High 5 Games Help Desk

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.

Hello there High 5-ers! Did you all survive the storm? We’re just digging out here at High 5 Games‘ New York office. Today I’m going to go over the different account types you can have at High 5 Casino, and where you can use them.

1. Facebook account

Most of you probably know that you can play High 5 Casino on Facebook, and all your progress is connected to your Facebook account. What you might not know is that you can use your Facebook account to log-in to our mobile apps on iOS and Android. You can also use your Facebook account to play our games through High5Casino.net.

2. PlayReal account

If you don’t have a Facebook account, or would rather not use your Facebook information, you can create a PlayReal account using your email address. You can use your PlayReal account to log-in at High5Casino.net and on iOS and Android.

3. Guest account

H5C guest accounts are only available on iOS and Android. You create a guest account by hitting ‘Play Now’ when you open the mobile app, instead of logging in. Guest accounts do not retain progress after your session is done, so we definitely recommend spinning with a Facebook or PlayReal account so you can save your progress.

Alright, that’s it for me and our account types. Please let me know in the comments of this post if you have any burning questions you’d like me to address in the future. However you log-in, thanks for playing High 5 Casino! Good luck and happy spinning!

Cool Casino of the Month: Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City

Cool-Casino-of-the-Month_2
Spinning at High 5 Casino or Shake the Sky Casino is plenty of fun, but sometimes you’ve got to get out and head to a real casino. Every month we’ll be highlighting a different land-based casino that you should visit if you’re ever in the area or ready for a trip.

If you’re a slot lover on the east coast, consider a trip to Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City the next time you have time to spare and some money burning a hole in your pocket. There you’ll find over 2,000 hotel rooms to go along with more than 120,000 square feet of gaming space, which translates to over 3,000 slot machines – including plenty of slots from High 5 Games – and 135 table games. In between bouts of gambling, you can visit The Quarter, a shopping mall located in the complex, or head out to enjoy Atlantic City’s boardwalk and beach. Party people can hit up one of Tropicana’s bars or clubs once the sun sets, while those looking for a more relaxing evening can enjoy one of the Trop’s 11 restaurants, then take in a show at its 2,000-seat showroom, comedy club, or IMAX theater. No matter your mood or inclination, there’s something fun for you to get into here.

Fans of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire have even more incentive to visit Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City: Mickey Duffy, the inspiration for Boardwalk’s incredibly annoying Mickey Doyle, was murdered at The Ambassador Hotel (which later became the Trop) as he slept in 1931. Morbid but true.

If you’re anywhere in New Jersey, you can spin H5G slots for real money from your laptop, tablet, or phone through www.tropicanacasino.com. Tropicana’s online casino features 16 top-notch H5G games like Double Da Vinci Diamonds, The Amulet and the Charm, Golden Knight, Shadow of the Panther, and Dangerous Beauty.

What’s your favorite casino to visit? In between now and your next vacation, get your slot fix at High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky Casino.

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!

ThunderRoad_VS_ReviTUp
Thunder Road vs. Rev it Up

Who’d win in a race between the bikers from Thunder Road and the drivers from Rev It Up?

Obviously, the drivers in Rev It Up know what they’re doing, but I think the edge here has to go to the bikers from Thunder Road, for a few reasons. For one, a motorcycle weighs way less than a car, so the bikers would be able to accelerate up to top speed way quicker than their four-wheeled competition. Furthermore, motorcycles are much easier to maneuver, which would help if the race was held in a crowded spot. There are just too many advantages to riding a motorcycle for the drivers in Rev It Up to overcome.

EDGE: Thunder Road

Cat-Gangster_VS_Rev-It-Up
Cat Gangster vs. Fortune Cat Fever

Who’d win in a fight between the Cat Gangster and the feline from Fortune Cat Fever?

This one’s a no-brainer. Sure, the kitty from Fortune Cat Fever is no slouch, and he might even have some sharp claws. In a fair fight, he might be able to take down the Cat Gangster. But the Cat Gangster doesn’t want to fight fair. He’s a bad, bad dude who will do whatever it takes to win. Even though I’d probably root for the cat from Fortune Cat Fever to win, I’d still bet on that degenerate, evil Cat Gangster.

EDGE: Cat Gangster

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?

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! 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!
