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.

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.

Game Preview: Geo Quest

STS_GamePreview_GeoQuest_1200x1200
Geo Quest premieres later this week as the latest premium game at Shake the Sky Casino!

There are wonders scattered all over this vast planet, and Geo Quest lets you visit a few of them while on the search for big wins! Get ready for a globe-trotting trip that will take you from the Egyptian pyramids to the Roman Colosseum and beyond. Grab your passport and pack a bag, because you’re about to embark on a journey you’ll never forget! Stacked Symbols, Stacked Wilds, and a Collect-2-Wild Bonus lead to spectacular jackpots!

We here at High 5 Games have plenty of interests outside of making the best slots around. In honor of Geo Quest’s imminent release, High 5-er Lori is here to talk to you about geocaching, one of her hobbies:

Geocaching? What?

Exactly! Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor scavenger hunt that is conducted through the use of a GPS. The goal is to locate geocaches, which are hidden everywhere and contain all types of random stuff, through the use of certain coordinates (longitude and latitude for the win!). People from around the world can play anytime, anywhere.

Fun! How do I play?

Playing is pretty simple, and the official rules can be found on www.geocaching.com. To get started, you visit the aforementioned website and type in your zip code to view the hidden caches near you. Each cache has its own set of coordinates that you then put into your GPS (you can use a handheld device, a smartphone app, or a car GPS). The cache page not only gives you coordinates, but also a description of the container, its size, any specialty items inside, and sometimes even hints. Believe it or not, there are over 2 million active geocaches and over 5 million geocachers worldwide!

What’s inside a cache?

There are many different types of caches that can be found, ranging from large ammo cases to nano-sized rock decoys. Inside every cache, aside from whatever else you find, and no matter how big or small, is a log book. Everyone that finds the cache gets to log their name inside; once that’s done, you can also mark it on the cache page online to let everyone know what you found (or didn’t find).

You are typically able to find items inside larger caches. Many themed caches exist, where fellow geocachers can take and leave things like CDs, or music, or foreign currency. Don’t start geocaching just to turn a profit, though; if you take something, you must leave something of equal or greater value. You might also find trackables inside a geocache, which are basically dog tags that travel the world living in different caches (sort of like a Where’s George dollar).

Some of the most unique caches I’ve found in the past include a fake spider on a tree in a park, a magnetic fake bolt underneath a guardrail, and an ammo container in the woods that contained foreign currency. I currently am trying to figure out where to place a cache that looks like a piece of chewed gum, but is really a tiny magnet! I doubt anyone will ever discover it, but I still want to find the perfect location so it doesn’t get lost or stolen.

Some High 5-ers take the plunge…

Geocachers
I took some High 5-ers on a rendezvous to find one of the caches hidden in Madison Square Park in New York City. The weather did not cooperate during our first attempt – it poured the whole afternoon. Being determined geocachers, we went out looking anyway but came up short. The second time we went it was beautiful out, and using the hints given to us, we were able to find the cache! That tricky bugger was magnetized inside a street post – you would have never known it was there unless you were looking for it. We all had a great time flexing our detective skills and looking like weirdos in the park!

Go out and play!

Geocaching is a lot of fun, and practically free to do! I love exploring new areas in towns that I’ve been to a hundred times. Geocaching gives you a whole new perspective on the world around you, which is brimming with secrets just out of sight and waiting to be discovered.

We’re interested in what you’re interested in! If you have any cool hobbies or stories you’d like to share, leave us a comment below!
