Mahjong Club has the above table rates for each rule.

The payment calculation method for each rate is explained in the next section.

**2. Stake payment calculation methods**

The stake payment calculation at the end of the game consists of only the following two.

- Ranking Bonus-50%
- Points – 50%

The table rate is written such as “5.00 / 10.00”.

The way to read this rate notation is as follows.

**€ 5.00 on the left – Ranking bonus****€ 10.00 on the right minus € 5.00 on the left (=€ 5.00) – Points****€ 10.00 on the right – The minimum amount required to participate**

**[Example: In the case of Japanese Riichi Mahjong East Only 10.00 / 20.00]**

- Ranking Bonus – € 10.00 on the left
- Points – Right-to-left difference € 10.00
- The minimum amount required to participate – € 20.00 on the right

**“Ranking bonus”**

If the ranking bonus is €10, the ranking bonus allocation for each rule is as follows.

**For Japanese Riichi Mahjong, Hong Kong Mahjong, Taiwan Mahjong**

1st place: + € 10

2nd place: + € 5

3rd place: – € 5

4th place : – € 10

**For 3 player Japanese Riichi Mahjong**

1st place: + € 10

2nd place: 0

3rd place: – € 10

**“Points”**

If Points is €10, then 25000 points = € 10.

So 1000 points is worth about € 0.4.

The standard value is 25,000 points.

If you have 25,000 points or more, the points increased from 25,000 points will be calculated as a plus.

On the other hand, if you have 25,000 points or less, the points deducted from 25,000 points will be calculated as minus.

Of course, if you have exactly 25,000 points, the payment for the points will be 0.

* In the case of three-player mahjong, the standard value is 35,000 points.

* In the case of Hong Kong Mahjong, the standard value is 200 points.

**“The minimum amount required to participate”**

The minimum amount required to participate is the maximum loss you will pay if you are at the bottom with 0 points or less.

For example, if the minimum amount required to participate is € 20 and you are at the bottom with 0 points or less, you will have to pay € 20.

* The maximum loss amount to be paid is the same whether you are at the bottom with 0 points or at the bottom with -10000 points.

**3. Rake**

Rake is only collected from the winners.

**In the case of East Only – 10% of the winning amount****In the case of Full Game – 15% of the winning amount**

* Losers do not have to pay any rakes.

**Example (East Only):**

- If you win € 5, you will be charged rakes of “€ 0.5” and your final earned amount will be “€ 4.5”.
- If you win € 30, you will be charged rakes of “€ 3” and your final earned amount will be “€ 27”.
- If you lose, you will not be charged any rakes.
