Every couple of weeks Elaine, High 5 Blog’s customer-care correspondent, stops by to discuss ways to optimize your High 5 Casino and/or Shake the Sky experience.

Ho, ho, ho everyone! I hope you’re excited for the holidays. I’ve got some tips for those of you who want to ring in the New Year playing High 5 Casino! Today I’m going to tackle a few ways you can understand the payouts at H5C.

1. See the paylines by adjusting the lines you bet

If you’ve ever wondered what the paylines are for a given game, just adjust the number of lines that you’re playing and the paylines will automatically be laid over the reels. Go all the way down to one line, and then back up to the maximum lines, to see how the paylines are added.

2. Check out the paytables for feature information

Curious about how a feature works? Just click on the paytable — located underneath the MAX button — for details. Make sure your MAX bet is turned off before doing this, though — that way a stray click doesn’t end up costing you your bankroll!

3. Ask us questions

If you’re ever curious about how a game pays, reach out to us and ask at support@high5games.com. You can also leave a comment here if there’s something you’d like me to explain.

Ok, that’s it for me and payouts this week. I hope you guys have a wonderful holiday, and I can’t wait to answer more of your questions next year! Until then, thanks for reading, good luck, and keep spinning!

Game Spotlights: Cat Gangster and Fortune Cat Fever Debut at H5C

H5C_Gangster_Cat_Fortune_Cat_Unlocked__1200x1200_banner2

Attention all cat lovers! It’s a very feline week at High 5 Casino. Two new cat-themed titles have released unlocked! Think of these games as an early holiday gift from us – a couple new ways to unwind when you’re done braving the crowds and shopping for presents.

Cat Gangster premieres this week as the 118th game at High 5 Casino. It’s often said that the battle between cops and criminals is a cat-and-mouse game, and in Cat Gangster that idiom comes to life! Come along on a wild, stylized ride to a big city where the animals don’t just talk – they drink, fight, and connive! Will the eponymous feline ne’er-do-well of this game continue to live large with his illicit funds and beautiful girlfriend, or will he get taken down by a rat cop or a rival gorilla thug? Play Cat Gangster today and find out! Cat Gangster features 576 ways to win and Bonus Select, which leads to criminally large wins.

Shake the Sky fan-favorite Fortune Cat Fever also launches unlocked at High 5 Casino. Fortune Cat Fever originally launched on Shake the Sky in May, and the game is now bringing its good luck to players at H5C! The fortune cat is a common auspicious symbol that makes a beckoning motion with its paw and is meant to bring good fortune to its owner. Fortune Cat Fever features Split Symbols for double the wins, and a free games bonus.

Bring home the bacon with Cat Gangster and Fortune Cat Fever at High 5 Casino!

Slot Fundamentals: ReSpin on Win

Slot_Fundamentals_ReSpin_on_WIN
Slot Fundamentals is a column we run occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with ReSpin on Win, a popular feature that can be found in some of our newer games.

High 5 Games has been creating the most innovative slot games around for going on two decades now. We want to give our players the best experience possible, which is why our game design team is always tinkering with new features to keep our latest releases fresh. One such feature that only recently saw the light of day is ReSpin on Win, which somehow manages to make winning combinations even more exciting. But how exactly does it work?

It’s pretty simple, actually. With ReSpin on Win, every wild or major line win awards a number of respins – meaning you get additional spins when you win. The rich get richer in these games, so to speak; every wild or major line win leads to free spins and (hopefully) even bigger jackpots. Look for ReSpin on Win in High 5 Casino games like Celtic Courage and Shake the Sky games like White Lion and Talon and Dove.

We hope you found that helpful, and that you score some huge wins on slots with ReSpin on Win! What’s the most respins you’ve ever been awarded in a game like this? Which slot fundamental would you like to see us explain in the future?

High 5 Fight Club

Today I’ll be offering my thoughts on two showdowns between four different High 5 Games slots. Take the polls below and let us know what you think!

H5C_GameVSGame_Liger_Hoot_1200x1200
Hoot Loot vs. Liger Loot

Who has more loot: the owl from Hoot Loot or the liger from Liger Loot?

