# Slot Fundamentals: Split Symbols

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: Split Dragon

Q: What’s better than one dragon? A: Two dragons! Head to Shake the Sky Casino today and check out Split Dragon, the new game that proves the answer to that exceedingly easy question.

Split Dragon features beautiful, unique art design that you simply won’t be able to find at other Facebook apps. Nick Chin, the art director of H5G’s Red Gold studio, was kind enough to talk to High 5 Blog about the new game:

“Split Dragon is filled with auspicious symbols, like kites, peaches, and koi fish, but the dragon is easily the most powerful symbol in the game. The title refers to the fact that there are actually two dragons, and when they both appear they bring players the most luck and the biggest jackpots. Jin [animator], Irvin [illustrator], and Xindi [production artist] all did a great job of combining 2D and 3D elements to create an interactive experience for players. There’s even a 3D dragon that jumps out at you, which is a lot of fun. It came out so well that we’re going to do a sequel!”

In typical High 5 Games fashion, Split Dragon has great gameplay to back up its top-notch art design. Split Symbols give players the chance to get up to 10 matching symbols on any given line, because any one spot can contain two symbols, while the Golden Dragon Bonus leads to unpredictable and exciting bonus rounds filled with big jackpots!
