The appeal of Bollywood is now felt all over the planet and in various different industries. From clothes with Bollywood images to mugs, home décor, and video games, people everywhere want to feel that they have a part of the Indian film industry in their lives. The latest Toofaan merchandise is an example of this trend.
This now stretches to online casinos too, as slots games based on Bollywood movies have started to become increasingly popular. There are still relatively few of them to choose from but if we look at how other themed slots have gained popularity, it may give us an idea of what the future holds in store for Bollywood slots.
The Bollywood Party Slot from Sigma
This is a colorful game this is based on the fun atmosphere we are used to seeing in the party and dancing scenes in Bollywood movies. It was developed by Sigma and you will mainly find it in casinos that are aimed at the Indian gaming market.
It is relatively low volatility, meaning that you should expect to see relatively regular wins, although they may be for modest prizes most of the time. The best winning combination of symbols awards 250x your bet, which is awarded when you get five images of the male character with the moustache on a pay line.
There are five movie characters in total in this game, and the most exciting moments come when they arrive to the Dance Streak bonus. This is triggered randomly and involves the cast of the movie dancing between positions to try and get you a new winning line.
Bollywood Night Slot from Logitech
This slot from Logitech perhaps looks a bit simpler than the Bollywood Party effort, but it features a simple array of movie characters among its main symbols. The designers have opted for a simple look that has velvet curtains and gold writing adding a touch of class.
The characters are nicely represented and they appear to show them taking part in a variety of different types of Bollywood movies, adding a nice touch of diversity. The wild can come stacked and also gets involved in a wild event where up to a couple of reels turn wild for a guaranteed win.
A scatter symbol leads you into free spins rounds where a limit of 25 bonus games can be played. The top-paying symbol is the warrior who can give you as much as 60 times your stakes when he appears in five positions on a pay line.
Other Themes Games Worth Exploring
It is likely that more Bollywood slots are added in the future, as more developers realize the potential of this theme. For the moment, there are plenty of other options to look into. For example, the Egyptian theme is seen on popular slots like Cleopatra Gold and Sphinx Wild High Limit.
If you like movies from Hollywood, you can try spinning the reels on themed slots like Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle from NetEnt, based on the original Jumanji movie. This game is played over five reels and features wild animals such as crocodiles and lions among its symbols. Features like Monsoon Wilds, Sticky Vines, and Monkey Mayhem add to the gameplay while keeping neatly to the movie’s theme.
The ever-popular wheel of fortune-style game seen on TV is also easy to find, with a series of spins often awarded as a bonus round on slots. You can find Wheel of Fortune slots such as the Megaways and the Hawaiian Getaway versions, where the basic slots game is enjoyable but the wheel-spinning section is where the biggest prizes are available.
A TV character that pops up on a slot is chef Gordon Ramsay, with the game from NetEnt based on his Hello’s Kitchen series. It is a five-reel slot that features the chance for free spins and a bonus feature where you can land a random prize of a nice multiplier.
Add in TV and movie-themed slots like Narcos and Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure to see that the online casino industry is turning increasingly to our favorite types of entertainment to find themes that we enjoy. Keep an eye out for new Bollywood releases and anything else that you like the look of.
