Malaysia and Asia as a whole is the continent where the ellegal gambling roots have a deeper roots, it's not easy for Police and local authorities there to fight with that because these raids are just everywhere.

This for me is quite shocking. For a long time I was thinking that Malaysia is very peaceful and quite in these sorts of things but lately I've been reading many news related to crimes in gambling and Malaysia comes up often. It isn;t fair that there are people who make illegal lotteries and cheat people.
