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!

Attention all cat lovers! It’s a very feline week at High 5 Casino. Two new cat-themed titles have released unlocked! Think of these games as an early holiday gift from us – a couple new ways to unwind when you’re done braving the crowds and shopping for presents.

Cat Gangster premieres this week as the 118th game at High 5 Casino. It’s often said that the battle between cops and criminals is a cat-and-mouse game, and in Cat Gangster that idiom comes to life! Come along on a wild, stylized ride to a big city where the animals don’t just talk – they drink, fight, and connive! Will the eponymous feline ne’er-do-well of this game continue to live large with his illicit funds and beautiful girlfriend, or will he get taken down by a rat cop or a rival gorilla thug? Play Cat Gangster today and find out! Cat Gangster features 576 ways to win and Bonus Select, which leads to criminally large wins.

Shake the Sky fan-favorite Fortune Cat Fever also launches unlocked at High 5 Casino. Fortune Cat Fever originally launched on Shake the Sky in May, and the game is now bringing its good luck to players at H5C! The fortune cat is a common auspicious symbol that makes a beckoning motion with its paw and is meant to bring good fortune to its owner. Fortune Cat Fever features Split Symbols for double the wins, and a free games bonus.

Game Spotlight: Chang E

Chang-E_glass_1200x1200
Chang E – Reaching the Moon – released this week at Shake the Sky Casino. Chang E is a famous Chinese myth, and the latest game from the Romance Series to launch at STS.

The legend of Chang E goes a little something like this… Once upon a time, ten suns appeared in the sky, scorching everything in their path. Hou Yi quickly grabed his bow and destroyed all but one of the suns, which made him a hero and allowed him to marry the lovely Chang E. All was well until a thief broke into the couple’s home and attempted to steal a magical elixir. To prevent the potion from falling into the wrong hands, Chang E drank the elixir, which magically propeled her up to the moon, forever separating her from her love. On the moon, her lone companion is the rabbit who made the elixir.

Change E features Super Stacks with ReSpins and a Pick Bonus. If you land a ReSpin symbol, you’ll be taken to a special ReSpin screen to use your extra spins. You can continue to earn additional ReSpins while on the ReSpin screen, so the extra spins don’t have to stop!

Play Chang E at Shake the Sky Casino today!
