H5C’s Gives Back: Stop Hunger Now


It’s that time of the year again! Time to spread some holiday love to people who need it. That’s why High 5 Games decided to partnered with Stop Hunger Now and help those who need a delicious meal this Thanksgiving!

Stop Hunger Now was founded in 1998. Their mission is to end hunger by providing food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable people, and by creating a global commitment to mobilize necessary resources. They have provided over 180 million meals in 65 countries and the number continues growing. The aid provided by Stop Hunger Now supports school feeding, vocational training, and early childhood development programs in schools, orphanages and community medical clinics. By working through these programs, the meals not only feed people, but they help break the cycle of poverty by encouraging and bolstering opportunities for education, skill development, and health care.

Because of your love and support during H5C’s Gives Back Fundraiser, held for 24 hours on November 24th, we raised $2,240 to benefit Stop Hunger Now! Thanks to all the warmhearted High 5-ers who participated in our fundraiser, more people are able to enjoy a meal! From deep inside our hearts, we are really proud and honored to have you as our fans. Thank you!

Player Spotlight: Harley F.


Get to know another High 5 Casino loyal player in today’s High 5 Blog. Meet Harley F. from Austin, Texas and see if you and him share the same lucky game at High 5 Casino!

1. How did you hear about High 5 Casino?
After teaching high school for 35 years, my ex-students wanted me to join Facebook so we could keep up with each other. My sister was an avid slots fan and we visited the casinos nearby. I found Facebook offers some real casino slots and that High 5 Casino had one of my all-time favorites in the local casino: Thundering Buffalo.

2. What’s your go-to game on High 5 Casino?
When I really want to win I visit Crystal Kingdom.

3. What is your favorite High 5 Casino game of all time? Why?
Lucky Horse has to be my favorite with its wilds which run across the page. Sometimes it pays really well, others not so much. Just have to know when to go play another game. Horse racing and the Twenties era are appealing.

4. Name your top 3 favorite High 5 Casino game features.
Stacked Wilds and the multiple icon features are hard to beat. The substituting icons are great. Hate it when they concentrate to the right and don’t win. Love it when they hit the millions.

5. If you could hang out with any character from a High 5 Casino game, which character would you choose? Why?
Leonardo da Vinci would be an extraordinary gent to visit with and take to dinner. What a tremendous amount of talent he demonstrated.

6. If you could be a High 5 Casino character, who would you choose to be? Why?
Living in Paris would be nice, so the gent from City of Light game would be my pick. He resembles Tom Hanks who is very talented.

7. Which High 5 Casino game brings you the most luck?
Winning a 56 million single spin on Empress of Time with a smaller bet would have to be my best example of luck.

8. In your opinion, which High 5 Casino game has the best bonus feature? Why?
Valkyrie Queen because it lets you keep winning and winning more and more bonus spins.

9. Which High 5 Casino game has the best music/sound features? Why?
Jazz for sure…reminds me of New Orleans’ Latin Quarter. The music and the bonus sounds are excellent.

10. Fight Night: If had to choose two High 5 Casino characters to fight each other, which characters would you pick and who do you think would actually win the fight?
Fight night featuring the red zombie in Zombie Zone and the pumpkin headed Haunted Horseman would be great entertainment. Haunted Horseman would win as he is a trained soldier.

11. If you could spend a week’s vacation in one of our games, which game would you choose? Why?
Aegean Sea in Aegean Sunset has to be a top choice as the Greek Islands are so fantastic and relaxing, not to mention rich in historic background.

12. If High 5 Casino hosted their very own Prom, which characters would you choose to be crowned Prom King and Queen?
At the High 5 Casino Prom, the Prom King would be Prince Lightning and Prom Queen the Lady in purple from Brazilia. They both already have crowns and their colors match.

Employee Spotlight


High 5 Games got talents! In today’s blog, we feature one of our music talents, who has created great music for many of our slot games. Get to know Matthew T. and see which slot game has the music that he is most proud of!

1. How long have you been a part of High 5 Games?
I’ve worked for High 5 games for a total of five years; one year as an independent contractor and four as a full time employee.

2. Name the game you are most proud of working on for High 5 Casino and tell us why it’s your favorite and what inspired you.
I’m most proud of the entire sound package for the game Empress of the Nile. The scope of the main and bonus game music is epic. In the pick bonus, I composed an intimate Middle Eastern song with a traditional rhythm; that called on my world music background. I even had a friend build me an instrument called a Marching Machine to imitate the sound of troops marching. It was a creative challenge throughout and I think, ultimately, the entire sound package works to create a game playing experience that’s fun on a number of levels.

3. How long does it take our Sound Department to create and complete the sound package for a game? Can you tell us what goes into it?
We, in the sound department, have roughly a month to complete a sound package from the time we’re delivered the art. Sometimes we have more time for development and other times less. If we have more lead time to work before the art is delivered to us, we’re given a game title and description and a single composer gets started on the music that will accompany game play, but doesn’t need to be synced to specific animations. Similarly, we can work on the sound of the reel spins that are also not reliant on animation synchrony. When we receive the animations for the symbols and transitions, we work on the sound design and music for those. Once the entire package is completed by the composer, it goes to a second stage of mixing and mastering. That last process puts the polish on the game in terms of making sure that the 75 plus individual musical elements created by the composer all sounding great in relation to each other and in the context of game-play.

 4. What instruments do you play and when did you start learning?
I’m a percussionist, and have been since I was 8 years old, so in a sense, anything you strike to create music, I play! I can play enough piano and guitar and bass for the purposes of composing, but I’ll stick to percussion when it comes to performing for an audience.

