A Closer Look at ECWON
ECWON is one of the largest online casinos focusing on Malaysia and Singapore and was founded back in 2018. They’re licensed and regulated by the Philippines Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) and have over 15 million bettors visiting their site every month. That’s an average of about 500,000 people a day. With that many people making ECWON their betting home, you have to wonder why they chose this site over the hundreds of others available.
After our deep dive into their site, it’s clear why so many people make ECWON their betting destination. Between their wide array of game providers, sportsbooks, and easy bank transfers, it’s easy to see what makes them so preferred. With that being said, there are a few things we wished this casino did a little bit better, but we were able to look past it in favor of the things they do great.
This in-depth review will cover everything you need to know about ECWON, from their withdrawal process to their live casino tables. Everything you need to know to decide if you’ll join the other 15 million players is right here in this guide.
Games and Sportsbook Betting
Once you’ve logged in to your account, you’re greeted by their sportsbook home page and the typical online casino layout. At the top is your account and different tabs to navigate to your withdrawals and whatnot, but right below that are all the different games ECWON offers.
Each tab details a different section of the casino, such as games, sportsbooks, live dealer tables, the lottery, and more. Inside each tab is a list of the different game providers for that section. So if you only like playing slots offered by Yggdrasil, you can easily navigate to them and see what they have to offer. Here’s a quick rundown of each section ECWON offers.
ECWON offers 22 different slot game providers. Each provider can have hundreds of different games available, so the possibilities are almost endless. If you’re not a fan of online slot machines, some providers also offer arcade games, virtual table games, and more, so be sure to check this section out.
We checked out a few different providers, but our favorites were Age of the Gods: King of Olympus since we had a chance at a large jackpot while playing along with Dragon Ride – both games by PT Gaming.
Under the sports tab, ECWON offers 8 total sportsbooks, but 6 focus on real-life sports. All these different sportsbooks mean you’ll be more likely to find a sport or match to bet on. While most of them feature the layout you’re used to if you have bet with a sportsbook before, the S-Sport Lay Correct Score sportsbook had a pretty outdated interface and could use some updating. The other five sportsbooks had modern layouts and a wide variety of games and different types of sports available to bet on. Overall, we were pretty happy with the variety and choices available in their sports betting section.
Players that like to bet on virtual sports or eSport matches will be happy to hear that ECWON has a decent eSportsbook compared to other sites. The SBO Virtual Sportbook is exactly what it sounds like. You’ll be able to bet on virtual football and basketball matches. You can even watch the matches “live” here too.
The IA E-Sportsbook is focused on eSport matches from hit games like Dota 2, League of Legends, and more. There were 209 matches from 14 different games available to bet on when we were checking it out, but there were 26 total games in the list, suggesting that there are plenty of matches available to bet on, depending on the time.
Live Casino Games
Live dealers just add a certain ambiance you’ll find yourself missing if you play virtual tables. While virtual tables are nice because you can control the speed of the game, live dealers will interact with you and make the game feel more human. It’s also nice to see the cards actually get dealt, so you know for certain that the game is fair.
That’s not to say these virtual games are rigged; these casinos must go through lots of hoops and regulatory agencies to exist. They wouldn’t throw it all away to rig a virtual blackjack table. Here’s a quick list of every live casino provider available on ECWON and the games they offer.

While ECWON doesn’t have a tab labeled “Fishing Games,” if you navigate to the Battle tab, you’ll find a few fishing games, among other things. Fishing Games are definitely getting more and more popular, so hopefully, they will add a few more. At the time of our review, there were only 3 game providers available with fishing games, and it was hard to find them amongst all the other virtual games these providers offered.
Lottery and Keno
A little easier to find than their fishing games thanks to the “Lottery” tab at the top of the screen, ECWON offers both online lottery and keno for its players. The lottery is based on the Malaysian lottery, while their Keno seems to be a live/virtual drawing every few minutes. There’s a live person reading the results of the balls as they’re drawn, but the balls seem to be green-screened and virtually done on a computer. This shouldn’t affect the legitimacy of the drawings as they’re regulated by PAGCOR and have different security certificates, but this often puts players off since it’s not a physical drawing.
Bonuses and Promotions
ECWON has a variety of promotions and bonuses available for both new players and veterans to take advantage of. Bonuses and promotions are subject to change, and new ones are constantly added, so keep an eye on their promotion tab to stay in the loop. Here’s a quick list of the evergreen promotions we saw during our review.

Deposits and Withdrawals
Both deposits and withdrawals and ECWON are handled through the same methods: bank transfers and A9Wallet. A9Wallet is an app you can download on your mobile device and works the same way as an eWallet. For bank transfers, here’s a quick list of the different banks available on ECWON that you can use.
|Bank Transfers Malaysia||AmBank, Affin, Agro Bank, Alliance, Bank Islam, Bank Muamalat, Bank Rakyat, BSN, CIMB, Hong Leon, HSBC, Kuwait Finance House, MayBank, Public, RHB, Standard Chartered, UOB|
|Bank Transfers Singapore||CIMB, HSBC, MayBank, OCBC, POSB/DBS, RHB, Standard Chartered, Trust Bank, UOB|
ECWON’s customer support was actually very helpful and quick to respond. We typically try to test out a few different methods of customer support on each site, but their 24/7 Live Chat was so quick, informative, and helpful that we were satisfied with it alone. We asked a few different questions about some different processes at their casino, and the customer service agent quickly responded with non-automated messages.
Some sites take forever to get a response, and it’s clear they’re trying to find the answer themselves, but the agents at ECWON seem to know their site in and out. You can also use WhatsApp, Telegram, and WeChat to contact their customer support, but we suggest using their Live Chat based on our own experience with it.
Licensing and Security
If you’re worried about licensing and security at ECWON, worry not. They’re fully licensed and regulated by the Phillippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR). You can even check their license at the bottom of their page to verify its legitimacy. PAGCOR is not a business that you can just throw money at for a license either.
While they have the word corporation in their name, they’re actually a government-run organization and regulate hundreds of online casinos around the world. PAGCOR licenses and regulates the majority of the casinos we review, or we should say, the majority of online casinos that exist.
How to Make an Account at ECWON
Making an account at ECWON is simple. As long as you’re 18 years of age or older and in a country where gambling is illegal, you can make an account. They say they only support Malaysia and Singapore, but we had no problem connecting from another country where online gambling was legal. However, you may have problems attempting to deposit and withdraw money since they only take Malaysian and Singaporean banks as well as run into some issues with game providers that only accept Malaysian or Singaporean IP addresses.
With that said, to create an account, just click the register button at the top right of the screen on their homepage and enter the following information:
- Full Name
- Mobile Number
- Preferred Currency
- Affiliate Code
How to Download ECWON Mobile Apps
To download ECWON mobile casino apps, head on over to this page and scan the QR code that corresponds to your mobile device. They currently offer apps for Android, iOS, and Huawei devices. If you are currently on your mobile device and unable to scan QR codes, there is a link on that page that you can click, find your operating system, and download the app.
All in all, we were pleasantly surprised with what ECWON had to offer. We won’t lie, the site seems a little outdated interface-wise for 2023, but they know what they’re doing. They had a nice variety of sportsbooks, gaming providers, and live tables available for players, as well as things like fishing games, lottery, and keno. On top of that, their customer service was top notch, and we had one of the better Live Chat conversations we’ve ever had at an online casino. While we would have liked to see crypto as a withdrawal and deposit option, if you have a bank account in Malaysia or Singapore, you shouldn’t have any problems. To sum it up, if you’re looking for a new site to play at or dip your toes into, ECWON is definitely a decent choice to go with.
