Mahjong 88 Slot by Play N Go: In Chinese culture the number ’88’ is associated with good luck and fortune and considered to be the luckiest number. The word fā (发, which implies 发财, or wealth, in Mandarin or Cantonese) is similar to the number 8. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/88_(number) Mahjong 88 from Play ‘N Go is based on the Asian game of the same name and played on a grid that is 8 by 8. It is a high variance video slot that offers a jackpot (non-progressive) of 5,000x your stake.
Bets start at £0.10 to £100 playable on mobile phones and PCs. If we break down the game’s bonus rounds it offers Cluster wins, Fortune Frog and Super Charge features with multiplier wins of 5x. Payouts are enhanced by the four seasons (Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter) each with its own distinct wild. New to playing slots?

The graphics of Mahjong 88 is simple but effective while the symbols appear in a grid formation. Payouts occur when they appear in a cluster formation adjacent to the same symbol whether it is vertical or horizontal. The tiles on the grid are represented by dots, bams, 4 wilds and 4 different kinds of flowers. The premium symbol is the lotus flower tile, 12 of them on the grid at the maximum wager (£100) pays 500x your stake. There are rotating tiles on the grid they are hidden symbols that is revealed after a certain amount of spins.
Mahjong 88 has a RTP (average return to player percentage) of 96.62%.
MahJong 88 Slot Bonus Modes
The Fortune Frog Meter is charged when you scored 33 winning combinations. Even if you do not form any winning combinations one of the following features will be triggered randomly:
- Croak – A symbol is picked giving scatter wins as opposed to adjacent positions.
- Spawn – One randomly picked symbol is transferred to another symbol.
- Tongue – Two symbol edges are selected which transforms to a randomly picked symbol.
- Hope – A symbol is picked randomly that destroys adjacent symbols
The number ’88’ plays a prominent role throughout the game, if you succeed in charging the Frog Meter with 88 winning symbols you will initiate the Super Charge bonus round. Each win has a multiplier of 5x attached to it.
There are 4 Seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter each with its own wild, when no winning combinations are formed the wilds jump into action. The wilds replace adjacent symbols when they form winning combinations. Once the Fortune Frog bonus is triggered each season features the following:
- Spring – As much as 12 wilds can pop up any position across the grid.
- Summer – When adjacent symbols are destroyed up to 5 wilds can pop it.
- Autumn – A maximum of 12 symbols that turn adjacent symbols into wilds or they can be destroyed.
- Winter – When no winning combinations occur a maximum of 4 wilds pitch.
The seasons change after every 25 to 99 spins, the seasonal cycle starts with Spring and ends with Winter. Winning combinations increases the payout you receive in the Season Bonus. Every time there is a symbol win it increases by 10%.
It is refreshing to see that Play N’ Go is not afraid to experiment with new ideas (grid slots). Personally we are not into Mahjong 88 since it targets a specific clientele (Chinese). It all boils down to the Cluster pays mechanic especially during the Super Charge (most lucrative) bonus where each win is augmented by a multiplier of 5x.
The volatility is an eight out of ten so be careful, the top cash prize of 5,000x your stake on a single spin makes the game worthwhile. If you like the concept we recommend another grid slots titled Contact, otherwise you can play Phoenix Reborn (adjacent to the same symbol) from the same developer.
