How to Play the Japanese Solo Mahjong Pro Game

You can adjust the stake level options by simply clicking on the arrows located at the bottom of the game alongside the coin values, and once you are happy with your chosen stake level then all that remains for you to do is to click on the New Game button and then the game will be sent into live play.
Once sent into live play 14 tiles will then be selected and displayed at the foot of the game screen, you now need to use your skill and judgement to select just one of these tiles which is going to be discarded and placed into the Discarded Tiles box.
You need to leave thirteen tiles displayed at the foot of the screen which is just one tile away from being a winning combination, for in the next stage of the game you have to select up to a maximum of three tiles which have been dealt out onto the Tile Wall.
There is a total of twenty four different tiles located face down on the Tile Wall, and as you pick them off one at a time they will be added to your original set of thirteen tiles and should they not form a winning combination the tiles will then be placed on the Discard Tiles box, should none of your selected three tiles form a winning combination then you have lost and the game will end.
However, should any one of the tiles you select from the Tile Wall, when it is added to your original set of thirteen tiles then go on to complete a winning combination, you will be instantly awarded with the winning payout associated with that winning combination and the game will then end.
