Scoring variations

Payments to winner – Internet Mahjong Server scheme

This payoff scheme is used in Internet Mahjong Server rules. If the winning tile is self-drawn or winner is East, the final score is multiplied by 1.5. For self-drawn winning tile each loser pays 1/3. If the winner goes out on discard, discarder alone pays the total score.

The payoff scheme is a sort of a combination of Chinese Modern and Japanese schemes and resembles the Mahjong Masters Million scheme, but accentuates meaning of going out self-drawn.


  East Discarder Others Total
East self-drawn 0.50 1.50
Non-East self-drawn 0.50 0.50 1.50
East on discard 1.50 0 1.50
Non-East on East's discard 1 0 1
Non-East on Non-East's discard 0 1 0 1
