International players may be allowed depending on the country.
A Closer Look at Ten188
Ten188 is a new up-and-coming casino based out of South East Asia. This online casino focuses on Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, but players from other countries can also bet here. Just double-check your local online gambling laws to make sure it’s not illegal for you to bet online.
Since Ten188 is relatively new to the scene, they are lacking in some areas, but they make up for it with excellent welcome bonuses and promos aimed at attracting new players and keeping their existing player base happy. If you’re looking to switch casinos or start betting online, definitely consider Ten188 and their welcome bonus for new players.
If you’re worried about betting with a site that’s so new, just know that they’re regulated and licensed by PAGCOR, the Philippine Gaming Corporation. PAGCOR is a government organization. Unlike what the name suggests. It’s not a business that will license any online casino after they pay an application fee. They have to go through a whole process to get approved and display the license.
Ten188 is poised to be one of the largest online casinos in the Pacific region and has great potential. If you’re considering betting with this online casino, make sure to read the rest of this review, where we cover everything about this site, from their withdrawal process down to their sportsbook and games.
Games and Sportsbook Betting
Ten188 doesn’t exactly have the widest selection when it comes to games compared to other sites, but they have a decent enough catalog to keep you entertained and coming back. The main thing is that they’ve covered all their bases and have a sportsbook, slots, live dealers, and keno. Since they are new to the scene, we do expect them to add more games as they make more agreements with game providers. Here’s a brief review of everything they have so far.
Ten188 has a total of four different providers for online slots and arcade games, with a total of 122 games across all the providers. The nice thing about Ten188’s slot section is that you can play any of the games for free to test them out. Some sites don’t let you play demo versions of their games, but Ten188 understands that players like to test games before putting money down. We tried a few; our favorites were Royal Katt and Journey to the Wild.
Some sites just have one centralized sportsbook, but Ten188 has three separate sports betting providers to choose from. We checked each one out, and they were all generally the same. SBOBet had the most games available to bet on, but MaxBet and CMD368 had a larger variety of games to choose from.
While Ten188 doesn’t have a section just for betting on eSport matches, two of their sportsbooks have eSport betting sections. CMD368 and MaxBet both have eSport sections, but CMD368 had a larger amount of matches available to bet on at the time of our review. You could bet on the usual popular games like Dota 2, CS:GO, Starcraft 2, and less popular games like Brawl Stars and Mobile Legends.
Live Casino Games
Like their slots section, they don’t have a lot of gaming providers available for their live casino games. That said, they still do cover all of the usual table games as well as games that are more popular in South East Asia, like Pok Deng, Dragon Tiger, and Andar Bahar.
Live dealers are definitely the way to go if you like playing table games. Virtual table games lack the appeal of a live dealer that you can interact with. It also doesn’t feel the same when cards are made from pixels and shown on screen. A live dealer drawing physical cards makes the game feel more realistic and interactive. Here are the game providers at Ten188, along with the games each provider offers.
|Evolution||Roulette, Blackjack, Baccarat, Sic Bo, Dragon Tiger, Fan Tan, Poker, Game Shows|
|Sexy Baccarat||Baccarat, Dragon Tiger, Dice Games, Roulette|
|SA Gaming||Baccarat, Andar Bahar, Dragon Tiger, Roulette, Pok Deng, Sic Bo|
|AllBet||Baccarat, Roulette, Dragon Tiger, Pok Deng, Sic Bo, HiLo, Bull Bull, Win3, 3Pictures,|
|Big Gaming||Baccarat, Roulette, Sic Bo, Dragon Tiger, Bull Bull, Win3, RedBlack, War, Se Die|
Fishing games are definitely popular in South East Asia, so it’s no surprise that Ten188 has a tab dedicated to fishing games. Again, slim pickings here, but we can expect more to be added in the future. If you don’t like fishing games because of the focus on fish, they do have a Zombie fishing game that you might enjoy. Instead of shooting at fish, take on Zombies and a chance to win big. Fishing games are nice to switch to if you’re getting tired of slots or want to relax from live tables for a while.
While Ten188 doesn’t have a lottery-style drawing akin to the Powerball in America or the Thai lottery, they do offer Keno via the game provider QQKeno. Keno is a fun game of chance that is popular almost everywhere in the world. There are drawings happening every ten seconds, so you won’t have to wait long to figure out if you won big.
If you’d rather bet on lottery drawings rather than Keno, check out the SBOBet sportsbook. They have a small section where you can bet on some Chinese and Indian lottery drawings. It’s not the same as playing numbers for a lottery drawing, but it might help scratch that itch.
Bonuses and Promotions
Ten188 is definitely one of the better sites we’ve seen when it comes to welcome bonuses. Depending on what type of games you like, you may choose one bonus over another. Their sportsbook bonus is definitely the best one. Make sure you note the turnover rates to understand the difference between the 100% and 50% sportsbook bonuses.
Remember, these welcome bonuses cannot be combined and can only be redeemed by one account. Any accounts using the same information or IP address will be forfeited.
New Player One-Time Welcome Bonuses
|Product||Bonus||Min. Deposit||Max. Bonus|
|Sportsbook Welcome Bonus||100%||MYR 50||MYR 1188||x18|
|Sportsbook Welcome Bonus||50%||MYR 50||MYR 1188||x8|
|Live Casino Welcome Bonus||20%||MYR 50||MYR 1000||x12|
|Slots Welcome Bonus||100%||MYR 50||MYR 288||x20|
Any Ten188 member can refer friends and receive a bonus of 50 MYR for every friend referred. Your friends must deposit 500 MYR, and they must bet 500 MYR within seven days. Once they’ve done that, you’ll receive your bonus of 50 MYR. Remember, bonuses are subject to one account per IP address. Multiple accounts operating on the same IP address are strictly against Ten188’s rules.
While Ten188 does have a VIP section on their site, it is currently under construction. We can only assume it will be added at a later date. Keep an eye out for it because if it’s as good as their welcome bonuses, it’s definitely something you’ll want to be part of.
Deposits and Withdrawals
Deposits and withdrawals at Ten188 are handled the same way. You can deposit funds using any of the banks listed in the table below. Unfortunately, there are no other options for depositing funds at Ten188. Hopefully, they add more in the future, but at the time of our review, this is all that was available. If you do not have an account with one of the following banks, you will have to open an account in order to play at Ten188.

