Around the Baseball Diamond with H5C

H5C_Baseball
The interminably long baseball season is finally heating up. With a little over a month left in the regular season, I am now able to watch one or two innings before falling into a deep sleep where I dream of more interesting things like paint drying or eating oatmeal. During one of my baseball-induced snoozes recently, I dreamt about which High 5 Casino characters would make the best baseball players. Or something like that. Anyway, here’s what I came up with:

Love and Valor takes place a while ago, when people didn’t know any better and still enjoyed baseball, so I bet at least one of the soldiers had dreams of playing ball in front of packed stadiums before the war began. He was probably a second baseman who hit for average and played solid defense, and coaches loved him because he hustled.

The explorer from Wellspring used to be a pitcher back in the day, but then he got old and couldn’t throw anymore, so he had to set off in search of the Fountain of Youth. Once he found it, he became a young man with an old man’s brain, making him the craftiest pitcher ever.

Bear Mountain

What animal could possibly be a better catcher than a bear? Go ahead, try to steal home. Safe or out, you’re dead.

Jaguar Princess

Jaguar Princess seems pretty fleet of foot, so I bet she’d make a good outfielder. She could probably steal some bases, too – once you’ve outrun predators, you can probably outrun a baseball.

Rumor has it that Doc Amante carries a baseball bat in the trunk of his sweet car, which he uses to bash home runs, of course.

What High 5 Casino character do you think would make the best baseball player? Let us know in the comments below!

High 5 Games Help Desk

Every couple of weeks Elaine, High 5 Blog’s CRM correspondent, stops by to discuss ways to optimize your High 5 Casino and/or Shake the Sky experience.

Howdy, High 5-ers! I hope you’re all having a great week! Today I’m going to give some tips on how to play video poker on High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky.

1. Use the keyboard shortcuts

Save yourself incessant clicking and utilize some of the keyboard shortcuts in video poker. To quickly deal and draw, just tap the space bar. To hold your cards, use the number keys one through five. To change you bet, use the arrow keys. And to bet double or nothing on a winning hand, hit ‘Enter.’

2. Customize your experience in the game options

In the game options, you can change the theme of your cards, turn ‘Autohold’ off completely or set it to only hold pairs, and turn the ‘Double or Nothing’ option off. The game rules and paytable are also located in the settings.

3. Go at your own pace

You can adjust the speed of your games by clicking the arrows next to the ‘Options’ button. Depending on your mood, you can set the game to deal lightning fast, or at a moderate pace.

I hope this improves your video poker experience! Let me know if you have any other questions about video poker or anything else on High 5 Casino or Shake the Sky, for next time. Happy spinning and have a wonderful week!

Top-Five High 5 Casino Games EVER

H5C_Top5GamesEver_1200x1200
Every month here at High 5 Blog we compile stats from High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky Casino, but today we have something special to share: The top-five games of all-time at H5C! There are 100+ premium slots at High 5 Casino, so if a game made the top five it must be truly loved by our players. Without further ado, here’s the list:

1. Secrets of the Forest

Secrets of the Forest takes players to a soothing and charming place where imagination is encouraged and dreams are realized. While in this enchanting world they play with mystical characters and win big with Tumbling Reels and Connected Lines.

2. Hoot Loot

Sometimes, a forest in the dead of night can be downright scary. It’s dark, there are strange noises, and who knows what’s lurking. But in this forest of fun, players are guaranteed to have a good time. Hoot Loot is a casino classic for its endearing characters and its ground-breaking features: the Hoot Line and the Hoo’s Safe Bonus.

3. The Amulet and the Charm

Need a little good fortune? Want to find the luckiest charm of them all? Look no further than The Amulet and the Charm. This High 5 Games hit takes players into a world of fantasy, where mysterious characters seek the precious amulet and all the wealth that comes with it. It’s celebrated for its great music, dramatic storytelling, and fun features like Scatter Bucks and Stacked Wilds.

4. Vivaldi’s Seasons

The hope of spring. The power of summer. The beauty of autumn. The chill of winter. The seasons resonate with people, as does the classic work by the great Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi. In this homage to the legendary musician from three centuries ago, H5G has created a striking new hit complete with Super Stacks and the Pick-A-Super-Stack feature.

5. Gypsy

She roams the countryside, her supernatural wagon illuminating a path for her band of devoted followers. Villages far and wide know her by name. Get on the good side of the gypsy, and anything may be granted to you – wealth, status, even knowledge of the future. Get on her bad side, and you’ll soon discover the true extent of her powers. Players love Gypsy because they score major jackpots with Split Symbols.
