Riichi Mahjong

It is with deepest regret that Mahjong Australia informs the world mahjong enthusiasts and professionals that the Riichi Mahjong Tournament on April 2nd will no longer guarantee a $25,000 prize money purse for the upcoming $550 High Rollers Riichi tournament in Sydney due to the withdrawal of our online partner. The Riichi tournament will still go ahead as planned and Mahjogn Australia will ensure a minimum prize pool of $10,000 for this tournament without any help from overseas affiliates. Any players wishing to participate in the Riichi tournament will also receive free entry into our $30,000 Baida tournament, $12,500 tournament and $100,000 Mahjong Masters which remain unchanged. 
Mahjong Australia sincerely apologies for the changes to the Riichi tournament but insists the 2018 Mahjong Masters tournament series will still be the largest and most dominant mahjong tournament series in the world. 
We look forward to welcoming all our international and domestic guests in April for what will be the most predominant mix of mahjong styles every offered in a mahjong tournament series. 

Good Luck at the tables!
Team Mahjong Australia
