Slot Fundamentals: Enduring Bonuses

Slot Fundamentals is a column we’ll be running occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with Enduring Bonuses, which are types of bonus rounds found in some of our games.

The allure of a high-paying bonus round is one of the biggest reasons slots are so much fun. Slot players never know if their next spin is going to be the one that leads to a bunch of free chances to hit a huge jackpot. High 5 Games is dedicated to creating the most innovative titles on the market, which is why the company created Enduring Bonuses, which are twists on the traditional bonus round. But how exactly do Enduring Bonuses work?

There are two types of Enduring Bonuses, and they can both be best understood by defining them in contrast to typical bonus rounds. In a typical bonus round, players are awarded a certain number of free spins, after which the round ends. By contrast, Enduring Bonuses end when some other condition is met. In the Enduring Bonus in Dream Beauty, bonus rounds don’t end until players have scored a certain number of wins. When players land a win with the main character, their win counter goes up, not down (i.e. from 2 to 3 instead of 2 to 1). In Pasión y Fuego’s Enduring Bonus, the free games last until either three or four wilds lock into place in the middle reels, depending on how the bonus round was triggered. Enduring Bonuses tend to lead to higher-paying, longer-lasting bonus rounds, and they guarantee that players receive at least a few wins. Look for Enduring Bonuses in High 5 Casino games Dream Beauty and Pasión y Fuego and Shake the Sky games Golden Horse and Enchanted Beauty, which is coming later this week!

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

High 5 Games Help Desk

Every couple of weeks Elaine, High 5 Blog’s CRM correspondent, will stop by to discuss ways to optimize your High 5 Casino and/or Shake the Sky experience.

Hey there, High 5-ers! I hope you’re all having a wonderful first few days of spring! This week, I’m going to answer some common questions, and hopefully resolve some confusion, about a few of our payouts.

1. How Does the Lobby Slot Pay Out?

The lobby slot is the main way to unlock new games, but it can also help you rack up H5C or STS cash. If you get three 7s, 5s, or symbols from a game you’ve already unlocked, then you win some credits. Your payout relates to your player level – the higher your player level is, the more H5C or STS cash you’ll get for every win!

2. The Cat Prince Multiplier

Cat Prince offers players the opportunity for huge wins with its multiplier feature. If any of the major symbols (the two cats, the staff, the necklace, or the Cat Prince himself) covers the entirety of any three or more consecutive reels, and is part of a winning combination, then a 2X, 3X, or 5X multiplier is awarded. Careful, though! The wild symbol is not a part of this feature, so to get the multiplier you must cover the reels entirely with an actual major symbol — the wild cannot substitute.

3. Dream Beauty Left to Right/Right to Left Payouts

The specific symbol for the Dream Beauty pays out for winning combinations starting on the far-left reel and moving right, and for winning combinations starting on the far-right reel and moving left. However, this special feature only applies to the princess. All other symbols only pay out when they are part of a winning combination that begins on the far-left reel.

We hope this clears up some of your payout confusion. Are there any other games with payouts that confuse you? Is there anything else you’d like us to tackle next time? In the meantime, good luck and happy spinning!
