Slot Fundamentals: Enduring Bonuses

SlotFundamentals_UnderstandingEnduringBonuses_403x403
Slot Fundamentals is a column we’ll be running occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with Enduring Bonuses, which are types of bonus rounds found in some of our games.

The allure of a high-paying bonus round is one of the biggest reasons slots are so much fun. Slot players never know if their next spin is going to be the one that leads to a bunch of free chances to hit a huge jackpot. High 5 Games is dedicated to creating the most innovative titles on the market, which is why the company created Enduring Bonuses, which are twists on the traditional bonus round. But how exactly do Enduring Bonuses work?

There are two types of Enduring Bonuses, and they can both be best understood by defining them in contrast to typical bonus rounds. In a typical bonus round, players are awarded a certain number of free spins, after which the round ends. By contrast, Enduring Bonuses end when some other condition is met. In the Enduring Bonus in Dream Beauty, bonus rounds don’t end until players have scored a certain number of wins. When players land a win with the main character, their win counter goes up, not down (i.e. from 2 to 3 instead of 2 to 1). In Pasión y Fuego’s Enduring Bonus, the free games last until either three or four wilds lock into place in the middle reels, depending on how the bonus round was triggered. Enduring Bonuses tend to lead to higher-paying, longer-lasting bonus rounds, and they guarantee that players receive at least a few wins. Look for Enduring Bonuses in High 5 Casino games Dream Beauty and Pasión y Fuego and Shake the Sky games Golden Horse and Enchanted Beauty, which is coming later this week!

Slot Fundamentals: Clusterbucks

SlotFundamentals_UnderstandingClusterbucks_403x403
Slot Fundamentals is a column we’ll be running occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with Clusterbucks, which are an alternative to paylines and ways that determine wins in some of our games.

If you’re reading High 5 Blog, you’re probably familiar with paylines and ways, but you might not have heard of Clusterbucks, one of the latest gameplay innovations from High 5 Games. In a Clusterbucks slot, groups of matching symbols lead to big wins, even if they don’t start on the left-most reel. But how exactly do Clusterbucks work?

A Clusterbucks win occurs whenever four or more like symbols are found adjacent to one another on the 4 x 4 grid – even if they don’t begin on the leftmost row – with larger clusters of symbols naturally corresponding to larger wins. Some players find Clusterbucks to be a more aesthetically pleasing and intuitive way to reveal the outcome of each spin, because they can immediately look for and identify symbol groupings, rather than searching through numerous paylines or the scattered consecutive symbols that constitute wins in ways games. Look for Clusterbucks in High 5 Casino game Pasión y Fuego and Shake the Sky game Golden Horse!

High 5 Fight Club: H5C vs. STS Edition

We often ask our players over on the High 5 Casino fan page to comment on different game vs. game matchups. Today we’ll be taking a look at two different H5C vs. STS questions we came up with, and determining which side we prefer. Take our polls and let us know what you think!

Cirque-VS-WildRodeo_403x403
Wild Rodeo vs. Cirque Chinois

Would you rather attend the Wild Rodeo or witness the spectacle of Cirque Chinois?

Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m sure it’s plenty tough to ride an angry bull. I can barely ride a bike, so I can’t even imagine trying to stay on the back of a massive animal. And those insane clowns that dance around and distract the bull are very brave. I’m sure I’d have fun at a rodeo, if only for eight seconds at a time. But I’d still rather see the spectacle of Cirque Chinois. The performers in Cirque Chinois are unlike any you’ve ever seen before. They dangle high above the ground, pleasing the earthbound crowd that peers up at them with their death-defying acrobatic grace. They fly through the air with nothing beneath to cushion their fall, breathtakingly precise and agile in their movements. Plus, they have sweet costumes.

EDGE: Cirque Chinois

LuckyHorse-VS-GoldenHorse_403x403
Lucky Horse vs. Golden Horse

Would you rather run free like the stallions in Golden Horse or race for victory like those in Lucky Horse?

This is a tough one. It would probably be a lot of fun to be a wild horse. I’d enjoy just running around, munching oats and doing whatever horses do in their free time. But I think I’d get bored after a while. I’d probably prefer the life of a racehorse, what with all the competition and the glory. It would be weird to have a dude on my back, but I think I could put up with it if we were winning races, and I’d toss him if he tried to whip me. Until I broke a leg and got sent to the glue factory, it would be a great time.

Ringing In the Year of the Horse

STS_GoldenHorse_Unlocked_Milestone
Happy Chinese New Year! Ever wonder why each Chinese year is named after a different animal? According to legend, the Buddha once asked every animal to meet him on New Year’s Day. Only 12 came – the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig – so he named a year after each one in attendance. Each year is said to take on traits of its animal, as are people born during that year. For example, individuals born during the Year of the Horse are considered cheerful, energetic, witty, and talented. Because apparently horses are witty.

At Shake the Sky Casino we’re celebrating the Year of the Horse by unlocking the never-before-seen slot Golden Horse for all STS players! This visually stunning game was created in the style of the celebrated Chinese artist Xu Beihong, and features majestic horses practically leaping off the screen thanks to its immersive 3D animations. Clusterbucks and an Enduring Bonus will help you ring in the Chinese New Year by winning big!

But that’s not all – we’re also giving all STS players $888 in free STS cash! Chinese culture considers eight to be one of the luckiest numbers, so you’re sure to land some serious jackpots!