Let’s be clear: both of these dudes are loaded. The owl from Hoot Loot was probably born with a silver spoon in his mouth. You can tell he’s been well off for a while by the way he dresses and his nonchalant air. He doesn’t even seem to be worried that his nest eggs are out in the open, where anyone can grab them – he’s got more dough somewhere or another. But he can’t compete with the liger from Liger Loot. Look at the maniacal hunger in his eyes. Amigo has cash, jewels, and gold literally overflowing from his cave. He probably overcame a rough background (single mother, learning disability, too much of a tiger for the lions and too much of a lion for the tigers) to found a tech startup, and is now worth billions.

EDGE: Liger Loot

H5C_GameVSGame_BigShow_vs_Jazz_
The Big Show vs. Jazz

Would you rather attend The Big Show or go to the club in Jazz?

There’s no question I’d rather head to the Jazz club than sit in the audience for a taping of The Big Show. There’s going to be a bunch of commercial breaks during The Big Show where you’ve got nothing better to do than twiddle your thumbs or perhaps talk to the people near you – gross! It would probably be a lot of hassle for not that much music. You get way more bang for your buck in a jazz club. Plus, it’s dark, you can drink, and you can look super cool on dates when you say you frequent jazz clubs. Just hope a follow-up question regarding jazz isn’t asked.

EDGE: Jazz

Game Spotlight: Sapphire Tiger

Sapphire_Tiger_wall_no_logos_post
The legend of the Sapphire Tigers proved irresistible, so you decided to seek them out. You’re not sure if you’ll find them, or if they even exist, but you set out into the jungle anyway. Days pass with no sign of the majestic animals, and you begin to lose hope. Then, just as you are about to give up, you spot them lurking in the distance – the most beautiful animals you’ve ever seen…

Sapphire Tiger debuts today as the 117th premium slot at High 5 Casino! This game has more than just stellar art design: 576 ways to win, Semi-Stacked Majors, and Right-to-Left Pays help you snag glorious wins!

Hey High 5-ers! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I sure did — I’m still living off leftovers. This week I want to talk about three reasons why you should play video poker at High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky, if you don’t already.

1. Another four-hour bonus

You can collect a four-hour bonus in video poker, just like with our slots. Unlike our slots, though, you actually have to open a video poker game before you can collect a four-hour bonus for it. So when you start playing those video poker games, you start collecting extra bonuses!

2. Check out themes for your favorite slots

Another great thing about video poker is that you can unlock themes in the style of some of your favorite slots. Love Rum City? Check out our Rum City theme! Can’t get enough Triple Raven? Select our new Triple Raven theme!

3. Even more keyboard shortcuts

Video poker has never been easier than it is on High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky, which have a number of awesome keyboard shortcuts designed to save you time and improve your gameplay. You can use the space bar to deal, the arrow keys to adjust your bet, and the number keys to hold cards.

There are many more reasons to check out video poker, but I hope these three are enough for you to give it a try, if you haven’t already. Why do you guys like to play video poker? Is there anything you’d like me to cover next time? Let me know! Until then, good luck, and happy playing!

Game Spotlights: Magic Orchid and Bollywood Bride Debut at H5C

H5C_Magic_Orchid_Bollywood_Unlocked__1200x1200
With only two days until Thanksgiving, we here at High 5 Games are feeling especially thankful for all the High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky Casino players out there. With that in mind, we’re unlocking TWO new premium games today for everyone at H5C!

Land-based favorite Magic Orchid launches unlocked as the 115th slot at High 5 Casino. Explore a tropical oasis brimming with luscious greenery, lavish waterfalls, and beautiful inhabitants. In the Orchid Kingdom you can have it all, including eternal beauty and youth. Harness the power of the sacred flower to unleash unfathomable possibilities. Stacked Wilds and Free Games with Locking Wilds lead to beautiful jackpots!

