Mahjong is a game played with tiles among four players (or a different number depending on the rules). It is a slow-paced game that requires skill and calculation, as well as time to learn and understand the rules. Players seek to create a 'legal hand' using no more than 14 tiles in their pile.
In the heart of Middle East, Syria is home to the oldest human civilizations and cultural heritage. Until 2011, it was also a hub for business and investment. Traditionally all gambling, including online gambling, has been illegal, and religious sectors oppose its legalization. In practice however, online casinos are available and individual gamblers are usually not prosecuted.
