Top-Five High 5 Casino Games EVER

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: Scatter Bucks

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

On a typical slot game, as the reels stop spinning and the symbols settle you can usually tell if you’ve scored a win via paylines or ways. If the symbols don’t match up properly, you’re basically out of luck. High 5 Games is not content to just make typical slots, though, which is why the company invented Scatter Bucks, a feature that can lead to big wins even on spins when the reels don’t align. But how exactly do Scatter Bucks work?

Scatter Bucks are activated by placing a side bet in addition to betting on paylines. With Scatter Bucks, some wild symbols will also display random credit values – anywhere from 10x to 5,000x the bet multiplier! Land these symbols and the winnings will automatically be awarded to you. It’s that simple. Look for Scatter Bucks in High 5 Casino games like The Amulet and the Charm and Golden Knight, and Shake the Sky Casino games like Golden Peony.

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

Game Spotlight: Sultan of Mars

Sultan of Mars is the latest game to premiere at High 5 Casino! This week’s release comes unlocked for all players, which means you don’t have to wait on Lady Luck to visit you at the lobby slot before you start racking up otherworldly wins! This isn’t especially relevant, but I’d just like to say that the Sultan in this slot has the coolest headwear I think I’ve ever seen in my life. I’d love to wear something like it someday, but I’m not even cool enough to pull off a baseball cap, so it would probably end in embarrassment.

It may seem difficult to believe, but some of the most beautiful characters you’ll ever see in a casino game share a screen with goblins, mutants, and aliens in Sultan of Mars. This slot takes the player to a distant planet where resources are plentiful, but so is danger; it’s up to you to protect your love and escape with the alien treasure. Sultan of Mars includes Stacked Wilds and Scatter Bucks, a feature that gives players another way to win! Special scatter symbols, displaying credit values that are multiples of the player’s total bet, can fall anywhere on the first four reels. When the Scatter Bucks activation symbol lands on the fifth reel, all the credit values on the first four reels are immediately distributed to the player!

High 5 Games Help Desk

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!
