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.

Behind the Scenes: Zombie Zone

High 5 Games‘ employees are not only good at making fantastic slots; they are also good at acting like zombies! Last year on Halloween, we filmed all the scary scenes as you’ve seen in Zombie Zone – our most recent release of High 5 Casino – and that was also the day we had a Zombie attack here in our New York office! How did it happen? Check out our behind-the-scenes video below to unfold the dangers of the Zombie Zone:

These High 5 Zombies weren’t your average brain eating creeps: they were drinking water, eating turkey legs, and getting their hair done. They did escape the green screen studio and scared some of us in the office though and it was pretty scary! Check out these behind-the-scenes pictures to unveil more!

Zombie’s Make-up Table. Check out all the make-up and talent that went into transforming our High 5 Employees into High 5 Zombies!


A fashionable Zombie got her hair done to keep her looking smelly and scary, just how she likes it.


 A thirsty Zombie enjoyed some water after a rough afternoon of dragging herself around the office.


A hungry Zombie chewed on a bone, making sure he didn’t miss any of the juicy turkey meat. At least we hope it was turkey…


Oh No! Those three zombies were relentless! We’re glad to report that he did make it out alive with only a few scratches and a couple of laughs.


The Zombie fighters arrived on time to keep us all safe! Phew, that was a close one!

Slot Fundamentals: Super Select

Slot Fundamentals is a column we run occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with Super Select, an innovative relatively new feature.

Different from Bonus Select, one of our top-hit features, you can enjoy the Super Select feature without activating a free games round first. To activate the Super Select feature, you must trigger at least three full columns of matching Super Stack symbols on adjacent reels. Suddenly a Pick Bonus game is revealed behind the Super Stacked Columns. Your next step is to make a selection in the Pick Bonus game, and depending on which you choose, you may be awarded either a free games bonus or additional credits. With the Super Select feature, your chance to score additional wins with stunning animated graphics increases immensely.

We hope you found that helpful, and that you land some major jackpots with the Super Select feature! Make sure to check out Super Select in High 5 Casino’s popular games, Bombshell Beauties and Rum City.
