H5C Slotitutions!

h5c_newyearresolutions_wallpostHey High 5-ers, 2016 has come to an end, and we are so excited for what 2017 has in store! In 2016, we introduced players to the new VIP Coin Store, over 20 new games, added Jackpots to some of our favorite slots, and even introduced a new casino: High 5 Vegas! With 2017 here, and our team working hard, we can’t wait to share with you all that 2017 has in store for High 5 Casino!

Across the globe, when January 1st hits, it’s time to start New Year’s Resolutions. The New Year brings an exciting time to set goals for yourself to achieve throughout the year. Whether that’s eating healthy and taking more frequent trips to the gym, or saving spare change to save up for that vacation you’ve always wanted, nothing will stop you from reaching your 2017 Resolution!

Here at High 5 Casino, instead of calling our goals “”Resolutions,”” we call them “”Slotitutions!””
This year we decided to ask our High 5 Team what their Slotitutions are for the New Year! Do they want to win a Grand Jackpot in one of our Jackpot Games? Bet big to win even bigger in Double Da Vinci Diamond’s? Or play their favorite H5C game and reach game level 200 or higher? Here’s some High 5 team members H5C Slotitution for 2017:

  1. Sam – My Slotitution for 2017 is to land on a Jackpot in my favorite game The Charleston! My favorite era of time is the 1920’s and when I play The Charleston I feel like I’m there. I hope to hit a Minor, Major or Grand Jackpot soon!
  2. Lou– My Slotitution for 2017 is to get all of my game levels to game level 250, so I can take advantage of the 4-Hour Bonus coins!
  3. Joe- My Slotitution for 2017 is to come in first place in one of H5C Paid Tournaments! I love the suspense of playing against other H5C players for the chance to win coins!
  4. Logan- My Slotitution for 2017 is to log into High 5 Casino every 4 hours and collect all the 4-Hour Bonus coins I can!
  5. Shaheen– My Slotitution for 2017 is to earn and send 5 gifts to friends each day so I can collect the friend bonus once they claim their gift!

Employee Spotlight- Rahul A. 

h5c_employeespotlight_rahul_wallpostnobar
Hey High 5-ers! Have you ever wondered who creates the mind blowing game features for High 5 Casino, Shake the Sky and High 5 Vegas? Meet Rahul A, Game Designer!

Rahul and his team have created game features for High 5-ers favorite games such as: CHICAGO The Musical, Empress of Time, Rocket Man, Sinbad and the Sultan of Fire, Maggie and the Martians, Gobblers Gone Wild and more!

1. How long have you been working at High 5 Games?
I’ve been with the company for about 4 years now.

2. Please tell us what you do as a Mathematician for High 5 Games?
My main function is to come up with game features and ideas with my team, that we think our players will like and enjoy playing in a slot. Once we have an idea, we calculate all the odds and stats specific to that game to make sure the pays are correct and to make sure our players will like how often features will happen.

3. What process do you and your team have to go through to come up with the pay lines/math behind for a new slot game?
We often have meetings where we brainstorm ideas. In these meetings we talk about things we’ve done in the past and about how we can improve/alter them to make other interesting games. We also always try to think of new ideas that we think could be cool and that would excite our players. It’s all about coming up with features that our players would like.

4. What is your favorite part of working as a Mathematician for High 5 Games?
My favorite part about working as a mathematician is the freedom in creativity that I get in making the games.

5. High 5 Games recently launched High 5 Vegas, what is your favorite game so far?
It’s got be to Chicago the Musical. I like the fact that there are a lot of features and 2 bonus games. I also designed that game!

6. If you could be a High 5 Casino game character who would you like to be? Why?
I’d want to be Sinbad from Sinbad and the Sultan of Fire. I think it’d be cool to go on adventures and fight bad guys.

7. If you could go to lunch with a High 5 Casino character who would it be and why?
I’d want to go to lunch with the Empress from Empress of Time. It seems like she would be an interesting person to talk to and that she would have a lot of cool stories about her adventures.

8. As there are almost 200 games on High 5 Casino, how do you keep track of all the different paylines and ways to win?
We write computer programs to keep track of all the different pays, features, and stats.

9. What is your favorite game feature to work with when creating pay lines and ways to win?
My favorite game feature is free games. I really like that most games have them and that in the free games you always get some unique cool feature that could have huge payouts!

10. You’re stuck in an elevator, which High 5 Casino character do you call for help?
I’d call the rocket man from Rocket Man. He’d probably be able to get me out very quickly.

11. Who is your favorite famous mathematician and why?
It’s definitely Leonard Euler. He was one of the most prolific mathematicians of all time and made contributions to almost every field of mathematics.

12. What is your favorite type of math to work with?
My favorite branch of mathematicians is geometry. I really enjoy the visual aspects of the subject.

December Solstice Factoids!

h5c_factoids_decembersolstice_blogpostHappy December Solstice!

Did you know that the December Solstice represents two different things depending on what hemisphere you’re located in! In the Northern Hemisphere it is known as the Winter Solstice, while in the Southern Hemisphere it is known as the Summer Solstice!

In the Northern Hemisphere, the Winter Solstice represents the first day of winter and the shortest day of the year. While in the Southern Hemisphere, the Summer Solstice represents the first day of summer and the longest day of the year! This is because the equinoxes and solstices are opposite on the opposite sides of the planet! How cool is that!
Here are some more interesting facts about the December Solstice:

1. The sun on the December Solstice shines directly over the Tropic of Capricorn (latitude 23° 30′ South) in the Southern Hemisphere.

2. The December Solstice can occur from the dates of December 20-December 23, however falling on the 20th or the 23rd day of the month is extremely rare.

