Where to place the mahjong machine at home, if the home space is small, it is recommended to buy a folding mahjong table or a mahjong machine that can be used as a dining table.

Style: folding style vs dining table style
At present, the latest mahjong machine is divided into two styles, folding style and dining table style.
