Live Poker Rooms In Malaysia


The Malaysian scene when it comes to poker is very restricted owing to the laws and regulations governing the country. The population majorly follows Islam which does not allow for any form of gambling. Hence the laws covering gambling of any kind which also includes the card game are not very liberal. 

One may find it interesting that Sharia laws are followed in Malaysia but they are restricted to the Muslim population while the secular courts are applicable to the non-Muslim population.

This makes the situation all the more tricky. The Betting Act of 1953 is a key legislation on gambling in Malaysia which has been amended on several occasions and now has taken a more liberal approach. 

Two other legislations which are crucial when it comes to horse racing and lottery are the Racing Act of 1961 and The Lotteries Act of 1952. People do have restricted access to legally permitted land-based gambling activities but anyone found participating in unlawful gambling could face jail-term of up to six months and fine not exceeding a sum of RM 5,000.

Limited gambling activities are found in four cities in Malaysia, namely, Penang, Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur, and Genting Highlands. If you consider grinding at the poker tables then only Genting Highlands is the spot where you can find poker games. 

As per information available on the internet, Resorts World Genting, which opened its gates in 1971 is where you will find live poker operational. Poker games kicked off at this venue in March 2020. SkyCasino Gold Club housed in Resorts World Genting is where poker players and enthusiasts will find their hunt ending for poker games.
