Game Items

We offer a set of features aimed at making your mahjong experience as comfortable as it can be!

1. Open Wall
Have you ever wondered how close were you to claiming that tile you needed for the whole deal? Now you can use the Open Wall feature at the end of each deal – and see the rest of the wall, along with the Dead Wall – turned over. Now you can satisfy your curiosity with a single click of the mouse on the Open Wall button. 10 Open Wall uses are only 10 Golden Coins!

2. Time Bank
For times when you’re surrounded by distractions during the game – you can purchase additional time for making your decision. Use the Time Bank feature that adds up to 30 seconds per deal for you to discard or claim a tile! Check the hour-glass timer during your turn for how much time you have left! A total of 100 seconds or 200 seconds are worth 100 and 200 Golden Coins.

3. Coffee Break
If you need a short break after a deal – whether it's a coffee refill, or a bathroom situation – use the Coffee Break feature to get 3 minutes between a deal! 10 or 20 uses are worth 100 and 200 Golden Coins!

4. Voice Chat
You can also make your playing much brighter with the Voice Chat feature! You can send voice comments along with smiley faces during the game! Click on the smiley button and select the emotion you wish to express. 10 uses are worth only 10 Golden Coins!.

Important: Please note that you have 2 seconds after each deal to use the Coffee Break and the Open Wall features - so be quick! Both activation buttons are located on the Total Score menu when the deal ends.
