Playing Mahjong is common pastime for Chinese people. It is common to see people of all ages sitting around a table playing mahjong. The stakes vary. The chips can be worth anywhere from several yuan to tens of thousands of yuan depending on the wherewithal of the players. A proposal on Mahjong has received feedback from Wuhan Municipal police. According to the notice, playing mahjong with family members, with no intention of gaining profits, is not regarded as gambling and immune to punishment. And individuals who participate in playing mahjong with average money of 1000 yuan are also exempted from administrative punishment. Is Mahjong a way of entertainment or kind of gambing? What do you think?

Anything can be turned into a gambling game really. Even if the players themselves don't do it, others can make it a gamble. In many foreign countries people gamble for money on politics, song contests, whatever they can.
