Top-Five High 5 Casino Games EVER

H5C_Top5GamesEver_1200x1200
Every month here at High 5 Blog we compile stats from High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky Casino, but today we have something special to share: The top-five games of all-time at H5C! There are 100+ premium slots at High 5 Casino, so if a game made the top five it must be truly loved by our players. Without further ado, here’s the list:

1. Secrets of the Forest

Secrets of the Forest takes players to a soothing and charming place where imagination is encouraged and dreams are realized. While in this enchanting world they play with mystical characters and win big with Tumbling Reels and Connected Lines.

2. Hoot Loot

Sometimes, a forest in the dead of night can be downright scary. It’s dark, there are strange noises, and who knows what’s lurking. But in this forest of fun, players are guaranteed to have a good time. Hoot Loot is a casino classic for its endearing characters and its ground-breaking features: the Hoot Line and the Hoo’s Safe Bonus.

3. The Amulet and the Charm

Need a little good fortune? Want to find the luckiest charm of them all? Look no further than The Amulet and the Charm. This High 5 Games hit takes players into a world of fantasy, where mysterious characters seek the precious amulet and all the wealth that comes with it. It’s celebrated for its great music, dramatic storytelling, and fun features like Scatter Bucks and Stacked Wilds.

4. Vivaldi’s Seasons

The hope of spring. The power of summer. The beauty of autumn. The chill of winter. The seasons resonate with people, as does the classic work by the great Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi. In this homage to the legendary musician from three centuries ago, H5G has created a striking new hit complete with Super Stacks and the Pick-A-Super-Stack feature.

5. Gypsy

She roams the countryside, her supernatural wagon illuminating a path for her band of devoted followers. Villages far and wide know her by name. Get on the good side of the gypsy, and anything may be granted to you – wealth, status, even knowledge of the future. Get on her bad side, and you’ll soon discover the true extent of her powers. Players love Gypsy because they score major jackpots with Split Symbols.

Slot Fundamentals: Split Symbols

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

In a three by five reel slot game, one would assume that there can be no larger than a five-symbol win on the reels at any given time. One might also take far too long to figure out the basic math involved in the preceding sentence, but that is neither here nor there. High 5 Games, never content to simply churn out run-of-the-mill content, disproves that assumption with its innovative feature Split Symbols. But how exactly do Split Symbols work?

Split Symbols give players the chance to get up to 10 symbols (as opposed to five) on any given line, because any one spot can contain two symbols. This means that you can hit it twice as big in a Split Symbols game as in a regular game! Look for Split Symbols in High 5 Casino games like Desert Rose, Gypsy, and Shadow of the Panther and Shake the Sky games like Cirque Chinois, Fortune Cat Fever, and Split Dragon.

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

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 I’ll be offering my thoughts on two interesting showdowns; take the polls below and let us know what you think!

Palladium_VS_CabaretNight
The Palladium vs. Cabaret Nights

Would you rather spend an evening at The Palladium or Cabaret Nights?

If you’re not dressed to the nines and looking for a good time, don’t even bother showing up at The Palladium, the hottest night club in town. If you’re ready for the night of your life, though, this is the place for you! Unfortunately, I am very rarely ready for the night of my life, and I don’t own many nice outfits, so I think I’d rather check out Cabaret Nights. Sipping on a glass of wine in a dark, crowded tavern while waiting for a show to begin sounds much better than awkwardly dancing by myself in a night club where I feel underdressed. Plus, in my imagination Cabaret Nights is pretty cheap and has a great selection of cheeses, while The Palladium is more expensive and has really underwhelming appetizers and no cheese plates at all. When in doubt, I follow the cheese.

EDGE: Cabaret Nights

Gypsy_vs_VanishingAct_403x403
Gypsy vs. The Vanishing Act

If you were hosting a party, would you rather have Gypsy telling fortunes or the escape artist from The Vanishing Act performing tricks?

If Gypsy was at my party, I feel like it would quickly turn into a bad time. Assuming she’s telling truthful fortunes, there’s probably a lot of bad stuff in my future. I don’t want to hire her just to find out I’m going to die broke, alone, and sickly – I’d rather find out slowly on my own, like a normal person. I’m not looking to be depressed at my party, which is why I’d rather hire the escape artist from The Vanishing Act to perform tricks. He wouldn’t tell me how crappy my life was going to get. Instead, he’d just bundle himself up in ropes and locks or whatever, drop himself in a water tank, and miraculously escape. I don’t even care if he’s somehow cheating, he’s still making me feel way better than that downer of a fortune teller.

Your Favorite Social Slots, Coming to a Casino Near You!

Bally Purchased Games_MilestoneV2
Today’s post comes from High 5 Blog correspondent Ali.

Players are always asking us where they can find their favorite High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky slots in real casinos. We know that our Facebook casinos are a great time, but we can appreciate that there’s no experience that matches the thrill of being in a real, live casino. For this reason, we’re very excited to announce that 10 new games from High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky Casino will be making their way to land-based casinos in the future, courtesy of Bally Technologies.

