High 5 Fight Club: Halloween Edition

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!

LO_VS_DR
The Lovely Outlaws vs. Daughters of the Regiment

Who would make better zombie hunters: The Lovely Outlaws or the Daughters of the Regiment?

In the spirit of Halloween, which is only a week away, we’ll go through some zombie-related questions today. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m sure either one of these groups of ladies would make excellent zombie hunters. After all, the Daughters of the Regiment fought for America during the country’s infancy, and The Lovely Outlaws were some of the most dangerous criminals in the Wild West. Either group would do in a pinch if you woke up one day, looked outside your window, and realized the end of the world had begun. But if I had the luxury of choice, I’d go with The Lovely Outlaws, who seem meaner, and have better weapons. It’s a lot easier to take down a zombie from range than it is from up close, I’d imagine.

EDGE: The Lovely Outlaws

Bollywood Bride vs. Who’s My Candy Prince?

Who would make more dangerous zombies: the characters from Bollywood Bride or those from Who’s My Candy Prince?

I can’t imagine the characters from Who’s My Candy Prince? ever getting that mad or being that dangerous, even if they were zombies. The undead versions of these happy, dessert-loving folks would probably not find human flesh that appealing compared to sweets, so they’d end up harmlessly shuffling around candy stores. On the other hand, imagine how upset the Bollywood Bride and her mother would be if they were dragged into the zombie apocalypse on what was supposed to be a day of celebration. The two of them would go all-out on the hunt for brains after that, making them way more dangerous.

EDGE: Bollywood Bride

Game Spotlight: The Haunted Horseman

Haunted-Horseman_Unlocked_AppLogos_1200x1200
Just in time for Halloween, The Haunted Horseman is now UNLOCKED for all players at High 5 Casino!

Strange things have been happening in Sleepy Hollow. Random citizens of this small town have been disappearing, and those brave enough to venture out at night report seeing a strange apparition: a headless man atop a horse. You have been called here to stop the crimes and solve the mystery. Do you have what it takes to defeat The Haunted Horseman?

The Haunted Horseman has awesome gameplay to go along with its scary art design and exciting music. Tumbling Reels and Mystery Bucks help you score big in Sleepy Hollow, even if you’re too spooked to battle The Haunted Horseman (I certainly would be).

What do you think of The Haunted Horseman? What type of slots would you like to see High 5 Games make in the future?

Game Preview: Happy Two-Gether

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

This week’s Shake the Sky Casino release is Happy Two-Gether! This is the 44th title to release on STS and features Tumbling Reels and Split Symbols with Tumble Double.

Happy Two-Gether reminds us that life is simply better with a partner! Just think of all the things you can’t do on your own – three-legged races, leap frog, synchronized swimming, riding a bicycle built for two, eating a steak for two on a double date… you get the idea. When you have someone to share your experiences with, it just makes them that much more special. Take a trip to a fun-filled forest where everyone’s paired up in Happy Two-Gether! Surrounded by bird, fox, and rabbit couples, and in the midst of glorious nature, you can’t help but have a great time!

Happy Two-Gether features Tumbling Reels, which give you even more chances to win because after a winning line is recorded, symbols from higher lines tumble into their place, creating brand new possibilities for big scores. And with Split Symbols, any one spot can contain two symbols, which means Split Symbols effectively double the amount you can win!

Behind the Scenes at High 5: Coffee to Die For by Black Widow

Check out the second edition of ‘Behind the Scenes at High 5,’ our new video series!

People all around the world drink coffee to get their days going, and it’s no different at the High 5 Games office. Well, maybe it’s a little different: other offices don’t have the nefarious Black Widow lurking around their kitchens. Find out what happens when the title character from the classic H5G slot tries to give her coworker some killer coffee…

I’ve met some baristas with bad attitudes in my day, but they typically stop at a (non-lethal) death stare when I order an extra-large decaf cappuccino with extra whipped cream half soy milk and half half-and-half shaken not stirred with a double shot of espresso and a little honey and then change my mind once they’ve made the drink and request a glass of room temperature water instead. Black Widow goes the extra psychotic mile, and offers poison with a smile on her face. Luckily, the targeted High 5-er was smart enough to turn her down…

Stay tuned, because the next edition of ‘Behind the Scenes at High 5,’ featuring Foxy Dynamite, will debut at High 5 Blog in the near future!

In the meantime, check out more High 5 Games video content on YouTube, and play High 5 Casino on Facebook, iOS, and Android.

