Thanksgiving at High 5 Casino

h5c_thanksgiving_guests_1200_1200
Ladies and gentlemen, we are fast approaching the greatest holiday that the United States has to offer: Thanksgiving. Turkey Day appeals to the lazy glutton in everyone. Three days from now we’ll all be eating and drinking too much and maybe remembering to give thanks as football drones on in the background. Hopefully you’re all seated next to the cool cousin this year, not the creepy uncle with painfully bad jokes that you laugh at anyway because you sort of have to. The only day that’s better than Thanksgiving is the day after Thanksgiving – sandwiches piled high with leftover turkey and whatever else makes it through the night somehow taste even better than the meal proper. With Thanksgiving right around the corner, we got to thinking about which High 5 Casino characters you would, and would not, want to celebrate with:

Inviting the futuristic family from Retropolis is a no-brainer. Be sure to extend an invite to the family robot, who’ll take care of all the post-meal cleaning for you. And try to sit next to Mom or Dad during the meal itself; you may be able to pick up some very valuable stock tips.

The explorer who discovered the Fountain of Youth definitely has some great stories. More importantly, he’s got that magical elixir, so when he asks what to bring tell him to share the good stuff. Slip some of that youth juice in Grandma’s wine glass and prepare to be amazed!

Jazz

Because beautiful background music makes everything better. Imagine how impressed your in-laws will be!

I’d steer clear from inviting this doc over for Thanksgiving. He’d probably complain about how unhealthy everything is, while totally ignoring the fact that everything is also delicious. Plus, he seems like the type of dude who would hit on your wife, or try to convince your mother she needs plastic surgery.

The Lovely Outlaws

Sure, they’re beautiful, but don’t forget that they’re also very dangerous! They’d probably be great company until they had too much to drink, at which point they’d repay your hospitality by robbing you and burning your saloon house to the ground.

We hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! Let us know which High 5 Casino characters you would and would not want to have over in the comments below.

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!

Slot Fundamentals: Bonus Select

Slot-Fundamental_Bonus_Select
Slot Fundamentals is a column we run occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with Bonus Select, a popular feature that can be found in many of our games.

Slot players love bonus rounds. There are few things better than seeing the symbols line up just so, and getting a bunch of free spins (and hopefully some big wins) as a result. High 5 Games is always trying to come up with fun new experiences for its players, which is why it invented Bonus Select, a twist on the traditional bonus round. But how exactly does Bonus Select work?

When Bonus Select is triggered, players can choose one of five options for their free games. Each bonus option offers a different number of spins and three different multiplier values that can appear on wild symbols. The multipliers are additive, creating great opportunities for a winning combination. The more spins you opt for, the lower your multiplier values, and vice versa. If you’re feeling very lucky, you can go for a few spins with high multipliers, or if you’d like a longer bonus you can choose more spins with lower multipliers; the type of bonus round you experience in a slot game with this feature is totally up to you! Look for Bonus Select in High 5 Casino games like Wellspring and Love and Valor and Shake the Sky games like Dragon Showdown and Big Dragon Lounge.

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

Summer Games
As of last weekend, summer is officially here. We hope all of our players at High 5 Casino have a wonderful few months filled with backyard barbeques, trips to the beach, and [insert other clichéd summer activity here]. Sometimes, though, you need to get out of the sun and enjoy a little indoors time. Here are a few High 5 Casino games that can help you beat the heat:

Pearl Bay

What could be more refreshing than a dip into Pearl Bay? This exotic destination isn’t quite like your local creek. Check out exquisite fish and curious mermaids while winning big with Locking Wilds and the Bonus Mega Multiplier!

The hottest night club in town has to have air conditioning, right? Regardless, as you’re drinking and dancing the night away while surrounded by glamorous characters in an opulent setting, you’ll certainly feel cool. Major jackpots with Super Symbols don’t hurt, either.

