The Unprecedented Growth of Live-Dealer Online Casino Games in Malaysia

By: Chino Moreno


Asian markets such as Malaysia, South Korea, and Thailand are fast becoming hubs for online gaming and betting. Recent surveys and statistics have seen these niches gain an upward movement both in player volume and degree of engagement, not to mention that they continuously gain staggering growths in annual revenues. In Malaysia alone, a good portion of the population spend millions of local currency every year on recreational gambling, with most of them playing popular table games for a sizable part of their stint in online casinos like 12BET.

While many virtual table games appeal to and attract a great deal of punters, still a significant number of Malaysian players seek a “real-world” version of the games—but not necessarily requiring them to go afar their own home. This ‘need’ has driven an remarkable growth of “live-dealer online casino games” in the country, giving way to a whole new portal that is almost as exciting—if not more—as those found in brick-and-mortar establishments. Live casinos in Malaysia made this a point in considering innovation with their gaming products.

Live-dealer or live casino table games are table games offered by online casinos that employ real tables, real croupiers, and real gaming studios that are captured on film via a certain camera technology which are then broadcasted in real-time on the gaming window of the players’ personal computer. This allows for real-world gaming practices while not necessarily qualifying them as a traditional casino set-up. Of these games offered in Malaysia, three have seized the biggest share of customer patronage, namely Roulette, Blackjack, and Baccarat.

Roulette
This game’s table layout and general aesthetics make it an intimidating table game for punters. However, the gameplay is actually very simple: one only needs to predict what number or color in the wheel the ball will land on after a spin. These predictions are paired with betting options, the most common being “odd or even,” “red or black,” and some groups of numbers. Players can also directly bet on specific stand-alone numbers, which will potentially give them the highest possible payout of the game.

Blackjack
This card game is won by coming up with a hand whose value is or near 21 but without going over. By the general rule of thumb, Blackjack’s card value criteria are as follows: an Ace can count as either 1 or 11, to which is better; the cards from 2 through 9 are valued at their face value; and the 10, Jack, Queen, and King are all valued at 10.

Baccarat
This game is won by obtaining cards that are of higher value than the dealer’s. The highest possible value is nine (9). The dealer and player are initially given two cards each and may seek for an additional card if he thinks his hand has the value not large enough to out-perform his opponent’s. All number cards (2 through 9) count as their face value while Ace counts as one. Tens and picture cards are valued at zero. When two cards total to more than ten, 10 must be subtracted and the remaining total is the card count (example, an Eight and a Nine is equal to 17, subtract this with 10 and the card’s value is Seven).
