How To Approach Online Casinos Like A Pro In Malaysia

I hate to break it to you, but your casino experience will look nothing like that in the ‘Hangover’ trilogy. Sure, you’ll have fun gambling and winning bets, but at the end of the day, or at the start of the early morning, you won’t find a tiger in your hotel room and one of your friends will probably not be missing.

Having said that, knowing how to approach online casinos like a pro will give you a similar rush to the characters in the movie and will have you dancing to electronic music to celebrate your wins!

In today’s article, I’m going to tell you all you should know about online casinos and how to make the best out of your experience!

Signing up with online casinos and trying their luck at a few card games is a popular pastime in Malaysia. While it is not illegal to participate in gambling activities, Islamic law prohibits such games. However, since Malaysia is a diverse country filled with people of different backgrounds and religions, it is estimated that one-third of the population can freely participate in such games. Therefore, choosing a reliable and trusted online casino in Malaysia should be your first priority.

For example, say you’re looking at hotels to stay in for the weekend. What’s the first thing you check? You check reviews and customer comments. You don’t simply rely on the hotel’s own advertising, you want to read about other people’s experiences as well.

If a hotel has several 5-star ratings, then you’ll probably book your stay there and have a wonderful time. The same goes for online casinos. Have a look at the comments left by other customers – what did they enjoy most? Is there something they didn’t like? Was the casino’s customer service team helpful? 

If you’re satisfied with the answers to those questions, then you can continue with that casino. But if something looks shady, run.

Since your money will be on the line, it’s important to know how you can deposit and withdraw money safely. If you feel comfortable making transactions using digital wallets, don’t settle for a site that doesn’t allow that.

You will be entrusting this website with your financial and personal information, so make sure that you’re comfortable with its payment process. 

Moreover, check to see how long it takes for withdrawals to be processed. While some casinos have short and instant withdrawal times, others can take up to a week. If you need your winnings instantly transferred into your bank account, then make sure to check out their policy and that the casino lives up to it.

 Now it’s time to check the game library. If you want to focus your time on playing poker, then you need a website that has a wide variety of poker games that you can play. Or, if you want to branch out and play more than one kind of game, you need an online casino with a wide selection of games.

Live dealer table games are another big selling point for online casinos. This is because they most accurately reproduce the atmosphere of playing in a traditional brick-and-mortar casino. However, the operation of this option is more costly for online casinos, so if this is the type of game you want to play, you should make sure that the online casino you select has a sufficient number of tables.

Having a look at the company’s customer care might not be something you thought about, but something that is equally important. If you’re using an offshore casino site, there are a number of points you need to keep in mind:

  • Is the service available 24/7? – chances are there will be a time zone difference between Malaysia and the offshore casino’s country. If their customer service is only offered during standard office hours, then while you would be panicking like a cow stuck in a tree about your money and frantically trying to contact the customer care representatives, they are in a deep sleep.

Choosing a casino with around-the-clock service will make the experience easier and more accessible for you, while also allowing you peace of mind!

  • In what language is the service available? – again, this is especially important with offshore casino sites. If they only offer their service in their native language, then you’re going to have a hard time understanding them.
  • How can you get in touch with them? – do you have to fill out a google form and hope you will get an answer soon? Or do they have a direct line and live chats?

Listen, I know I basically gave you a ton of research to do, but trust me, in order to have a cool ‘Hangover’ inspired casino experience, these steps need to be followed. The characters in ‘The Hangover’ didn’t follow these steps and look where they ended up!

Your money and personal information will be on the line and the last thing you need is someone stealing all your funds while you’re trying to win a game of poker.

Gamble safely!
