Legal Terms and Gambling Laws in Malaysia
Gambling in Malaysia is believed to have originated with Chinese merchants in the 19th century. Gambling, both legal and illegal forms, is very popular in Malaysia. The majority of gambling forms -- lotteries, casino games, horse racing -- are legal in Malaysia, while all forms of betting on sports (at bookmakers) and online gambling are prohibited. But even illegal gambling is very popular in Malaysia.
The Ministry of Finance is the only authority that issues licenses or permits for gambling. This unit is called the Kawalan Perjudian Unit (Betting Control Unit). There is another law -- Lotteries Act 1952, which governs lottery play in Malaysia.
Malaysia's gambling laws are governed by three major legal frameworks: the Betting Act 1953, the Common Gaming Houses Act 1953, and Shariah law.
The Betting Act 1953 includes telecommunications and other methods by which bets can be transmitted between customers and betting houses under certain conditions when gambling is not compliant with the Act. This Act penalizes anyone found running or being involved in a betting house with a RM200 000 fine and 5 years in jail.
The Common Gaming Houses Act 1953 (with further amendments) covers more types of gambling than the Betting Act. Gaming is defined in the Common Gaming Houses Act as "playing a game for money or money's worth that involves chance, skill, and money."
As part of Malaysia's 2020 budget plan, the Finance Minister increased the punishments for both illegal gamblers and gambling operators. In addition to increased penalties, the minimum jail sentence for those who gamble illegally has been increased from 6 months to 20-fold.
As Malaysia's predominant religion is Islam, it has Sharia (or Syariah) law and Sharia courts as well. Generally, non-Malays (mostly Indians and Chinese) are not subject to Sharia law, but to secular law. Sharia law forbids all forms of gambling.
