Asia and Malaysia in particular is the place where elegal gambling have really deep routs and it's emensly tough for the authorities to fight with all these organizations. Hopefully police has the better of them lately with all these recent raids but honestly I doubt they ever will cut off the problem completely.

Malaysia has been very popular in illegal gambling scene, i have read numerous reports like this one. I also think that they will still find a way to operate even with the raids.
