Malaysian courts stress illegal nature of online gambling

October 20, 2023 Malaysia iGaming & Gambling

Internet gambling is a violation of the 1953 Common Gaming Houses Act, according to Malaysian courts. In response to a request from a former operator of a gambling establishment, the Court of Appeal made its decision.

Online gaming venues without any physical equipment are subject to this law. They said that desktops and laptops fall under the category of “gaming machines.” All equipment, even ever-more-advanced technology as it develops, is subject to the 1953 Common Gaming Houses Act.

The judges also made it clear that having physical equipment on the property is not required under the law. The ruling concludes by stating that online computer gambling establishments that lack physical equipment fall within the definition of “common gaming house” as defined under Section 2(d) of the Common Gaming Houses Act of 1953.
