Slot Fundamentals: Hi-Lo Stacks Bonus

Slot-Fundamental_Hi_Lo_Stack
Slot Fundamentals is a column we run occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with Hi-Lo Stacks Bonuses, an innovative new feature.

Lots of slot games have bonus rounds, but if you want unique, exciting free games then you have to spin High 5 Games slots. We’ve put plenty of twists on the bonus round already – like Collection Bonuses, Enduring Bonuses, and Bonus Select – and now we’ve come up with another fun feature: Hi-Lo Stacks Bonuses!

When you trigger the free games in a Hi-Lo Stacks Bonus game, before you start spinning you blindly pick one major symbol and one minor symbol to be Super Stacked for the duration of the bonus round. These Super Stacked symbols increase the potential for huge blowout wins with stunning animated graphics. Check out Hi-Lo Stacks Bonuses in High 5 Casino games like Guitar Kings, Rev It Up, and Parfum Adore.

We hope you found that helpful, and that you land some major jackpots with Hi-Lo Stacks Bonuses! What’s your favorite bonus feature? What would you us to explain in the future?

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!

GK_VS_TP
Guitar Kings vs. The Palladium

Would you rather rock out with the Guitar Kings or party at The Palladium?

This one definitely depends on your idea of a good time. I’ve never been much of a club guy, probably because I’m neither rich nor a good dancer. You also can’t really talk at clubs, so no one hears my hilarious jokes, which is a total bummer. Concerts are more my scene. You can’t really talk at concerts either, but that’s alright because hopefully there’s an awesome act on stage that demands your full attention. Plus, the best concerts are the cheapest ones, and everyone there’s a bad dancer, so I don’t stand out. You’re much more likely to catch me rocking out with the Guitar Kings, beer in hand, than partying at The Palladium with a $2,000 bottle of vodka.

EDGE: Guitar Kings

Double-Feature-VS_Cabaret-Nights
Double Feature vs. Cabaret Nights

Would you rather catch a Double Feature or hang out at Cabaret Nights?

We’re all about having a good time in this edition of High 5 Fight Club. You can’t really go wrong with either option, but I’d rather catch a Double Feature. That way I’m getting like three or four hours of entertainment without having to leave my (super-nice, imaginary) car, which would naturally be filled with delicious snacks and beverages. Chilling at Cabaret Nights would be fun, but that would require leaving my car, walking, talking to waitresses, etc. Just leave me alone in my ride with a few movies and I’m set.

Valentine’s Day at High 5 Casino

LobbyH5C2.2_Wall_Post_ValentinesAtH5c
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, which means different things for different people. If you’ve got a special someone, the only way they’ll know you love them is through consumer goods purchased on a corporate holiday, so be sure to splurge on the $82 dollar quintuple-tiered box of chocolates, four dozen red roses, and an $11 Hallmark card with live doves that fly out when your partner opens it. If you’re flying solo this V-Day, you should still snag that $82 dollar quintuple-tiered box of chocolates, because it’s good to love yourself. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we got to thinking about which High 5 Casino characters should couple up:

A Night of Mystery and Foxy Dynamite

The detective from A Night of Mystery and Foxy D may be operating in different time periods, but they still have a good deal in common. Most importantly, they’re both excellent detectives, so if they met they’d have a lot to chat about. Plus, both sides would have to be faithful, because you can’t get anything by either one of these people.

Wellspring and Valkyrie Queen

It’s probably hard for the Valkyrie Queen to find someone who sticks around, what with her being an immortal goddess and all. Which is why the explorer from Wellspring is perfect for her – he’d just keep refueling at the Fountain of Youth, and the pair could go out until he got so sick of her he chose to die.

When he’s not slicing into rich women who want smaller noses, Dr. Amante likes the finer things in life. The vacationing woman from Aegean Sunset certainly likes the finer things in life, too. They’d probably get together after she comes in for a totally unnecessary consultation.

Jaguar Princess and Shadow of the Panther

These two weirdos deserve each other. I imagine neither one is much of a talker, but if they could get past the awkwardness of the first few dates they’d make a perfect pair.

Royal Lion and Sapphire Tiger

Actually, these two already coupled up: where do you think Liger Loot came from?

Whether you’re single or taken, be sure to spin at High 5 Casino this weekend!

Game Spotlight: Romeo & Juliet

h5c_romeo_juliet_glass_1200_banner
Here at High 5 Games, we take inspiration from all different types of sources when coming up with new ideas for premium slots, which is why we have such a wonderfully diverse collection of titles. That being said, some sources are better than others, and no source is better than William Shakespeare, the greatest writer in English of all time. Romeo & Juliet premieres today as the 128th game at High 5 Casino!

It’s the most classic love story ever told – and now, there’s a slot that lets the tale of these star-crossed lovers unfold before your eyes. In Romeo & Juliet, you’ll feel like you’re part of the drama as you witness the emotions of the two lovebirds on screen while experiencing the thrill of trying to capture your own prize.

