H5C BBQ

H5C_4thOfJuly
We here at High 5 Games hope that all of our players had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! Sorry for the lack of a post yesterday; I spent Monday in a haze brought on by an excess of beer and burgers that has only recently lifted. All of the grilling and schmoozing and fireworks over the weekend got me thinking which High 5 Casino characters would be fun to have at a barbecue. Here’s what I came up with:

Golden Knight

The Golden Knight definitely knows his way around a grill. He could probably even go out and track down some more food if need be. Plus, you know with that sword of his he’ll totally be in charge of carving and serving food. Anyone who tries to pick from his plate should expect a nasty punishment, though…

Jazz

We all know that good music is a big part of any successful shindig. What could be better than the musicians from Jazz providing the tunes for your backyard barbecue?

This is sort of selfish reasoning, but if you invite The Empress Josephine you know you’re getting some absurd present from her. She’ll bring you a goblet made of rubies or something while everyone else is drinking out of plastic cups. You could pawn that goblet and then throw a barbecue every weekend for the rest of your life!

Bad parties seem like they never end, while good parties always end way too soon. If you invite the Empress of Time to your barbecue, you know you can either run it back if you’re having a good time or fast forward to the end if you’re bored and your creepy uncle won’t stop talking to you.

Slot Fundamentals: Scatter Bucks

Slot-Fundamental_Scatter-Bucks_1200x1200
Slot Fundamentals is a column we run occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with Scatter Bucks, a popular feature that can be found in many of our games.

On a typical slot game, as the reels stop spinning and the symbols settle you can usually tell if you’ve scored a win via paylines or ways. If the symbols don’t match up properly, you’re basically out of luck. High 5 Games is not content to just make typical slots, though, which is why the company invented Scatter Bucks, a feature that can lead to big wins even on spins when the reels don’t align. But how exactly do Scatter Bucks work?

Scatter Bucks are activated by placing a side bet in addition to betting on paylines. With Scatter Bucks, some wild symbols will also display random credit values – anywhere from 10x to 5,000x the bet multiplier! Land these symbols and the winnings will automatically be awarded to you. It’s that simple. Look for Scatter Bucks in High 5 Casino games like The Amulet and the Charm and Golden Knight, and Shake the Sky Casino games like Golden Peony.

We hope you found that helpful! Which slot fundamental would you like to see us explain in the future?

High 5 Games Help Desk

Every couple of weeks Elaine, High 5 Blog’s CRM correspondent, will stop by to discuss ways to optimize your High 5 Casino and/or Shake the Sky experience.

Hey High 5-ers! It’s been a while, I’ve missed you guys! This week, I want to give you some pointers on betting and payouts for High 5 Casino.

1. Make sure you’re aware of your line bet

If you read High 5 Blog, you’re familiar with how paylines work, and you know that if you’re not betting all the paylines, you haven’t maximized your ability to win. Unfortunately, players will sometimes accidentally lower the number of lines they are playing without realizing it. Then, they’ll hit what looks like a big win only to discover that they weren’t playing the necessary lines. To avoid this type of frustration and confusion, make sure you’re aware of the number of lines you’re betting at all times.

2. Make sure you have Scatter Bucks activated

In addition to a line bet, some games give you the option to wager a side bet to activate special features, like Scatter Bucks. In Scatter Bucks games, like Golden Knight and The Amulet and the Charm, you must bet all the lines, plus the additional side bet, for the chance to see Scatter Bucks on your reels. If you do not do this, you may get very frustrated, as you miss your opportunity for big Scatter Bucks wins.

3. Watch the zeros

Some of our players have experienced confusion with the zeros when adjusting their bets. We’ve heard from players who believed they were betting $400.00 a spin, only to realize after a few spins that they were actually betting $40,000.00! To avoid a horrible surprise like that, we suggest you double check your bet before you spin or put your game on autoplay, to make sure that you aren’t accidentally betting 100x more than you intended!

With these pointers in mind, you should feel more prepared to bet wisely. And remember, if you have any questions about your bet, or your payouts, you can always email us at support@h5g.com, or comment here and I’ll be happy to cover it next time. In the meantime, good luck and happy spinning!

High 5 Fight Club

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 battles we came up with, and determining who would emerge victorious. Take our polls and let us know what you think!
GK-VS-DB_403x403
Golden Knight vs. Dangerous Beauty

The battle of the sexes. The showdown between the swords. Golden Knight has a size advantage, and he’s definitely wearing a lot more armor than Dangerous Beauty, so it’s understandable why some may side with him in this matchup. But I’m going with Dangerous Beauty. Golden Knight strikes me as a bit of a glory hound – he’s just fooling around, looking to score some fame and maybe the princess’ heart by winning the tournament of champions. He’s never been in a battle with much on the line – in between tournaments he probably drinks a bunch of mead and hunts for pheasants. Dangerous Beauty, on the other hand, must fight for her life and her land when invaders try to take what’s hers. So you know she’s not messing around. Plus, look at that katana, and that wild gaze. She’d slice and dice this aristocratic pretty boy up in no time flat.

EDGE: Dangerous Beauty

FD-VS-LO_403x403
Foxy Dynamite vs. The Lovely Outlaws

The Lovely Outlaws shot the sheriff, but would they be able to shoot the coolest detective of all time, Foxy Dynamite? This is a tough one to adjudicate. Foxy has modern weaponry and transportation on her side, plus she’s taken down some of the toughest criminals around in her day. But The Lovely Outlaws earned that name, and they’re still on the loose for a reason. Unfortunately, I think the bad guys win this time around. The Lovely Outlaws have a serious numbers advantage, and I think that and their sharpshooting would be enough for them to take down Foxy, despite her best efforts.

EDGE: The Lovely Outlaws
