Online Mahjong Now Offered on Facebook

by Margaret Oliveira, News Staff Writer

January 23, 2007

One of the fastest growing games on the internet is mahjong. Actually, that depends on where you reside. If you live in Asia, online mahjong has pretty much always been a popular game, since of course, mahjong has always been popular in Asia - before the internet. In the West, mahjong has been slowly catching on. It is here where real money stakes online versions of mahjong is experiencing a surge in popularity. It still may not be as popular as it is in the East, yet it is certainly catching on enough to be a worthwhile commodity to several online casinos and gaming sites.

The latest website to open the doors to mahjong is none other than the immensely popular community website, Facebook. The second chapter to MySpace, if you will, Facebook has over 61 million members, and these numbers seem to continue growing at a staggering rate day by day. So, with online mahjong being offered on such a large site, it is safe to say that mahjong is bound to get even more popular.

I should first clarify that it isn't Facebook itself who is making motions to offer online mahjong. Rather, it is World Mahjong Tour Inc. (fitting isn't it), who is ultimately responsible for bringing the game to Facebook users. The Facebook website will simply serve as a platform for the game. In other words, Facebook has agreed to offer another online gaming diversion to members while logged in their accounts.

The execs at World Mahjong Tour say they are very excited to expand their worldwide offering of online mahjong. They also alluded to an interest in bringing the game to other social community websites. The current offering on Facebook includes both online mahjong and Big Two - another popular game in Asia. Both games can be played in either English or Chinese.
