Back in 2007, poker was huge across the world. WSOP payouts reached astronomical figures. Malaysia was no different. People were crazy over No Limit Hold’em. Home games, Multi Table Tournaments or a simple Sit & Go game was easy to come by. A simple online search would land you on poker forums dedicated to scheduling such games for Malaysians. It was like Tinder for poker.
That sparked a huge interest nationwide. We’ve since seen some Malaysians go pro and compete on the international circuit with some very encouraging results. Poker is huge in Malaysia to say the least. For casual players, it can be a pain trying to find a game of friendly poker.
Fast forward to 2010, online poker in Malaysia actually became a thing. A few poker sites came and went. Those who were lucky actually got to play on reputable sites such as Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker until cashing in into those sites became a problem. Local sites were fun but many complained that it was rigged and did not have proper RNG certification.
Now in 2018 as we speak, online poker has shifted to a more mobile approach. Mobile poker enables players to play anytime, anywhere. The drawback is that you can’t play on that many tables. Most apps allow players to play on just one table with a few exceptions like PPPoker, KKPoker and Pocket9, where you can actually play on multiple tables at one go splitting your screen in half. Furthermore, those sites mentioned have proper RNG certification. You can now put your mind at ease while playing
The online/mobile poker industry is moving at a very encouraging pace and we as poker players can only hope that it continues to grow.