Ten188 offers a few different avenues for players to contact them, the best one, of course, being their 24/7 Live Chat. Their Live Chat is available at the bottom right-hand side of the screen. You’ll instantly get connected with an agent who can answer your question and hopefully help with any problem you may have. Besides Live Chat, you can also contact them on WhatsApp, WeChat, and LINE by heading over to the Contact Us page at the bottom of the screen.
Licensing and Security
We understand that it’s hard for players to trust an online casino as new as Ten188, but they seem to have all the necessary licensing and security needed. As we mentioned before, Ten188 is licensed by PAGCOR, the Phillippine Gaming Corporation, a government-run regulatory agency. Many online casinos we review are licensed by either PAGCOR or a Curacao-based organization.

How to Download Ten188 Mobile Apps
Ten188 has a tab marked “Mobile Casino” but it seems that their apps are under construction as neither the Android nor iOS links bring us to an AppStore or download page. Hopefully, Ten188 will fix this problem or release their mobile casino apps soon. Lots of players like to be able to bet on the go and there’s no better way to do so than from a mobile device.
How to Transfer Funds Between Wallets at Ten188
To transfer funds between wallets at Ten188, you’ll first need to log in to your account. Once logged in, hover your mouse over the “My Account” button at the top of the screen. From the drop down menu, select “Transfer”. This will bring you to the transfer hub for your wallet.

Transfering funds is as easy as selecting which wallet you would like to take funds from and which wallet you would like to add funds too. Enter the amount you would like to transfer and click “Transfer” to complete it.
Ten188 has a long way to go if they want to truly compete with the bigger sites, but they’re definitely making a name for themselves with their outstanding welcome bonuses for new players. With that said, they do have to improve in other areas though. While they do cover most games a player would want, adding more game providers for their live casino and slots can’t hurt. They also need to update their mobile apps and add more deposit methods as bank transfers just aren’t enough in a world where eWallets and crypto also exist. All-in-all, check Ten188 out if you want to take advantage of their excellent new player bonuses, but don’t expect too much beyond that.
