Slot Fundamentals: Hi-Lo Stacks Bonus

Slot-Fundamental_Hi_Lo_Stack
Slot Fundamentals is a column we run occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with Hi-Lo Stacks Bonuses, an innovative new feature.

Lots of slot games have bonus rounds, but if you want unique, exciting free games then you have to spin High 5 Games slots. We’ve put plenty of twists on the bonus round already – like Collection Bonuses, Enduring Bonuses, and Bonus Select – and now we’ve come up with another fun feature: Hi-Lo Stacks Bonuses!

When you trigger the free games in a Hi-Lo Stacks Bonus game, before you start spinning you blindly pick one major symbol and one minor symbol to be Super Stacked for the duration of the bonus round. These Super Stacked symbols increase the potential for huge blowout wins with stunning animated graphics. Check out Hi-Lo Stacks Bonuses in High 5 Casino games like Guitar Kings, Rev It Up, and Parfum Adore.

We hope you found that helpful, and that you land some major jackpots with Hi-Lo Stacks Bonuses! What’s your favorite bonus feature? What would you us to explain in the future?

Player Spotlight

h5c_player_spotlight_1200
High 5 Blog’s newest column features interviews with High 5 Casino players. The inaugural edition spotlights loyal, longtime High 5-er Ellie Morin.

1. How did you hear about High 5 Casino?
I played High 5 Games’ Da Vinci Diamonds slot at DoubleDown, and loved it so much I researched who the maker of the game was. I saw your ad on the sidebar of Facebook one day, clicked on it, and have been an avid fan ever since. I began playing the day you opened your doors.

2. What’s your go-to game on H5C?
Magic Orchid is my go-to because it’s a game that doesn’t have a lot of empty spins and I can usually win enough to get me back in the game.

3. What’s your favorite H5C game of all time?
I have to say Gypsy. I love the theme, the music, and the colors. It’s upbeat, and the animation of the wagon flying across the screen after a big win gets my heart pumping!

4. What are your favorite game features?
You can win a lot during free games so I love features like the Collection Bonus and the Enduring Bonus.

5. If you could hang out with any character from one of our games, who would it be?
Gypsy. I’d ask her to read my beads! I’d also want her to take me for a ride in that wild wagon of hers!

6. If you could be a High 5 Casino character, who would you like to be?
I’d like to be the main character in the new Thunder Road game. I think riding a motorcycle at my age would be a hoot.

7. If you could couple up two characters from our games, who would you marry off?
I would introduce The Cat Prince to The Empress Josephine. They’d be perfect together.

8. Which High 5 Casino game do you feel the luckiest with?
Good question – my luckiest game is Dr. Amante. He knows what it takes to make me happy.

9. Which H5C game has the best bonus in your opinion?
Thunder Road has been very good to me. The multiple bonus options pay well.

10. Which High 5 Casino game do you think has the best sound package?
I love the sound in Gypsy because the music builds up with each spin, and it’s great when the win comes and the wagon shows up. I also love the music in The Charleston because it’s an original score and it’s very upbeat.

Game Preview: Zhi Nu

Take a sneak peek at Zhi Nu, which premieres later this week as the 41st slot at Shake the Sky Casino!

Once upon a time, a humble cow herder named Niu Lang spotted Zhi Nu, the daughter of a goddess, as she was washing herself by a lake. The pair fell in love, but when Zhi Nu’s mother found out she banished her daughter back to the heavens, separating them forever. Once a year, the magpies of the world take pity on the two lovers, and form a bridge in the stars so they can be reunited for one special night. Experience this famous Chinese tale in Zhi Nu, part of the Romance Series from High 5 Games.

Zhi Nu has exciting gameplay to back up its beautiful theme and art design. Super Stacks and an Enduring Bonus help you score amazing jackpots as you witness a tale of love and loss.

¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

Cinco De Mayo_403x403
Is it sad that I took four years of Spanish in high school, and still had to use Google Translate to make sure the title for this post was correct? Probably. But regardless, nothing is going to get me down on Cinco de Mayo, not even the fact that it falls on a Monday, which means I may be in a bit of a margarita haze at work tomorrow. We here at High 5 Games hope you have a great day filled with cervezas (I remembered that word), tasty food, and, of course, High 5 Casino. Here are a few half-baked suggestions for fun H5C slots to play today:

Pasión y Fuego

PasionyFuego_Milestone
The finely manicured lawns, gleaming cars, and opulent houses in this neighborhood do not tell the entire story. Beneath the pristine surface, drama lurks, waiting to bubble to the surface. Years of wicked schemes and treachery threaten to tear one family apart, while two desperate lovers struggle to overcome deception, betrayal and temptation. When life gets this intense, nothing can quell the Pasión y Fuego! Clusterbucks and an Enduring Bonus lead to big wins in this exciting game, which has a Spanish title and is therefore perfect for today.

The Lovely Outlaws

LovelyOutlaws_Milestone_843x403
These gun-toting ladies are the most wanted outlaws west of the Mississippi. With a new set of warrants out for their arrest, they’re storming into town and looking for a showdown with the sheriff. Swing on through the doors of the drinking saloon, take a seat, and order yourself a whiskey. Because these sharp shootin’ ladies are riding through at high noon with business to settle, and you do not want to miss it. Tumbling Reels and Connected Lines create thrilling wins in this high-octane game! And the ladies all wear sombreros, which is why we’re recommending it today.

ObaCarnaval_Milestone_843x403
Don’t worry, we’re aware that Mexico and Brazil are two very different countries, but we chose this slot because it’s a game about celebration. Carnaval in Brazil is like no other celebration in the world. Elaborate costumes, sizzling samba music, and non-stop fun, the world’s largest party is simply unstoppable. Let loose, take to the streets, and watch as the sights and sounds of Rio come to life! Split Symbols and Scatter Pays generate enormous jackpots that will make you want to keep the party going!

Game Spotlight: Enchanted Beauty

STS_EnchantedBeauty_Milestone
Today’s post comes from High 5 Blog correspondent Ali.

Enchanted Beauty released to Shake the Sky yesterday, making it the 24th game available at the Facebook casino. This brand new slot title features Clusterbucks and an Enduring Bonus, two features we encourage you to read more about in our recent Slot Fundamentals posts. The Enduring Bonus in Enchanted Beauty lasts until three Wild symbols are locked into place in the middle reels, so there are plenty of opportunities to win in the free games bonus!

Enchanted Beauty tells the tale of a beautiful young woman who is trapped in the center of an intricate labyrinth, entranced by the magic of an evil warlock. She needs the single gold key to release her from the tangle in which she is kept. The maze around her is a fascinating world filled with colorful unicorns, divine fairies, a mythical centaur, and otherworldly creatures that are all trying to save her.

Enchanted Beauty was created by H5G’s Red Gold art studio. H5G animator Kori shared her thoughts on this game with us:

“Since I started as an animator at High 5 Games, I’ve wanted to work on a game that had unicorns or fairies. When I found myself working on a game that has both, I was beyond excited. Sparkles are also one of my favorite things to create, so when Enchanted Beauty came along, I didn’t hold back.”

We hope you find Enchanted Beauty to be just as magical and exciting as we do! What type of games would you like to see us make in the future? Check out Enchanted Beauty at Shake the Sky Casino today.

Ringing In the Year of the Horse

STS_GoldenHorse_Unlocked_Milestone
Happy Chinese New Year! Ever wonder why each Chinese year is named after a different animal? According to legend, the Buddha once asked every animal to meet him on New Year’s Day. Only 12 came – the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog, and pig – so he named a year after each one in attendance. Each year is said to take on traits of its animal, as are people born during that year. For example, individuals born during the Year of the Horse are considered cheerful, energetic, witty, and talented. Because apparently horses are witty.

At Shake the Sky Casino we’re celebrating the Year of the Horse by unlocking the never-before-seen slot Golden Horse for all STS players! This visually stunning game was created in the style of the celebrated Chinese artist Xu Beihong, and features majestic horses practically leaping off the screen thanks to its immersive 3D animations. Clusterbucks and an Enduring Bonus will help you ring in the Chinese New Year by winning big!

But that’s not all – we’re also giving all STS players $888 in free STS cash! Chinese culture considers eight to be one of the luckiest numbers, so you’re sure to land some serious jackpots!

Try out Golden Horse at Shake the Sky Casino.
