This Mahjong 88 mobile slot isn’t just like any other casino game, with 8 rows and 8 reels full of beautiful tiles that explode into a world of wilds and features.
There is something a little overwhelming about opening up a huge 8 reel and 8 rows slots full of little coloured tiles of matching flower symbols and domino numbers.
But if you are not familiar with the Play’n GO Grid slot games fear not: this has nothing to do with how the tiles usually work. If you are familiar with the game… well you won’t be able to play as usual, as this is still a slot machine.
However, much like the famous tiled format, the point of this Mahjong 88 slot machine is to match symbols or at least a cluster of symbols of 4 or more.
You get random mystery symbols on the reels, turning into other adjacent symbols. Which is helpful because any win is removed from the Mahjong tile board and more tiles are then added. This continues until no more wins appear.
Explode 33 symbols in one set of avalanche and the frog will randomly spout out special features, like transforming symbols, exploding symbols, and adding sticky wilds to the reels.
It’s a nice touch, and even nicer when you get 88 symbol wins or more because that’s when this Mahjong 88 slot gives you a 5x multiplier on your wins.
How do you win 5,000 times your bet? That’s how.
There are four seasons, and much like the Seasons slot by Yggdrasil, these move from one to the other naturally, in as few as 25 spins to as much as 99 spins.
Each season has its own unique wild symbol, triggered randomly on non-winning spins.
These wilds add a whole new flavour to each of the seasons, giving this slot game a natural flow that helps you get through the dry spells when the frog isn’t being all that friendly.
Plus, all wins contribute to a little Season Bonus which is paid when the season changes. It’s not much usually, maybe around 6x to 20x your bet, but a nice touch to remind you that the next season is only around the corner.

Avalanching wins: When a cluster of winning symbols appear, the explode and disappear, with more tumbling down from above, a little bit like in the Contact slot also by Play'n GO.
Concealed Tiles: These are blank symbols which will rotate to be revealed as a secret adjacent symbol.
Fortune Frog meter: All wins charge up this meter. When you get a total of 33 consecutive winning symbols you get 1 of the following effects triggered:
Super Charge is triggered when over-charging the Fortune Frog meter with 88+ winning symbols. All wins achieved during the game round are multiplied by 5.
Mahjong 88 has 4 seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter. The season can change at the end of any game round, usually somewhere between 25 to 99 spins. The order of progression is fixed: spring to summer to autumn to winter.
Each season has a special wild features:
Each win contributes to a season bonus that gets paid out when the season is over.
We like the fact that this Mahjong 88 slot on mobile looks complicated but plays as simple as any of the other grid based slots you'll find online.
You get clusters of symbol wins and avalanching reels. The more wins you get, the more features you trigger. The seasons change and with it the type of wild feature you get, very much like in Play'n GO's popular Gemix slot game.
Only here you get the chance to win 5,000 times your bet, which is no small sum. In fact, it's a huge sum and one that is worth exploring if you love Mahjong or just grid slots.
Mahjong 88 is an 8x8 reel slot online with 4 seasons and 4 wild feature that move from one to the other, with avalanching reels that the more wins you get the more features you trigger.
