Bollywood Story Touch® (EOL)
This game is End of Life but feel free to read about it here.
A total of three new mobile games were launched in June 2018, bringing three different themes to the mobile NetEnt Casinos. First, NetEnt launched a magical-themed game with Witchcraft Academy Touch®. Then Bollywood came into the picture and players got treated a typical Bollywood Story with Bollywood Touch®. Followed by Jumanji Touch®, and I would like to emphasise this mobile slot game as it brings one of the most famous board games to the reels.
Of course, we appreciate all NetEnt Games, but some are just slightly more appreciated than the other games and Jumanji Touch® is definitely one of them. As a branded mobile slot game, this game brought you the best of NetEnt’s innovations with a few of the film’s adventures turned into slot features while the famous board game has been used for a spectacular bonus game.
It’s games like Jumanji Touch® that make my video slot heart beat just a bit faster, but of course, every new NetEnt slot is welcome, including Bollywood Story Touch® which was the second mobile casino slot launched in June 2018. This time no magic nor an adventurous board game, but a typical Bollywood story. You get a chance to become familiar with one of the largest film industries as Bollywood is incredibly popular among the Indian population.
What is Bollywood?
Bollywood refers to the Indian Hindi-language film industry based in Mumbai. Bollywood is basically Hollywood, but this time located in Mumbai. Mumbai used to be Bombay, hence it’s Bollywood and not Mollywood.
Just like Hollywood, Mumbai’s film industry is fascinating, but there’s a lot of differences between the films involved. We all know the Hollywood films which are often between 1,5 and 2 hours long. There’s action films, romantic comedies, comedies, thrillers, horror, crime films, drama, adventure, music, science fiction, fantasy, family movies and children movies. Yep, that’s Hollywood, but that’s certainly not Bollywood.
In what aspects is Bollywood different than Hollywood
Bollywood is different and it starts with the majority of the films being longer than 3 hours. That’s just a start as most of the films involve music, dance and singing with nearly all the songs being lip-synced as the actual actors can’t sing. The funny thing is, they don’t even try to hide this fact and it seems totally accepted by the Bollywood film fans.
If it comes to the above list of categories, don’t expect anything like that in Bollywood as the majority of the films involves one story: the Bollywood Story. Don’t get me wrong, Bollywood does bring action, drama, romance, and comedy….but it’s just available all-in-one film. It’s for this reason that 90% of the Bollywood films are entirely the same.
So what’s going on a typical Hollywood film? Well, most of the time there’s a boy and a girl, and they fall in love. How cute, right? Yes, that’s what we would believe, but in India, it isn’t that simple as many lovers are from different casts leading to a fresh new romance ending up in misery as soon as their family finds out.
In Bollywood Story Touch® you’ll find such a love story, telling the story of two loving hearts who want to get married but find her parents standing in their way. Is their love stronger than India’s caste system and will their love survive the hardships they’re facing?
Bollywood Story Touch® features
While Bollywood Story Touch® brings an original theme to the reels, the video slot isn’t that original any more. The reason why is that Lights Touch® offers the exact same gameplay including Floating Wilds and Free Spins feature.
In Lights Touch® fireflies are in control, but this time it’s two Indian lovers. In Bollywood Touch® you’ll be treated a love story while the gameplay of the two games is exactly the same. Which isn’t a big deal if you ask me as the Floating Wilds are a nice slot innovation.
Floating Wilds are fun and way more attractive than a regular Wild. Floating Wilds will appear frequently during every single spin in the main game and in Free Spins these same Floating Wilds land on top of regular symbols, turning them into Wilds. When enjoying Bollywood during the main game, you can expect 2 to 4 Floating Wilds on the reels with each spin while these numbers will increase during Free Spins when 3 to 6 Floating Wilds can be found on the reels.
As mentioned before, 3 to 6 Floating Wilds will appear randomly with each spin during Free Spins. Activate the Free Spins feature with 3 or more Scatters on the reels during the main game. You either activate 10 Free Spins, 20 Free Spins or even 30 Free Spins.
