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!

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!

Slot Fundamentals: Super Select

Slot-Fundamental_SuperSelect
Slot Fundamentals is a column we run occasionally to help our players better understand how our games work. This edition deals with Super Select, an innovative relatively new feature.

Different from Bonus Select, one of our top-hit features, you can enjoy the Super Select feature without activating a free games round first. To activate the Super Select feature, you must trigger at least three full columns of matching Super Stack symbols on adjacent reels. Suddenly a Pick Bonus game is revealed behind the Super Stacked Columns. Your next step is to make a selection in the Pick Bonus game, and depending on which you choose, you may be awarded either a free games bonus or additional credits. With the Super Select feature, your chance to score additional wins with stunning animated graphics increases immensely.

We hope you found that helpful, and that you land some major jackpots with the Super Select feature! Make sure to check out Super Select in High 5 Casino’s popular games, Bombshell Beauties and Rum City.

Slot Fundamentals: Increasing Locked Wilds!

Slot_Fundamentals_Locked_WildsToday, High 5 Blog would like to introduce one of High 5 Games’ most popular features: Increasing Locked Wilds. Seriously, who doesn’t like wilds, especially when they keep increasing?

Increasing Locked Wilds is a feature where a single wild symbol gets locked into place, and then transforms into a double wild for the next spin. Even better, it then turns into a triple wild for the remaining spins. So what makes our players crazy about this feature? With Increasing Locked Wilds, you have higher chances of having a full screen of wilds on you reels and thus awarding you with JACKPOT wins.

This unique feature is available in Tales of Hercules and Midnight Eclipse at High 5 Casino. Make sure to get a wild in the bonus round in one of these two games and score some breathtaking wins – remember that a wild stays in place for the duration of the bonus round and increases in value on subsequent spins – from single wild to double wild to triple wild!

We hope you find this helpful and win big with Increasing Locked Wilds. Comment in the conversation bubble located on the top right of the blog and let us know which slot fundamental you’d like to see next time.

1. How did you hear about High 5 Casino?
I introduced my late husband to Facebook slots, and then he introduced me to High 5.

2. What’s your go-to game on High 5 Casino? Why?
My “go-to” game changes over time. Currently it is The Green Machine Global because it gives me a fair chance to win 100 to 250 times my wager and I have won quite a bit lately.

3. What’s your favorite High 5 Casino game of all time? Why?
My favorite game of all time is Gypsy because she is intoxicating with her mesmerizing glare. She dares you to resist her spell-binding temptations to spin a full screen of her split symbols.

4. What are your favorite game features?
My favorite features are Expanding Wilds, Split Symbols and Super Stacks.

5. If you could hang out with any character from our games for a day, which one would it be? Why?
I would hang out with Robin Hood in the Legend of Robin and Marian because one of my nick-names is Maid Marian. We could chat and laugh about our legendary characters!

6. If you could be a High 5 Casino character who would you like to be? Why?
I would like to be the Oba, Carnaval! lady because she knows how to have fun and her gaiety is infectious!

7. If you could couple up two characters from our games, who would you marry off?
I would arrange a blind date for She-Wolf and Night of The Wolf because they are a perfect match for one another.

8. Which High 5 Casino game do you feel the luckiest with?
I feel luckiest with my “go-to” game of the week. Sometimes I “go-to” Gypsy, Dr. Amante, The Green Machine Global, Mystery Train, or whichever one is hitting the most wins for me!

9. Which High 5 Casino game has the best bonus in your opinion?
The best bonuses are the ones with expanding wilds – Lucky Horse, The Charleston, Figaro, and White Falls.

10. What High 5 Casino game do you think has the best sound package?
The best sound package is The Palladium when in a mood for modern dancing and The Charleston when in the mood for 1920’s radio music.
