4th Anniversary Birthday Bash

h5c_4thbdaybash_freecoins_wallpost2

September is a very special month for High 5 Casino and this year we celebrated bigger than ever with our 4th Anniversary Birthday Bash! We turn four today, September 10th, and this year we’re celebrating with 4 days of spectacular promotions!

Let’s look back at some special High 5 Casino moments in 2016:

Gifting!
In April, High 5 Casino launched a highly anticipated Gifting feature. Players now have the ability to send/receive 5 coin gifts to/from their friends each day! And whenever friends claim a gift that you sent them, you receive a “Thank you Bonus”!

Daily Wheel!
In July, High 5 Casino launched the Daily Bonus Wheel. With the Daily Wheel, players have another way to test their luck, by spinning a wheel filled with free coins at High 5 Casino! The power is in the players’ hands so, along with the coins won on the Daily Wheel, they can also enjoy a Return Bonus and Friend Bonus which boosts their winnings!

Jackpots!
This summer High 5 Casino also launched a Jackpot feature open to all players. A minimum bet of 10,000 coins grants players the opportunity to win one of the three Jackpot Tiers – Minor, Major and Grand! To win a Jackpot, all players need to do is land on three or more Jackpot symbols in that jackpot game. Debuting Jackpot games Golden Knight, Valkyrie Queens and Gypsy were joined by The Vanishing Act, Cat Gangster, Tales of Hercules and Thundering Buffalo which was added during our 4th Anniversary Birthday Bash to bring the total of Jackpot games to seven!

VIP Coin Store!
The VIP Coin Store, placed players into one of seven VIP tiers (Silver, Gold, Platinum, Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald and Diamond) based on player activity. Each VIP level offers special coin store package options that just keep getting bigger and better. To move up in VIP level, all players have to do is make a purchase(s), come back every day, and send gifts to friends. Stay tuned for more exciting enhancements to the VIP Coin Store!

Fundraising Events!
High 5 Casino and our players love to spread love to those who need it. Check out some past fundraising events we hosted at High 5 Casino:

Employee Spotlight – Anthony R.

H5C_EmployeeSpotlightAnthonyR_BlogPost

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!

While we can’t share them all with you here, enjoy a few great ones below:

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.