3. The last time the December Solstice fell on December 23rd was in the year 1903 and it will not happen again until the year 2303!

4. The term solstice comes from the Latin word solstitium, meaning ‘the Sun stands still’. During the December Solstice, the Sun reaches its most southern position as seen from Earth and appears to stand still at the Tropic of Capricorn and then reverses its direction.

5. People tend to say that during the Winter Solstice the Earth is furthest from the Sun, however this is a MYTH! During the Winter Solstice, the Northern Hemisphere is actually closest to the sun!

So what do you think? Are you excited for the December Solstice to mark either the first day of winter or the first day of summer depending on your geographic location? Comment in the conversation bubble located on the top right corner of your screen and let us know!

H5G Gives Back: Volunteers of America

h5c_h5ggivesback_wallpost

While we are all very lucky to be able to give and receive this holiday, there are some who aren’t as fortunate. Around the office we decided that the December holiday season is the perfect time to give back.

This year, High 5 Games is honored to have partnered with Volunteers of America – Greater New York region to provide children with families in shelters and preschool children with developmental delays in the Bronx with holiday gifts. High 5 Games employees stepped up to the plate and choose one or more child to shop for. Employees were given a list from the children of what they may want for the holidays. Our employees went above and beyond this holiday season and provided them with gifts they’ll remember for a lifetime.

Each holiday season, Volunteers of America, holds several drives to make the holidays special for the people they serve. To help Volunteers of America make the holidays special for those children, High 5 Games was able to present 60 gifts collected through our office Holiday Gift Campaign.

About Volunteers of America: Volunteers of America is a national human services organization that has been helping men, women, and children in communities throughout the United States since 1896. As the nation’s largest and most respected human service organization they serve 2 million people in 400 communities in 46 states each year. Volunteers of America–Greater New York is the largest affiliate of the national organization, with more than 90 programs and 1,300 staff in the metropolitan New York area, Westchester, Nassau, and Northern New Jersey. To learn more about Volunteers of America visit https://www.voa-gny.org/

We would like to thank each employee for participating in this H5G’s Gives Back campaign! Your kindness will lead to many smiles for children this holiday season. High 5 Games is constantly looking for ways to help others, so make sure to comment in the conversation bubble located on the top right of the blog post and let us know what you have done to help others around you!

Congratulations to the winners of H5C’s Holiday Traditions Contest!

h5c_contest_holiday_winners_wallpost_v2Drumroll please! The winners’ list for H5C’s Holiday Tradition Contest is here! On December 2nd, we invited our High 5 Casino players to submit a contest entry telling us about a favorite holiday tradition and why it is so important to them. We received thousands of submissions with wonderful unique holiday traditions that sure put us into the holiday spirit! While we can’t share them all with you here, enjoy a few great ones below:

Nancy P. – North Tonawanda, New York USA
During the month of December, my children and I get together at my house and must make our homemade cutout cookies. We must make at least 500 cookies and then for a few days sit and decorate each one. We always must give the family members a container of these cookies which they know were made with love. While we are together doing these cookies, we have the special time talking about the past xmas’s with the funniest stories ever. This is truly a must each year to continue the holiday feeling.

Cherie B. – Oswestry, Shrewsbury United Kingdom
Every year since my first daughter was born my husband has taken her to buy stocking fillers for me. Once they were bought I would join them for lunch and a drink this is a day that we all love and it has become our tradition.

Erminia J. – Ottawa, Ontario Canada
Every year, we would invite over thirty relatives for Christmas dinner in our small apartment. It may have been super cozy but it sure was fun! The cooks would bring in their signature dishes and I would do my annual thing. What was my annual thing? Wreck something! Burn the mashed potatoes, over salt the salads, forget a layer for the lasagna, get a big boned turkey with little meat or not enough drinks. My annual thing also had a name. Erminia’s Annual Freakout Stressout! Breathe-it’s ok.

Mario V. – El Cajon, California USA
Well to start this holiday tradition we like to go hand cut a Christmas tree, me my wife and now my son. We started this tradition with my parents a few years back but since our son was born it’s been way more interesting and exciting for us, he loves to be outside so it works out perfectly. Anyways, when it comes down to picking the perfect tree my wife has to inspect it to make sure it’s perfect, of course, then we take a picture by it and I begin the cutting. I will keep this tradition going forever!

Marvin T. – Granite Falls, Minnesota USA
We would always decorate our Christmas tree on Christmas eve, listening to music, snacking on treats and playing a few board games. Then we would all camp in the living room sleeping around the tree. Waking up the next morning to find presents piled high under the tree. (Sometime during the night our parents made the miracle happen). A tradition that I have held over the years and one my children have adopted. A Christmas miracle…

Make sure to check if you are one of the 200 lucky winners today in the list below! All winners will receive 200K coins and an exclusive 2017 High 5 Casino Calendar that will arrive within 2-4 weeks! Congratulations to you all!

Samantha W.
My favorite holiday tradition is baking Italian Cookies with my maternal grandmother. My grandma’s parents were immigrants from Italy. When my great grandma passed, she left a cookbook filled with cookie recipes she would make growing up in the small town of Bologna. While we make many different types of Italian Christmas Cookies, my two favorites are: Pizzelle Cookies and Italian Anisette Cookies which both put me in the holiday spirit!

Logan M.
My favorite holiday tradition during the holidays is to gather around my aunt’s house with all my cousins. I come from a large closeknit family. The atmosphere is very loving whilst cracking jokes, playing various games, and just being around the ones who cherish you the most. Plus, the gifts we get each other are usually hilarious!
