Bollywood is the name given to the film industry in India. It obviously derives from Hollywood. The movies have typical song and dance routines that are becoming popular worldwide. A sign of the growing popularity is that Bollywood has made its entry in the video slots arena. NetEnt has released a video slot titled Bollywood Story. It will be found at NetEnt powered online casinos like Royal Vegas. Another reason for reviewing this slot game now is that India celebrates its Republic Day on January 26.

In Bollywood movies most songs are set either in exotic locales or royal surroundings. In Bollywood Story, the reels are set in a beautiful garden within a palace courtyard. The background soundtrack consists of an Indian raga. The ornate Indian artwork adds realism to the game play. The slot machine has the standard structure of 5 reels and 3 rows with 9 fixed paylines. The game logo awards the highest line payout of 1000 coins for a combination of 5 symbols. At first this seems low for a 9-paylines slot game, but there are bonus features that compensate. The other high paying symbols are stereotype characters from Indian movies. In this slot game the leading lady is presented as a coy bride and the leading man as a dashing bridegroom. The villain who usually comes in the path of true love has been shown as a sinister character with a handlebar moustache. The girls playing the subordinate roles in Bollywood movies are usually not as pretty as the heroine and NetEnt has caught this nuance. The low paying symbols are the usual playing card icons. Big wins are depicted against a frieze of classical Indian dancers in the background.

There is no designated wild symbol. However, there is a Floating Wilds feature that creates wild symbols on the reels. A border with flowers is the floating wild. From two to four such borders appear randomly on different positions in the reels. These positions become wild symbols if they can assist in making winning combinations. A set of blue gems is the scatter symbol. Three or more scatter symbols anywhere on the reels trigger the free spins feature. The number of free spins depends on the number of scatter symbols. Three scatters trigger 10 free spins, four scatters trigger 20 free spins and five scatters trigger 30 free spins. In this feature the number of floating wilds increases to between 3 and 6 in every free spin.