Spending an afternoon at a beautiful waterfall that also happens to be the Fountain of Youth sounds like pretty much the ideal summer day. You’ll come for the surroundings, but you’ll stay because of incredible wins with Bonus Select!

Majestic Sea

Deep below the surface, an aquatic wonderland filled with underwater friends awaits you. Take a deep breath, and search for sunken treasure, which you’ll likely find thanks to Split Symbols!

Stay cool at High 5 Casino.

Eye-Popping May Statistics from High 5 Casino

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

The average person takes 23,040 breaths per day. The average number of spins per day at High 5 Casino in May was roughly 7,278 times that amount. That means you’d have to spin more than 7,000 times per breath to reach that number of spins on your own in a day. Any takers? We’re just kidding – please don’t try that, but please do take a look at May’s High 5 Casino stats:

High 5 Fight Club

We often ask our players over on the High 5 Casino fan page to comment on different game vs. game matchups. Today I’ll be offering my thoughts on two fascinating showdowns between four different High 5 Casino slots; take the polls below and let us know what you think!

Empress of Time vs. Wellspring

Would you rather be able to control time like the Empress of Time or discover the Fountain of Youth like in Wellspring?

Both of these powers sound tempting, but I think I’d rather have the same abilities as the Empress of Time instead of finding the Fountain of Youth like in Wellspring. There are a lot of philosophical questions to ponder regarding whether or not immortality would be enjoyable: Would I be happy without my friends and family? Would my life still have meaning if I lived forever? Thinking about this stuff just makes my head hurt. On the other hand, I know for a fact I’d like to control time. For one, I’d never be late to work again! If I was going to miss my train I could just pause time for a few minutes and stroll to the station, instead of my normal routine of sprinting to the station only to have the train doors close in my face. I’d also never have to wait in line again, or listen to a particularly boring relative regale me with the same story I’ve heard for years. Basically, I could avoid all petty annoyances if I had the ability to control time, which I just can’t pass up.

Golden Odyssey vs. Crystal Kingdom

Would you rather embark on a Golden Odyssey or visit the Crystal Kingdom?

Just for weather reasons alone, I have to say I’d rather embark on a Golden Odyssey than visit the Crystal Kingdom. Sure, the Crystal Kingdom might be a blast, but it looks really cold. Even the young queen who rules over the land doesn’t take her hands out of her weird, impractical single glove. Plus, bears and wolves protect the realm, and I’m not trying to deal with that, especially if I’m freezing. On the other hand, check out what they’re wearing in Golden Odyssey. They all look warm, which allows them to appreciate their epic journey in the wake of the Trojan War. In addition, I’m a sucker for ancient Greek culture, so I’d love having the chance to interact with Greek heroes, gods, and monsters like the Cyclops and the Sirens.

Game Spotlight: Wellspring

H5C_Wellspring_Milestone
The search has consumed your life. You’ve been ridiculed and called mad, yet you’ve never given up. After all, if you discover what you’re looking for, it will all be worth it. Just when all seems lost, a new lead appears that seems promising. After a long journey through uncharted territories, you come across a beautiful waterfall where two lovely women wait. Have you finally discovered the Fountain of Youth?

Wellspring debuts as the latest amazing game at High 5 Casino today! With 90+ slots available to play at this point, it won’t be long before we’re the only casino app on Facebook with over 100 premium games! Wellspring has 243 ways to win and Bonus Select to ensure that you’ll land some reinvigorating jackpots while visiting this mythical locale. I don’t even know if I’d want to drink from the Fountain of Youth, though. Not because of a philosophical concern about death bringing meaning to life, or because I wouldn’t want to live without my family and friends around. But rather because I know I would get to the Fountain of Youth right after some really gross person misread the instructions and bathed in it instead of drinking from it. I’d rather accept my own mortality than drink some random dude’s bath water.

What do you think of Wellspring? What type of games would you like to see us make in the future?
