Legal Terms for Online Gambling in Malaysia

In technical terms, online gambling is illegal in Malaysia. However, none of the laws has clearly stated that patronizing a gambling site is forbidden. Since the laws were framed decades ago, there is no specific mention about placing bets online.

In fact, as per the Civil Contract Law, Malaysia has declared that any agreement made in the form of gambling is null and void. Understand it this way, if a person wins a bet, but the other person refuses to pay him, he cannot file a lawsuit against him. So, to say, he will not be backed by any legal support.

Moreover, Malaysia being a predominantly Muslim country, gambling is considered illegal whether online or offline. However, there are three laws that dictate the gaming regulations in the country.

Betting Act 1953
Under this act, all gambling all forms of gambling are totally banned. The act also talks about all possible means of telecommunication of bets between people and betting houses. Moreover, it has also been stated that anyone found operating a betting house or patronizing any website will be fined 200,000 ringgits followed by five years of imprisonment. In short, it can be said the Betting Act is focused on sports betting and bookmaking.

Besides, it is a bit obscure to find whether betting websites fall under the category of a traditional betting house. One relieving factor for the gamblers is that Malaysia doesn't target individual people but those who either own or operate the betting houses.

Common Gaming Houses Act 1953
As sports betting and bookmaking are covered under the Betting Act, Common Gaming Houses Act includes all other gambling forms. Under this law, it's a crime to operate a betting house and even being caught inside one. Anyone caught in it is subject to a penalty of 5,000 ringgits and can be sent to prison for up to six months.

The act covers almost all possible locations where people could gather, and gambling can take place.

Sharia Law
According to the Malaysian constitution, Islam is the mandatory religion for all Malays as they account for over 60% of the total population. Not to mention, under Islam, gambling is considered a sin. The Sharia law is imposed upon the Muslims, and the law does not bind the non-muslims.

In Malaysia, Sharia courts and the secular legal system co-exist. Moreover, the practice of gambling is strictly forbidden by Sharia law.
