Mahjong 88 features an 8×8 grid, and accepts bets between 0.10 and £100 per spin. It employs a cluster pay mechanics. When you form a winning combination comprised of 4-12 symbols, the winning cluster disappears to be replaced by new symbols that can eventually form a new winning combination.
Design-wise, the Mahjong 88 is as close to the real Mahjong game layout as possible. The lotus is the best paying symbol. You will come across 4 different types of flowers as well as 4 wilds. Each wild represents a season – spring, summer, autumn, and winter, respectively.
All wins you score boost the Fortune Frog meter. When it is fully charged, you get one of the following game modifiers:
Croak – a randomly selected symbol pays scatter instead of the standard cluster pays
Spawn – a randomly selected symbol transforms into another symbol
Tongue – symbols on side of the grid are randomly selected. The tongue touches other symbols across the opposite end of the grid. All touched symbols flip to reveal a new symbol
Hope – a randomly selected symbol transforms into adjacent symbols
Super Charge Feature
If you overcharge the meter with more than 88 tiles, the Super charge is activated and all winning combinations get a x5 multiplier.
As for the seasons, they are randomly triggered on a losing spin. Depending on the season you land, you get the following modifiers:
Spring – up to 12 wilds appear on the reels
Summer – up to 5 wilds + destruction of adjacent symbols
Autumn – up to 11 wilds + additional symbols destroyed and being turned into wilds
Winter – 4 sticky wilds
The seasons go as follows: spring-summer-autumn-winter, and each of them lasts 25-99 spins. When a new season is triggered, the season bonus is awarded.
The Mahjong 88 slot seems complicated, which makes it not everyone’s cup of tea. If you prefer the simple, straightforward gameplay, we would recommend the Microgaming slots.
As for Mahjong 88, it has plenty of extras. The magic happens during the Super Charge feature, but even if you do not trigger it, you still have high chances of pocketing a sweet payout.
The Mahjong 88 will go live across all Play’n GO casinos on May 2, 2019.
