Employee of the Month

Here at High 5 Games, we really like to reward our employees for good work. When it comes time to name the employee of the month, we don’t simply throw a name up on a plaque, or send out an email. Instead, we bring out the big guns:

Pretty cool, huh? Johan – who, despite his impressive acting skills, is really a High 5-er, like nearly everyone in the video – gets congratulated on his good work by MISS UNIVERSE 2012 Olivia Culpo, MISS USA 2013 Erin Brady, the one-and-only Dangerous Beauty, and The Mighty Atlas. Talk about an incentive to work hard, right?

Slot Fundamentals: Split Symbols

Slot-Fundamental_SplitSymbols
Slot Fundamentals is a column we run occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with Split Symbols, a popular feature that can be found in many of our games.

In a three by five reel slot game, one would assume that there can be no larger than a five-symbol win on the reels at any given time. One might also take far too long to figure out the basic math involved in the preceding sentence, but that is neither here nor there. High 5 Games, never content to simply churn out run-of-the-mill content, disproves that assumption with its innovative feature Split Symbols. But how exactly do Split Symbols work?

Split Symbols give players the chance to get up to 10 symbols (as opposed to five) on any given line, because any one spot can contain two symbols. This means that you can hit it twice as big in a Split Symbols game as in a regular game! Look for Split Symbols in High 5 Casino games like Desert Rose, Gypsy, and Shadow of the Panther and Shake the Sky games like Cirque Chinois, Fortune Cat Fever, and Split Dragon.

We hope you found that helpful! Which slot fundamental would you like to see us explain in the future?

Game Spotlight: Hail King of Fortune

Hail-King-of-Fortune_Glass_Ad
Today’s post comes from High 5 Blog correspondent Ali.

Shake the Sky Casino is excited to add Hail King of Fortune to its collection of 30+ premium slot games!

Pay your respects to Cai Shen, the god of prosperity, and he may bless you with wealth beyond your wildest imagination in Hail King of Fortune. The Bonus Select with Multipliers help you win big as you attempt to get fortune on your side.

Players will recognize many of the auspicious symbols in Hail King of Fortune from other traditionally-themed games at Shake the Sky. A symbol that may be new to some players is the old man character known as Sau, the Chinese god of longevity. He is a symbol of the easy life, and is often depicted with a gourd attached to the end of his staff. The gourd is a common symbol of good luck and immortality, and is believed to hold the nectar of life. Sau is also known to hold a peach, the divine fruit of the gods, and a symbol of longevity believed to bring a long and prosperous life.

Hail King of Fortune, like Emperor’s Delight, is part of H5G’s Imperial Collection. More games from this exciting collection will be available to STS players in the future.
