Slot Factoids!

H5C_SlotFactoids_WallPostSlot Factoid is back! In the previous edition, we included some fascinating facts such as the number of slot machines and hotel rooms in Las Vegas and the cost of the first Jackpot Machine.

Today at High 5 Blog, we’ll continue sharing some interesting and important facts about slot machines with our slot lovers.

Fact #5 Slot machines didn’t always give out cash prizes!
Slot machines had become a fixture in several drinking establishments, and during Prohibition in the late 19th and early 20th century, alcohol and gambling were made illegal across the United States. This meant that in order to keep up with the time, Slot machines were “replaced” with fruit machines. These machines dispensed fruit candies and gum instead of cash prices. However, Speakeasies were not only places where patrons could enjoy alcohol illegally, they could also enjoy the original slot machines!

Fact 6# You’ll never believe this about the Las Vegas Strip!
Did you know that the Famous Las Vegas Strip is not located within the city limits of Las Vegas! The strip actually comes under the jurisdiction of Clark County!

Happy First Day of Autumn!


Happy First day of Autumn!
It’s time to break out your cozy boots, scarfs and jackets because the cool weather is officially here. We all know, Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts started offering pumpkin spice lattes at the beginning of the month but you can keep enjoying pumpkin spiced everything while participating in fall activities! Our favorite fall activities are apple and pumpkin picking and admiring the changing colors in the leaves! With Autumn in full swing and Halloween right around the corner, we’d like for you to vote for your favorite fall game.

Vivaldi’s Seasons:
Vivaldi’s seasons is a favorite throughout the year as you can travel through the hope of spring, the power of summer the chill of winter and the beauty of autumn. The seasons resonate with people, as does the classic work by the great Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi. Vivaldi’s Seasons features Super Stacks, a proven feature with slot enthusiasts. With Super Stacks, long stacks of symbols are more prone than ever to show up on reels to create big wins. The game also offers the Pick-A-Super-Stack feature, which incorporates player choice in the free games bonus.

Soaring Winds:
With the cool weather upon us Birds of Prey are stepping up their hunt as, food supply is scarce. The hunt is on. Hovering above its prey, the predator bides its time, waiting for the perfect moment to strike… Soaring Wings is a riveting slot game that depicts some of the deadliest birds in the sky as they scan the terrain below for their next meal. With a hefty top bonus of 10,000 credits for 5-of-a-kind wilds, you too can feel like you’re flying high in Soaring Wings. This game also features Split Symbols, which gives players the chance to get up to 10 symbols on any given line because any one spot can contain two symbols.

Zombie Zone:
With Halloween right around the corner and the Walking Dead season 7 premiering in October, what better way to celebrate than by playing Zombie Zone! The zombie apocalypse is upon us! The undead have arisen and are hungry for brains. Band together with other survivors and maybe you’ll stand a chance. To survive, you’ll have to fight your way out of the Zombie Zone! 4 x 6 reels. 50 paylines. Super Stacks.

Capture Feature Battle


Blog’s feature battle is on. In today’s blog, we are featuring the Capture Feature. With this special feature, players rack up big wins in the bonus rounds. In the middle spot on the middle reel, this feature will ‘capture’ any character that falls into its grasp. If any of the main characters fall prey, the player will win whatever amount of credits is in that character’s respective credit meter. Because it’s a progressive feature, if you capture a character more than once, you will get even more bonus credits each time. Vote for your favorite game with the Capture Feature: Cherry Mischief, Prince of Lightning, and The Mighty Atlas.

Cherry Mischief:
As the sun sets, the fairies have their fun. In the company of fireflies, they fill the woods with their mischief and magic. Few have witnessed this spellbinding sight, but if you catch yourself in the right place at the right time, it’s an enchanting experience you will never forget.

Prince of Lightning:
An apocalyptic blast has left the world in darkness. There is blind chaos – a society with no law, no order. But one civilization has survived thanks to a man who has the supernatural ability to illuminate the city. The fate of this metropolis is left in the hands of The Prince of Lightning.

The Mighty Atlas:
Atlas was the Titan who held up the heavens. The powerful, enduring figure and his story has survived millenniums for the image it portrays – a man giving his everything, sometimes struggling to get the job done. But for all his struggles, you never see him fail. It is these virtues – strength and perseverance – that are captured in the new hit slot machine game, The Mighty Atlas.

Employee Spotlight – Anthony R.


If you’ve ever wondered who the brilliant minds are behind our amazing games like Charming Ace, The Haunted Horsemen and The Newsmen, you’ll find the answer in High 5 Blog’s special column – Employee Spotlight! Meet Anthony R!

1. What is your role in the creation of H5G games?
I started off at High 5 Games as an animator, I also film some of our greenscreen sessions, and now work as a Technical Animator in charge of creating and managing tools for the artists so they can get all that high quality art finished easier.