STS fan favorite Bollywood Bride premieres unlocked as the 116th top-notch title at High 5 Casino. It’s the wedding of the year, and you’re invited! Leave behind the humdrum of everyday life, and let the colors, sounds, and movements of eclectic India ignite your senses. The bride’s family has spared no expense. Delicious food, fine drinks, beautiful clothes, wonderful music – this party has it all. All you have to do is show up and have a good time. Super Stacks mean big and beautiful wins are always just around the corner, but the night really heats up when players are taken to Bollywood Bride’s bonus round. Even the disapproving mother from the base game starts to loosen up and have a little fun in the free games. The Collection Bonus lets players collect the wedding presents that appear on the reels in the bonus. If you collect all the gifts, you’ll be awarded extra free games!

What do you think of Magic Orchid and Bollywood Bride? What type of games would you like to see H5G make in the future?

Thanksgiving at High 5 Casino

h5c_thanksgiving_guests_1200_1200
Ladies and gentlemen, we are fast approaching the greatest holiday that the United States has to offer: Thanksgiving. Turkey Day appeals to the lazy glutton in everyone. Three days from now we’ll all be eating and drinking too much and maybe remembering to give thanks as football drones on in the background. Hopefully you’re all seated next to the cool cousin this year, not the creepy uncle with painfully bad jokes that you laugh at anyway because you sort of have to. The only day that’s better than Thanksgiving is the day after Thanksgiving – sandwiches piled high with leftover turkey and whatever else makes it through the night somehow taste even better than the meal proper. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we got to thinking about which High 5 Casino characters you would, and would not, want to celebrate with:

Inviting the futuristic family from Retropolis is a no-brainer. Be sure to extend an invite to the family robot, who’ll take care of all the post-meal cleaning for you. And try to sit next to Mom or Dad during the meal itself; you may be able to pick up some very valuable stock tips.

The explorer who discovered the Fountain of Youth definitely has some great stories. More importantly, he’s got that magical elixir, so when he asks what to bring tell him to share the good stuff. Slip some of that youth juice in Grandma’s wine glass and prepare to be amazed!

Jazz

Because beautiful background music makes everything better. Imagine how impressed your in-laws will be!

I’d steer clear from inviting this doc over for Thanksgiving. He’d probably complain about how unhealthy everything is, while totally ignoring the fact that everything is also delicious. Plus, he seems like the type of dude who would hit on your wife, or try to convince your mother she needs plastic surgery.

The Lovely Outlaws

Sure, they’re beautiful, but don’t forget that they’re also very dangerous! They’d probably be great company until they had too much to drink, at which point they’d repay your hospitality by robbing you and burning your saloon house to the ground.

We hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Let us know which High 5 Casino characters you would and would not want to have over in the comments below.

High 5 Fight Club

Today I’ll be offering my thoughts on two showdowns between four different High 5 Games slots. Take the polls below and let us know what you think!

TOH_vs_MA
Tales of Hercules vs. The Mighty Atlas

Who’d win in a fight between Hercules and The Mighty Atlas?

Atlas taking on the ancient hero Hercules (or Heracles, as he’d be known to the Titan) would make for an epic showdown. Luckily, these two actually squared off in Greek mythology, so we can use that to help us figure out who’d have the upper hand. Basically, Hercules casually held the heavens up while Atlas went to grab some apples for him from his daughters’ dragon-guarded garden that Hercules needed. Upon his return, Atlas tried to just ditch the heavens on Hercules, but good old Herc was able to trick him into taking them back upon his shoulders. So, clearly, Hercules would be able to outwit and ultimately defeat poor old Atlas if they ever met again.

EDGE: Tales of Hercules

Cyrano_&_A_Night_of_Mystery
Cyrano vs. A Night of Mystery

Who has a sweeter mustache: Cyrano or the detective from A Night of Mystery?

The mustache that the detective from A Night of Mystery is rocking is nothing to laugh at, but it’s nothing to write home about either. It’s a utilitarian ‘stache, one well suited for keeping his upper lip warm as he’s out fighting crime. Maybe even a background ‘stache, like you see in the graphic above, one that looks cooler through his ubiquitous magnifying glass. Cyrano’s mustache, on the other hand, is flamboyant, spectacular. Dude is clearly committed to an all-world flavor saver – it extends like four inches past his mouth on either side so he might even be using gel, who knows. Regardless of the specifics, Cyrano and his crumb catcher would dominate just about any other ‘stache out there in this writer’s humble opinion.

EDGE: Cyrano
