Game Spotlight: The Green Machine Global

h5c_green_machine_glass_1200_apple
It’s pure and simple, fast and fun. Choose your risk and your reward in The Green Machine Global, which debuts today as the 125th slot at High 5 Casino! The Green Machine Global has different gameplay mechanics than the other slots at H5C, so we asked game designer Brent to fill us in on the details:

“What you see is what you get in The Green Machine Global. Instead of paylines or ways, you can choose to bet on up to five different colors, all of which have different values – some will show up often with small wins, while others will show up less often but yield larger payouts. If one of the colors you bet on lands anywhere on the reels, you win. It’s that simple! You can play it safe, go for big jackpots, or do both, so there’s lots of flexibility for players. This is the first game that I worked on to debut at High 5 Casino, so I hope it does well and players enjoy it!”

The Green Machine Global is inspired by The Green Machine, which is one of the most popular land-based slot games of all time. We hope H5C players love our version as much as the original!

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

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!

TOTJ_VS_SOTP
Tales of the Jungle vs. Shadow of the Panther

Who’d win in a fight between the protagonist from Shadow of the Panther and the adventurer from Tales of the Jungle?

Sure, the adventurer from Tales of the Jungle has a spear, and he’s probably a decade younger than the protagonist from Shadow of the Panther. On the surface he may be the favorite in this fight, but I’d put my money on the odd fellow from Shadow of the Panther. Here’s a guy who’s spent his entire life in the jungle, living like an animal and only occasionally emerging from the shadows. He must be incredibly tough – just look at the scars on his face – but more importantly he’s completely insane, which is why he’d win this fight hands down.

EDGE: Shadow of the Panther

MT_vs_FD
Mystery Train vs. Foxy Dynamite

Would Foxy Dynamite be able to solve the riddle of the disappearing passengers on the Mystery Train?

My faith in Foxy Dynamite is boundless. If she was called in to figure out why passengers are disappearing from the Mystery Train, she’d figure it out quickly while looking fabulous. All she would have to do is interrogate everyone on the train – no one is capable of lying to Foxy when she’s grilling them. The bad guy would be disposed of, and then the party would begin!

EDGE: Foxy Dynamite

It’s time to announce the correct answer to the inaugural round of Slot Trivia! The largest jackpot payout ever in an online slot machine game is € 17,861,813, which is equivalent to $ 22,974,400. It was won by an anonymous player in Finland on Paf.com, who scored that insane jackpot off a mere € 0.25 bet on the Mega Fortune game. Congratulations to Barbara G., who did some internet sleuthing and came up with the correct answer. Barbara will receive a water bottle and t-shirt from High 5 Games.

Game Spotlight: The Newsmen

newmen_glass_no-logos
The Newsmen is the 124th game to release at High 5 Casino! Live footage for this game was filmed in High 5 Games‘ in-office studios using real actors and rad 70s-style costumes. Mario, the art director of H5G’s 50 West studio, provided some insight into the background of this far-out new game:

Action News Channel 5 is New York City’s top-rated newscast in the 1970s, but when an internal drug ring threatens to bring the news media giant down, NYC’s top undercover detectives pose as newsmen to bring the drug dealers to justice. It sounds like an ideal plan — the only problem is, while they’re truly New York’s finest cops, they’re also the worst newscasters in the world!

Get to know each of The Newsmen below, and find out more about their double lives — newscasters by day, crime fighters by night!

High 5 Games Help Desk

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.

Happy New Year, High 5-ers! I hope you all had a wonderful 2014 and are gearing up for an even better 2015! Here at the New York office of High 5 Games, we’re starting the year off with some snow this morning. If you want to stay out of the cold by playing some High 5 Casino, I’ve got you covered! Today, I’m going to answer a few of the questions you’ve asked over the past few weeks.

1. What’s the best browser for H5C?

High 5 Casino is optimized for Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox. If you’re having issues loading our games on either of those browsers, double check that you have the latest version. You can find information about updating Chrome here and Firefox here.

2. What should I do if I have a question about a payout?

We test our games constantly to ensure that players are always paid out fully for their wins, but if you think you’ve been short-changed we’re happy to look into it. If that’s the case, take a screenshot of your issue and email us at support@h5g.com.

3. How can I collect more credits?

The best way to collect credits is to come back to High 5 Casino every four hours. You should also check H5C’s Facebook fan page daily, and watch your email for the latest promotions from email@news-h5g.com.

Let me know if you’re curious about anything else and I’ll do my best to address it next time. In the meantime, happy spinning and good luck!

Happy New Year from High 5 Casino

h5c_happy_new_year_2015_2
Happy New Year, High 5-ers! We here at High 5 Games wish you all a happy and healthy 2015. Each new year brings new resolutions, so we got to thinking about New Year Resolutions for a few of our favorite characters from High 5 Casino:

The host from The Big Show should pledge to update his style. The first thing that has to go is that haircut; any alternative style that doesn’t require $20 dollars worth of gel every morning would probably be an improvement.

The crew at The Palladium needs to take the partying down a notch. Sure, they work at a night club, so it’s easy to understand the temptation to go wild every night. But still, maybe order a water every once in a while, guys.

Dangerous Beauty

Dangerous Beauty should strive to be nicer in 2015. People are going to be annoying sometimes, but it’s very impolite to go around severing limbs because someone cut you in line at the supermarket or some goof is talking in a movie theater. Use your words, DB.

Madame Monarch

This one’s obvious: MM needs more sun, pronto.

Shadow of the Panther

Rumor has it the dude from Shadow of the Panther has been stuffing his face while prowling around the jungle recently. This year he should resolve to eat more salad, and maybe skip dessert once in a blue moon.

Ring in the New Year with big wins at High 5 Casino.
