Games rooms are not gam­bling dens

China Daily (Hong Kong) - - NATION | DIGEST -

Po­lice in Wuhan have ruled that play­ing mahjong in com­mu­nity chess and card rooms isn’t gam­bling, Chutian Metropolis Daily re­ported on Sun­day. The state­ment was made in re­sponse to ear­lier re­ports ask­ing whether play­ing games in such venues con­sti­tutes gam­bling. Ac­cord­ing to po­lice, the venues are pub­lic places of en­ter­tain­ment, the own­ers of which only charge fees for use of the site and ser­vices.
