The Newsmen is the 124th game to release at High 5 Casino! Live footage for this game was filmed in High 5 Games‘ in-office studios using real actors and rad 70s-style costumes. Mario, the art director of H5G’s 50 West studio, provided some insight into the background of this far-out new game:
Action News Channel 5 is New York City’s top-rated newscast in the 1970s, but when an internal drug ring threatens to bring the news media giant down, NYC’s top undercover detectives pose as newsmen to bring the drug dealers to justice. It sounds like an ideal plan — the only problem is, while they’re truly New York’s finest cops, they’re also the worst newscasters in the world!
Get to know each of The Newsmen below, and find out more about their double lives — newscasters by day, crime fighters by night!
The Newsmen features Super Stacks and Bonus Select, so you know big wins are in store. Players that unlocked Glamorous Getaway and reached game level 100 before January 14th 11:59 pm EST can enjoy The Newsmen unlocked! If you didn’t unlock Glamorous Getaway or reach level 100 in time, no sweat! You can still unlock The Newsmen on H5C’s lobby slot.

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.

Slot Fundamentals is a column we run occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with Bonus Select, a popular feature that can be found in many of our games.
Slot players love bonus rounds. There are few things better than seeing the symbols line up just so, and getting a bunch of free spins (and hopefully some big wins) as a result. High 5 Games is always trying to come up with fun new experiences for its players, which is why it invented Bonus Select, a twist on the traditional bonus round. But how exactly does Bonus Select work?
When Bonus Select is triggered, players can choose one of five options for their free games. Each bonus option offers a different number of spins and three different multiplier values that can appear on wild symbols. The multipliers are additive, creating great opportunities for a winning combination. The more spins you opt for, the lower your multiplier values, and vice versa. If you’re feeling very lucky, you can go for a few spins with high multipliers, or if you’d like a longer bonus you can choose more spins with lower multipliers; the type of bonus round you experience in a slot game with this feature is totally up to you! Look for Bonus Select in High 5 Casino games like Wellspring and Love and Valor and Shake the Sky games like Dragon Showdown and Big Dragon Lounge.
We hope you found that helpful! Which slot fundamental would you like to see us explain in the future?
As of last weekend, summer is officially here. We hope all of our players at High 5 Casino have a wonderful few months filled with backyard barbeques, trips to the beach, and [insert other clichéd summer activity here]. Sometimes, though, you need to get out of the sun and enjoy a little indoors time. Here are a few High 5 Casino games that can help you beat the heat:
What could be more refreshing than a dip into Pearl Bay? This exotic destination isn’t quite like your local creek. Check out exquisite fish and curious mermaids while winning big with Locking Wilds and the Bonus Mega Multiplier!
The hottest night club in town has to have air conditioning, right? Regardless, as you’re drinking and dancing the night away while surrounded by glamorous characters in an opulent setting, you’ll certainly feel cool. Major jackpots with Super Symbols don’t hurt, either.
Spending an afternoon at a beautiful waterfall that also happens to be the Fountain of Youth sounds like pretty much the ideal summer day. You’ll come for the surroundings, but you’ll stay because of incredible wins with Bonus Select!
Deep below the surface, an aquatic wonderland filled with underwater friends awaits you. Take a deep breath, and search for sunken treasure, which you’ll likely find thanks to Split Symbols!
Another week, another amazing game to play at High 5 Casino! This week’s release is Love and Valor, and as the latest High Limit game at H5C it comes unlocked for everyone! In addition to being immediately available, High Limit games also have no player-level based max-bet limit, so you can score some spectacular payouts with 576 ways to win and Bonus Select whether you’re a newbie or a veteran at High 5 Casino.
The amazing art studios at High 5 Games never fail to amaze me: One week, they’re working on a game about cats, the next they’re making a game all about partying, and then they can switch it up and come out with something like Love and Valor. Regardless of the theme or the style, every game looks great. If I was an artist here, we would still have a variety of games, but they would all come out looking like crudely drawn stick figures.
Love and Valor transports players back to a world engulfed by World War II, but the true battle in H5G’s latest slot takes place in the heart. A beautiful singer is torn between the steady love she already knows and the potential love she feels for another. Who will she choose, and will they even survive the battles that lie ahead?

The search has consumed your life. You’ve been ridiculed and called mad, yet you’ve never given up. After all, if you discover what you’re looking for, it will all be worth it. Just when all seems lost, a new lead appears that seems promising. After a long journey through uncharted territories, you come across a beautiful waterfall where two lovely women wait. Have you finally discovered the Fountain of Youth?
Wellspring debuts as the latest amazing game at High 5 Casino today! With 90+ slots available to play at this point, it won’t be long before we’re the only casino app on Facebook with over 100 premium games! Wellspring has 243 ways to win and Bonus Select to ensure that you’ll land some reinvigorating jackpots while visiting this mythical locale. I don’t even know if I’d want to drink from the Fountain of Youth, though. Not because of a philosophical concern about death bringing meaning to life, or because I wouldn’t want to live without my family and friends around. But rather because I know I would get to the Fountain of Youth right after some really gross person misread the instructions and bathed in it instead of drinking from it. I’d rather accept my own mortality than drink some random dude’s bath water.

Kiss of the Rose is coming to High 5 Casino next week! In the meantime, meet Rose. This sultry vixen’s beauty is only rivalled by the flowers that adorn her kingdom. Beware – she’ll lure you in with her loveliness, then steal your heart with just one kiss!
Scott, an illustrator in H5G’s 50 West studio, graciously provided some background on Kiss of the Rose:
“I was the starting and finishing artist on Kiss of the Rose, so I was able to see all of its different iterations along with [H5G animator] Guillermo, who also worked quite a bit on this slot. Normally our games have more specific storylines, but this was more of a mood piece. We tried a few different color palettes until we arrived at something that felt different than most H5G releases. It’s a game about atmosphere. It has a dark, gothic touch, yet still remains aesthetically pleasing and vibrant. We wanted to try something different, yet still retain the qualities that High 5 Games are known for.”
Aside from its unique and engaging art design, Kiss of the Rose also features 243 ways to win, and the Bonus Select, which leads to spectacular wins during free games! We highly recommend you check this game out when it debuts at High 5 Casino next week!
