The famous developer of online casino games, Play’n GO has recently added an interesting new release to its extensive portfolio of slots.
Titled Mahjong 88, the newly-launched game represents a modern take of the popular tile game dating back to the 19th century.
A Familiar Theme with a Twist
Apart from action-packed gameplay and plenty of potentials to win, the new game is the first-ever slot released by Play’n GO to feature an 8-reel 8-row layout. The game has no traditional paylines on offer, and instead features the Cluster Pays system, awarding payouts when a minimum of four symbols appear in a cluster.
The reels are populated with traditional Mahjong symbols, which helped the slot preserve the classic feel of the Chinese tile-based game, despite the fact this is a new release with amenities of a modern video slot.
Whenever players succeed in forming a winning combination, the symbols will be removed from the screen, with new ones uncovered from fresh tiles which turn over to reveal the symbol hiding on the other side of the tile.
Mahjong 88 comes packed with exciting and potentially lucrative features. The game is divided into four seasons, while each of them features its own Wild symbol. Once a season is completed, players will receive the Season Bonus, which will increase with each subsequent win.
Next to the grid is the Mahjong Meter, which gets filled whenever a winning combination is formed. To do so, you’ll require a total of 33 tiles, and once you manage to do so you’ll trigger one of the four Fortune Frog features on offer.
The first Fortune Frog feature will continue to fill up the meter, activating the Super Charge feature when a minimum of 88 tiles get matched. This will result in all wins being multiplied by five.
Commenting on the launch of the new game, Johan Tornqvist, Chief Executive Officer at Play’n GO, said his company was very proud of Mahjong 88 and added the slot had been carefully designed to add a rich authenticity to the Mahjong-based theme.
Mahjong 88 can be played at any online casino powered by Play’n GO.
