Game Spotlight: Triple Raven

TripleRaven_Unlocked_AppLogos_1200x1200
There’s no better way to get a jump start on your Halloween weekend than by playing Triple Raven, which is now UNLOCKED for all players at High 5 Casino and also UNLOCKED for all players as a video poker theme! The 111th slot at H5C is sure to get you in the right mood for all types of spooky festivities, and/or for gorging yourself on candy. I, for one, will be dressing up as a Sudoku puzzle on Friday, and know I’ll be spending the early evening spinning Triple Raven to get in the right mood.

Experience High 5 Games’ take on Edgar Allen Poe’s classic poem “The Raven” in Triple Raven! Wonderful art design and stirring music create an intense and supernatural atmosphere as the protagonist of the famous work interacts with a mysterious raven who only says, ‘Nevermore.’ Unlike the despondent narrator, you’ll have hope for big wins on this dreary December night thanks to 720 ways to win, Triple Symbols, and the Nevermore Bonus!

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.

Hey everyone! Are you ready to Fall back this weekend? For those of you who want to spend your extra hour on Sunday playing some H5C or STS, I’ve got some tips to speed up loading and avoid crashes on every platform.

1. Faster loading on a computer

High 5 Casino or Shake the Sky work best when you close all other programs and browser windows on your computer. You should also want to make sure that you only have one tab open at a time. We also recommend that you clear your browser’s cache regularly. For instructions on how to do that, you can consult this link.

2. Smoother play on iOS

For the smoothest play on H5C for iOS and STS for iOS, we recommend that you stay logged into a wireless network. We also suggest that you close all other open apps – to maximize the amount of available memory on your phone – by double-tapping the home button and then swiping the app screens up. You should also make sure that you’re playing the most recent build of our app, as it has the latest bug fixes and games. You can do this by going to the Updates tab in the App Store.

3. Lightning loading on Android

Like with iOS, we suggest that you stay logged into a wireless network while playing High 5 Casino for Android and Shake the Sky Casino for Android. We also recommend that you regularly clear your apps cached data (for specific instructions, click here). You should also close all other open programs (for specific instructions, refer to this link), and check regularly for app updates (you can click here for more specific instructions).

I hope these instructions help speed up your gameplay! They may also help your devices run faster in general, and save your battery life. Have a wonderful weekend, and happy spinning!

Behind the Scenes at High 5: Frisky Friday by Foxy Dynamite

Check out the third edition of ‘Behind the Scenes at High 5,’ our new video series!

When you’ve got wicked characters like Black Widow and Dangerous Beauty creeping around the High 5 Games office, you definitely need someone like Foxy Dynamite around to keep everyone safe. It’s pretty obvious why Foxy is everyone’s favorite crime fighter – who else could catch crooks while looking that fabulous? Get an inside look at a typical Friday at H5G:

I guess Foxy goes overboard with the whole security thing sometimes, but at least her heart’s in the right place. She should definitely consider leaning back a bit in her chair in the next meeting, though. Meanwhile, Gypsy should probably be a little more insightful in the next meeting, considering she has a crystal ball and the ability to see into the future. That’s probably slightly useful in a business setting, right?

Stay tuned, because the next edition of ‘Behind the Scenes at High 5’ will debut at High 5 Blog in the near future!

In the meantime, check out more High 5 Games video content on YouTube, and play High 5 Casino on Facebook, iOS, and Android.

High 5 Fight Club: Halloween Edition

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!

LO_VS_DR
The Lovely Outlaws vs. Daughters of the Regiment

Who would make better zombie hunters: The Lovely Outlaws or the Daughters of the Regiment?

In the spirit of Halloween, which is only a week away, we’ll go through some zombie-related questions today. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m sure either one of these groups of ladies would make excellent zombie hunters. After all, the Daughters of the Regiment fought for America during the country’s infancy, and The Lovely Outlaws were some of the most dangerous criminals in the Wild West. Either group would do in a pinch if you woke up one day, looked outside your window, and realized the end of the world had begun. But if I had the luxury of choice, I’d go with The Lovely Outlaws, who seem meaner, and have better weapons. It’s a lot easier to take down a zombie from range than it is from up close, I’d imagine.

EDGE: The Lovely Outlaws

STS_Bollywood-Bride-&-Who's-My-Candy-Prince-
Bollywood Bride vs. Who’s My Candy Prince?

Who would make more dangerous zombies: the characters from Bollywood Bride or those from Who’s My Candy Prince?

I can’t imagine the characters from Who’s My Candy Prince? ever getting that mad or being that dangerous, even if they were zombies. The undead versions of these happy, dessert-loving folks would probably not find human flesh that appealing compared to sweets, so they’d end up harmlessly shuffling around candy stores. On the other hand, imagine how upset the Bollywood Bride and her mother would be if they were dragged into the zombie apocalypse on what was supposed to be a day of celebration. The two of them would go all-out on the hunt for brains after that, making them way more dangerous.

EDGE: Bollywood Bride

Game Spotlight: The Haunted Horseman

Haunted-Horseman_Unlocked_AppLogos_1200x1200
Just in time for Halloween, The Haunted Horseman is now UNLOCKED for all players at High 5 Casino!

