H5C_Unlock_AegeanSunset_1200x1200
North of the Mediterranean, in between the mainlands of Greece and Turkey lies the Aegean Sea. People from all over the world travel here to experience a different type of lifestyle – the pace is slower, the days less stressful, the nights more romantic. As the sun sets over the Aegean Sea, and the wine starts to kick in, life feels full of possibilities…

Aegean Sunset is now unlocked for all players at High 5 Casino! This time around, there’s no waiting to unlock our latest release; instead, you can win big right off the bat with Super Stacks.

The debut of Aegean Sunset means there are now 100 premium games at High 5 Casino! We’re very proud that in less than two years we’ve managed to reach the triple-digit mark while still maintaining the top quality that High 5 Games is known for. No matter what mood you’re in, High 5 Casino has a game for you. You won’t find close to that many authentic slots anywhere else on Facebook. Be sure to like High 5 Casino’s fan page so you don’t miss out on the fun promotions we’re running to celebrate the 100-game milestone!

H5G illustrator Vince, who worked on Aegean Sunset, had this to say about the new release:

“Aegean Sunset is not just about a love affair between two people; it’s about a love of the region. The game is a travelogue of the area’s scenic beaches and beautiful blue sea, played out using snapshots of sunsets at three locales. While the sunsets help the loving couple celebrate the day’s events, with each setting sun also comes the thrill of what the next day will bring. That’s what makes this slot a good choice for High 5 Casino’s 100th release: We’re celebrating a milestone reached by H5G, but the true excitement is in what comes next.”

H5G art director Mike chimed in:

“Aegean Sunset is the sun glistening off the whitewashed houses of Santorini. It’s the calm Mediterranean waves lapping the shore. It’s the cool breeze. It’s laughter, mystery, hope, and excitement. Aegean Sunset is romance.”

Game Spotlight: Rev It Up

H5C_Unlock_RevItUp_1200x1200
While you were off barbequing and swimming and generally enjoying your Memorial Day Weekend, dedicated members of the High 5 Games team were preparing High 5 Casino for yet another amazing game. Their hard work pays off today: Rev It Up is now available and unlocked for all players at High 5 Casino!

Rev It Up is a slot game for those who like to live in the fast lane. It’s Friday night, and the city is filled with beautiful cars and even more beautiful women. Pick your ride and driver of choice, and then try to win one of the high-octane races you discover. Super Stacks and the Hi-Lo Stacks Bonus help you speed towards big wins!

I especially like playing Rev It Up because in real life I don’t get to drive often, and when I do drive I’m typically behind the wheel of a rust-colored ’93 Corolla. We’re talking probably four cylinders, maybe 15 horsepower here. It looks more like a dinky go-kart than something that should be allowed on the highway. I often lose accidental street races to riding lawnmowers and middle-aged people on Segways. If I challenged any of the sweet cars in Rev It Up to a race, my poor little Corolla would probably break down in fear before I could even put my foot on the gas pedal.

Fun Summer Games at High 5 Casino

Fun-Summer-Games_1200x1200
Here at the NYC HQ of High 5 Games, for better or worse, it finally feels like summer. For me, that’s mostly for the worse. I’m not looking forward to three or four months of sunburns that turn into farmer’s tans, or to constantly feeling sweaty and sticky. A quick glance at my phone – which can tell temperature more reliably than it can send text messages or receive calls – reveals it’s 85 degrees Fahrenheit today, and it’s only going to get hotter. Don’t get me wrong though; there are plenty of things to like about summer. High 5 Casino has lots of games with a summery feel. If you’re looking to beat the heat while still having fun, check out these awesome H5C summer slots:

Island Eyes

Sparkling like emeralds from the shadows, her eyes will captivate you. Set forth on an adventure to find true love, hidden treasures… and unlock the secret of her Island Eyes. Island Eyes features Super Stacks, which lead to spectacular wins. Plus, you can pretend like you’re vacationing on a beautiful, warm island! Wherever you are currently, you’d probably rather be on an island. If you’re currently reading this from an island, I hate you.

Ocean’s Glory

Ocean’s Glory is a magical escape into the deep blue sea. Leave land behind and head out on an aquatic adventure that will leave you breathless after big wins with Super Symbols. Frolicking dolphins, magnificent whales, and other mesmerizing sea creatures will guide you as you explore the untold wonders waiting for you in the depths of the ocean – go find them! And try to avoid those annoying stinging jellyfish.

Golden Odyssey

Summer is definitely the best time to embark on an odyssey; you don’t want to be tripping around the world in bad weather (just ask Odysseus). Golden Odyssey lets you experience an epic tale of loyalty and temptation in the wake of the Trojan War. Greek heroes, the gods of Mount Olympus, and the mythological Cyclops await you. Do you have the strength to complete your journey home, or will you be seduced ashore by the Sirens and their lovely songs? Come aboard the ship and find out. Even if you don’t have what it takes, you can still win big with Tumbling Reels, Split Symbols, and Stacked Wilds.

