Game Preview: Zhi Nu

STS_ZhiNu_1200x1200
Take a sneak peek at Zhi Nu, which premieres later this week as the 41st slot at Shake the Sky Casino!

Once upon a time, a humble cow herder named Niu Lang spotted Zhi Nu, the daughter of a goddess, as she was washing herself by a lake. The pair fell in love, but when Zhi Nu’s mother found out she banished her daughter back to the heavens, separating them forever. Once a year, the magpies of the world take pity on the two lovers, and form a bridge in the stars so they can be reunited for one special night. Experience this famous Chinese tale in Zhi Nu, part of the Romance Series from High 5 Games.

Zhi Nu has exciting gameplay to back up its beautiful theme and art design. Super Stacks and an Enduring Bonus help you score amazing jackpots as you witness a tale of love and loss.

High 5 Fight Club

We often ask our players over on the High 5 Casino fan page to comment on different game vs. game matchups. Today I’ll be offering my thoughts on two showdowns between four different High 5 Casino slots; take the polls below and let us know what you think!

Retropolis_VS_Golden-Odysseypsd
Retropolis vs. Golden Odyssey

Would you rather travel to the future in Retropolis or to the past in Golden Odyssey?

I love history, especially anything involving the ancient Greeks, so I initially thought I’d rather travel back in time and embark on a Golden Odyssey. But then I thought about it some more, and remembered that – in addition to being a history buff – I’m a lazy bum. And an impatient one, at that. I’m unfortunately not cut out for a long aquatic voyage; even if I got to see some crazy things occasionally, there’d still be long periods of intense boredom. If I nearly lose my mind on a fifteen-minute subway ride, there’s no way I’m surviving for months on the open seas. The lazy, impatient bum in me is much better suited to Retropolis and the future, where I can jetpack around from place to place as a robot cleans my room.

EDGE: Retropolis

Dangerous-Beauty-vs-Valkyrie-Queen
Dangerous Beauty vs. Valkyrie Queen

Who would win in a fight between the Dangerous Beauty and the Valkyrie Queen?

This is a battle between two seriously dangerous ladies who are both trained in hand-to-hand combat, so you know you’d be in for a treat if they went head to head. I think it would be extremely close, but I’m going with Dangerous Beauty just based on the weapon she’s bringing to the table. I think she’d be able to keep the Valkyrie Queen and her hammer at bay with her sword, but if the VQ got in close, then it’d be a totally different story…

EDGE: Dangerous Beauty

Game Spotlight: Tumbling Together

TumblingTogether_Glass_2Buttons
Summer is winding to a close here in New York City, but Shake the Sky Casino isn’t ready to turn the page to fall just yet. Relive the glory days of summer in Tumbling Together, the 40th premium slot at Shake the Sky!

It’s a hot summer day; what better way to spend it than rafting down a beautiful river with four of your zaniest friends? In Tumbling Together, you can do just that! Hop in a barrel and float along with a panda, fish, rooster, and pig. Get ready for a big drop – there’s a waterfall just up ahead! If you’re in the mood for summer fun, there’s no better game to play than Tumbling Together!

True to its name, Tumbling Together features Tumbling Reels. This means winning symbols disappear after being recorded, which causes symbols from higher up on the reels to fall down into their place. This creates brand new possibilities for big wins without risking any additional credits, and goes on until no new ways to win are created by the new combination of symbols. The possibility for up to 60 free games in the bonus round means at any given moment you could be in for some serious jackpots.

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

High 5 Casino Turns Two

RumCityRetropolis_Unlocked_Mobile_1200x1200
Time really does fly when you’re having fun: this week marks the two-year anniversary of the launch of High 5 Casino! We here at High 5 Games can’t believe how much our app has grown in a mere 24 months. Since its September 2012 debut, H5C has grown to include 100+ premium slots, plus mobile versions and video poker; it’s also racked up nearly eight million downloads. None of this would have been possible without our loyal players, so a heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you! We hope you enjoyed the first two years, and we know the next two will be even better!

To celebrate High 5 Casino’s two-year anniversary, we’re releasing two amazing games today! The future is even wilder than you imagined in Retropolis, which is unlocked for all players! Fire up your jetpack or hop in a flying car and take a trip around Retropolis, a colony established on the moon in the year 2420. You’ll be amazed by the technological wonders you see and the robots you encounter. Who needs to return to Earth when Retropolis lets you score big wins with Stacked Wilds and Scatter Bucks?

Faerie Maiden is unlocked for our Club 150 players and available to unlock for everyone else! He is a warrior prince, strong and brave and just. She is the Faerie Maiden, beautiful and kind and powerful. Although she normally avoids the affairs of mortals, she is drawn to him. One day, when he is alone, she can no longer conceal herself, or her feelings. He is shocked, but immediately smitten by her. You’ll enjoy this tale of fantasy and romance while scoring major jackpots with Stacked Symbols and Free Games.
