H5C_Gangster_Cat_Fortune_Cat_Unlocked__1200x1200_banner2

Attention all cat lovers! It’s a very feline week at High 5 Casino. Two new cat-themed titles have released unlocked! Think of these games as an early holiday gift from us – a couple new ways to unwind when you’re done braving the crowds and shopping for presents.

Cat Gangster premieres this week as the 118th game at High 5 Casino. It’s often said that the battle between cops and criminals is a cat-and-mouse game, and in Cat Gangster that idiom comes to life! Come along on a wild, stylized ride to a big city where the animals don’t just talk – they drink, fight, and connive! Will the eponymous feline ne’er-do-well of this game continue to live large with his illicit funds and beautiful girlfriend, or will he get taken down by a rat cop or a rival gorilla thug? Play Cat Gangster today and find out! Cat Gangster features 576 ways to win and Bonus Select, which leads to criminally large wins.

Shake the Sky fan-favorite Fortune Cat Fever also launches unlocked at High 5 Casino. Fortune Cat Fever originally launched on Shake the Sky in May, and the game is now bringing its good luck to players at H5C! The fortune cat is a common auspicious symbol that makes a beckoning motion with its paw and is meant to bring good fortune to its owner. Fortune Cat Fever features Split Symbols for double the wins, and a free games bonus.

Bring home the bacon with Cat Gangster and Fortune Cat Fever at High 5 Casino!

Slot Fundamentals: ReSpin on Win

Slot_Fundamentals_ReSpin_on_WIN
Slot Fundamentals is a column we run occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with ReSpin on Win, a popular feature that can be found in some of our newer games.

High 5 Games has been creating the most innovative slot games around for going on two decades now. We want to give our players the best experience possible, which is why our game design team is always tinkering with new features to keep our latest releases fresh. One such feature that only recently saw the light of day is ReSpin on Win, which somehow manages to make winning combinations even more exciting. But how exactly does it work?

It’s pretty simple, actually. With ReSpin on Win, every wild or major line win awards a number of respins – meaning you get additional spins when you win. The rich get richer in these games, so to speak; every wild or major line win leads to free spins and (hopefully) even bigger jackpots. Look for ReSpin on Win in High 5 Casino games like Celtic Courage and Shake the Sky games like White Lion and Talon and Dove.

We hope you found that helpful, and that you score some huge wins on slots with ReSpin on Win! What’s the most respins you’ve ever been awarded in a game like this? Which slot fundamental would you like to see us explain in the future?

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.

Hey High 5-ers! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I sure did — I’m still living off leftovers. This week I want to talk about three reasons why you should play video poker at High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky, if you don’t already.

1. Another four-hour bonus

You can collect a four-hour bonus in video poker, just like with our slots. Unlike our slots, though, you actually have to open a video poker game before you can collect a four-hour bonus for it. So when you start playing those video poker games, you start collecting extra bonuses!

2. Check out themes for your favorite slots

Another great thing about video poker is that you can unlock themes in the style of some of your favorite slots. Love Rum City? Check out our Rum City theme! Can’t get enough Triple Raven? Select our new Triple Raven theme!

3. Even more keyboard shortcuts

Video poker has never been easier than it is on High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky, which have a number of awesome keyboard shortcuts designed to save you time and improve your gameplay. You can use the space bar to deal, the arrow keys to adjust your bet, and the number keys to hold cards.

There are many more reasons to check out video poker, but I hope these three are enough for you to give it a try, if you haven’t already. Why do you guys like to play video poker? Is there anything you’d like me to cover next time? Let me know! Until then, good luck, and happy playing!

STS fan favorite Bollywood Bride premieres unlocked as the 116th top-notch title at High 5 Casino. It’s the wedding of the year, and you’re invited! Leave behind the humdrum of everyday life, and let the colors, sounds, and movements of eclectic India ignite your senses. The bride’s family has spared no expense. Delicious food, fine drinks, beautiful clothes, wonderful music – this party has it all. All you have to do is show up and have a good time. Super Stacks mean big and beautiful wins are always just around the corner, but the night really heats up when players are taken to Bollywood Bride’s bonus round. Even the disapproving mother from the base game starts to loosen up and have a little fun in the free games. The Collection Bonus lets players collect the wedding presents that appear on the reels in the bonus. If you collect all the gifts, you’ll be awarded extra free games!

What do you think of Magic Orchid and Bollywood Bride? What type of games would you like to see H5G make in the future?

Shake the Sky’s Out-of-Sight October Statistics

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

In October, there was an average of 10,974,747 spins per day at Shake the Sky Casino, which breaks down to roughly 457,281 spins per hour. Someone might go so far as to say that’s 7,621 spins per minute, and if that same someone really wanted to get into the nitty-gritty of it they might say that’s 127 spins per second… but really, who’s keeping track?

