Mahjong 88 is an 8 by 8 grid game from Play'n Go that uses a cluster pays system. The Chinese themed game will not only remind you of the classic Chinese mahjong board game, but it is also reinforced with unique features. There are four wilds, which correspond to 4 seasons where you can collect wilds to boost your payouts. The game also has 3 different features that can also help to swell out your winnings.
The exciting board is replicated in the Mahjong 88 slot, where there is a charging meter that triggers some of the bonus features. The game also follows a unique cascading reels feature where symbols are revealed from underneath the grid. This is different from the usual cascading of the symbols from above.
The Chinese theme is evident throughout the game, where the reels are enclosed in a frame bearing the famed Chinese dragons. The board is made of tile symbols borrowed from the Mahjong game. These include dot suits, bamboo tiles, and flower tiles.
The purple lotus flower tiles symbol is the highest paying of the symbols in Mahjong 88. It is worth up to 500 times your stake when you get 12 of them on a cluster. It is followed by the Red flower, paying 250 times for 12 on a cluster, the yellow flower, worth 100X for 12 on a cluster, and the Pink flower paying 60X for 12 on a cluster. The dot symbols are the lowest paying and worth 12X to 20X for 12 on a cluster.
There are 4 types of wilds, which represent different seasons. They include the Spring, Summer, Winter, and Autumn wilds.
The blank symbols in Mahjong 88 contain mystery symbols. To win, you must land 4 to 12 or more symbols in a cluster connected both vertically and horizontally.

Special Bonus Features
Mahjong 88 is developed with special bonus features to improve the overall payouts that you get from the game. This includes special wilds and a mahjong Meter that is charged with every round, which triggers the Fortune Frog and SuperCharge Meter.
Blank tiles rotate and are revealed as secret adjacent symbols.
Special Wild Seasons Features
The special wilds seasons features are triggered randomly on non-winning spins. The seasons change randomly and award a season bonus when a season changes and grows by 10%.
- Spring Wilds- up to 12 wilds are randomly added to the grid

- Autumn Wilds- up to 11 wilds fall down the grid and also destroys some symbols around the edges
- Winter Wilds- It grants up to 4 sticky wilds, which are not removed when they are part of a winning cluster
Mahjong Meter Features
Once the Mahjong Meter is fully charged, any of the 2 features can be triggered as follows:
Fortune Frog Feature
It is triggered when the Frog Fortune Feature is filled with 33 winning symbols. A non-winning cluster will then randomly trigger any of the frog fortune features to boost your wins.
- Croak– A set of symbols will behave and pay like scatters instead of the usual cluster pays
- Spawn-a set of symbols transforms into a different, better-paying symbol
- Tongue-2 edges can also be chosen, and the symbols between the edges transformed into another higher paying symbol
- Hop- A chosen symbol transforms and removes the adjacent symbols creating room for more combinations
Supercharged Frog Meter
Filling the meter with 88 winning symbols supercharges the feature. All your wins get a win multiplier of 5X.
