If you're a Manga fan, Super Graphics Upside Down is about to turn your world around with its multicoloured upbeat Japanese theme, and Manga-inspired characters such as Satsuki.
It's a five-reel online slot by Realistic Games that plays like a dream on mobiles and desktops, and offers an extremely broad betting range of 20p to £200 per spin. Super Graphics Upside Down comes with Realistic's Real2Reel Feature that makes you feel as though you're playing the slot in an actual casino, and there are several fruit machine-style symbols that should appeal to players who like classic slots and fruit machines. There are wild substitutions, scatter awards that pay up to 250 times your bet, and a free spins feature that gives the game its unusual name by flipping the reels around 180 degrees.

Appearance and Sound Effects
Super Graphics Upside Down offers you two ways to view the game via the Real2Reel Feature. Click once to zoom out and take a better look at the virtual casino floor which comes complete with other slots cabinets, and click again to zoom in for a closer look at the game screen.
A lucky waving cat sits at the top of the reels next to the game logo, and to each side of the reels, there are brightly-coloured stars and Japanese symbols against a striped pink-and-blue background.
A fast-paced soundtrack that's like a cross between pop music and games console music accompanies the playing experience, and an intermittent commentary is provided by your host, Satsuki.
The symbols include a mix of traditional fruit machine symbols like 7s, grapes, lemons, melons, and blueberries, and Manga-themed symbols like the waving cat and the three cartoon characters. All of the symbols (including the wild) can appear stacked on the reels for bigger winning opportunities.
Bonuses and Special Features
The blue "WILD" symbol that's surrounded by cartoon hearts represents the wild symbol in Super Graphics Upside Down, and it can substitute for the three Manga-inspired characters, the waving cat, the 7, the lemon, the blueberries, the grapes, and the melon to create wins.
The Super Graphics Upside Down game logo is the scatter symbol, and it pays you two times, forty times or two hundred and fifty times your bet whenever it lands three, four or five times anywhere on the screen. Three or more scatters also trigger the Free Spins Bonus, giving you fifteen free games.
In the Free Spins Bonus, it's possible to win as much as five thousand times your stake per line! Before you take your first free spin, the reels are turned upside-down (causing the symbols themselves to appear upside-down, we might add) so that you can create different and more generous winning combinations. There's also the opportunity to gain more free spins by landing three or more scatters anywhere on the reels, but if you reach the top payout of five thousand times your stake, the feature ends.
Super Graphics Upside Down uses five reels, three rows of symbols, and twenty non-fixed paylines, and has an average RTP (Return to Player Rate) of 95.25%. The game lets you create winning combos using matching symbols in succession from the leftmost reel to the rightmost reel.
The game is designed to work with desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets, and includes mobile-optimised game controls when played on mobile devices.
Super Graphics Upside Down is as fun to play as it looks. In the base game, the highest-paying symbols mostly come stacked on the right-hand side, so when the Free Spins Bonus kicks in and reverses the playing area, you get all of the most valuable symbols right where you need them on Reels 1, 2, and 3.
