In this article I will compare the #1 online casino in Asia with local Malaysian casinos. It will be a 5 minute read but if you want to be 100% sure that you are dealing with a safe casino and get best bonuses it is worth it.
Online gambling has been rising very rapidly among Malaysian players, the most popular are sportsbetting, playing slot machines and live casino games.
Currently the most popular online casinos in Malaysia are Royalewin, W88, Winclub88, Deluxewin and Regal88. So lets take a look at each of them:
W88 Casino – Voted #1 in Asia and Malaysia in 2019
W88 has been accepting Malaysian players for 6 years and they are a global brand offering online casino, sports betting, poker and live dealer games. They are one of the few online casinos that offer all that from the same wallet, so the entire website is very easy to use. New clients of W88 can get 600 MYR bonus.

How is W88 customer service for Malaysian players?
Customer support chat is online 24/7 and very fast to fix any problems. Depositing funds usually takes 5 minutes and withdrawals to e-wallets take under 30 minutes. Depositing and withdrawing funds through wire bank transfer is also possible.
How does the website look and feel on computer/mobile?
The entire website feels very smooth and loads fast, games work on both Mac and Windows computers. For mobile casino I liked the app better, but the games also work very well in mobile browser.
W88 also offers live streams of most sporting events, I really like this feature and often watch English Premier League games on their website. You can open W88 account on their official website by clicking here.
During the 2018 season W88 was the sponsor of Wolverhamtpon Wonderers but in 2019, W88 signed a new deal with Aston Villa. Every new user who signs up and depsoits has a chance to win a VIP trip to England to watch Premier League games.
My first impression is that I have gone in a time machine and it is now 1995 – look at that website? Are they serious?
The entire website looks very outdated, they offer a welcome bonus of 110% but the maximum amount is very small “Maximum of first time deposit claim is MYR388.0”
The slot games feel very outdated, there are couple competitions for predicting the free score, but these offer very small prizes. When looking for the sportsbook odds I get this error:
With the way this website feels and the lack of bonuses this online casino is definitely not worth your time.
Bitstarz are a new online casino and they are getting more and more popular among Malaysian players. Their main currency is EUR (1 EUR – 4.7 MYR) and they also accept cryptocurrencies.
The website feels very good on desktop and mobile and everything just feels right, take a look here:
They offer a wide variety of slot machine games (the best selection in the world) and also live dealer casino games. On their website actually every player can check if the outcome of the game is correct – it is called “Provably Fair”
You can read about it, if you click here, then click “help” on the right side, then “FAQ” and read the question “Are the games fair?”
Below is a video of a big jackpot won at Bitstarz ( Around 201 000 MYR):
Bitstarz also has very player friendly first deposit bonuses:
“Make your first deposit and we will match it with a 100% bonus up to €100 or 1 BTC. And to keep the fun going, you get 180 FREE SPINS”
But that’s not all, play the video to understand how to get maximum bonuses.
They offer very big jackpots and some of the biggest online jackpots that have been won in online casino games have been won at Bitstarz
The website of Winclub88 looks and feels very smooth, I tried to look for some information about the company who is behind this website but there is no “ About Us” or any other information which seems weird.
When looking for the Sportsbook betting odds I can see logos for M88, Maxbet, CMD368 and so on, this tells me that this online casino does not actually offer any sportsbetting, they are a middle man and it is always better to join with the company directly.
Winclub88 offers a big variety of bonuses, such as first deposit bonuses upto 1800 MYR
Overall the number of bonuses that are available is okay but nothing special.
It is still weird that there is no information available about the company who is behind winclub88 and they use a picture of Christiano Ronaldo and other celebrities – this and hiding the company information shows me that the company is shady and when you hit a big win you may have problems with withdrawing.
Overall good looking website and bonuses but very shady company – If you plan to play there play with small amounts and don’t keep too much money on your account.
Deluxewin is another online casino that is available for Malaysian players, they are licensed in the Philippines. Deluxewin offers sportsbetting, live casino games, slots and also poker. The website looks kind of boring and outdated but everything seems to work.
There are couple strange notifications on the main page of Deluxewin , for example “Kindly contact our LiveChat to get our latest banking information before you make a deposit as we might change our bank account from time to time for security reason, Thank you .”
This tells me that the company has not registered the bank accounts as an online casino and they actually need to hide the money. Very dangerous for players because if the bank accounts get frozen by authorities you will lose all your money.
Also this is strange “PT Triple Monkey game got issue where game data can’t be provided from provider, thus any win/ lose for this game will be void until this issue been solved by PT. Kindly do not play this game at the moment until further notice. Thank you.”
Why don’t they just remove this game? Something feels wrong with deluxewin
What about the bonuses that Deluxewin offers?
So there is 110% first deposit bonus up to 100 MYR, and also another 25% deposit bonus? Very confusing but I think it is meant that if you deposit more than 100 you will get 25%. So actually it is smarter to deposit 100 and get 210 (110 bonus) than to deposit 200 and get 250 (50 bonus).
They also offer other kind of bonuses but this online casino definitely is not run by professionals and everything just feels wrong.
Regal88 is the last Malaysian online casino that we will look at in this review. So first impression
Talk about a confidence destroyer right, but these kind of attacks happen against every casino website so we will look past that. Still this kind of messaging is more effective through email and not on the homepage.
The homepage feels nice and right away you are notified that there is a 120% bonus available for new players. Regal88 offers live casino games, slots and sportsbook. They also offer something called GG fishing, I think it is poker in the GG poker network but I am not 100% sure as there is no info about it.
Overall a simple design but the bonuses are very weak, Regal88 offers only:
30 % New member bonus and 20% daily deposit bonus are one of the weakest that I have seen.