White Falls

Let the good times rain down upon you. White Falls depicts a fascinating and serene atmosphere for players looking to escape the commotion of ordinary life. With a dazzling heroine, stunning graphics, and rewarding features like Stacked Wilds, Connected Lines, and Horizontal Expanding Wilds, you can definitely let loose and have fun with this slot.

Slot Fundamentals: Super Stacks

SlotFundamentals_SuperStacks_403x403
Slot Fundamentals is a column we’ll be running occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with Super Stacks, a popular feature that can be found in many of our games.

One of the best parts of playing slot games is the time between when a player spins and when the symbols finally settle on the reels. As the various colors and shapes whiz by, the suspense builds and anything seems possible. That fleeting feeling of anticipation and possibility is one of the reasons playing slots is so much fun. Super Stacks make the time between the spin and the payout even more exciting, and potentially lead to big and beautiful wins as well. But how exactly do Super Stacks work?

Essentially, Super Stacks increase the frequency that a full stack of the same symbol will land in a reel. In a Super Stacks game you’re likely to see long rows of matching symbols in each of the vertical columns, instead of random groupings of various symbols. This feature leads to compelling gameplay, because long rows of matching symbols humming by create even more suspense than usual. More importantly, it increases the potential for huge blowout wins, complete with stunning animated graphics. Look for Super Stacks in High 5 Casino games like Dangerous Beauty, Jaguar Princess, MISS UNIVERSE Crowning Moment, Purrfect, and She-Wolf and Shake the Sky games like Bollywood Bride, Cirque Chinois, and Silk & Steel.

We hope you found that helpful! Which slot fundamental would you like to see us explain in the future?

Game Spotlight: She-Wolf

H5C_SheWolf_Unlocked_403x403
Today’s post comes from High 5 Blog correspondent Ali.

She-Wolf debuts at High 5 Casino today unlocked for everyone! Who is the She-Wolf? She’s unlike any other woman you’ve ever seen. Beautiful, yet dangerous. Intelligent, yet wild. Having given up on the world long ago, she now resides in the wilderness, living off the land and communing with the wolves that follow her. She lives a simple life, unburdened by the demands of society. Want to see for yourself? Then try to track her down, if you dare…

She-Wolf was created by H5G’s 50 West art studio. The art team put a high level of attention into ensuring the slot had a primal feel to it. H5G illustrator Scott, who worked on She-Wolf, shared some of his insights with us:

“One thing visually we wanted to do is to really push the organic and natural motifs, so instead of a lot of gold framing we have wood textures, lots of trees, and rocks. We borrowed from Native American motifs as well as primitive man motifs – just combining these things to make a sort of timeless fantasy setting.”

She-Wolf features Super Stacks and a Collection Bonus. Super Stacks make it easier to record big wins because long stacks of symbols are more likely than ever to appear on the reels. With the Collection Bonus, players are awarded additional games if they collect the letter B-O-N-U-S from the reels.

Don’t miss out on the alluring She-Wolf, now available to play at High 5 Casino!

Game Spotlight: Parfum Adore

H5C_ParfumAdore_Unlocked_403x403
The little things in life often provide the most joy. A note from an old friend. A glass of wine after a long day. Or even the smell of a beautiful new perfume. Perfumes allow us to express ourselves through our sense of smell, to demonstrate what we find sexy and who we want to be. In Parfum Adore, you’ll find that the perfume you choose plays a large role in the image you project. So, who do you want to be tonight?

Parfum Adore, the second High Limit game at High 5 Casino, was unlocked today for all players! Just to refresh your memory, High Limit games, which always come unlocked, don’t have a maximum bet limit based on your player level. If you’ve got the H5C cash, you can spin the reels like a high roller, whether you’re player level 12 or player level 212.

Parfum Adore has some great gameplay features to go along with its beautiful art design. Super Stacks lead to huge wins during regular spins by increasing the possibility that long stacks of symbols will line up on the reels, while a Hi-Lo Bonus makes free games more fun than ever!

Today’s post comes from High 5 Blog correspondent Ali.

Prince Nezha is coming this week to Shake the Sky Casino! Players who love the more traditional game themes at STS will certainly be drawn to this new social slot, inspired by Chinese mythology and the warrior deity Prince Nezha.

This new game tells the famous tale of Prince Nezha’s feud with the Dragon King of the Eastern Sea. Players are invited to travel with the Prince to battle the Dragon King at his underwater palace. Prince Nezha features beautiful, brightly colored artwork and exciting animations. Deep in the sea, players can surround themselves with all types of aquatic life, and, of course, plenty of auspicious symbols! Swim alongside prosperous crabs, and be surrounded by the fortuitous powers of dragons. While you’re paddling through the water, keep an eye out for the bloom of translucent jellyfish, or a wild, purple-haired mermaid.

Prepare yourself for a fantastic aquatic adventure in Prince Nezha! Super Stacks and a free games bonus will lead to enormous jackpots when this thrilling game debuts later this week at Shake the Sky Casino!
