Sports Betting in Malaysia?
Apart from horse betting, all other forms of sports betting is prohibited in Malaysia. Even then, the Malaysian Racing Association strictly monitors bets on horse races. Not only that, bets are also only allowed in a few tracks across the country and some of the popular ones can be found at the Penang, Perak and Selangor Turf Clubs.
Legal sports bookies or bookmakers cannot be found in Malaysia. Of course, this does not mean that there is none that is operating illegally in underground sports betting markets throughout the country. Many people still continue to wager through these shady channels despite the many risk of cheating and match fixing.
Online Betting in Malaysia
Currently, there are no known Malaysian Internet sports bookies and any sports betting online is strictly banned. In 2003, a company called Ascot Sports was granted a license from the Malaysian government to operate as a bookmaker in the country for a total of 25 years. However, the government decided to change its Malaysian gambling laws, and the license was withdrawn which forced the company to shut down. The company then moved to the Internet for its new venture, having purchased a license from the Isle of Man, and offered services in both English and Chinese to cater to a wider audience. However, it later closed down in early 2008 and is no longer offering online sports wagers.
There are a serious lack of online sportsbooks should one wish to bet online in Malaysia these days but you may do it through a large network of international sportsbooks that accept players from Malaysia and some even deal with the Malaysian Ringgit currency. Not a lot can be done about the existence and availability of these foreign online sportsbooks but the government is still trying to avoid its use as much as possible by asking the banks to stop these gambling transactions. Still, many of them choose to ignore the creed due to the difficulty of putting such a complicated system into place.
