Thanksgiving Factoids!

h5c_factoids_thanksgiving_blogpostHey High 5-ers, with Thanksgiving being celebrated in the United States today, what are your plans for the holiday weekend… besides playing Gobblers Gone Wild on High 5 Casino?

Did you know that in 2015, 46.9 million Americans traveled 50 miles or more over the Thanksgiving weekend? AAA estimates that tomorrow, 48.7 million Americans will travel to be with family and friends for the holiday. While you begin your preparations for your great feast, check out some Thanksgiving facts below:

1. The first Thanksgiving was held in the autumn of 1621, however it did not become a holiday until 1863! It took over 200 years and a 17 year campaign by Sarah Josepha Hale, for President Lincoln to implement the holiday.

2.  Forks weren’t the only thing missing from the first Thanksgiving dinner shared between 90 Wampanoag Native Americans and 50 pilgrims…so were turkey, pumpkin pie and delicious cranberry sauce! Yes, that’s right turkey was not served at the first Thanksgiving and neither were pumpkin pies. Historians have reported that venison, ducks, geese, oysters, lobsters, eel and fish were mostly likely consumed at the first Thanksgiving along with raw cranberries and pumpkins. The Native Americans and pilgrims used spoons and knives to eat, as the fork wasn’t introduced until 10 years later!

3. Did you know that there are 6 major US States that produce the majority of pumpkins? The USDA reports that in 2015, Illinois, California, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and New York produced a combined 753.8 million pounds of pumpkins!

4. Over 50 million people tune their TV’s to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, are you one of them? Is watching the parade a tradition in your house? Here are some interesting facts!

  • The first Thanksgiving Day Parade was launched by employees of Macy’s in 1924 and featured animals from the Central Park Zoo!
  • The first balloon character to appear in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was Snoopy in 1927! Snoopy has appeared in the parade more than any other character and was designed by Tony Sarg!

5. After watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, do you turn on some football? This year marks 96 years since the first NFL Thanksgiving Day Football Game took place in 1920!

You can’t have Thanksgiving without a turkey, can you? Here are some interesting facts about turkeys:

  •  Turkeys are intelligent, sensitive and highly social animals that create lasting bonds with one another. A wild turkey has the ability to learn the precise details of an area over 1,000 acres in size!
  • A group of turkeys can be called several different things including: a “crop,” “dole,” “gang,” “posse,” and “rafter.”
  • A baby turkey is known as a “polut” or “chick”.
  • A young female turkey is called a “jenny” and a young male turkey is called a “jake”.
  • Did you know only male turkeys can gobble? To announce themselves to female turkeys, male turkeys gobble to assert their dominance.

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!

4th Anniversary Birthday Bash

h5c_4thbdaybash_freecoins_wallpost2

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!

While we can’t share them all with you here, enjoy a few great ones below:

Jo M. – LaPine, OR
Destination: Belize. I would love to go back to the island to help them rebuild after the 2 disasters they have had this year. They survived a fire that destroyed a portion of downtown San Pedro, they are just recovering from Hurricane Earl. They are very compassionate & resilient, they jump in and help each other with out hesitating. I would Love to go be a part of their community in rebuilding and getting them back up on their feet and enjoying their local cuisine & hanging out with the locals🙂 .

Cheryl P. – Conway, SC
Destination: Prince Edward Island. In my younger adult years I got the opportunity to read the Anne of Green Gables series. Her way of speaking about this Island made it seem like the most beautiful place in the world. It seemed as though you could step into another world and be at peace. Sometimes, that is just what the doctor ordered in this crazy time in history.

Edith S. – Puyallup, WA
Destination: The Caribbean. I would love to meet my sister in law in Nixa, Missouri and hop on a plane and go to Tampa, Florida. From there get on a luxury cruise line like Carnival and kick back for a week. Go to Cozumel and the Cayman Islands. No worry about what is for dinner, house cleaning or laundry. I am 74 and she is 72 and seems that keeping house and raising family is all we have ever done. I want time for myself to explore what is out there. No husband just my sister in law and fun doing what we want and relaxing.

Robin E. – Galena, MO
Destination: Yellowstone National Park. There are so many natural wonders in this country that we live in. I have been to a million theme parks. I served in the military and my one dream is to see Yellowstone National Park and I would like to see it on horseback and just go for days and days and days with no cell phones, no internet and just enjoy what was put on this Earth for us.

Dikki B. – Fort Myers, FL
Destination: Napoleon, Ohio. I would go spend time with my 87 year old father, who has not been in good health for a few months. I would also spend time with my son who attends Ohio State University in Columbus. Since I retired to Florida 5 years ago, I didn’t realize how much I would miss my daddy and my son….Life is short….time flies by and I would love to be with them again for a little while.
