In Japan, gambling other than public gambling is gambling and a criminal offense.[Annotation 3] On the other hand, in countries such as the United States where gambling between individuals is legal in principle on a liberal basis, it is not only one of the common people's culture, such as playing poker while drinking beer at each other's house with friends, but each one Bring in the same amount of stakes and the winner will finally monopolize all participants' stakesStakes methodGambling itself has almost no image of a crime, such as the fact that the game is broadcast on TV.In addition, mahjong as a pure competition, not as gamblingCompetition mahjongOr call it no-rate mahjong.

Mahjong is a zero-sum game (the total score of all players is always constant:Zero sum games), So it is easy to convert the exchange of points into the exchange of stakes as it is.In addition to being a thinking game, it also has a strong accidental element, and it is easy to get used to as a gambling because both luck and ability are reflected in the results.

結果に従ってやりとりする金額は普通、ウマ等を考慮した得失点1000点につき何円というレートが設定される。1000点あたり10円なら「点1(テンイチ)」、50円なら「点5(テンゴ)」、100円なら「ピン」(または「テンピン」)、200円なら「リャンピン」、1000円なら「デカピン」、10000円なら「デカデカピン」と言われる。日本の法律および判例では金銭については額の多少に関わらず一時の娯楽に供するものとは見なされない(大審院13th year of TaishoMay 2, MostShowa 23May 10Etc.), so in principle for all these ratesGamblingIs established. In 2011, a relatively small amount of 5 Jakuso was also caught. The case of betting a large amount of money, such as setting a high rate of over 1000 yen per 1000 points, means that it will be held in one room of the condominium in secret.Mansion MahjongAnd so on.

Other gambling (casinoAnd many things that are done inPublic competitionEtc.), which is different from the fact that different losses are made after the game depending on the movement of the point stick.Deduction rateAlthough it is difficult to calculate, it is exceptionally high for gambling compared to public competitions etc.Especially at low rates of 1000 points and 20 yen or less, the deduction rate may even exceed 100%.。例として1000点20円、2の2-4のレートで場代が1人250円の場合で30000点丁度の一人浮きトップを取った場合を例に取ればトップ者の収入(=敗者の支出合計)は800円であるがこれに対しハウスが徴収するコミッション(控除額)は1000円となる。したがって、The deduction rate will be 125%.

If the loser is not paid by the person (for example, if there is a sponsor at the tournament and the winner is offered a prize), or if the winner's profit does not fall into the hands of the person, it is a gambling offense. No.

When unspecified guests surround the table at Jakuso, the official rate is often set by Jakuso so that there is no conflict in the rate setting.This official rate isA horseIt is posted outside the store together with "Wind speed" etc.EuphemismIt is often shown with an illustration of the dice.For example, if you say "wind speed 0.5", it means that the rate is 1000 yen for 50 points.

Many sparrow cottages are called deposits, and sometimes they deposit 5000 to 1 yen from customers, so even if the customer loses and runs out of stock, they can pay a certain amount.Also, if that isn't enough, there is also a sparrow cottage called "out" where the store makes up for the shortfall.
