3 Jul 2012
"Mahjong Logic is thrilled to have King58.com sign up as our newest licensee," said Jonas Alm, Mahjong Logic CEO. "Their appetite for online mahjong reaffirms our belief that the game will only get larger with worldwide players increasing rapidly. 2012 is shaping up to be another banner year for our company.”
Online gaming throughout the Asia region has grown at a tremendous rate, indicating that mahjong, Asia’s most popular game, will have a major upside in growth. The game has historically been widely played at all ages and in all regions throughout China. Chairman Mao Zedong once said that mahjong is one of three Chinese national treasures contributing to the world.
"Mahjong Logic has made our transition to online mahjong a very smooth one," said Collette Young, Managing Partner of King58.com. “Our players will have an opportunity to seamlessly move in and out of online mahjong while still enjoying all the other key games we offer simultaneously. Our company is hopeful to help make online mahjong as popular throughout the world as online poker is today.”
