Cool Casino of the Month: Golden Nugget Las Vegas

Cool-Casino-of-the-Month_2
Spinning at High 5 Casino or Shake the Sky Casino is plenty of fun, but sometimes you’ve got to get out and head to a real casino. Every month we’ll be highlighting a different land-based casino that you should visit if you’re ever in the area or ready for a trip.

Q: What’s the largest luxury hotel and casino in downtown Las Vegas? A: The Golden Nugget Las Vegas, which is February’s Cool Casino of the Month!

It’s easy to make terrible decisions in Las Vegas, but one choice you won’t regret making is staying at the Golden Nugget Las Vegas. The Golden Nugget has been open since 1946, and currently features hundreds of slots – including plenty from High 5 Games – and dozens of table games spread out over 38,000 square feet. When you’re tired of gambling you can head back to one of the Golden Nugget’s 2,419 rooms and suites, which are spread out over four towers, and take a quick nap. Shoppers can indulge at one of the Golden Nugget’s exclusive stores, and those who like to be pampered can be spoiled with spa and salon services. If you’re more interested in partying, then check out The Tank – a heated year-round pool complete with a shark tank, three-story waterslide, and private cabanas – and the Golden Nugget’s variety of bars and lounges. Of course, no matter what type of person you are you’re going to have to eat eventually, and that’s when the Golden Nugget’s seven different restaurants come in handy.

Even if you’ve never been to Las Vegas, you’ve probably seen the Golden Nugget; it’s been featured in television shows, games, and movies like the 1971 James Bond film Diamonds Are Forever and the 2006 movie Smokin’ Aces.

If you’re anywhere in New Jersey, you can spin 18 premium H5G slots – including Cave King, Valkyrie Queen, Rocket Man, Sirens, and Jaguar Princess – for real money from your laptop, tablet, or phone through Golden Nugget’s online casino.

What’s your favorite casino to visit? In between now and your next vacation, get your slot fix at High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky Casino.

Cool Casino of the Month: Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City

Cool-Casino-of-the-Month_2
Spinning at High 5 Casino or Shake the Sky Casino is plenty of fun, but sometimes you’ve got to get out and head to a real casino. Every month we’ll be highlighting a different land-based casino that you should visit if you’re ever in the area or ready for a trip.

If you’re a slot lover on the east coast, consider a trip to Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City the next time you have time to spare and some money burning a hole in your pocket. There you’ll find over 2,000 hotel rooms to go along with more than 120,000 square feet of gaming space, which translates to over 3,000 slot machines – including plenty of slots from High 5 Games – and 135 table games. In between bouts of gambling, you can visit The Quarter, a shopping mall located in the complex, or head out to enjoy Atlantic City’s boardwalk and beach. Party people can hit up one of Tropicana’s bars or clubs once the sun sets, while those looking for a more relaxing evening can enjoy one of the Trop’s 11 restaurants, then take in a show at its 2,000-seat showroom, comedy club, or IMAX theater. No matter your mood or inclination, there’s something fun for you to get into here.

Fans of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire have even more incentive to visit Tropicana Casino & Resort Atlantic City: Mickey Duffy, the inspiration for Boardwalk’s incredibly annoying Mickey Doyle, was murdered at The Ambassador Hotel (which later became the Trop) as he slept in 1931. Morbid but true.

If you’re anywhere in New Jersey, you can spin H5G slots for real money from your laptop, tablet, or phone through www.tropicanacasino.com. Tropicana’s online casino features 16 top-notch H5G games like Double Da Vinci Diamonds, The Amulet and the Charm, Golden Knight, Shadow of the Panther, and Dangerous Beauty.

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

Players are always asking us where they can find their favorite High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky slots in real casinos. We know that our Facebook casinos are a great time, but we can appreciate that there’s no experience that matches the thrill of being in a real, live casino. For this reason, we’re very excited to announce that 10 new games from High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky Casino will be making their way to land-based casinos in the future, courtesy of Bally Technologies.

The great games that will be debuting on casino floors are Gypsy, Madame Monarch, Pasión y Fuego, Foxy Dynamite, Valkyrie Queen, Palace of Magic, Zen Panda, Night Jasmine, Silk & Steel, and MISS UNIVERSE Crowning Moment.

Make sure to keep an eye on the High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky fan pages for updates on when these fan-favorite games will be released. Which of our other social games would you like to see in your local casino? Let us know in the comments below!

H5G Inks Historic Expanded Agreement with Bally Technologies

H5G_Bally_403x403

Mere months after the first H5G-Bally games hit the market, Bally Technologies and High 5 Games have struck a deal to significantly increase their land-based partnership over the coming years. The new agreement will call for High 5 Games to produce more games than ever for Bally, in addition to the games already promised from their 2012 contract.

So why the expanded agreement? Basically, H5G and Bally decided to work together more after the two companies came together to release some of 2013’s most popular, beautiful, and innovative slot machines. Titles like Shadow Diamond, Golden Tower, Ocean’s Glory, and Stella Drive and the Orb of Chance premiered first on High 5 Casino and later in land-based casinos to much fanfare. It’s sort of like how if you baked some delicious chocolate and peanut butter cookies, and your friends gobbled them up quickly, next time you’d decide to make an even bigger batch of the same recipe, instead of switching to chocolate and anchovies or peanut butter and glass shards or something less desirable.

High 5 Games has retained the exclusive online, social, and mobile rights to the games called for in the new agreement, which means you’ll be able to find the cool new H5G-Bally games on High 5 Casino and elsewhere online!
