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

Slot Fundamentals: Triple Symbols

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

High 5 Games is always looking for new ways to make slots exciting. We’re never content to just give you the same old features or themes; instead, we’re constantly pushing forward to ensure that our games remain the best around. Are you a fan of Split Symbols? Then you’ll love Triple Symbols, one of the new features from H5G.

In an average three by five reel slot game, there can be no larger than a five-symbol win on the reels at any given time. Games with Triple Symbols give players the chance to get up to 15 symbols on any given line, because any one spot on the reels can contain up to three symbols. That means you can score three times as much on any given spin in a Triple Symbols game! Look for Triple Symbols in High 5 Casino games like The Big Show, Tales of Hercules, Love U, and Triple Raven.

We hope you found that helpful, and that you score some huge wins on Triple Symbols games! Which slot fundamental would you like to see us explain in the future?

Game Spotlight: Night Jasmine at High 5 Casino

Night_Jasmine_1200_1200_UNLOCKED_banners
Shake the Sky fan favorite Night Jasmine is now UNLOCKED for all players as the 113th slot at High 5 Casino. Below, High 5 Blog correspondent Nikita breaks down all the reasons why you should check out Night Jasmine at H5C.

I’ll admit it, I’m a hopeless romantic. So when I saw Night Jasmine, and heard its back story, for the first time, I instantly fell in love. Trust me, there’s a lot to love about this game.

First, the story rocks. Bound within the confines of the palace during the day due to her over-protective father, a young princess yearns to escape. At night, however, she’s able to briefly experience freedom and privacy in her secret garden. This magical place – filled with songbirds, playful frogs, and beautiful flowers — is her only refuge from a lonely, sheltered life. One fateful night, the alluring scent of a night jasmine flower draws her close, and when it suddenly transforms into a prince, her life is forever changed.

Second, the game’s artwork is absolutely GORGEOUS! Yes, so gorgeous that it warrants ALL CAPS. CRAP, NOW MY CAPS LOCK IS STUCK… There we go. When you play Night Jasmine, you’ll instantly see that it’s unlike any other game on High 5 Casino. And that’s intentional: Night Jasmine is the first slot from High 5 Games designed utilizing the traditional Asian paper-cut style. And by using rich hues of blue, red, yellow, and green, H5G’s Red Gold studio is able to truly capture the essence of a night spent in Southeast Asia.

Last but not least, the gameplay is stellar. Fans of Gypsy will fall in love with Night Jasmine’s 243 ways to win and Split Symbols, which make it possible to win up to 10 of a kind in just one spin! The retriggerable bonus round makes the playing experience even more exciting and gives players even more opportunities to score mega payouts!

I could go on and on about this game, but why not see for yourself? Night Jasmine is already one of my favorite games, and I’m sure it will soon make it to the top of your list as well. Give it a spin at High 5 Casino and I promise you won’t be disappointed!

High 5 Games Help Desk

BOW_Guy
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 High 5-ers, hope you’re all having a great week! Today I’m going to take you through the different ways to customize your High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky video poker experience.

1. Pick your theme and paytable

You can customize your video poker games by changing your card themes and the look of your paytables. Video poker defaults to the H5C and STS theme, but you can switch up your experience by unlocking awesome alternatives like the Moonlit Mermaids and Rum City themes. I’m partial to the new Triple Raven theme myself.

2. Make your game full screen

Just like with our slots, you can play full-screen video poker by clicking on the arrows next to the home button in the top right-hand corner of the screen. Check out this option for a more immersive video poker experience.

3. Sort games your way

You also have the option to change how your video poker games are displayed. While in the lobby, click on the gear next to your player-card button and choose to sort your games alphabetically or by level.

I hope these tips help spice up your video poker life! Let me know if there’s anything in particular I should address next time. Until then, happy spinning and good luck!

Behind the Scenes: Halloween at High 5 Games

No one made it out alive. If you’re in the New York City area, we suggest you stay away from the High 5 Games office. If the zombies have escaped into the streets, then all hope is lost – it’s time to hide your kids, hide your husband or wife, start praying to whatever deity you believe in, and get running…

As you can see, Halloween is kind of a big deal here. Last year, H5G held a costume contest, and this year the company went even further when it scheduled a shoot for an upcoming zombie game on Halloween and let its employees in on the fun. Unsurprisingly, a sizable number of High 5-ers decided that transforming into terrifying, bloodthirsty monsters was a better way to spend their afternoon than working. A week later, some of them still haven’t taken off their makeup, and instead have committed themselves to bringing about the zombie apocalypse.

What do you think of the H5G zombies? Did you dress up for Halloween this year?

Be on the lookout for this upcoming zombie game, and in the meantime play spooky slots like Ravishing Beauties at High 5 Casino!
