Technology that is developing rapidly affects human life, one of which is in gambling. Gambling that was originally done conventionally then turned into gambling that can be done online. Online gambling is gambling using the internet. Some countries such as Singapore and England have strictly regulated and legalized online gambling, but there are still countries that have not explicitly regulated such as Indonesia and Malaysia. This study will discuss the scope of online gambling regulation in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, and the UK, as well as how to apply effective laws that can be applied in Indonesia, after a comparative arrangement. By using normative research methods and Systematic Literature Review then based on comparative theory, convergence, and legal effectiveness.

From this research, it was found that online gambling in Indonesia and Malaysia is considered a prohibited activity, because it is against the law as well as religious and moral norms that grow and develop in society. Malaysia itself already has regulations to prohibit gambling, although online gambling has not been explicitly regulated. Then, there are countries that allow gambling such as Singapore and England. Singapore regulates gambling so that people are not harmed or exploited by remote gambling. Then the UK regulates online gambling by reducing the number of types of gambling and minimizing the influence of organized crime arising from gambling. Indonesia can apply gambling rules as did Malaysia, Singapore, and the UK, of course, with due regard to the effectiveness of the law so that this law is ideally applied in Indonesia while still paying attention to aspects of effective law formation.
