Mahjong 88 Slot Machine
Try Play n Go Slots
Play’n GO has designed a game inspired by the game of skill that originates from China and has gained global popularity in the early 20th century. Mahjong 88 slot is, however, a game of chance, but as interesting and fun as the original tile-based Mahjong game is.
The game is played on an 8x8 grid where you make winning combos by matching clusters of symbols. There is a meter that when you fully charge it triggers the Fortune Frog feature. You fill the meter with any win you make. To fully charge it, you will need to land 33 symbols in one chain reaction win. Should you manage to activate the Fortune Frog feature, you will get 1 of the 4 additional features:
- Hope – a symbol gets chosen at random which will destroy adjacent symbols and transform them
- Croak – a symbol gets chosen at random which will start paying Scattered
- Tongue – two edges get randomly chosen and any symbol that lands between them transforms into another symbol.
- Spawn – a symbol gets chosen at random to transform into another symbol
This is what you get if you charge the meter with 33 symbols. But, if you overcharge it with 88 or more tiles, you trigger the Super Charge feature, where you benefit from a 5x Multiplier. This is when Seasons start to change, each offering unique Wilds. You can trigger the Seasons after any losing spin:
- Winter – up to 4 Wilds are added that Stick on the reels even if they form part of a winning combo
- Spring – up to 12 Wilds are added at random
- Summer – up to 5 Wilds are added while random adjacent symbols get destroyed
- Autumn – up to 11 Wilds are added and there is a chance for other symbols to transform into Wilds or get destroyed from edges
Theme & Design
Mahjong 88 was designed to look exactly like the real Mahjong game, so there’s nothing much left to say about its theme. You will see the tiles in the middle of the grid, with dot and bam suit, 4 season Wilds Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring, 4 different types of flowers out of which the highest-paying one is the Lotus flower, giving you 500x the stake for a cluster with 12 or more symbols. But also, you will find blank tiles which will later rotate to reveal to you a secret symbol.
On both sides of the reels, you will see Mahjong-related elements, the Season Bonus, the Year, and the Fortune Frog meter, and in the background, you will see a green table cloth.
Wagering & Paylines
There are no paylines in Mahjong 88, as mentioned because Play’n GO has designed it to be an 8x8 grid slot where matching symbols in clusters give you a payout. Therefore, your bets start at $0.10 and can go all the way up to $100.00. There is an average RTP of 96.62% offered in the game.
When it comes to payouts, you should expect anything from 500x the stake with the highest-paying Lotus flower symbol, and up to 5,000x the stake during the Super Charge feature. Should you place the max bet of $100.00, your winnings will be $50,000.00 for the 12-symbol-cluster with the Lotus flower and up to $500,000.00 during the Super Charge feature. This is a rather generous maximum potential, one worth trying the game for.
We cannot say that the theme is quite unique here, but presented really decently. You get all the Mahjong elements that you would need from a Mahjong-themed slot, and you get an incredible 5,000x the stake potential during the most rewarding feature, the Super Charge. That being said, we are recommending you to try out the game because it will provide you with a lot of fun and some amazing payouts.
