Synonymous with slam dunks, Boomshakalaka—also called boom shakalaka—is an exclamation that is associated with a surprising feat. Hereby, Boomshakalaka may be associated with the thrill resulting from a slot player winning the big wins, mega wins, and amazing jackpots. One of the Boomshakalaka symbols requires three, four, five, or six matching symbols; the other nine symbols require three, four, or five winning combinations.
Boomshakalaka Game Characteristics
Boomshakalaka has a 5X3 grid, up to 15 free games, 25 fixed pay lines, ten symbols, and four jackpots. There are three special symbols and seven ordinary symbols.

The four high-paying ordinary symbols are: a bejeweled lion wearing a blue fedora hat on a purple background; a lioness in a blue tank top on a blue background; a sexy female domestic cat in a pink tank top and cap; and a bejeweled male domestic cat with folded arms, wearing eyeglasses, a blue cap and a red scarf—on a green background.
The three low-paying ordinary symbols are: a fish skeleton on a golden plate; a purple “VIP” name tag with a paw print; and an ornamented golden yellow ball of wool.
