The Big Game at High 5 Casino

h5c_superbowl_1200_1200
Who’s excited for the big game between New England and Seattle this Sunday? I know I can’t wait to see 11 minutes of bone-crunching hits and perfect spirals spread out over 12 hours of TV coverage. I love football, but there’s way too much downtime during the game; occasionally I’ll doze off on second down and wake up before the teams are even lined up for third down. Even if you don’t appreciate football, you can still enjoy yourself by self-medicating with nachos and beer while watching commercials that cost approximately 66 billion dollars per second. Just don’t forget that Super Bowl Monday isn’t a national holiday – YET – so you still have to drag yourself into the office the next day. In the spirit of the upcoming showdown, we got to thinking which High 5 Casino characters would make the best football players:

Thundering Buffalo

I don’t care how good your team’s offensive line is, if they’re matched up against three or four of these bad boys on the defensive line your quarterback is getting sacked all day.

The Mighty Atlas

TMA would just wreck defenders as a running back. If he got a head of steam going the results would look something like this.

These lady monsters travel in packs, so they’d make a great group of gang-tackling linebackers. Plus, they’re undead so even if they lose a limb or something they won’t miss a play.

Rocket Man

Your team would never lose a game if the Rocket Man was under center as quarterback. He’d take the snap, toss a deep ball, then glide down the field and catch it himself!

The Sultan might rule Mars, but we’re on EARTH talking about EARTH-SPORTS. If he deigned to come here, he’d probably be unable to do anything but be a lame field goal kicker.

Which team are you rooting for this weekend? Win big at High 5 Casino before the game kicks off!

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!

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!

What do you think of The Green Machine Global? What type of slots would you like to see High 5 Games make in the future?

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!

TOTJ_VS_SOTP
Tales of the Jungle vs. Shadow of the Panther

Who’d win in a fight between the protagonist from Shadow of the Panther and the adventurer from Tales of the Jungle?

Sure, the adventurer from Tales of the Jungle has a spear, and he’s probably a decade younger than the protagonist from Shadow of the Panther. On the surface he may be the favorite in this fight, but I’d put my money on the odd fellow from Shadow of the Panther. Here’s a guy who’s spent his entire life in the jungle, living like an animal and only occasionally emerging from the shadows. He must be incredibly tough – just look at the scars on his face – but more importantly he’s completely insane, which is why he’d win this fight hands down.

EDGE: Shadow of the Panther

MT_vs_FD
Mystery Train vs. Foxy Dynamite

Would Foxy Dynamite be able to solve the riddle of the disappearing passengers on the Mystery Train?

My faith in Foxy Dynamite is boundless. If she was called in to figure out why passengers are disappearing from the Mystery Train, she’d figure it out quickly while looking fabulous. All she would have to do is interrogate everyone on the train – no one is capable of lying to Foxy when she’s grilling them. The bad guy would be disposed of, and then the party would begin!

EDGE: Foxy Dynamite

It’s time to announce the correct answer to the inaugural round of Slot Trivia! The largest jackpot payout ever in an online slot machine game is € 17,861,813, which is equivalent to $ 22,974,400. It was won by an anonymous player in Finland on Paf.com, who scored that insane jackpot off a mere € 0.25 bet on the Mega Fortune game. Congratulations to Barbara G., who did some internet sleuthing and came up with the correct answer. Barbara will receive a water bottle and t-shirt from High 5 Games.

Game Spotlight: The Newsmen

newmen_glass_no-logos
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!