Romeo & Juliet features Timeless Romance Awards during bonus rounds. In order to score free games, you’ll need to land three bonus symbols. But the fun hardly stops there! In the bonus round, you can win up to two free spins on EACH spin if you land a ‘+1 Free Games!’ symbol. A single bonus round can award up to 100 free spins!

If you advanced Guitar Kings to game level 100 by February 11th at 11:59 pm EST, then you’ll receive Romeo & Juliet unlocked!

What do you think of Romeo & Juliet? What type of slots would you like to see High 5 Games make in the future?

Player Spotlight

h5c_player_spotlight_1200
High 5 Blog’s newest column features interviews with High 5 Casino players. The inaugural edition spotlights loyal, longtime High 5-er Ellie Morin.

1. How did you hear about High 5 Casino?
I played High 5 Games’ Da Vinci Diamonds slot at DoubleDown, and loved it so much I researched who the maker of the game was. I saw your ad on the sidebar of Facebook one day, clicked on it, and have been an avid fan ever since. I began playing the day you opened your doors.

2. What’s your go-to game on H5C?
Magic Orchid is my go-to because it’s a game that doesn’t have a lot of empty spins and I can usually win enough to get me back in the game.

3. What’s your favorite H5C game of all time?
I have to say Gypsy. I love the theme, the music, and the colors. It’s upbeat, and the animation of the wagon flying across the screen after a big win gets my heart pumping!

4. What are your favorite game features?
You can win a lot during free games so I love features like the Collection Bonus and the Enduring Bonus.

5. If you could hang out with any character from one of our games, who would it be?
Gypsy. I’d ask her to read my beads! I’d also want her to take me for a ride in that wild wagon of hers!

6. If you could be a High 5 Casino character, who would you like to be?
I’d like to be the main character in the new Thunder Road game. I think riding a motorcycle at my age would be a hoot.

7. If you could couple up two characters from our games, who would you marry off?
I would introduce The Cat Prince to The Empress Josephine. They’d be perfect together.

8. Which High 5 Casino game do you feel the luckiest with?
Good question – my luckiest game is Dr. Amante. He knows what it takes to make me happy.

9. Which H5C game has the best bonus in your opinion?
Thunder Road has been very good to me. The multiple bonus options pay well.

10. Which High 5 Casino game do you think has the best sound package?
I love the sound in Gypsy because the music builds up with each spin, and it’s great when the win comes and the wagon shows up. I also love the music in The Charleston because it’s an original score and it’s very upbeat.

Game Spotlight: Guitar Kings

guitar-king_1200x1200_glass_ios
They are masters of their instruments, charismatic musicians who draw thousands into stadiums to hear them play. They travel around the world on the strength of their tunes, bringing people to their feet wherever they go. Women want them and men want to be them. Their musical styles may be different, but they all undoubtedly rock. Who are they? They’re the Guitar Kings!

Guitar Kings arrives as the 127th game available to be unlocked at High 5 Casino. Having played alto saxophone in high school jazz band, I feel a certain affinity to the virtuosos who comprise the Guitar Kings; if there are any differences between playing big band tunes to a few hundred bored parents and electrifying an entire arena with original rock and roll jams, I’ve yet to find them. Super Stacks and a Hi-Lo Stacks Bonus help you cash in while you’re rocking out.

Which real-life musicians would be your Guitar Kings? If I had to narrow it down, mine would probably be Chad Kroeger from Nickelback, Mark Tremonti from Creed, Buckethead during his Guns N’ Roses days, and Ryan Peake, also from Nickelback.

Head to High 5 Casino now to participate in the Guitar Kings Challenge! If you unlock Guitar Kings and reach game level 100 by February 11th at 11:59 pm EST, you’ll receive Romeo & Juliet, our next game, unlocked by 5:00 pm EST on February 12th.

What do you think of Guitar Kings? What type of slots would you like to see High 5 Games make in the future?

What are you waiting for? Unlock Guitar Kings and get to spinning at High 5 Casino.

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.

Hello there High 5-ers! Did you all survive the storm? We’re just digging out here at High 5 Games‘ New York office. Today I’m going to go over the different account types you can have at High 5 Casino, and where you can use them.

1. Facebook account

Most of you probably know that you can play High 5 Casino on Facebook, and all your progress is connected to your Facebook account. What you might not know is that you can use your Facebook account to log-in to our mobile apps on iOS and Android. You can also use your Facebook account to play our games through High5Casino.net.

2. PlayReal account

If you don’t have a Facebook account, or would rather not use your Facebook information, you can create a PlayReal account using your email address. You can use your PlayReal account to log-in at High5Casino.net and on iOS and Android.

3. Guest account

H5C guest accounts are only available on iOS and Android. You create a guest account by hitting ‘Play Now’ when you open the mobile app, instead of logging in. Guest accounts do not retain progress after your session is done, so we definitely recommend spinning with a Facebook or PlayReal account so you can save your progress.

Alright, that’s it for me and our account types. Please let me know in the comments of this post if you have any burning questions you’d like me to address in the future. However you log-in, thanks for playing High 5 Casino! Good luck and happy spinning!
