Bollywood Story™ slot brings you all greatness of Bollywood
Hollywood just can’t be beaten when it comes to film budget and actors salaries, but Bollywood shouldn’t be underestimated. The remarkable Indian film industry has won in popularity in the past years, in India, but also in the rest of the world. No wonder NetEnt decided to bring a typical Bollywood story to the reels, now available at all NetEnt Casino’s thanks to today’s launch of the Bollywood Story™ slot.
How does a typical Bollywood film look like
Bollywood is an interesting film industry and the films involved have many differences compared to the films we all know from Hollywood. The biggest differences can be found in the story told in a Bollywood film as 90% of the films bring the exact same storyline. Many of the films involve the simple storyline of a young poor man who falls in love with a woman from a rich aristocratic family. It is thanks to the caste system in India that the two lovebirds have to fight against all odds to get married.
Before you can enjoy a happy ending (which is how most of the films will end), you’ll be offered a lot of dancing, fighting, and crying! And yes, I know what you must think of it now. That such a storyline used over and over again must become boring at one point, but considering the fact that the industry is still winning in popularity, this doesn’t seem to be the case. The fact is that “a love conquering it all type of story” is selling cinema tickets so why change what can be called a success formula, right?
Another big difference compared to the Hollywood films, is that Bollywood films are explosively colourful due to the over-the-top costumes. Actrices are often dressed in traditional saris which are combined with heavy jewellery and large amounts of makeup. Indians in general love colour and vibrancy in their lives and this is certainly visible in the Bollywood films.
Bollywood films are often three to four hours long while standard Hollywood films are between 1,5 and 2 hours. Since a “Boy meets Girl” story can’t fill a film of 4 hours, you can expect a lot of music and dancing as well and some of the dances involve over 100 choreographed dancers.
The Bollywood Story™ slot
When you decide to play this new Bollywood-themed video slot at one of the many NetEnt Casinos this game is now available at, you can expect some of the typical Bollywood characteristics.
I don’t think it’s a surprise that the video slot is bringing the typical Boy meet Girl story to the reels. The Bollywood Story™ slot is telling the tale of two loving hearts who want to get married. But they face hardships, as they belong to different social classes. The girl’s parents stand in their way. They will never let their daughter marry a poor man. Does this end up in a happy ending or will this Bollywood story be one of the few without a happy ending?
If you’re familiar with the NetEnt slots, you might recognise the gameplay used for the Bollywood Story™. It’s the combination of the Floating Wilds and a Free Spins feature that was used in another game before. This game was inspired by fireflies, a completely different theme than Bollywood, but in the end, the two games will be the same.
This time, however, you’ll find two lovebirds on the reels in the company of two angry parents. The basic stay the same, though, as the Floating Wilds will appear frequently during each spin, no matter if the main game or during Free Spins.
Three Scatters will activate 10 Free Spins, while 20 Free Spins will be awarded when four Scatters show themselves on the reels. The amazing number of 30 Free Spins will be activated when the maximum amount of five Scatters appear.
