Employee Spotlight – Carrie M!

Have you ever wondered who the brilliant mind behind the descriptions of our amazing games like Flower Bride, Red Panda Palace, and Sailing the 7 Skies is? Meet Carrie M.!

1. How long have you been working with High 5 Games?
I’ve been working at High 5 Games for a little over two years.

2. Please tell us what you do, as Marketing Communications Lead for High 5 Games?
Visit the High 5 Casino website and search for a game. Then scroll to the bottom and read the game description. I write those! Additionally, I write weekly and monthly newsletters. and other copy related tasks.

3. As Lead for Marketing Communications, what is your favorite part of your job?
I really enjoy coming up with a backstory for our slot games. As a writer, it’s fun connecting games’ symbols with my creativity. I get to connect character symbols… make them fall in love or connect them as spies on a mission or anything really!

4. You write the game descriptions for many of our games, tell us about the process and where you get your amazing ideas from?
First I play the slot game. I really enjoy playing slot games so this is my favorite part. Then I take a break. After a break, I spin some more! I pretty much spin until I feel inspired. This could take up to a day or two, sometimes more. Once I know the direction I’d like to take, I write! The ideas come from the games! Not for nothing but our games are pretty awesome!

5. Which game description, that you’ve written, is your favorite? Why?
The game hasn’t been released yet so I’m not sure I can divulge that information. However, I will say this… prepare for suspense, thrills, and a lot of fun. I really enjoyed writing the game description for this particular slot because it’s fun and suspenseful!

6. What is your favorite game on High 5 Casino and why?
Having 170+ games does not make this an easy question. I’m in between Triple Raven and Triple Hoot. I must have a thing for the feature since both games have the feature Triple Symbols :)!

7. How long does it take you to come up with descriptions for the games?
Can you tell us what goes into it? It depends on the game. Some games are a bit more straight-forward while others give us the chance to be more creative.

8. Where is your favorite place to travel and why?
I love traveling everywhere! One of my 2016 resolutions was to travel as much as possible. So far parts of my heart stayed in New Orleans, Louisiana, and in Santa Teresa, Brazil.

9. If you weren’t in the Marketing Communications field, what other profession would you have chosen?
I most likely would’ve focused on being a children’s book writer.

10. If you could work with a famous author, dead or alive, who would it be?
I would’ve loved to work with Kurt Vonnegut. I love his writing style, especially in his novel, Slaughterhouse-Five.

11. If you could be a High 5 Casino game character who would you like to be? Why?
I’d like to be the girl in Aegean Sunset or the kitty cat in Curious Kingdom! Both look cheerful and fun!

  1. I have been playing your game for a couple years now( well my parents do on my facebook link) and well have not been real satisfied as of late. Considering today as an example we have tried to do your free colossal tournaments and they lock up after 3 or 4 spins and have to log out and back in for the same thing to happen again. Bring this to light to whomever controls this stuff and get it corrected. Thanks!!

    • Hi Eric, We are very sorry that you have been experienced game crashing while in our tournaments. If this occurs in the future, if there is still time remaining in the tournament, just sign back into H5C and you will be able to pick up where you left off. If time expires before you get can back in, we will autospin your remaining spins for you so you don’t miss out on your prize. Nothing is predetermined; the outcome of each spin is randomly determined on our servers. The next time you enter the app, you can see your tournament’s results in the ‘Tournaments’ tab of your player card. You can access your player card by clicking on your name in the top, right hand corner of our app.

      To help prevent your games from freezing in the future, please adjust your game resolution. This can be done by clicking the gear shaped icon on the top bar in the lobby and changing it from HIGH to MED or LOW. Lowering the resolution will reduce the number of animations in your game, which helps the game run better on certain computer systems. We also recommend that you regularly clear your cache, and completely close and re-open your browser. It’s best if you don’t have multiple browser tabs or browser windows open, as this can reduce the amount of memory available to the game. For instructions on how to clear your cache, please consult this link: http://www.wikihow.com/Clear-Your-Browser's-Cache

      We hope this helps!
