Bollywood Story Slot
Bollywood Story is a 5-reel, fixed 9-pay line online slot created by NetEnt exclusively for ComeOn! Casino. It's based a traditional Indian movie – if you didn't know, 'Bollywood' is derived from the combination of 'Hollywood' and 'Bombay' – which was the previous name of the Indian capital, Mumbai. Bollywood is actually more productive than Hollywood, producing double the amount of films, and selling around one million tickets more annually.
Bollywood films typically have a romantic theme. Basically, boy meets girl, girl's father doesn't like boy, boy does tons of stuff to win girl, and everyone sings and dances a lot. The first Bollywood film was made in 1913 – a silent movie called 'Raja Harishchandra'. The first Bollywood film with sound came in 1931, and was called 'Alam Ara'.
The theme of this slot seems perfectly Bollywood-esque. There's a handsome man, a sultry babe, and a pair of parents who don't seem too happy about life in general. The images that are used do seem more Disney than Bollywood, though. They are joined on the reels by playing card symbols ten to ace. There are only nine lines, and they are fixed. You can select your coin size from 0.01 to 1,00, and the number of coins you wish to gamble with each spin from one to ten. When you're ready to make a song and dance of things, hit the spin button.
Payout & bonus rounds
Payouts commence with three times your bet-per-spin for any three identical playing card symbols. The jackpot is won by landing five 'Bollywood Story' logos on a pay line. That wins you 1,000x your wager.
A number of flowered frames float around the screen during each spin. There's a minimum of two, and a maximum of four. When the reels settle, the symbols that finish beneath the frames turn into wilds. The wilds substitute for all other symbols aside from the scatter symbols.
A collection of blue gems acts as the free spins scatter symbol. You need three or more scatters to trigger the free spins feature. You win ten for three, twenty for four and thirty for five. During bonus spins the number of floating wilds rises to between three and six. Free spins can be re-triggered.
That's as far as it goes for Bollywood Story. It's a very fast-paced game, but more features could have been included. The soundtrack at least sounds authentic – after a few spins you'll probably feel like going for a curry! If you're a fan of Bollywood movies, then you're likely to approve of this exclusive, ComeOn! Casino NetEnt-produced slot.
