Bollywood Story Slot Machine
The Bollywood Story slot machine by Netent pays homage to the wonderful world of Bollywood cinematography. It comes complete with stylish artwork, a great Eastern soundtrack, and an incredibly juicy free spin mode.
The game won’t be to everyone’s taste (there’s a distinct lack of explosions that might put some people off). It’s also lacking a true second screen bonus. This is a shame given that Bollywood cinema is so full of colour and drama. We’re sure Netent could have come up with something relevant to take the action away from the reels!

Bollywood Story Review
|Our Rating:||3 / 5|
- Authentic music and art style give this slot a real (albeit cartoony) feel of a classic Bollywood movie.
- We love games that award large numbers of free spins and Bollywood Story is one such slot. Hitting 30 free games as good as guarantees you some juicy prizes!
- Not a huge amount of variety in the game features. This one is more about hitting the top jackpots and not so much about slowly increasing wins through various side games.
- Fans of action-packed slots might find the gameplay on this one a little lacking. It’s one that will likely divide opinion.
- Lack of second screen side game feels like a bit of a missed opportunity. With so much strong imagery associated with Bollywood, we’re sure a greater effort could have been made to develop the characters featured in the game in a secondary bonus stage.
The largest pay outs on the Bollywood Story slot machine are all awarded for matching five-of-a-kind of the highest value symbols down a single win line. Each of these have been inspired by a classic Indian movie with two young (presumably) lovers and a pair of less-than-impressed parents. We’ve listed the prizes for hitting five of the same symbols down one of the nine available win lines below:
- Game logo = 1,000x the line bet.
- Girl = 750x the line bet.
- Young man = 500x the line bet.
- Older man = 400x the line bet.
- Older woman = 300x the line bet.
The biggest possible payout on Bollywood Story is 90,000 coins – not too shabby at all.
During every spin of the main game and in the Free Spins mode, Floating “Wilds” will appear and land on top of regular symbols. This turns them into “Wild” symbols.
During the main game, between two and four Floating “Wilds” will appear on every spin.
“Wild” symbols substitute for all other symbols except the “Scatters”.
Landing three or more “Scatter” symbols anywhere on the reels during the main game or in Free Spins will activate Free Spins. The number of “Scatters” landed will determine the number of free spins awarded. We’ve listed them below:
- Three “Scatters” = 10 Free Spins.
- Four “Scatters” = 20 Free Spins.
- Five “Scatters” = 30 Free Spins.
Players should note that additional free spins can be retriggered during this special feature.
In addition to the game’s higher value symbols, Bollywood Story also has some that do not award such grandiose prizes. As is common on many slot machines, these lower value symbols have been taken from the upper end of a standard deck of playing cards (A, K, Q, J, 10). Like their more valuable counterparts, we’ve listed the prizes for hitting five-of-a-kind of each below:
- Ace = 100x the line bet.
- King = 75x the line bet.
- Queen = 50x the line bet.
- Jack = 40x the line bet.
- Ten = 30x the line bet.
Since the number of win lines is fixed at 9, players are only able to adjust the number of coins bet on each line and the value of each one. They can opt for any number between one and ten for the number bet per line and a range of values between 1p and £1.
This means with all values set to their minimum, the lowest possible bet per spin is just 9p. Meanwhile, with everything maxed out, the largest possible wager per turn is £90. With such an upper betting limit, the Bollywood Story slot machine will likely satisfy all but those wanting to splash the most cash.
The Bollywood Story will certainly delight all those with a penchant for Indian film. It might even keep those who are fans of a less intense slot machine experience than some of the more action-packed slots around entertained. It features some reasonably high payments and a potentially lucrative free spins mode too.
However, the game still feels like it’s missing something. With so much colour and spectacle associated with the Bollywood film industry, it seems like a missed opportunity to not include a true second screen bonus in which we learn a bit more about the characters and their relationship to one another. Oh, and some more chances to win big!
