Many countries across the globe are beginning to take a firmer and more professional look into their online gaming laws, and how they can be adjusted to provide a fairer reflection of the sport itself. Malaysia is the next country in a long list to do so, and have started to put together a new format that could, in the future, lead to a new era of online gambling and betting within the country.

Malaysia is rife with illegal gambling problems and a lack of leadership from the Common Gaming House & Betting Acts commission has not been sufficient to help protect those who play online at the moment. Illegal gambling centers have been broken down with regularity across the country n 2014 as it looks to crack down on the amount of people who are gambling within the nation through illegal channels.

However, because current regulation does not cover online gambling, many people are using a loophole in the market to enjoy a spot of gambling without breaking any rules. At the moment, a large section of gambling options are perfectly legal but many illegal methods are still practiced, causing a significant amount of friction between the authorities and gambling commissions.

Sport betting is banned in just about every form other than horse racing, and this is where the vast majority of gambling fraud takes place – as well as black market gambling activities.

Hopefully, a more balanced solution can be found quickly.