Game Spotlight: The Big Show

TheBigShow_1200x1200_Glass1
This is the moment you’ve been waiting for. You’ve worked hard – assembling a top-notch band, writing beautiful music, practicing and performing constantly – and now you’ve made it onto The Big Show, a television program where new musical stars are discovered. You stand on stage as the lights dim and the curtains part; now you’ll get to see if you’re ready for the spotlight.

The Big Show is now available to unlock at High 5 Casino! The music in this game is excellent, and the graphics and animations will make you feel like you’re right on set. Fans of The Voice or – going back a little further – The Ed Sullivan Show will definitely enjoy H5C’s 109th slot. It’s actually even better than The Voice, because The Big Show’s host looks like Vanilla Ice in a wig, plus you don’t have to listen to the dude from the Pizza Hut commercials talk. Triple Symbols and Free Games with a Multiplier Collection Feature let you score major jackpots even if it turns out you have no stage presence or the world isn’t ready for your musical style. Between The Big Show, The Palladium, Club Caliente, and Jazz, High 5 Casino has plenty of awesome slots for music lovers!

Behind the Scenes at High 5: The Audition of a Lifetime by Ancient Arcadia

Check out the first edition of ‘Behind the Scenes at High 5,’ our new video series!

Endless riches and beauty abound in Ancient Arcadia, but apparently musical talent does not. When a character from the classic slot shows up at the High 5 Games office equipped with a pan flute and a dream, creative sound director Aldo is kind enough to hear him out…

I doubt he got a call back to join H5G’s top-notch sound department. However, sources suggest the character from Ancient Arcadia eventually found a way to turn around his floundering music career and start the hit band Nickelback, so everything worked out in the end.

Stay tuned, because the next edition of ‘Behind the Scenes at High 5,’ featuring Black Widow, will debut at High 5 Blog in the near future!

In the meantime, check out more High 5 Games video content on YouTube, and play Ancient Arcadia at High 5 Casino on Facebook, iOS, and Android.

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!

WM_vs_CK
Woolly Mammoth vs. Cave King

Who would win in a fight between a Woolly Mammoth and the Cave King?

The Cave King clearly isn’t a slouch; after all, he has managed to become the ruler of his slot universe, which is no easy task. But look at him, covered in jewels, flanked by the Cave Queen and a friendly dinosaur. The man’s become complacent, perhaps a little paunchy even. He doesn’t want to fight anymore, he just wants to enjoy the spoils of his position. Now check out Woolly Mammoth. Look at those tusks, and that fierce, hungry stare. Woolly Mammoth is ready to throw down, and I think he’d squash the Cave King and any primitive weapons he could muster.

EDGE: Woolly Mammoth

STS_Last-Master-vs-Dragon-Showdown
Last Master vs. Dragon Showdown

Who would win in a fight between the warriors from Dragon Showdown and the Last Master?

Hmm. If it was just the Last Master against any single fighter from Dragon Showdown, I think I’d have to go with the Last Master, seeing as how she’s the last remaining person who’s well-versed in one particularly deadly martial art. However, if she’s going up against the Dragon Showdown collective, I think I’d have to pick the side with the numbers advantage. Sure, no one dude from Dragon Showdown may be as talented as the Last Master, but if there’s like six of them and only one of her, they’ll eventually emerge victorious from battle.

EDGE: Dragon Showdown

Game Preview: Liang Zhu

STS_LiangZhu_1200x1200
Today’s post comes from High 5 Blog correspondent Ali.

Take a first look at Liang Zhu, which premieres soon as the 43rd slot at Shake the Sky Casino! Liang Zhu will be launching on Facebook, Shake the Sky Casino for iOS, and Shake the Sky Casino for Android.

Once upon a time, Zhu Yintai, a beautiful girl who dresses as a boy in order to attend school, falls in love with Liang Shanbo, a scholar. She eventually reveals her true identity to Liang, and he returns her love, but the pair is split up when Zhu must submit to a marriage her parents arranged. Liang dies, heartbroken, and Zhu follows shortly after, on the day she was supposed to be married. Both their spirits turn into butterflies, and they fly away, never to be separated again. Experience this famous Chinese tale in Liang Zhu, part of the Romance Series from High 5 Games.

This slot is filled with beautiful butterflies that make appearances throughout the base and bonus games to remind players of the everlasting love between Zhu Yintai and Liang Shanbo. The gameplay features Super Stacks and a Collection Bonus that lead to amazing wins!
