan,  as  stated  by  the  newspaper.  A  total  of 15,154 people – doubtful operators and bettors – were detained in the raids.

Furthermore, Mr Nur Jazlan  also said that the Home Ministry has  also issued directions to  all state governments on the issuance of local permits for family and public amusement outlets in a bid to curb illegal gambling activities.

On the whole, it’s  clear that the players should not let themselves be found at any types of underground casinos and gaming houses. If you are in public and are gathering with a group of people in the same house making a bet, you are definitely  putting  yourself  at risk. That  being  claimed, it is  also  an intelligent idea to avoid playing at Malaysian online casinos while in a public place, like an Internet  coffee  shop,  just  to  make  sure  that  you  do  not  run  into  any  issues stemming from the Common Gaming Houses Act. In brief, be careful with your action.