Strange things have been happening in Sleepy Hollow. Random citizens of this small town have been disappearing, and those brave enough to venture out at night report seeing a strange apparition: a headless man atop a horse. You have been called here to stop the crimes and solve the mystery. Do you have what it takes to defeat The Haunted Horseman?

The Haunted Horseman has awesome gameplay to go along with its scary art design and exciting music. Tumbling Reels and Mystery Bucks help you score big in Sleepy Hollow, even if you’re too spooked to battle The Haunted Horseman (I certainly would be).

Game Preview: Happy Two-Gether

STS_HappyTwo-gether_1200x1200
Today’s post comes from High 5 Blog correspondent Ali.

This week’s Shake the Sky Casino release is Happy Two-Gether! This is the 44th title to release on STS and features Tumbling Reels and Split Symbols with Tumble Double.

Happy Two-Gether reminds us that life is simply better with a partner! Just think of all the things you can’t do on your own – three-legged races, leap frog, synchronized swimming, riding a bicycle built for two, eating a steak for two on a double date… you get the idea. When you have someone to share your experiences with, it just makes them that much more special. Take a trip to a fun-filled forest where everyone’s paired up in Happy Two-Gether! Surrounded by bird, fox, and rabbit couples, and in the midst of glorious nature, you can’t help but have a great time!

Happy Two-Gether features Tumbling Reels, which give you even more chances to win because after a winning line is recorded, symbols from higher lines tumble into their place, creating brand new possibilities for big scores. And with Split Symbols, any one spot can contain two symbols, which means Split Symbols effectively double the amount you can win!

Behind the Scenes at High 5: Coffee to Die For by Black Widow

Check out the second edition of ‘Behind the Scenes at High 5,’ our new video series!

People all around the world drink coffee to get their days going, and it’s no different at the High 5 Games office. Well, maybe it’s a little different: other offices don’t have the nefarious Black Widow lurking around their kitchens. Find out what happens when the title character from the classic H5G slot tries to give her coworker some killer coffee…

I’ve met some baristas with bad attitudes in my day, but they typically stop at a (non-lethal) death stare when I order an extra-large decaf cappuccino with extra whipped cream half soy milk and half half-and-half shaken not stirred with a double shot of espresso and a little honey and then change my mind once they’ve made the drink and request a glass of room temperature water instead. Black Widow goes the extra psychotic mile, and offers poison with a smile on her face. Luckily, the targeted High 5-er was smart enough to turn her down…

Stay tuned, because the next edition of ‘Behind the Scenes at High 5,’ featuring Foxy Dynamite, will debut at High 5 Blog in the near future!

In the meantime, check out more High 5 Games video content on YouTube, and play High 5 Casino on Facebook, iOS, and Android.

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.

Howdy folks, and happy Friday! How’s October treating everybody? This week I’m going to highlight some of the new features at High 5 Casino on Facebook.

1. Check out the biggest wins

It’s now easier than ever to check out all the big wins happening at High 5 Casino because we’ve added a feed to the left side of our app that shows real wins from your fellow High 5-ers! If you’d rather focus on your own game, that’s easy too: just click ‘Hide’ on the big wins feed, and you can do your own thing.

2. Find games faster

We’ve added a new sorting feature to High 5 Casino that gives you the option to sort games several different ways. In addition to sorting by game level, you can now sort alphabetically, by latest releases, featured games, or even by High Limit games.

3. Contact us within the app

Most High-5ers know they can reach the customer care team by emailing support@h5g.com, but you can now contact us even faster. Click ‘Report/Contact’ in the right-hand corner of our Facebook app, and then select to send a message to the developer. You then compose your message, leave an email where we can respond to you, and press send.

I hope this clears up any confusion about our new features! As always, let me know if you’d like me to cover anything in particular in my next column. Happy spinning!

Game Spotlight: The Big Show

TheBigShow_1200x1200_Glass1
This is the moment you’ve been waiting for. You’ve worked hard – assembling a top-notch band, writing beautiful music, practicing and performing constantly – and now you’ve made it onto The Big Show, a television program where new musical stars are discovered. You stand on stage as the lights dim and the curtains part; now you’ll get to see if you’re ready for the spotlight.

The Big Show is now available to unlock at High 5 Casino! The music in this game is excellent, and the graphics and animations will make you feel like you’re right on set. Fans of The Voice or – going back a little further – The Ed Sullivan Show will definitely enjoy H5C’s 109th slot. It’s actually even better than The Voice, because The Big Show’s host looks like Vanilla Ice in a wig, plus you don’t have to listen to the dude from the Pizza Hut commercials talk. Triple Symbols and Free Games with a Multiplier Collection Feature let you score major jackpots even if it turns out you have no stage presence or the world isn’t ready for your musical style. Between The Big Show, The Palladium, Club Caliente, and Jazz, High 5 Casino has plenty of awesome slots for music lovers!

What do you think of The Big Show? What type of slots would you like to see High 5 Games make in the future?
