Holidays at High 5 Casino

h5c_blog_Holiday_guests_1200x1200
We’re smack dab in the middle of the holiday season, folks. I hope you’re all further along in your holiday shopping than I am, which is to say I hope you’ve started your holiday shopping. Naturally, I got to thinking about which High 5 Casino characters you would – and would not – want to celebrate the holidays with:

Queen Isabella

I’m sure Queen Isabella has a great personality. She probably has some interesting stories, too. But invite her over your place to celebrate the holidays mainly because she’s an AMAZING gift giver.

Rembrandt Riches

Invite Rembrandt over, and just happen to leave out some painting supplies. See what happens – maybe you’ll end up with a priceless work of art on your hands, for the meager price of some ham and eggnog!

Rocket Man

You can invite Rocket Man over even if he lives far away; the dude has a jetpack, so transportation is not an issue. Once he’s over, subtly suggest that maybe he should give everyone a ride home – after all, with great power comes great responsibility, right?

Pets

There’s no way you should let the old man from Pets into your house. He definitely would show up with a pig, or a ferret, or both. Then he’d act like it’s no big deal as he fed his critters from the table, and before leaving he’d probably try to make you adopt something or another.

Pasión y Fuego

The couple from Pasión y Fuego would be nice, for a while. Then a switch would be invisibly flipped, and they’d be at each other’s necks over some perceived slight. Nobody wants that bringing down their holidays.

Bah, Humbug!

This one’s obvious. Stay away from Scrooge, at all costs!

We hope everyone’s enjoying the holiday season! Let us know which High 5 Casino characters you would and would not want to have over in the comments below.

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!

ThunderRoad_VS_ReviTUp
Thunder Road vs. Rev it Up

Who’d win in a race between the bikers from Thunder Road and the drivers from Rev It Up?

Obviously, the drivers in Rev It Up know what they’re doing, but I think the edge here has to go to the bikers from Thunder Road, for a few reasons. For one, a motorcycle weighs way less than a car, so the bikers would be able to accelerate up to top speed way quicker than their four-wheeled competition. Furthermore, motorcycles are much easier to maneuver, which would help if the race was held in a crowded spot. There are just too many advantages to riding a motorcycle for the drivers in Rev It Up to overcome.

EDGE: Thunder Road

Cat-Gangster_VS_Rev-It-Up
Cat Gangster vs. Fortune Cat Fever

Who’d win in a fight between the Cat Gangster and the feline from Fortune Cat Fever?

This one’s a no-brainer. Sure, the kitty from Fortune Cat Fever is no slouch, and he might even have some sharp claws. In a fair fight, he might be able to take down the Cat Gangster. But the Cat Gangster doesn’t want to fight fair. He’s a bad, bad dude who will do whatever it takes to win. Even though I’d probably root for the cat from Fortune Cat Fever to win, I’d still bet on that degenerate, evil Cat Gangster.

EDGE: Cat Gangster

Game Spotlight: Thunder Road

H5C_Thunder_Road_wall_post
The wind in your hair. The road swiftly disappearing beneath your feet. A sense of absolute freedom and total happiness. There’s nothing better than hitting the highway for destinations unknown on your motorcycle. Hop on your bike and head out on an open-air jackpot journey; you don’t know where you’re heading, but you’re certain you’ll have a blast on the way!

Thunder Road premieres today as the 120th premium slot at High 5 Casino! Is that a crazy number or what? I think there are more slots at H5C than people in North Dakota at this point. Thunder Road features 576 ways to win and Bonus Select to ensure your bankroll soars as you rocket across the roads.

What do you think of Thunder Road? What type of slots would you like to see High 5 Games make 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.

Ho, ho, ho everyone! I hope you’re excited for the holidays. I’ve got some tips for those of you who want to ring in the New Year playing High 5 Casino! Today I’m going to tackle a few ways you can understand the payouts at H5C.

1. See the paylines by adjusting the lines you bet

If you’ve ever wondered what the paylines are for a given game, just adjust the number of lines that you’re playing and the paylines will automatically be laid over the reels. Go all the way down to one line, and then back up to the maximum lines, to see how the paylines are added.

2. Check out the paytables for feature information

Curious about how a feature works? Just click on the paytable — located underneath the MAX button — for details. Make sure your MAX bet is turned off before doing this, though — that way a stray click doesn’t end up costing you your bankroll!

3. Ask us questions

If you’re ever curious about how a game pays, reach out to us and ask at support@high5games.com. You can also leave a comment here if there’s something you’d like me to explain.

Ok, that’s it for me and payouts this week. I hope you guys have a wonderful holiday, and I can’t wait to answer more of your questions next year! Until then, thanks for reading, good luck, and keep spinning!

Game Spotlights: Cat Gangster and Fortune Cat Fever Debut at H5C

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?

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!

H5C_GameVSGame_Liger_Hoot_1200x1200
Hoot Loot vs. Liger Loot

Who has more loot: the owl from Hoot Loot or the liger from Liger Loot?

Let’s be clear: both of these dudes are loaded. The owl from Hoot Loot was probably born with a silver spoon in his mouth. You can tell he’s been well off for a while by the way he dresses and his nonchalant air. He doesn’t even seem to be worried that his nest eggs are out in the open, where anyone can grab them – he’s got more dough somewhere or another. But he can’t compete with the liger from Liger Loot. Look at the maniacal hunger in his eyes. Amigo has cash, jewels, and gold literally overflowing from his cave. He probably overcame a rough background (single mother, learning disability, too much of a tiger for the lions and too much of a lion for the tigers) to found a tech startup, and is now worth billions.

EDGE: Liger Loot

H5C_GameVSGame_BigShow_vs_Jazz_
The Big Show vs. Jazz

Would you rather attend The Big Show or go to the club in Jazz?

There’s no question I’d rather head to the Jazz club than sit in the audience for a taping of The Big Show. There’s going to be a bunch of commercial breaks during The Big Show where you’ve got nothing better to do than twiddle your thumbs or perhaps talk to the people near you – gross! It would probably be a lot of hassle for not that much music. You get way more bang for your buck in a jazz club. Plus, it’s dark, you can drink, and you can look super cool on dates when you say you frequent jazz clubs. Just hope a follow-up question regarding jazz isn’t asked.

EDGE: Jazz

Game Spotlight: Sapphire Tiger

Sapphire_Tiger_wall_no_logos_post
The legend of the Sapphire Tigers proved irresistible, so you decided to seek them out. You’re not sure if you’ll find them, or if they even exist, but you set out into the jungle anyway. Days pass with no sign of the majestic animals, and you begin to lose hope. Then, just as you are about to give up, you spot them lurking in the distance – the most beautiful animals you’ve ever seen…

Sapphire Tiger debuts today as the 117th premium slot at High 5 Casino! This game has more than just stellar art design: 576 ways to win, Semi-Stacked Majors, and Right-to-Left Pays help you snag glorious wins!

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!
