Residents play mahjong in Malabon, Metro Manila, Philippines March 21, 2015. When paying your final respects for a relative or friend, the last thing you might expect to see at the wake is people placing bets on a card game or bingo. Not in the Philippines. Filipinos, like many Asians, love their gambling. But making wagers on games such as "sakla", the local version of Spanish tarot cards, is particularly common at wakes because the family of the deceased gets a share of the winnings to help cover funeral expenses. Authorities have sought to regulate betting but illegal games persist, with men and women, rich and poor, betting on anything from cockfighting to the Basque hard-rubber ball game of jai-alai, basketball to spider races. Many told Reuters photographer Erik De Castro that gambling is only an entertaining diversion in a country where two-fifths of the population live on $2 a day. But he found that some gamble every day. Casino security personnel told of customers begging to be banned from the premises, while a financier who lends gamblers money at high interest described the dozens of vehicles and wads of land titles given as collateral by those hoping lady luck would bring them riches.

A group of people play mahjong, a traditional Chinese game, at the cafeteria in the Cherish-Yearn care center in Shanghai September 14, 2012. Beijing wants to encourage investment in healthcare services. In January, China reclassified the sector as "permitted" rather than "restricted", meaning overseas companies can own 100 percent of an operation in China. Overseas players including New York-based hedge fund Fortress Investment Group LLC and China Senior Care, backed by one of the principals of U.S. private developer Lerner Enterprises, are also investing in elderly care and retirement facilities, betting that the demographic fallout from China's one-child policy will soften traditional attitudes towards out-of-home care.

China's Treyo Leisure and Entertainment Limited chairman Mao Ling poses for a photograph with an automatic mahjong table in Melbourne November 19, 2008. Treyo, with a factory in Hangzhou, southern China, makes mahjong tables that automatically shuffle and sort the game's 144 tiles. It is one of only dozens of companies still in the queue of upcoming IPOs in Asian markets and among an even rarer group who claim to be "quietly confident" their listings will go ahead.

Dust settles on mahjong tiles sitting on a playing table left after a strong earthquake hit Yongan county in Mianyang City, Sichuan province May 14, 2008. Yongan has become a ghost town. Its residents are either dead, evacuated, or camping out in the local school yard. In one house, mahjong tiles sit on a playing table, as though in the middle of a game, lacking only the players and the cacophony of sound and clacking of the pieces that normally accompanies it.

A woman poses as she arranges a paper mahjong set made by funerary company, Skea, in Taipei November 23, 2007. Skea, a 3-month-old Taipei store that has nothing to do with Ikea, sells custom-made, small-scale buildings as well as cars, boats, baseball mitts or just about anything else that can be made from paper, cardboard and light wood. Families of the deceased buy these items at more than $1,000 a piece for loved ones who wanted the items in life but for health or financial reasons couldn't get them.
