Valentine’s Day at High 5 Casino

LobbyH5C2.2_Wall_Post_ValentinesAtH5c
Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, which means different things for different people. If you’ve got a special someone, the only way they’ll know you love them is through consumer goods purchased on a corporate holiday, so be sure to splurge on the $82 dollar quintuple-tiered box of chocolates, four dozen red roses, and an $11 Hallmark card with live doves that fly out when your partner opens it. If you’re flying solo this V-Day, you should still snag that $82 dollar quintuple-tiered box of chocolates, because it’s good to love yourself. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we got to thinking about which High 5 Casino characters should couple up:

A Night of Mystery and Foxy Dynamite

The detective from A Night of Mystery and Foxy D may be operating in different time periods, but they still have a good deal in common. Most importantly, they’re both excellent detectives, so if they met they’d have a lot to chat about. Plus, both sides would have to be faithful, because you can’t get anything by either one of these people.

Wellspring and Valkyrie Queen

It’s probably hard for the Valkyrie Queen to find someone who sticks around, what with her being an immortal goddess and all. Which is why the explorer from Wellspring is perfect for her – he’d just keep refueling at the Fountain of Youth, and the pair could go out until he got so sick of her he chose to die.

When he’s not slicing into rich women who want smaller noses, Dr. Amante likes the finer things in life. The vacationing woman from Aegean Sunset certainly likes the finer things in life, too. They’d probably get together after she comes in for a totally unnecessary consultation.

Jaguar Princess and Shadow of the Panther

These two weirdos deserve each other. I imagine neither one is much of a talker, but if they could get past the awkwardness of the first few dates they’d make a perfect pair.

Royal Lion and Sapphire Tiger

Actually, these two already coupled up: where do you think Liger Loot came from?

Slot Fundamentals: The Collection Bonus

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

Slot Fundamentals is a column we run occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with the Collection Bonus, a popular feature that can be found in many H5G games.

One of High 5 Games’ most versatile features is the Collection Bonus. It has been used in many games, in many ways. You may recall the basic Collection Bonus from Woolly Mammoth, the Clue Collection Bonus from A Night of Mystery, or the C-R-O-W-N Multiplier feature from Cave King and Queen Isabella, which is also a variation of the Collection Bonus.

For the purpose of this educational post, let’s focus on the basic Collection Bonus, as seen in Woolly Mammoth, which is available for play online at High 5 Casino and at select land-based casinos. The Collection Bonus is only found in the free games bonus of Woolly Mammoth; to launch it, land three or more bonus triggers in the base game.

In the Collection Bonus, collect the letters B-O-N-U-S and you’ll be able to select a Mammoth Multiplier, which multiplies the entire total winnings of the free games. Your winnings can be multiplied anywhere from 3x to 10x, depending on what mystery Mammoth Multiplier symbol you choose at the conclusion of the bonus round.

We hope you found this helpful, and that you score some big multipliers and even bigger wins with the Collection Bonus. Any other features got you stumped? Let us know which slot fundamental you’d like us to explain in the future!

High 5 Fight Club

Today I’ll be offering my thoughts on two showdowns between four different High 5 Games slots. Take the polls below and let us know what you think!

TOH_vs_MA
Tales of Hercules vs. The Mighty Atlas

Who’d win in a fight between Hercules and The Mighty Atlas?

Atlas taking on the ancient hero Hercules (or Heracles, as he’d be known to the Titan) would make for an epic showdown. Luckily, these two actually squared off in Greek mythology, so we can use that to help us figure out who’d have the upper hand. Basically, Hercules casually held the heavens up while Atlas went to grab some apples for him from his daughters’ dragon-guarded garden that Hercules needed. Upon his return, Atlas tried to just ditch the heavens on Hercules, but good old Herc was able to trick him into taking them back upon his shoulders. So, clearly, Hercules would be able to outwit and ultimately defeat poor old Atlas if they ever met again.

EDGE: Tales of Hercules

Cyrano_&_A_Night_of_Mystery
Cyrano vs. A Night of Mystery

Who has a sweeter mustache: Cyrano or the detective from A Night of Mystery?

The mustache that the detective from A Night of Mystery is rocking is nothing to laugh at, but it’s nothing to write home about either. It’s a utilitarian ‘stache, one well suited for keeping his upper lip warm as he’s out fighting crime. Maybe even a background ‘stache, like you see in the graphic above, one that looks cooler through his ubiquitous magnifying glass. Cyrano’s mustache, on the other hand, is flamboyant, spectacular. Dude is clearly committed to an all-world flavor saver – it extends like four inches past his mouth on either side so he might even be using gel, who knows. Regardless of the specifics, Cyrano and his crumb catcher would dominate just about any other ‘stache out there in this writer’s humble opinion.

EDGE: Cyrano

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 taking a look at two different questions we’ve posed before, and offering my two cents on the matchups. Take our polls and let us know what you think!

Foxy-VS-NightMystery_403x403

Foxy Dynamite vs. A Night of Mystery

Who do you think is the better detective: Foxy Dynamite or the sleuth from A Night of Mystery?

One thing’s for sure: they’re both better detectives than me. I can barely find my keys or my wallet half the time, let alone a dangerous criminal. I have to give the edge to Foxy here, though. Just take a look at their tools, and you may agree with me. Foxy’s equipped with a big gun and a fast car, whereas the detective from A Night of Mystery has a pipe and a magnifying glass. No matter how brilliant he is, he can’t hope to keep up with Foxy and all her gadgets.

EDGE: Foxy Dynamite

CaveKing-VS-MajesticSea_403x403

Cave King vs. Majestic Sea

Would you rather take your chances with the dinosaurs from Cave King or the sharks from Majestic Sea?

This one’s easy. Sure, both dinosaurs and sharks are terrifying, but think about which scenario would be easier to escape from. If I was taking my chances with the dinosaurs from Cave King, I could at least try to run and hide under a bush, or in a tree, or something. There would be a slight chance of survival. If I was being attacked by the sharks from Majestic Sea, though, I’d be fish food in no time. There’s no swimming away from sharks. They’d probably let me tread water for a while, then eat me once they got tired of watching me cry.

EDGE: Cave King

Game Spotlight: A Night of Mystery

Night-of-Mystery_403x403
Some of our games are popular because they have particularly awesome art design. Others pick up lots of fans because their game features are especially innovative. When it comes to A Night of Mystery, though, it’s probably a little bit of both.

A Night of Mystery has proven to be a hit both in land-based casinos, where it premiered in January 2012, and at High 5 Casino, where it debuted last week. Players don’t even have to start spinning in order to realize how cool this slot is. A Night of Mystery transports gamers to a stately mansion, where a murder investigation is unfolding. One dedicated sleuth must try to figure out which of four beautiful suspects is to blame; if he can solve the case and recover what has been stolen, he’ll receive a sizable reward. Fans of Clue, Agatha Christie, or Sherlock Holmes are sure to be drawn in by A Night of Mystery – I personally think it was either the redhead in the library with the toothpick or the blonde in the bathroom with the butter knife.

On top of an awesome theme, A Night of Mystery also has some really cool gameplay. Stacked Symbols and Stacked Wilds both lead to big wins, but the most unique feature has to be the Clue Collection Bonus, which creates unforgettable bonus rounds. In the Clue Collection Bonus players can collect clues in order to turn the femme fatale suspects wild. Collecting both clues for a suspect will turn that symbol wild on reels 2 through 5 for the remainder of the bonus, and will also award 3 additional free games.

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