Blending hip-hop music with trendy cats which are used as its characters, Boom Shakalaka is one of the Booming Games releases and a pretty fun one as well. They’ve designed a slot here, which incorporates several fixed jackpots and some features which you expect to find from most games.
You’re going to have 25 lines that you can play on, and of course there will be 5 reels which you can spin. The second-best rewards are going to come from the Catpots, up to $100,000 being paid by them, while individual win lines can add up and pay as much as $500,000 in one round. A short list of features can be mentioned, using a wild, scatters and free spins to give you some variety.
Betting and Prizes
Given the 25 fixed lines which are in play, the game asks that you cover it with wagers which can’t be lower than $0.25. At the highest point, these bets can have a value of $500, which would mean that for each active line you can have $20 wagered.
The game’s rewards look impressive, but that’s mostly thanks to the amount that’s used in the bet. They only reach 1,000x the stake, or $500,000, if you fill up all positions with wilds.
Another type of jackpot that you can trigger is the one they call Catpot. It’s going to need 3 to 6 of the Catpot symbols in view, and the game will deliver the jackpot which corresponds to it, paying anywhere from 20x to 200x the stake.
Boom Shakalaka Slot Features
One of several simple features which you’re going to have in the game is the Catpot scatter. It’s not going to bring you a progressive jackpot, even though its values are displayed at the top, but it’s still a way to get paid, so I can’t complain. The symbol here is getting a Catpot logo, against a diamond.
Second, expect to also find the usual Wild symbol in the game. Using once again a logo, this time against leopard print, this symbol will be available for you to use on all the game’s reels. You may have it as a substitute, and this is its role most of the time, but it can also create winning combinations next to other wilds, and they pay as much as 1,000x at that point. None of the scatters benefit from the wild’s presence on the reels.
The second scatter gets the logo of the game, and it’s your trigger for the free spins feature. You will need a minimum of three Boom Shakalaka logos in view, in order to get into this feature. 5, 10 or 15 free spins are triggered, based on the number of symbols which have contributed.
Theme & Design
It looks like a hip-hop inspired design, though it uses various cats for main characters. Some of these are domesticated cats, others are wild, but they’re all dressed as hip-hop artists. VIP passes, various logos, balls of strings and fish skeleton pendants can be found among the other symbols which are available inside. The graphics are pretty good, cartoon-style and enjoyable.
Boom Shakalaka is one of the Booming Games slots that I’d consider slightly average. With its 1,000x top payouts and entirely common features, it’s not their most exciting release so far, though it’s not necessarily a bad game either.
