Slot Fundamentals: Hi-Lo Stacks Bonus

Slot-Fundamental_Hi_Lo_Stack
Slot Fundamentals is a column we run occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with Hi-Lo Stacks Bonuses, an innovative new feature.

Lots of slot games have bonus rounds, but if you want unique, exciting free games then you have to spin High 5 Games slots. We’ve put plenty of twists on the bonus round already – like Collection Bonuses, Enduring Bonuses, and Bonus Select – and now we’ve come up with another fun feature: Hi-Lo Stacks Bonuses!

When you trigger the free games in a Hi-Lo Stacks Bonus game, before you start spinning you blindly pick one major symbol and one minor symbol to be Super Stacked for the duration of the bonus round. These Super Stacked symbols increase the potential for huge blowout wins with stunning animated graphics. Check out Hi-Lo Stacks Bonuses in High 5 Casino games like Guitar Kings, Rev It Up, and Parfum Adore.

We hope you found that helpful, and that you land some major jackpots with Hi-Lo Stacks Bonuses! What’s your favorite bonus feature? What would you us to explain in the future?

Play High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky Casino.

Cool Casino of the Month: Golden Nugget Las Vegas

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.

Q: What’s the largest luxury hotel and casino in downtown Las Vegas? A: The Golden Nugget Las Vegas, which is February’s Cool Casino of the Month!

It’s easy to make terrible decisions in Las Vegas, but one choice you won’t regret making is staying at the Golden Nugget Las Vegas. The Golden Nugget has been open since 1946, and currently features hundreds of slots – including plenty from High 5 Games – and dozens of table games spread out over 38,000 square feet. When you’re tired of gambling you can head back to one of the Golden Nugget’s 2,419 rooms and suites, which are spread out over four towers, and take a quick nap. Shoppers can indulge at one of the Golden Nugget’s exclusive stores, and those who like to be pampered can be spoiled with spa and salon services. If you’re more interested in partying, then check out The Tank – a heated year-round pool complete with a shark tank, three-story waterslide, and private cabanas – and the Golden Nugget’s variety of bars and lounges. Of course, no matter what type of person you are you’re going to have to eat eventually, and that’s when the Golden Nugget’s seven different restaurants come in handy.

Even if you’ve never been to Las Vegas, you’ve probably seen the Golden Nugget; it’s been featured in television shows, games, and movies like the 1971 James Bond film Diamonds Are Forever and the 2006 movie Smokin’ Aces.

If you’re anywhere in New Jersey, you can spin 18 premium H5G slots – including Cave King, Valkyrie Queen, Rocket Man, Sirens, and Jaguar Princess – for real money from your laptop, tablet, or phone through Golden Nugget’s online casino.

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 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.

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!
