Bollywood movies are very popular in their native India, and have begun gaining popularity around the globe as those with ties in the country move to new areas for work. The films in the genre definitely have their own look and feel to them, and NetEnt is capitalising on this with their Bollywood Story slot. The game has a neat, cartoonish look to it, and while it is a bit simplistic, it certainly has its own charm.
Bollywood Story is a 5 reel, 9 payline video slot that's set in a home in India, as the game seems to revolve around a family drama movie that you see everywhere. The game's artwork is very well drawn, and almost reminds me of something you'd see in theatres from a major 1990's film like Aladdin. The game's symbols include standard slot icons (10, Jack, Queen, King, Ace) as well as a mother, father, young man, beautiful woman, and a game title icon, which is the high paying symbol.
Features in the game include wild symbols (wild written on a symbols surrounded by flowers), scatter symbols, and free spins. Players that get three scatters get 10 free spins. Four scatters get 20 free spins, and five scatters get 30 free spins. During this round, you can find between three and six floating wilds on each spin, giving you the chance to win big. The layout of the game along with the feature set give players a theoretical return to player (RTP) percentageof 96.1%, which is more or less considered average for an online slot being released these days.
I will say that I've put some time into Bollywood Story, and while it's not my favourite slot of all time, the game does have charm that makes it something you can put some time into. The slot has an appropriate Bollywood soundtrack attached to it, and if you're a fan of the genre it will put a large smile on your face. Scoring a large win has an awesome backdrop full of dancing and music, and the ability to take home a max win of 90,000 credits will likely get you moving like a Bollywood dancer as well. The game handles well on both desktop and mobile devices and is certainly something I can see you having a lot of fun with while you sit on the train on your commute.