2. How long have you been a part of High 5 Games?
I have been at High 5 since February 2014, so over 2 and a half years!

3. Name three games that you’re most proud of working on at High 5 Casino?
a. Out of those three games, choose your favorite game and tell us why it’s your favorite!
b. What inspired you to create the game?
c. Did the characters in the game come out like you had envisioned it would?
I was the animator and the director of photography for both Charming Ace and The Haunted Horsemen, and I really love the way those two games came out. I also animated The Newsmen and that game was really fun! If I had to choose my favorite it would be Charming Ace since my dad was in the Air Force when he was young and it was always something I admired, and because I got to take photos and film all the actors, I really got to be part of the design process from the beginning. One of the best parts of the job is that all the games we make are so different, I get a chance to play around with a whole bunch of different genres month-to-month so it’s always exciting and inspiring to start a new project, especially when it’s something as different as The Newsmen and The Haunted Horseman. I worked with an amazing Art Director and Illustrator on all those games and I think we really got the characters looking and acting the way we liked; we were a great team!

3. What is the hardest part when making a game?
The hardest part of making a game is that we make so many so quickly! Sometimes you get really attached to a theme or an art style but then you have to move on to the next one so quickly that sometimes you don’t get to do everything you always want to do.

4. What theme of games do you prefer to create? (Ex. Animal, Fantasy, Historical)
My favorite type of games are definitely the more science-fiction and fantasy type games, those are by far my favorite genres.

5. If you could be a High 5 Casino character who would you like to be? Why?
I think if I had to choose it would be cool to be someone from The Newsmen. I could be a TV reporter by day and a crime fighter by night! Also they have way better hair than I do.

6. Who/What inspired you to become an artist?
I got into art through filmmaking and through doing visual effects. I think growing up watching movies like Star Wars and TV shows like Star Trek and the X-Files really inspired me a lot. Movies definitely got me inspired to become an artist and they continue to inspire me today.

7. What is your favorite type of art? Why?
My favorite types of art are all the things I am personally terrible at. I love paintings and sculptures, I really admire the artists that can create beautiful paintings because there is no way I can! I do all my art on the computer, I can’t draw well at all!

8. If you weren’t an artist what other profession would you have chosen?
Hmmm, that’s a good question! Does someone who designs LEGO sets count as art? I would say that’s debatable… And if we’re being un-realistic, astronaut.

9. Which game on High 5 Casino is your favorite (aside from the ones you have helped create)?
Chicago is my favorite game that I didn’t have any part of at all. I really enjoyed watching the team behind that put it all together. It really came out great!

Jo M. – LaPine, OR
Destination: Belize. I would love to go back to the island to help them rebuild after the 2 disasters they have had this year. They survived a fire that destroyed a portion of downtown San Pedro, they are just recovering from Hurricane Earl. They are very compassionate & resilient, they jump in and help each other with out hesitating. I would Love to go be a part of their community in rebuilding and getting them back up on their feet and enjoying their local cuisine & hanging out with the locals🙂 .

Cheryl P. – Conway, SC
Destination: Prince Edward Island. In my younger adult years I got the opportunity to read the Anne of Green Gables series. Her way of speaking about this Island made it seem like the most beautiful place in the world. It seemed as though you could step into another world and be at peace. Sometimes, that is just what the doctor ordered in this crazy time in history.

Edith S. – Puyallup, WA
Destination: The Caribbean. I would love to meet my sister in law in Nixa, Missouri and hop on a plane and go to Tampa, Florida. From there get on a luxury cruise line like Carnival and kick back for a week. Go to Cozumel and the Cayman Islands. No worry about what is for dinner, house cleaning or laundry. I am 74 and she is 72 and seems that keeping house and raising family is all we have ever done. I want time for myself to explore what is out there. No husband just my sister in law and fun doing what we want and relaxing.

Robin E. – Galena, MO
Destination: Yellowstone National Park. There are so many natural wonders in this country that we live in. I have been to a million theme parks. I served in the military and my one dream is to see Yellowstone National Park and I would like to see it on horseback and just go for days and days and days with no cell phones, no internet and just enjoy what was put on this Earth for us.

Dikki B. – Fort Myers, FL
Destination: Napoleon, Ohio. I would go spend time with my 87 year old father, who has not been in good health for a few months. I would also spend time with my son who attends Ohio State University in Columbus. Since I retired to Florida 5 years ago, I didn’t realize how much I would miss my daddy and my son….Life is short….time flies by and I would love to be with them again for a little while.

Joseph M.
My dream vacation would be to travel to Italy. My family is from Italy and I’ve always wanted to trace back the roots of my family tree. It would be a dream come true to see the historic ruins of Rome, ride a gondola through the canals of Venice and taste the delicious pizza of Naples.

Anna D.
My dream vacation would be a trip to Hawaii! The beaches are certain to be gorgeous, and I’ll be having my favorite fruit, which is pineapple, all day long. The thing I would look forward to the most would be to go on at least one hike in Hawaii. There are numerous volcanoes, both active and nonactive, that would offer incredible views from the top!

Ting H.
I would like to travel to the Philippines; a country that has an incredible chain of tropical islands (approximately 7,000). Philippines is a paradise for underwater adventurers, specifically scuba divers like me! I would be so excited to swim with 5 meter long Thresher sharks there. I also enjoy hiking and Philippines has some of the world’s most fantastic places for hiking. Lastly, I really want to see a Mouse-Deer – a tiny animal that looks exactly like the name sounds!
