Where to play?
Bollywood Story is a low to medium variance video slot brought to you by Net Entertainment. It has 9 paylines, 5 reels and pays a top jackpot (non-progressive) of 90,000 coins on a single spin.
As far as the theme goes it’s about a poor Indian boy who meets the girl of his dreams, there’s a slight problem though…the girl’s family disapproves of their union because he is poor. This prompts the girl to steal a valuable gem from her affluent parents which she gives to the boy so that he can give her the marriage she’s been dreaming of all her life.
The cartoon like visuals are good but it’s the in-play bonus rounds such as floating wilds and a re-triggerable free spins feature (awards up to 60 free spins with 6 wilds) that saves the day.
Symbols on the reels remain true to theme, you’ll see the floating wild encased in flowers, the gem scatter, the Bollywood Story logo, the angry father and mother in law, the beautiful bride, groom and low value cards from 10 to Ace. The symbol that pays the top cash prize is the Bollywood Story logo, when 5 of the pop up on the reels at the maximum bet of £90 per spin, you’ll pocket 1,000 coins.
The average return to player percentage (RTP) of Bollywood Story is 96.1% or an edge to the house of 3.1%.
The smallest bet per spin is £0.9 up to £90 per spin, the game is playable on mobile devices and PC desktops. Free play is available too, £4,008.20 in free credits is awarded. It’s advantageous to play the slots in the free mode first because it gives you an idea about the payouts at the different coin levels and how many spins it will take you to trigger the free spins feature. If your bankroll is £200 don’t bet more than £8 per spin unless you’re really taking a chance. Always keep your average bet per spin within the ambit of your bankroll.
The Floating Wild appears during the main game when it lands on a symbol it is transformed into a wild – 2 to 4 Floating Wilds appear on each spin.
Bollywood Story Free Spins
The main attraction is the free spins feature that is triggered by 3, 4 or 5 blue gem scatters. The amount of free spins you’ll get are proportionate to the scatters:
- 3x scatters awards 10 free spins
- 4x scatters awards 20 free spins
- 5x scatters awards 30 free spins
The free spins feature can be re-triggered if another 3 or more scatters appear whilst the feature is active, a total of 60 free spins can be won.
The good news is that the free spins feature is fitted with Floating Wilds, 3 to 6 Floating Wilds can randomly appear on each free spin, obviously this is where the BIG WINS lurk (1,000x your stake on one free spin).
Bollywood Story tries to impress unfortunately in our books it’s a lightweight, we don’t want to sound condescending but NetEnt could have done better.
At an average bet of £0.90 per spin you can win a 1,000x your stake, it won’t make you rich but you might end up making a dance move or two. The Floating Wilds feature blows hot and cold as well.