Check out more October stats from Shake the Sky Casino:

Game Spotlight: Night Jasmine at High 5 Casino

Night_Jasmine_1200_1200_UNLOCKED_banners
Shake the Sky fan favorite Night Jasmine is now UNLOCKED for all players as the 113th slot at High 5 Casino. Below, High 5 Blog correspondent Nikita breaks down all the reasons why you should check out Night Jasmine at H5C.

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. And that’s intentional: Night Jasmine is the first slot from High 5 Games 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 Gypsy will fall in love with Night Jasmine’s 243 ways to win and 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. Give it a spin at High 5 Casino and I promise you won’t be disappointed!

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.

Hey High 5-ers, hope you’re all having a great week! Today I’m going to take you through the different ways to customize your High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky video poker experience.

1. Pick your theme and paytable

You can customize your video poker games by changing your card themes and the look of your paytables. Video poker defaults to the H5C and STS theme, but you can switch up your experience by unlocking awesome alternatives like the Moonlit Mermaids and Rum City themes. I’m partial to the new Triple Raven theme myself.

2. Make your game full screen

Just like with our slots, you can play full-screen video poker by clicking on the arrows next to the home button in the top right-hand corner of the screen. Check out this option for a more immersive video poker experience.

3. Sort games your way

You also have the option to change how your video poker games are displayed. While in the lobby, click on the gear next to your player-card button and choose to sort your games alphabetically or by level.

I hope these tips help spice up your video poker life! Let me know if there’s anything in particular I should address next time. Until then, happy spinning and good luck!

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!

TR_vs_HH
The Haunted Horseman vs. Triple Raven

Would you rather be confronted by The Haunted Horseman or the bird from Triple Raven?

This is sort of a lose-lose situation. No one really wants to be chased around Sleepy Hollow by a headless man atop a horse, and slowly losing your mind as a raven repeats ‘Nevermore’ doesn’t sound much fun either. Ultimately, I think I’d take being haunted by the raven, for the simple fact that it’s better to be insane and alive then headless and dead.

EDGE: Triple Raven

STS_DA-vs-SD
Dragons of Avalon vs. Split Dragon

Who would win in a battle between the Dragons of Avalon and those from Split Dragon?

The Dragons of Avalon have two things going against them: they’re young, and they’re coddled. Look at that little guy, sitting on his mama’s shoulder, probably waiting on some dinner. He looks like he’s better at entertaining children than fighting, and I have to assume the rest of the Dragons of Avalon are the same. Maybe one day they’ll be tough, but the creatures from Split Dragon already look vicious. They are so dangerous they’re literally rending the sky with their mere presence. The Dragons of Avalon would be dead meat by the time these dudes got done with them.

EDGE: Split Dragon

Game Spotlight: Chang E

Chang-E_glass_1200x1200
Chang E – Reaching the Moon – released this week at Shake the Sky Casino. Chang E is a famous Chinese myth, and the latest game from the Romance Series to launch at STS.

The legend of Chang E goes a little something like this… Once upon a time, ten suns appeared in the sky, scorching everything in their path. Hou Yi quickly grabed his bow and destroyed all but one of the suns, which made him a hero and allowed him to marry the lovely Chang E. All was well until a thief broke into the couple’s home and attempted to steal a magical elixir. To prevent the potion from falling into the wrong hands, Chang E drank the elixir, which magically propeled her up to the moon, forever separating her from her love. On the moon, her lone companion is the rabbit who made the elixir.

Change E features Super Stacks with ReSpins and a Pick Bonus. If you land a ReSpin symbol, you’ll be taken to a special ReSpin screen to use your extra spins. You can continue to earn additional ReSpins while on the ReSpin screen, so the extra spins don’t have to stop!

Play Chang E at Shake the Sky Casino today!

Hey everyone! Are you ready to Fall back this weekend? For those of you who want to spend your extra hour on Sunday playing some H5C or STS, I’ve got some tips to speed up loading and avoid crashes on every platform.

1. Faster loading on a computer

High 5 Casino or Shake the Sky work best when you close all other programs and browser windows on your computer. You should also want to make sure that you only have one tab open at a time. We also recommend that you clear your browser’s cache regularly. For instructions on how to do that, you can consult this link.

2. Smoother play on iOS

For the smoothest play on H5C for iOS and STS for iOS, we recommend that you stay logged into a wireless network. We also suggest that you close all other open apps – to maximize the amount of available memory on your phone – by double-tapping the home button and then swiping the app screens up. You should also make sure that you’re playing the most recent build of our app, as it has the latest bug fixes and games. You can do this by going to the Updates tab in the App Store.

3. Lightning loading on Android

Like with iOS, we suggest that you stay logged into a wireless network while playing High 5 Casino for Android and Shake the Sky Casino for Android. We also recommend that you regularly clear your apps cached data (for specific instructions, click here). You should also close all other open programs (for specific instructions, refer to this link), and check regularly for app updates (you can click here for more specific instructions).

I hope these instructions help speed up your gameplay! They may also help your devices run faster in general, and save your battery life. Have a wonderful weekend, and happy spinning!
