Play’n GO’s new fiat and Bitcoin slot release will unleash strategic minds with unique gameplay. Mahjong 88, the developer’s new slot title, is out in the market this month to introduce a revolutionary take on the popular 19th-century tile game. It offers modern entertainment, authentic Chinese symbols, and unique slot features.
The launch of Mahjong 88 was led by Play’n GO CEO, Johan Törnqvist: “We’re very proud of what we have created here with Mahjong 88. Not only is it our very first 8×8 grid slot, but we carefully curated the design to add a rich authenticity to the Mah-jong based theme. It’s no secret that we’re going to be putting out a high number of games this year, and this is just one example of the high quality and innovation that every single title will carry.”
Gameplay and Theme
The slot features an 8×8 grid, completely following the game structure of Mahjong. It is playable from 10p to £100 per spin on all desktop and mobile devices. The software provider carefully crafted the game to balance the traditional look of Mahjong and the modern features of online slots, so you’ll see a lot of traditional Chinese symbols with modern designs.
The game is divided into four seasons (winter, autumn, summer, and spring), so you might feel like playing different rounds in one sitting. Each season has its own types of wilds and season bonus, but the rest of the symbols have the same value for all seasons. Players familiar with Mahjong can definitely tell which symbols are low-paying and high-paying. The lotus flower is the most rewarding tile. If you get 12 or more of this symbol, you can receive payouts 500 times your original stake. Like the real Mahjong, there are also concealed and blank tiles in the game. These tiles rotate to reveal a secret adjacent symbol.
Bonuses and Features
Tile combinations are winning combinations, so you need to understand some of the basics in Mahjong to enjoy the game’s features and bonuses. There are two unique features you can trigger while playing: The Fortune Frog and the Super Charge.
Fortune Frog – this can be triggered when you get 33 winning combinations. If you’re short of combinations, the Fortune Frog will grant you Croak, Spawn, Tongue, and Hope effects instead. Each effect has different symbol sets with more winning combinations.
Super Charge – this can be triggered when you overcharge the Frog Meter with 34 or more winning combinations. All winning combinations subject to this feature give 5x multiplier.
