Game Spotlight: Woolly Mammoth

WoollyMammoth_1200x1200_Glass1
Woolly Mammoth is now available for all players to unlock at High 5 Casino!

They roam the prehistoric tundra, majestically towering over all other life forms. Despite being peaceful, their sheer size inspires a mixture of fear and awe from all the creatures they encounter. Early humans, amazed by these giants, created drawings on cave walls to try and capture their grandeur. Journey way back in time to witness the legendary Woolly Mammoth!

Woolly Mammoth features the Collection Bonus, which multiplies the entire total winnings of the free games if players capture all five letters of the word ‘bonus.’ This total can be multiplied anywhere from 3x to 10x, depending on what mystery symbol the player chooses at the conclusion of the bonus round. Stacked Symbols and Stacked Wilds ensure that wins can grow as big as the animals that inspired the game!

We here at High 5 Games can’t believe how much our app has grown in a mere 24 months. Since its September 2012 debut, H5C has grown to include 100+ premium slots, plus mobile versions and video poker; it’s also racked up nearly eight million downloads. None of this would have been possible without our loyal players, so a heartfelt thanks to each and every one of you! We hope you enjoyed the first two years, and we know the next two will be even better!

To celebrate High 5 Casino’s two-year anniversary, we’re releasing two amazing games today! The future is even wilder than you imagined in Retropolis, which is unlocked for all players!

Geo Quest premieres later this week as the latest premium game at Shake the Sky Casino!

There are wonders scattered all over this vast planet, and Geo Quest lets you visit a few of them while on the search for big wins! Get ready for a globe-trotting trip that will take you from the Egyptian pyramids to the Roman Colosseum and beyond. Grab your passport and pack a bag, because you’re about to embark on a journey you’ll never forget! Stacked Symbols, Stacked Wilds, and a Collect-2-Wild Bonus lead to spectacular jackpots!

We here at High 5 Games have plenty of interests outside of making the best slots around. In honor of Geo Quest’s imminent release, High 5-er Lori is here to talk to you about geocaching, one of her hobbies:

Geocaching? What?

Exactly! Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor scavenger hunt that is conducted through the use of a GPS. The goal is to locate geocaches, which are hidden everywhere and contain all types of random stuff, through the use of certain coordinates (longitude and latitude for the win!). People from around the world can play anytime, anywhere.

Fun! How do I play?

Playing is pretty simple, and the official rules can be found on www.geocaching.com. To get started, you visit the aforementioned website and type in your zip code to view the hidden caches near you. Each cache has its own set of coordinates that you then put into your GPS (you can use a handheld device, a smartphone app, or a car GPS). The cache page not only gives you coordinates, but also a description of the container, its size, any specialty items inside, and sometimes even hints. Believe it or not, there are over 2 million active geocaches and over 5 million geocachers worldwide!

What’s inside a cache?

There are many different types of caches that can be found, ranging from large ammo cases to nano-sized rock decoys. Inside every cache, aside from whatever else you find, and no matter how big or small, is a log book. Everyone that finds the cache gets to log their name inside; once that’s done, you can also mark it on the cache page online to let everyone know what you found (or didn’t find).

You are typically able to find items inside larger caches. Many themed caches exist, where fellow geocachers can take and leave things like CDs, or music, or foreign currency. Don’t start geocaching just to turn a profit, though; if you take something, you must leave something of equal or greater value. You might also find trackables inside a geocache, which are basically dog tags that travel the world living in different caches (sort of like a Where’s George dollar).

Some of the most unique caches I’ve found in the past include a fake spider on a tree in a park, a magnetic fake bolt underneath a guardrail, and an ammo container in the woods that contained foreign currency. I currently am trying to figure out where to place a cache that looks like a piece of chewed gum, but is really a tiny magnet! I doubt anyone will ever discover it, but I still want to find the perfect location so it doesn’t get lost or stolen.

Some High 5-ers take the plunge…

Geocachers
I took some High 5-ers on a rendezvous to find one of the caches hidden in Madison Square Park in New York City. The weather did not cooperate during our first attempt – it poured the whole afternoon. Being determined geocachers, we went out looking anyway but came up short. The second time we went it was beautiful out, and using the hints given to us, we were able to find the cache! That tricky bugger was magnetized inside a street post – you would have never known it was there unless you were looking for it. We all had a great time flexing our detective skills and looking like weirdos in the park!

Go out and play!

Geocaching is a lot of fun, and practically free to do! I love exploring new areas in towns that I’ve been to a hundred times. Geocaching gives you a whole new perspective on the world around you, which is brimming with secrets just out of sight and waiting to be discovered.

We’re interested in what you’re interested in! If you have any cool hobbies or stories you’d like to share, leave us a comment below!

Today’s post comes from High 5 Blog correspondent Ali.

This week’s Shake the Sky release will be Dragon’s Blessing!

Under the watchful eye of the golden dragon, all your dreams of wealth and prosperity can come true. Be enveloped in opulence as symbols of luck, happiness, and wealth swirl around you. Respect its mighty power, and you too can experience the full magnitude of the Dragon’s Blessing.

Dragon’s Blessing has plenty of auspicious symbols to bring you lots of good luck while playing! Golden celestial dragon symbols and phoenix symbols complement each other to create a harmonious yin-yang balance. The dragon with the flaming pearl under its chin symbolizes good luck and prosperity. Even the red and gold color palette of the game has special symbolism, with red representing good fortune and gold representing wealth. Also, on Chinese New Year, it is common for elders to give younger people a red envelope – similar to the ones found in this game on the J, Q, K, and A symbols – as a sign of prosperity to welcome the New Year.

Dragon’s Blessing has a 3-4-4-4-3 reel configuration, which provides 576 ways to win. This new title features Stacked Symbols and both Left-to-Right and Right-to-Left pays for even more chances to win.

Experience the good fortune and prosperity of Dragon’s Blessing when it debuts later this week at Shake the Sky Casino!
