Game Spotlight: The Newsmen

newmen_glass_no-logos
The Newsmen is the 124th game to release at High 5 Casino! Live footage for this game was filmed in High 5 Games‘ in-office studios using real actors and rad 70s-style costumes. Mario, the art director of H5G’s 50 West studio, provided some insight into the background of this far-out new game:

Action News Channel 5 is New York City’s top-rated newscast in the 1970s, but when an internal drug ring threatens to bring the news media giant down, NYC’s top undercover detectives pose as newsmen to bring the drug dealers to justice. It sounds like an ideal plan — the only problem is, while they’re truly New York’s finest cops, they’re also the worst newscasters in the world!

Get to know each of The Newsmen below, and find out more about their double lives — newscasters by day, crime fighters by night!

Kings-of-Gibraltar_Unlocked
The history of civilization is littered with countless conflicts, many of which are rooted in one unfortunate fact: Everyone wants to rule, but there can only be one king. You are not king, but you believe you have what it takes. You possess integrity, intelligence, resources, and, most importantly, a loyal army. As you sail on Gibraltar, ready to do battle with the ruler there, you know today will be the day that will make or break you…

Kings of Gibraltar is now unlocked for all players as the latest High Limit game at High 5 Casino! High Limit games have different rules regarding the maximum bet you can make. In our normal games, your maximum bet depends on your player level. High Limit games, in contrast, do not have a maximum bet limit based on player level. In these titles, no matter what your player level, you can ante up as much as you’d like, and live the life of a casino kingpin! In Kings of Gibraltar, you can score the same absurdly large jackpots with Super Stacks and the Crown Jewels Collection Bonus whether you’re at player level 13 or 272!
