In life, there’s an unwritten list of actions one should not carry out in the world. These would include not having sex on a beach in somewhere like Dubai, refraining from eating really messy food on the Washington Metro, and making jokes about bombs in airports. However much people tell you not to do this kind of thing there’s always going to be groups stupid enough to break life’s book of unwritten rules. Check these guys out
Here on the tablog we’re open to a lot of things – I mean having a tagline of gamblin’ drinkin’ and carryin’ leave you with a lot of room to maneuver.

The jails must be a lot better in Malaysia or something because there is no way there is any other security happening for the staff of this hapless company. This same group has a license in the Philippines and has their live dealer studio there, why would they be stupid enough to move a portion of their operations to Kuala Lumpur?
Lastly, if any online gaming companies needed any examples of crackdowns that have happened in the Malaysia over the past year or so, you needn’t even look further than here on CalvinAyre.com. August saw a Malaysian online sports betting syndicate targeted, there’s been continual extremism pressure for total gambling prohibition, even grannies have been busted for gambling online. This was all after a summer in which the World Cup saw hundreds of gamblers arrested for illegal online gambling on more than one occasion, and with crackdowns early in the year as well it’s we can’t reiterate how totally brainless it would be to enter these territories.
