Hello XXX,

We regret to inform you that in light of recent developments,
PokerStars is no longer offering real money play to Malaysian residents.

We are currently assessing the situation, and will communicate
with all of our players as soon as possible.

We apologize for the inconvenience this is causing.

Kind Regards,

Peggy A

I just found some evidences of what PS is up to lately.

Extracted content from an article:


Final Thoughts

Could we be facing a scenario similar to the Black Friday in the near future? It is hard to say for sure, but it is certainly not out of the realm of possibilities. The reality is that if Poker Stars have to cut off some of the ‘lower value’ countries in order to stay in good grace of share holders and be present on the bigger, more significant markets, they will do it – no questions asked.
