Frank is my 5 year old PUG, ,born Jan 23 2013.. Frank is our ” Door Greeter”, always with a bone in his mouth ,waiting for you to ask if you can have it. With a mumbled growl, he just walks off as if to say” Yeah right” . Frank is well known in H5 chat. The new Pug game that was recently released, fast became known as ” The Frank Game”. He is very entertaining, full of energy and well behaved. Its difficult to choose just 1 photo for this contest, as I have 100’s

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 Spotlight: Night Jasmine at High 5 Casino

Night_Jasmine_1200_1200_UNLOCKED_banners
Shake the Sky fan favorite Night Jasmine is now UNLOCKED for all players as the 113th slot at High 5 Casino. Below, High 5 Blog correspondent Nikita breaks down all the reasons why you should check out Night Jasmine at H5C.

I’ll admit it, I’m a hopeless romantic. So when I saw Night Jasmine, and heard its back story, for the first time, I instantly fell in love. Trust me, there’s a lot to love about this game.

First, the story rocks. Bound within the confines of the palace during the day due to her over-protective father, a young princess yearns to escape. At night, however, she’s able to briefly experience freedom and privacy in her secret garden. This magical place – filled with songbirds, playful frogs, and beautiful flowers — is her only refuge from a lonely, sheltered life. One fateful night, the alluring scent of a night jasmine flower draws her close, and when it suddenly transforms into a prince, her life is forever changed.

Second, the game’s artwork is absolutely GORGEOUS! Yes, so gorgeous that it warrants ALL CAPS. CRAP, NOW MY CAPS LOCK IS STUCK… There we go. When you play Night Jasmine, you’ll instantly see that it’s unlike any other game on High 5 Casino. And that’s intentional: Night Jasmine is the first slot from High 5 Games designed utilizing the traditional Asian paper-cut style. And by using rich hues of blue, red, yellow, and green, H5G’s Red Gold studio is able to truly capture the essence of a night spent in Southeast Asia.

Last but not least, the gameplay is stellar. Fans of Gypsy will fall in love with Night Jasmine’s 243 ways to win and Split Symbols, which make it possible to win up to 10 of a kind in just one spin! The retriggerable bonus round makes the playing experience even more exciting and gives players even more opportunities to score mega payouts!

I could go on and on about this game, but why not see for yourself? Night Jasmine is already one of my favorite games, and I’m sure it will soon make it to the top of your list as well. Give it a spin at High 5 Casino and I promise you won’t be disappointed!

Top-Five High 5 Casino Games EVER

H5C_Top5GamesEver_1200x1200
Every month here at High 5 Blog we compile stats from High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky Casino, but today we have something special to share: The top-five games of all-time at H5C! There are 100+ premium slots at High 5 Casino, so if a game made the top five it must be truly loved by our players. Without further ado, here’s the list:

1. Secrets of the Forest

Secrets of the Forest takes players to a soothing and charming place where imagination is encouraged and dreams are realized. While in this enchanting world they play with mystical characters and win big with Tumbling Reels and Connected Lines.

2. Hoot Loot

Sometimes, a forest in the dead of night can be downright scary. It’s dark, there are strange noises, and who knows what’s lurking. But in this forest of fun, players are guaranteed to have a good time. Hoot Loot is a casino classic for its endearing characters and its ground-breaking features: the Hoot Line and the Hoo’s Safe Bonus.

3. The Amulet and the Charm

Need a little good fortune? Want to find the luckiest charm of them all? Look no further than The Amulet and the Charm. This High 5 Games hit takes players into a world of fantasy, where mysterious characters seek the precious amulet and all the wealth that comes with it. It’s celebrated for its great music, dramatic storytelling, and fun features like Scatter Bucks and Stacked Wilds.

4. Vivaldi’s Seasons

The hope of spring. The power of summer. The beauty of autumn. The chill of winter. The seasons resonate with people, as does the classic work by the great Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi. In this homage to the legendary musician from three centuries ago, H5G has created a striking new hit complete with Super Stacks and the Pick-A-Super-Stack feature.

5. Gypsy

She roams the countryside, her supernatural wagon illuminating a path for her band of devoted followers. Villages far and wide know her by name. Get on the good side of the gypsy, and anything may be granted to you – wealth, status, even knowledge of the future. Get on her bad side, and you’ll soon discover the true extent of her powers. Players love Gypsy because they score major jackpots with Split Symbols.