 5. Who/What inspired you to become a musician?
My parents, who were musicians themselves, inspired me to start playing instruments. My dad was a drummer and my mom is a pianist. However, I was inspired to be a professional musician when I realized that it wasn’t a matter of becoming a musician — I already was; as many other pursuits as I tried, I still kept coming back to performing music. With that realization, though, it was just a matter of committing to the work necessary to be the best musician I could be.

6. If you weren’t a musician, what other profession would you have chosen?
If not a musician, a writer and professor of literature. I did that for a number of years and found I really enjoyed opening up that world of literature and writing to students who were eager to learn.

7. If you could perform with a famous musician, dead or alive, who would it be?
That’s also a hard question. You’re killing me! Off the top of my head, I’d have to say Frank Zappa. His music is complex and demanding and yet irreverent. It would be a challenge to play with him, that’s for sure, but I know I’d learn a lot.

8. If you could be a High 5 Casino game character who would you like to be? Why?
I’d be the drummer from the game “Jazz”…because it’s actually me, literally! Ha! I was asked to play for the video shoot. Okay, that’s cheating. Let me pick for real. It’d be fun to be the Mowgli character in Tales of the Jungle. Living in the jungle wearing nothing but a loin cloth, hanging with animal friends and swinging from vines in the trees? That sounds idyllic to me.

Congratulations Spooky Story Contest Winners!


“I looked out the window and realized I wasn’t alone. I knew I had to escape the hordes of zombies headed my way. I decided to____”

Imagine yourself in this situation, what would you see; what would you do; and where would you go? We asked our fans to tell us and finish our spooky zombie story for a chance to win 200,000 free coins! We received thousands of scary story entries but only 100 made it our alive. Check out nine of the winning stories from H5C’ Spooky Story Contest winners – we really wish we can share them all with you:

Jane A. – Queens, NY
“… I decided to blend in with the crowd, so I grabbed a white bed sheet, wrapped it around me and with my black eyebrow pencil and red lipstick made some markings. I had to think quickly before they got me and I had to blend in so that they thought I was one of them. As they approached I played dead by lying still in a corner. They came and stood in front of me, I held my breath and they thought I was dead, touched me and finally they all gave the thumbs up sign. They passed on and it was over. Phew!!!”

John B. – Green Bay, WI
“… I decided to climb out of the upstairs window onto the roof of the garage. Once on the roof I was able to jump into my neighbor’s yard. Dang it! I twisted my ankle, now what was I going to do. I saw the neighbor’s dog house and moved as quietly and quickly as I could toward it. Constantly checking over my shoulder to make sure that I wasn’t being seen, I finally made it to the dog house and climbed in. I could hear them moving closer. They were almost on top of me; I was afraid to move or even breathe.

Ruth S. – Dagsboro, DE
“… I decided to jump in my car and head to High 5 Casino where I had friends to help overcome the Zombies. When I reached High 5 all the Zombie fighter friends were waiting for me. They all came back to my home and together we fought the Zombies and made my home safe for a while. I was now able to relax and play at High 5 Casino once again.”

Bobbie M. – Penticton, British Columbia – Canada
“… I decided to convince them I am one of them, that was the only way. I smeared the blood from the hamburger on my face, shredded my clothes, rubbed dirt from my potted plant all over my face and clothes. I looked awful in the mirror but will it convince THEM? I practiced the stumble walk that appears they all do. Would it work, would it work? I blanked my expression and stumbled in their midst…”

Donna W. – Waterford, MI
“… I decided to start my GLORIOUS GETAWAY. I NEED A HERO to ESCAPE, RESET and RECHARGE out of this ZOMBIE ZONE. Logging onto H5C, I called out for TALL, RICH & HANDSOME heroes: ROCKET MAN, CYRANO, PRINCE OF LIGHTNING, FIGARO and ROYAL LION for LOVE and VALOR. The BIG CHASE began, we had to REV IT UP to get this NIGHT OF MYSTERY to end. A very loud BAH HUMBUG and THE VANISHING ACT began. The hordes of zombies were leaving!!! How totally PURRFECT. Once again I am a PRINCESS OF PARADISE, LOVE U my H5C Heroes.”

Mary M. – Las Vegas, NV
“… I decided to cash out my machine and leave the casino, I realized everyone around me were zombies! I was surrounded, I managed to slip through and make it out the front door. I couldn’t believe I made it. I was so terrified I stopped for a minute to catch my breath, when I looked up the last thing I saw was a wall of zombies with the casino wall at my back. I had nowhere to go. I WAS DOOMED!”

James K. – Moline, IL
“… I decided to do what all zombie hunters do. I remained calm and killed zombies. I killed them all and went back to play H5C. As I was playing I felt a cold hand on my shoulder. When I turned around I was bitten by a zombie that I had not seen. I passed out and when I awoke I realized I was just dreaming. I realized I had fallen asleep playing Zombie Zone at H5C. It all seemed so real, but I felt relieved and I went into the kitchen for a soda. When I turned on the light I saw muddy footprints. My God! Was it real? AAGGHHHH”

Ken A. – Edomontor, Alberta – Canada
“… I decided to take a minute to think about my predicament. I realized that zombies always look hungry. Maybe they are, and maybe they only eat people because we’re so easy to catch. I ran to the pantry to see what else I could use. I found a huge bag of those giant marshmallows, and wondered if the zombies would like them. I ran to the back door with the bag, ripped it open and started pitching those marshmallows like this was the 7th game in the World Series. I was right! The zombies loved them! I was free!”

Kim L. – Hamlet IN
“… I decided to run till my legs could not run any longer, figuring it was the end for me. Then out of nowhere I see a figure flying above in the distance. Bad enough I am about to be devoured by the zombies, but also be attacked from this unknown creature. Cowering as I was about to die, I felt strong warm arms around my waist. As afraid as I was to look, my eyes looked into my hero and the love of my life…ROCKET MAN”
