h5c_romeo_juliet_glass_1200_banner
Here at High 5 Games, we take inspiration from all different types of sources when coming up with new ideas for premium slots, which is why we have such a wonderfully diverse collection of titles. That being said, some sources are better than others, and no source is better than William Shakespeare, the greatest writer in English of all time. Romeo & Juliet premieres today as the 128th game at High 5 Casino!

It’s the most classic love story ever told – and now, there’s a slot that lets the tale of these star-crossed lovers unfold before your eyes. In Romeo & Juliet, you’ll feel like you’re part of the drama as you witness the emotions of the two lovebirds on screen while experiencing the thrill of trying to capture your own prize.

Romeo & Juliet features Timeless Romance Awards during bonus rounds. In order to score free games, you’ll need to land three bonus symbols. But the fun hardly stops there! In the bonus round, you can win up to two free spins on EACH spin if you land a ‘+1 Free Games!’ symbol. A single bonus round can award up to 100 free spins!

If you advanced Guitar Kings to game level 100 by February 11th at 11:59 pm EST, then you’ll receive Romeo & Juliet unlocked!

Player Spotlight

h5c_player_spotlight_1200
High 5 Blog’s newest column features interviews with High 5 Casino players. The inaugural edition spotlights loyal, longtime High 5-er Ellie Morin.

1. How did you hear about High 5 Casino?
I played High 5 Games’ Da Vinci Diamonds slot at DoubleDown, and loved it so much I researched who the maker of the game was. I saw your ad on the sidebar of Facebook one day, clicked on it, and have been an avid fan ever since. I began playing the day you opened your doors.

2. What’s your go-to game on H5C?
Magic Orchid is my go-to because it’s a game that doesn’t have a lot of empty spins and I can usually win enough to get me back in the game.

3. What’s your favorite H5C game of all time?
I have to say Gypsy. I love the theme, the music, and the colors. It’s upbeat, and the animation of the wagon flying across the screen after a big win gets my heart pumping!

4. What are your favorite game features?
You can win a lot during free games so I love features like the Collection Bonus and the Enduring Bonus.

5. If you could hang out with any character from one of our games, who would it be?
Gypsy. I’d ask her to read my beads! I’d also want her to take me for a ride in that wild wagon of hers!

6. If you could be a High 5 Casino character, who would you like to be?
I’d like to be the main character in the new Thunder Road game. I think riding a motorcycle at my age would be a hoot.

7. If you could couple up two characters from our games, who would you marry off?
I would introduce The Cat Prince to The Empress Josephine. They’d be perfect together.

8. Which High 5 Casino game do you feel the luckiest with?
Good question – my luckiest game is Dr. Amante. He knows what it takes to make me happy.

9. Which H5C game has the best bonus in your opinion?
Thunder Road has been very good to me. The multiple bonus options pay well.

10. Which High 5 Casino game do you think has the best sound package?
I love the sound in Gypsy because the music builds up with each spin, and it’s great when the win comes and the wagon shows up. I also love the music in The Charleston because it’s an original score and it’s very upbeat.

Game Spotlight: Guitar Kings

guitar-king_1200x1200_glass_ios
They are masters of their instruments, charismatic musicians who draw thousands into stadiums to hear them play. They travel around the world on the strength of their tunes, bringing people to their feet wherever they go. Women want them and men want to be them. Their musical styles may be different, but they all undoubtedly rock. Who are they? They’re the Guitar Kings!

Guitar Kings arrives as the 127th game available to be unlocked at High 5 Casino. Having played alto saxophone in high school jazz band, I feel a certain affinity to the virtuosos who comprise the Guitar Kings; if there are any differences between playing big band tunes to a few hundred bored parents and electrifying an entire arena with original rock and roll jams, I’ve yet to find them. Super Stacks and a Hi-Lo Stacks Bonus help you cash in while you’re rocking out.

Which real-life musicians would be your Guitar Kings? If I had to narrow it down, mine would probably be Chad Kroeger from Nickelback, Mark Tremonti from Creed, Buckethead during his Guns N’ Roses days, and Ryan Peake, also from Nickelback.

Head to High 5 Casino now to participate in the Guitar Kings Challenge! If you unlock Guitar Kings and reach game level 100 by February 11th at 11:59 pm EST, you’ll receive Romeo & Juliet, our next game, unlocked by 5:00 pm EST on February 12th.

What are you waiting for? Unlock Guitar Kings and get to spinning at High 5 Casino.

Dozens of popular slots from High 5 Games have been added to High 5 Casino for iOS and High 5 Casino for Android. In the mood for something far-out and fantastical? Then spin on Empress of Time or Stella Drive and the Orb of Chance. Or maybe you feel like hanging out with some animals; if that’s the case, try to land some jackpots on Cat Gangster or Sapphire Tiger. If you’re in a lighthearted mood, then give H5G classics like Cave King or Liger Loot a whirl. Those looking for awesome storylines should give The Newsmen or Love and Valor their attention, and anyone who wants a little adventure in their lives should check out Thunder Road or Mystery Train.

Game Spotlight: The Green Machine Global

h5c_green_machine_glass_1200_apple
It’s pure and simple, fast and fun. Choose your risk and your reward in The Green Machine Global, which debuts today as the 125th slot at High 5 Casino! The Green Machine Global has different gameplay mechanics than the other slots at H5C, so we asked game designer Brent to fill us in on the details:

“What you see is what you get in The Green Machine Global. Instead of paylines or ways, you can choose to bet on up to five different colors, all of which have different values – some will show up often with small wins, while others will show up less often but yield larger payouts. If one of the colors you bet on lands anywhere on the reels, you win. It’s that simple! You can play it safe, go for big jackpots, or do both, so there’s lots of flexibility for players. This is the first game that I worked on to debut at High 5 Casino, so I hope it does well and players enjoy it!”

The Green Machine Global is inspired by The Green Machine, which is one of the most popular land-based slot games of all time. We hope H5C players love our version as much as the original!
