Thursday September 1, 2011 : Mahjong-festival.com launched
 
Top online mahjong software developer Mahjong Logic has partnered with white label provider Plus-Five Gaming to launch Mahjong-festival.com this week, timed to take advantage of the interest in the UK's largest land-based Mahjong Festival at London's Hanover Square, in which a large range of tournament play is being presented.
 
Chief executive of Mahjong Logic, Jonas Alm, said the new site continues a positive trend for a record setting year in terms of new licensees for the company, with both on and offline mahjong becoming more mainstream in the gaming world.
 
"We feel there is no better time to launch this new site than immediately prior to the launch of the Mahjong Festival in London," he said. “The event shows the popularity of mahjong worldwide and we are thrilled to be partnered with Plus-Five Gaming as we look to further promote one of the world’s most popular games here in Europe."
 
Mark Jones, marketing and business development director of Plus-Five Gaming, said: "We saw this opportunity to launch our new mahjong offering and at the same time allow our many customers who have asked for online mahjong to immediately take part in both the event and our online brand.  Mahjong to us is looking more and more promising as an emerging game.”
