Malaysian Company Launches Online Casino

Genting International PLC has recently made its first steps to becoming involved in the online gambling business.

The Malaysian gaming group recently announced the launch of CircusCasino.com, an online casino made possible with some help from Playtech . The casino will be operated by Genting Stanley Alderney LTD. However, only individuals from the UK, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands will be able to play for real money.

For those of you that don’t know about online casinos, they actually offer odds and payback percentages that are similar to real casinos. However, reliability and trust issues have been a common problem. To fix this, companies are now purchasing software from companies such as Playtech to show they are credible. When it comes to actually gambling online, these software companies use random number generators to ensure that numbers, cards or dice appear randomly.

Despite the fact that Genting International operates 44 casinos in Britain, should online casinos be allowed? Poker has become an instant hit online with websites such as PartyPoker.net and PokerStars.com , but casino is a whole different take. With a variety of different games, individuals can easily lose their money, especially if the online casino is a fraud.
