Game Spotlight: The Green Machine Global

h5c_green_machine_glass_1200_apple
It’s pure and simple, fast and fun. Choose your risk and your reward in The Green Machine Global, which debuts today as the 125th slot at High 5 Casino! The Green Machine Global has different gameplay mechanics than the other slots at H5C, so we asked game designer Brent to fill us in on the details:

“What you see is what you get in The Green Machine Global. Instead of paylines or ways, you can choose to bet on up to five different colors, all of which have different values – some will show up often with small wins, while others will show up less often but yield larger payouts. If one of the colors you bet on lands anywhere on the reels, you win. It’s that simple! You can play it safe, go for big jackpots, or do both, so there’s lots of flexibility for players. This is the first game that I worked on to debut at High 5 Casino, so I hope it does well and players enjoy it!”

The Green Machine Global is inspired by The Green Machine, which is one of the most popular land-based slot games of all time. We hope H5C players love our version as much as the original!

What do you think of The Green Machine Global? What type of slots would you like to see High 5 Games make in the future?

Every couple of weeks Elaine, High 5 Blog’s customer-care correspondent, stops by to discuss ways to optimize your High 5 Casino and/or Shake the Sky experience.

Ho, ho, ho everyone! I hope you’re excited for the holidays. I’ve got some tips for those of you who want to ring in the New Year playing High 5 Casino! Today I’m going to tackle a few ways you can understand the payouts at H5C.

1. See the paylines by adjusting the lines you bet

If you’ve ever wondered what the paylines are for a given game, just adjust the number of lines that you’re playing and the paylines will automatically be laid over the reels. Go all the way down to one line, and then back up to the maximum lines, to see how the paylines are added.

2. Check out the paytables for feature information

Curious about how a feature works? Just click on the paytable — located underneath the MAX button — for details. Make sure your MAX bet is turned off before doing this, though — that way a stray click doesn’t end up costing you your bankroll!

3. Ask us questions

If you’re ever curious about how a game pays, reach out to us and ask at support@high5games.com. You can also leave a comment here if there’s something you’d like me to explain.

Ok, that’s it for me and payouts this week. I hope you guys have a wonderful holiday, and I can’t wait to answer more of your questions next year! Until then, thanks for reading, good luck, and keep spinning!

Every couple of weeks Elaine, High 5 Blog’s CRM correspondent, will stop by to discuss ways to optimize your High 5 Casino and/or Shake the Sky experience.

Hey High 5-ers! It’s been a while, I’ve missed you guys! This week, I want to give you some pointers on betting and payouts for High 5 Casino.

1. Make sure you’re aware of your line bet

If you read High 5 Blog, you’re familiar with how paylines work, and you know that if you’re not betting all the paylines, you haven’t maximized your ability to win. Unfortunately, players will sometimes accidentally lower the number of lines they are playing without realizing it. Then, they’ll hit what looks like a big win only to discover that they weren’t playing the necessary lines. To avoid this type of frustration and confusion, make sure you’re aware of the number of lines you’re betting at all times.

2. Make sure you have Scatter Bucks activated

In addition to a line bet, some games give you the option to wager a side bet to activate special features, like Scatter Bucks. In Scatter Bucks games, like Golden Knight and The Amulet and the Charm, you must bet all the lines, plus the additional side bet, for the chance to see Scatter Bucks on your reels. If you do not do this, you may get very frustrated, as you miss your opportunity for big Scatter Bucks wins.

3. Watch the zeros

Some of our players have experienced confusion with the zeros when adjusting their bets. We’ve heard from players who believed they were betting $400.00 a spin, only to realize after a few spins that they were actually betting $40,000.00! To avoid a horrible surprise like that, we suggest you double check your bet before you spin or put your game on autoplay, to make sure that you aren’t accidentally betting 100x more than you intended!

With these pointers in mind, you should feel more prepared to bet wisely. And remember, if you have any questions about your bet, or your payouts, you can always email us at support@h5g.com, or comment here and I’ll be happy to cover it next time. In the meantime, good luck and happy spinning!

Slot Fundamentals: Paylines

Paylines_Screenshot_02
Slot Fundamentals is a column we’ll be running occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. The inaugural edition deals with paylines, which determine wins and can be found in many of our games.

Paylines form the backbone of most of the slots at High 5 Casino and Shake the Sky. Put simply, they’re the guiding force behind your big wins. But how exactly do they work? Jeremy, an H5G software engineer, was kind enough to provide a history lesson and an explanation of paylines:

“Many of the very first slot machines, sometimes referred to as ‘fruit machines,’ traditionally had only three reels, each showing one symbol at a time. The object of these old-fashioned slots was to line up three of the same symbol in a row, making a line across the reels. As technology advanced and companies like High 5 Games sought to innovate on these primitive slots, slot machine games began to show larger grids of symbols at once. To keep these games aligned with the tradition of slot machines past, the concept of paylines arose, in which players are able to bet on one or more different ways of drawing ‘lines’ between symbols from left to right across the grid of symbols. Some are horizontal, and some zig-zag up and down, and players have the chance of winning big money by lining up symbols on each one! To see these paylines in action on High 5 Casino and Shake The Sky, try hitting the left and right arrows above the box marked ‘LINES;’ as you do so, you’ll see each payline which you’re betting on overlaid in a different color.”

So, there you have it. In the next edition of this column, we’ll be explaining ‘ways,’ an alternative to paylines that is found in some of our games. Which slot fundamentals would you like to see us explain in the future?