Slot Fundamentals: Split Symbols

Slot-Fundamental_SplitSymbols
Slot Fundamentals is a column we run occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with Split Symbols, a popular feature that can be found in many of our games.

In a three by five reel slot game, one would assume that there can be no larger than a five-symbol win on the reels at any given time. One might also take far too long to figure out the basic math involved in the preceding sentence, but that is neither here nor there. High 5 Games, never content to simply churn out run-of-the-mill content, disproves that assumption with its innovative feature Split Symbols. But how exactly do Split Symbols work?

Split Symbols give players the chance to get up to 10 symbols (as opposed to five) on any given line, because any one spot can contain two symbols. This means that you can hit it twice as big in a Split Symbols game as in a regular game! Look for Split Symbols in High 5 Casino games like Desert Rose, Gypsy, and Shadow of the Panther and Shake the Sky games like Cirque Chinois, Fortune Cat Fever, and Split Dragon.

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

Lucky Horse, City of Lights, Soaring Wings, and Jazz Debut at H5C Mobile

H5C_Mobile-Update_LH_CL_1200x1200
Four premium H5G slots made their way to High 5 Casino for iOS last week: Lucky Horse, City of Lights, Soaring Wings, and Jazz. Two of these titles – Lucky Horse and City of Lights – are unlocked for all players right off the bat! There are now 44 amazing games to play on the go at High 5 Casino Mobile!

Lucky Horse is a slot worth betting on, especially while we’re in the midst of Triple Crown season. Win big with Stacked Wilds, Connected Lines, and Horizontal Expanding Wilds as you cheer your horse on in the race of a lifetime. City of Lights lets you stroll through Paris, taking in the dazzling sights while snagging serious jackpots with Split Symbols and Scatter Awards. In Soaring Wings, you can spend time with epic birds of prey and score some sky-high payouts with Split Symbols. Finally, Jazz’s combination of smooth graphics, great music, and exciting features like Wild Connections and Connected Lines will have you grooving in no time.

Gypsy was also graduated to a High Limit game in the latest version of High 5 Casino Mobile. This is great news for any player who didn’t have Gypsy unlocked yet, because in addition to not having player level-based maximum bet limits, High Limit games come unlocked for all players. Between Gypsy, Lucky Horse, and City of Lights, there are now three more unlocked games available to play right now at High 5 Casino for iOS!

Make sure to head to the App Store today and download the latest version of our app; while you’re there, please leave us some feedback so we know what you love about High 5 Casino Mobile and what you’d like to see us change in the future.

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 offering my thoughts on two interesting showdowns; take the polls below and let us know what you think!

Palladium_VS_CabaretNight
The Palladium vs. Cabaret Nights

Would you rather spend an evening at The Palladium or Cabaret Nights?

If you’re not dressed to the nines and looking for a good time, don’t even bother showing up at The Palladium, the hottest night club in town. If you’re ready for the night of your life, though, this is the place for you! Unfortunately, I am very rarely ready for the night of my life, and I don’t own many nice outfits, so I think I’d rather check out Cabaret Nights. Sipping on a glass of wine in a dark, crowded tavern while waiting for a show to begin sounds much better than awkwardly dancing by myself in a night club where I feel underdressed. Plus, in my imagination Cabaret Nights is pretty cheap and has a great selection of cheeses, while The Palladium is more expensive and has really underwhelming appetizers and no cheese plates at all. When in doubt, I follow the cheese.

EDGE: Cabaret Nights

Gypsy_vs_VanishingAct_403x403
Gypsy vs. The Vanishing Act

If you were hosting a party, would you rather have Gypsy telling fortunes or the escape artist from The Vanishing Act performing tricks?

If Gypsy was at my party, I feel like it would quickly turn into a bad time. Assuming she’s telling truthful fortunes, there’s probably a lot of bad stuff in my future. I don’t want to hire her just to find out I’m going to die broke, alone, and sickly – I’d rather find out slowly on my own, like a normal person. I’m not looking to be depressed at my party, which is why I’d rather hire the escape artist from The Vanishing Act to perform tricks. He wouldn’t tell me how crappy my life was going to get. Instead, he’d just bundle himself up in ropes and locks or whatever, drop himself in a water tank, and miraculously escape. I don’t even care if he’s somehow cheating, he’s still making me feel way better than that downer of a fortune teller.

EDGE: The Vanishing Act
