The growing legions of Mahjong fans will have an ultimate competition to look forward to this year - a Mahjong World Cup.
The company specialising in licensing software for this ancient game with a massive modern following, Dynasty Gaming Inc., says that it is to jointly create and sponsor the first World Cup of Mahjong tournament during December 2006.
Dynasty's partner for this first-ever tournament will be the Ho Group, the largest operator of casinos in Macau, off the coast of China, where the event will be held.
Dynasty is associated with Mahjong Mania, which was established in 2003 by Intertops co-founder Ian Sherrington. Ian is a member of the management team and has been a Mahjong aficionado since childhood, when he first played the game at school. Although he never played for money as a youngster, as an adult he wagered the game would be a big online winner. A little research uncovered an unfilled need for real-money, multi-player Mahjong on the Net. Much creative contemplation later sparked the development of the first edition of Speed Mahjong.
Mahjong Mania is a wholly owned subsidiary of Events International Holding Corporation, a company whose shares are traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange Venture market under the symbol "EIH". . The company’s software development team is located in Montreal, Canada while the sales and marketing initiatives are undertaken by Mahjong Systems Limited, a Turks and Caicos registered company.
Other executives involved in managing the rapidly growing stable of mahjong operators include CEO and chairman Albert Barbusci, Adriaan Brink who is president of the company and Anthony Barbusci who is in charge of finance and corporate affairs.
