Behind the Scenes at High 5: Coffee to Die For by Black Widow

Check out the second edition of ‘Behind the Scenes at High 5,’ our new video series!

People all around the world drink coffee to get their days going, and it’s no different at the High 5 Games office. Well, maybe it’s a little different: other offices don’t have the nefarious Black Widow lurking around their kitchens. Find out what happens when the title character from the classic H5G slot tries to give her coworker some killer coffee…

I’ve met some baristas with bad attitudes in my day, but they typically stop at a (non-lethal) death stare when I order an extra-large decaf cappuccino with extra whipped cream half soy milk and half half-and-half shaken not stirred with a double shot of espresso and a little honey and then change my mind once they’ve made the drink and request a glass of room temperature water instead. Black Widow goes the extra psychotic mile, and offers poison with a smile on her face. Luckily, the targeted High 5-er was smart enough to turn her down…

Stay tuned, because the next edition of ‘Behind the Scenes at High 5,’ featuring Foxy Dynamite, will debut at High 5 Blog in the near future!

In the meantime, check out more High 5 Games video content on YouTube, and play High 5 Casino on Facebook, iOS, and Android.

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.

Howdy folks, and happy Friday! How’s October treating everybody? This week I’m going to highlight some of the new features at High 5 Casino on Facebook.

1. Check out the biggest wins

It’s now easier than ever to check out all the big wins happening at High 5 Casino because we’ve added a feed to the left side of our app that shows real wins from your fellow High 5-ers! If you’d rather focus on your own game, that’s easy too: just click ‘Hide’ on the big wins feed, and you can do your own thing.

2. Find games faster

We’ve added a new sorting feature to High 5 Casino that gives you the option to sort games several different ways. In addition to sorting by game level, you can now sort alphabetically, by latest releases, featured games, or even by High Limit games.

3. Contact us within the app

Most High-5ers know they can reach the customer care team by emailing support@h5g.com, but you can now contact us even faster. Click ‘Report/Contact’ in the right-hand corner of our Facebook app, and then select to send a message to the developer. You then compose your message, leave an email where we can respond to you, and press send.

I hope this clears up any confusion about our new features! As always, let me know if you’d like me to cover anything in particular in my next column. Happy spinning!

Game Spotlight: The Big Show

TheBigShow_1200x1200_Glass1
This is the moment you’ve been waiting for. You’ve worked hard – assembling a top-notch band, writing beautiful music, practicing and performing constantly – and now you’ve made it onto The Big Show, a television program where new musical stars are discovered. You stand on stage as the lights dim and the curtains part; now you’ll get to see if you’re ready for the spotlight.

The Big Show is now available to unlock at High 5 Casino! The music in this game is excellent, and the graphics and animations will make you feel like you’re right on set. Fans of The Voice or – going back a little further – The Ed Sullivan Show will definitely enjoy H5C’s 109th slot. It’s actually even better than The Voice, because The Big Show’s host looks like Vanilla Ice in a wig, plus you don’t have to listen to the dude from the Pizza Hut commercials talk. Triple Symbols and Free Games with a Multiplier Collection Feature let you score major jackpots even if it turns out you have no stage presence or the world isn’t ready for your musical style. Between The Big Show, The Palladium, Club Caliente, and Jazz, High 5 Casino has plenty of awesome slots for music lovers!

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

Behind the Scenes at High 5: The Audition of a Lifetime by Ancient Arcadia

Check out the first edition of ‘Behind the Scenes at High 5,’ our new video series!

Endless riches and beauty abound in Ancient Arcadia, but apparently musical talent does not. When a character from the classic slot shows up at the High 5 Games office equipped with a pan flute and a dream, creative sound director Aldo is kind enough to hear him out…

I doubt he got a call back to join H5G’s top-notch sound department. However, sources suggest the character from Ancient Arcadia eventually found a way to turn around his floundering music career and start the hit band Nickelback, so everything worked out in the end.

Stay tuned, because the next edition of ‘Behind the Scenes at High 5,’ featuring Black Widow, will debut at High 5 Blog in the near future!

In the meantime, check out more High 5 Games video content on YouTube, and play Ancient Arcadia at High 5 Casino on Facebook, iOS, and Android.

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!

WM_vs_CK
Woolly Mammoth vs. Cave King

Who would win in a fight between a Woolly Mammoth and the Cave King?

The Cave King clearly isn’t a slouch; after all, he has managed to become the ruler of his slot universe, which is no easy task. But look at him, covered in jewels, flanked by the Cave Queen and a friendly dinosaur. The man’s become complacent, perhaps a little paunchy even. He doesn’t want to fight anymore, he just wants to enjoy the spoils of his position. Now check out Woolly Mammoth. Look at those tusks, and that fierce, hungry stare. Woolly Mammoth is ready to throw down, and I think he’d squash the Cave King and any primitive weapons he could muster.

EDGE: Woolly Mammoth

STS_Last-Master-vs-Dragon-Showdown
Last Master vs. Dragon Showdown

Who would win in a fight between the warriors from Dragon Showdown and the Last Master?

Hmm. If it was just the Last Master against any single fighter from Dragon Showdown, I think I’d have to go with the Last Master, seeing as how she’s the last remaining person who’s well-versed in one particularly deadly martial art. However, if she’s going up against the Dragon Showdown collective, I think I’d have to pick the side with the numbers advantage. Sure, no one dude from Dragon Showdown may be as talented as the Last Master, but if there’s like six of them and only one of her, they’ll eventually emerge victorious from battle.

EDGE: Dragon Showdown

Game Preview: Liang Zhu

STS_LiangZhu_1200x1200
Today’s post comes from High 5 Blog correspondent Ali.

Take a first look at Liang Zhu, which premieres soon as the 43rd slot at Shake the Sky Casino! Liang Zhu will be launching on Facebook, Shake the Sky Casino for iOS, and Shake the Sky Casino for Android.

Once upon a time, Zhu Yintai, a beautiful girl who dresses as a boy in order to attend school, falls in love with Liang Shanbo, a scholar. She eventually reveals her true identity to Liang, and he returns her love, but the pair is split up when Zhu must submit to a marriage her parents arranged. Liang dies, heartbroken, and Zhu follows shortly after, on the day she was supposed to be married. Both their spirits turn into butterflies, and they fly away, never to be separated again. Experience this famous Chinese tale in Liang Zhu, part of the Romance Series from High 5 Games.

This slot is filled with beautiful butterflies that make appearances throughout the base and bonus games to remind players of the everlasting love between Zhu Yintai and Liang Shanbo. The gameplay features Super Stacks and a Collection Bonus that lead to amazing wins!

Game Spotlight: Woolly Mammoth

WoollyMammoth_1200x1200_Glass1
Woolly Mammoth is now available for all players to unlock at High 5 Casino!

They roam the prehistoric tundra, majestically towering over all other life forms. Despite being peaceful, their sheer size inspires a mixture of fear and awe from all the creatures they encounter. Early humans, amazed by these giants, created drawings on cave walls to try and capture their grandeur. Journey way back in time to witness the legendary Woolly Mammoth!

Woolly Mammoth features the Collection Bonus, which multiplies the entire total winnings of the free games if players capture all five letters of the word ‘bonus.’ This total can be multiplied anywhere from 3x to 10x, depending on what mystery symbol the player chooses at the conclusion of the bonus round. Stacked Symbols and Stacked Wilds ensure that wins can grow as big as the animals that inspired the game!
