In a huge collection like the one Microgaming offers, finding a slot machine with a manga theme would’ve been impossible in the past, but they seem to have covered that niche as well with this new game. Our Days is just that, a Japanese manga style game, which uses graphics that will be appreciated by fans of the genre.
Otherwise, they seem to have aimed at getting the crowd looking to have some fun, as this is a game with very low volatility, capable of paying only small amounts at best (50x total stake is highest), but which will pay often. Looking at the list of features, there are re-spins, wild symbols, scatters and free spins to be found on it, so that’s another way through which they’re keeping things entertaining. Obviously, having a setup with 5 reels and 243 ways to win will also help with triggering wins often.
Betting and Prizes
This game can be very cheap to play, just as it can be expensive, and it’s the player that picks which one it will be for him. At the lowest level, the wager can be set to just $0.30, at which point you use $0.01 on each pay line. The value of the bet only goes up from there, and at the highest setting it will be worth $1,800, where you’d use $60 per active line.
With top rewards of 50x total stake per spin, or up to $90,000, Our Days is far from impressive for the player, and it doesn’t give him a very good reason to want to try it out. It works as a low volatility game, which pays all the time, so it can be entertaining for those looking to just spend some time. It will not make anyone rich though.
Our Days Slot Features
Moving on to the big features that are available in Our Days, this slot machine is promising several good options, and they start with a fairly common one, the wild symbol.
Wilds are shown as the game’s logo, and they appear on all reels and contribute to all winning combinations forming on the columns that they’re on. Since they’re part of a slot with ways to win, there aren’t major limitations in regards to the position that needs to be occupied by the wilds. It is enough for them to just be present on the right reel. What I didn’t like about the wild, is that only the base game spins get it, so it’s removed from the reels for the free games.
Another good feature to have, both for the base game and for the free spins, is the Re-Spin. You get this one every single time that you form winning combinations. The game locks up the reels with winning symbols, and re-spins the rest, for a chance at improving combinations.
The final big feature of Our Days is going to give you the free spins. These appear as a result of 3 to 5 scatters landing randomly on the reels, and up to 12 rounds are offered. The big pro here is that the low value symbols are removed from the reels, but then again so does the wild symbol.
Theme & Design
It’s a slot machine with a manga theme, featuring the Japanese style graphics that you might have seen in movies or series that are part of the genre. You get a mix of objects and characters on the reels, for its major symbols, along with a wild logo.
Our Days has good graphics for someone that enjoys Japanese manga, along with fun features, but it also has very low volatility and a small top jackpot.
