Employee Spotlight – Carrie M!

h5c_employeespotlight_carrie_blogpost

Have you ever wondered who the brilliant mind behind the descriptions of our amazing games like Flower Bride, Red Panda Palace, and Sailing the 7 Skies is? Meet Carrie M.!

1. How long have you been working with High 5 Games?
I’ve been working at High 5 Games for a little over two years.

2. Please tell us what you do, as Marketing Communications Lead for High 5 Games?
Visit the High 5 Casino website and search for a game. Then scroll to the bottom and read the game description. I write those! Additionally, I write weekly and monthly newsletters. and other copy related tasks.

3. As Lead for Marketing Communications, what is your favorite part of your job?
I really enjoy coming up with a backstory for our slot games. As a writer, it’s fun connecting games’ symbols with my creativity. I get to connect character symbols… make them fall in love or connect them as spies on a mission or anything really!

4. You write the game descriptions for many of our games, tell us about the process and where you get your amazing ideas from?
First I play the slot game. I really enjoy playing slot games so this is my favorite part. Then I take a break. After a break, I spin some more! I pretty much spin until I feel inspired. This could take up to a day or two, sometimes more. Once I know the direction I’d like to take, I write! The ideas come from the games! Not for nothing but our games are pretty awesome!

5. Which game description, that you’ve written, is your favorite? Why?
The game hasn’t been released yet so I’m not sure I can divulge that information. However, I will say this… prepare for suspense, thrills, and a lot of fun. I really enjoyed writing the game description for this particular slot because it’s fun and suspenseful!

6. What is your favorite game on High 5 Casino and why?
Having 170+ games does not make this an easy question. I’m in between Triple Raven and Triple Hoot. I must have a thing for the feature since both games have the feature Triple Symbols :)!

7. How long does it take you to come up with descriptions for the games?
Can you tell us what goes into it? It depends on the game. Some games are a bit more straight-forward while others give us the chance to be more creative.

8. Where is your favorite place to travel and why?
I love traveling everywhere! One of my 2016 resolutions was to travel as much as possible. So far parts of my heart stayed in New Orleans, Louisiana, and in Santa Teresa, Brazil.

9. If you weren’t in the Marketing Communications field, what other profession would you have chosen?
I most likely would’ve focused on being a children’s book writer.

10. If you could work with a famous author, dead or alive, who would it be?
I would’ve loved to work with Kurt Vonnegut. I love his writing style, especially in his novel, Slaughterhouse-Five.

11. If you could be a High 5 Casino game character who would you like to be? Why?
I’d like to be the girl in Aegean Sunset or the kitty cat in Curious Kingdom! Both look cheerful and fun!

Slot Factoids!

H5C_SlotFactoids_WallPostSlot Factoid is back! In the previous edition, we included some fascinating facts such as the number of slot machines and hotel rooms in Las Vegas and the cost of the first Jackpot Machine.

Today at High 5 Blog, we’ll continue sharing some interesting and important facts about slot machines with our slot lovers.

Fact #5 Slot machines didn’t always give out cash prizes!
Slot machines had become a fixture in several drinking establishments, and during Prohibition in the late 19th and early 20th century, alcohol and gambling were made illegal across the United States. This meant that in order to keep up with the time, Slot machines were “replaced” with fruit machines. These machines dispensed fruit candies and gum instead of cash prices. However, Speakeasies were not only places where patrons could enjoy alcohol illegally, they could also enjoy the original slot machines!

Fact 6# You’ll never believe this about the Las Vegas Strip!
Did you know that the Famous Las Vegas Strip is not located within the city limits of Las Vegas! The strip actually comes under the jurisdiction of Clark County!

Capture Feature Battle

h5c_blog_gamefeaturebattles_capture

Blog’s feature battle is on. In today’s blog, we are featuring the Capture Feature. With this special feature, players rack up big wins in the bonus rounds. In the middle spot on the middle reel, this feature will ‘capture’ any character that falls into its grasp. If any of the main characters fall prey, the player will win whatever amount of credits is in that character’s respective credit meter. Because it’s a progressive feature, if you capture a character more than once, you will get even more bonus credits each time. Vote for your favorite game with the Capture Feature: Cherry Mischief, Prince of Lightning, and The Mighty Atlas.

Cherry Mischief:
As the sun sets, the fairies have their fun. In the company of fireflies, they fill the woods with their mischief and magic. Few have witnessed this spellbinding sight, but if you catch yourself in the right place at the right time, it’s an enchanting experience you will never forget.

Prince of Lightning:
An apocalyptic blast has left the world in darkness. There is blind chaos – a society with no law, no order. But one civilization has survived thanks to a man who has the supernatural ability to illuminate the city. The fate of this metropolis is left in the hands of The Prince of Lightning.

The Mighty Atlas:
Atlas was the Titan who held up the heavens. The powerful, enduring figure and his story has survived millenniums for the image it portrays – a man giving his everything, sometimes struggling to get the job done. But for all his struggles, you never see him fail. It is these virtues – strength and perseverance – that are captured in the new hit slot machine game, The Mighty Atlas.

Slot Factoids!

H5C_SlotFactoids_WallPost

Slot Factoid is back! In the previous edition, we included some fascinating facts such as the inventor of the first slot machine and the biggest jackpot in history. Today at High 5 Blog, we’ll continue sharing some interesting and important facts about slot machines with our slot lovers.

Fact #3
If you live in Las Vegas and you’re a slot machine lover, then you’re lucky. Las Vegas is among one of the cities with huge amount of slot machines. The ratio is about an estimated machine for every eight people living in the city. The total number of slot machines in Vegas is about 170,000 while there are only approximately 62,000 hotel rooms.

Fact #4
The first jackpot was only 50 cents back in the 1894. To put this into perspective, 50 cents back then could buy you two tooth soaps or about 3 pounds of coffee. However, a progressive jackpot these days could award you up to millions of dollars.
