Once called the Malaysian dollar, the Malaysian ringgit (MYR) is the official currency of Malaysia, a country in Southeast Asia. The term "ringgit," which means jagged, is an old term that refers to the jagged edges of Spanish coins, which were in common use in the region in the 1700s and 1800s. Today, Malaysian ringgits are issued by Bank Negara Malaysia in banknotes and coins of varying denominations.
There are many Internet-based casinos, including live casinos, that accept Malaysian currency. Fans of live baccarat, roulette, blackjack, and other live dealer games who live in Kuala Lumpur and elsewhere in the country can place their wagers easily and conveniently with Malaysian ringgits.