The great games that will be debuting on casino floors are Gypsy, Madame Monarch, Pasión y Fuego, Foxy Dynamite, Valkyrie Queen, Palace of Magic, Zen Panda, Night Jasmine, Silk & Steel, and MISS UNIVERSE Crowning Moment.

Make sure to keep an eye on the High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky fan pages for updates on when these fan-favorite games will be released. Which of our other social games would you like to see in your local casino? Let us know in the comments below!

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 I’ll be taking a look at two different questions we’ve posed before, and offering my two cents on the matchups. Take our polls and let us know what you think!

Gypsy_vs_WitchesRiches_403x403
Gypsy vs. Witches Riches

Would you rather have the fortune-telling abilities of Gypsy or the potion-making skills of the ladies from Witches Riches?

Both of these abilities sound amazing, but I’m a very lazy person, so I think I’m going to have to say that I’d rather have the fortune-telling abilities of Gypsy. It would be very cool to be a master potion-maker, but think of all the work that would entail. You’d have to find obscure ingredients, mix them properly, and probably do a bunch of other time-consuming stuff I haven’t even thought of. Plus, where do you even find a mortar and pestle these days? Or a cauldron, for that matter? I’d much rather just peer into a crystal ball and instantly be given foreknowledge of the future. That would be the coolest party trick ever!

EDGE: Gypsy

CatPrince-VS-Dogs_403x403
Cat Prince vs. Dogs

Do you think cats or dogs make better pets?

Really, cats and dogs are both great, so there’s no wrong answer here. And either a cat or a dog is a way better choice than any other possible pet. Especially ferrets. If you own a ferret, you clearly cannot be trusted to make life decisions. But I must deliver a verdict one way or the other, so I’m going to side with dogs, by a whisker. Cats are awesome, but they tend to be aloof, and they shed a lot. I’d rather have a happy-go-lucky dog that doesn’t shed as much, and is always excited to see me.

EDGE: Dogs

Game Spotlight: Night Jasmine

Night-Jasmine_843x403
Today’s game spotlight comes from Nikita, High 5 Blog’s Shake the Sky correspondent.

I’ll admit it, I’m a hopeless romantic. So when I saw Night Jasmine, and heard its back story, for the first time, I instantly fell in love. Trust me, there’s a lot to love about this game.

First, the story rocks. Bound within the confines of the palace during the day due to her over-protective father, a young princess yearns to escape. At night, however, she’s able to briefly experience freedom and privacy in her secret garden. This magical place – filled with songbirds, playful frogs, and beautiful flowers — is her only refuge from a lonely, sheltered life. One fateful night, the alluring scent of a night jasmine flower draws her close, and when it suddenly transforms into a prince, her life is forever changed.

Second, the game’s artwork is absolutely GORGEOUS! Yes, so gorgeous that it warrants ALL CAPS. CRAP, NOW MY CAPS LOCK IS STUCK… There we go. When you play Night Jasmine, you’ll instantly see that it’s unlike any other game on High 5 Casino or Shake the Sky. And that’s intentional: Night Jasmine is the first H5G game designed utilizing the traditional Asian paper cut style. And by using rich hues of blue, red, yellow, and green, H5G’s Red Gold studio is able to truly capture the essence of a night spent in Southeast Asia.

Last but not least, the gameplay is stellar. Fans of High 5 Casino’s Gypsy will fall in love with Night Jasmine’s Split Symbols, which make it possible to win up to 10 of a kind in just one spin! The retriggerable bonus round makes the playing experience even more exciting and gives players even more opportunities to score mega payouts!

I could go on and on about this game, but why not see for yourself? Night Jasmine is already one of my favorite games, and I’m sure it will soon make it to the top of your list as well. Be sure to check it out on Shake the Sky when it debuts next week! You won’t be disappointed!

Game Spotlight: Gypsy

Gypsy_843x403

Since its March 2013 debut at High 5 Casino, Gypsy has been a runaway success. More than nine months after its premiere, the slot is amongst the very top of all games at H5C in average number of spins per session. We decided to chat with Mario, one of High 5 Games’ art directors, to try to get a sense of just why Gypsy has been so popular. His short answer: It’s an awesome game. His long answer:

“Gypsy had been kicking around High 5 Games for a while, but when I started working on it I decided it needed a total overhaul – the Gypsy wasn’t sultry or mysterious enough. I ended up redesigning the entire game in about a week, and to my surprise Tony [H5G’s CEO] loved it right off the bat. After some more fine-tuning – Louai, one of our animators, made a really cool animation where you fly through the village and into the Gypsy’s home, and the sound team composed an awesome, atmospheric score – the game was ready to go. This is one of those games that came very easily; it basically just fell out of my pencil. Plus, the math model and game features are cool and exciting. It’s really just a dynamite slot, from the gameplay to the art to the music.”

Mario says that Gypsy was inspired partly by Esmeralda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame, but that her backstory was intentionally kept vague so players could fill it in using their imaginations. You don’t need a crystal ball (eh, eh, get it?) to see that Gypsy’s combination of stellar art design and innovative gameplay is what has been keeping it at the top of the pile for so long.
