High 5 Games

High 5 Games LogoHigh 5 Games is one of the developers that should be taken seriously, having created a collection of over 300 games in time, available on all continents and in almost 50 countries. They design for online, land-based and social casinos, and they’re launching new games at a rapid pace. Currently, there are more than 200 employees which are working at High 5 Games.

Vault: this is the High 5 Games remote gaming server, which may be used by their partners to get access to the more than 300 games they have to offer. They have partners in regulated markets, from almost 50 countries, all over the world.

The gaming license which is used for European markets originates from Gibraltar, a fairly respectable jurisdiction. The Vault platform has been made available at several casinos from New Jersey, including Golden Nugget, Virgin, Tropicana and Caesars. Their expansion into Europe was in a partnership with NYX and Gamesys, and they have gone live on 7 casinos from the region since they started offering Vault there.

Their games are certified in Alderney, Gibraltar, UK, New Jersey, Isle of Man, Malta, Croatia, Estonia and Latvia.

They’ve also launched their very own social casinos, one for UK that’s called High 5 Casino, and the other for the Asian market, whose name is Shake The Sky. Both feature slot machines and other casino games for real money, and which are appropriate for the respective markets. They are also accessible both via desktop and mobile devices.

History of High 5 Games

The history of this company goes back to the mid 90s, being formed in 1995. They released their first video slot in 2002, and by 2005 they were already present in more than 50 countries. Their most popular slot machine ever was launched in 2008, and it was called Da Vinci Diamonds. Their 200th game was released in 2009.

A couple of good years followed for their slot machines. First, they got Game of the Year for Noah’s Ark, in 2010. In 2011, they released two very popular titles, slots called Black Widow and Golden Goddess.

Their Facebook based High 5 Casino was the fastest growing casino from the site back in 2012, and that made them release a similar site for the Asian market in 2013 (Shake The Sky). In 2014, they released their Vault product for the New Jersey market. They celebrated 20 years in 2015, and they certainly have a lot to show off in this time period.

Games

A total of 319 games are currently available on the site of High 5 Games, an impressive collection for any developer. 168 of these games are also made available to land-based locations, so they’re not just covering the online market with their games. There are a lot of different slot machines for you to try out from this developer, and that’s great, as there are a lot of unique features as well used, not just standard ones.

While I’ve found a fair number of their games to be good-looking titles, I’d mostly consider their collection an average one where graphics are concerned. They just don’t do as good of a job with these slots as other developers which are launching at a slower rate.

I’ve discovered a much better approach when it comes to features though. That’s where High 5 Games shines, as it offers not only huge variety, but also manages to innovate in some cases. They are the creators of some of the industry’s most appreciated math features, including Tumbling Reels, Super Stacks, Super Symbols and Split Symbols. In addition to those, you also get a huge number of other features, from expanding wilds, to free spins, enduring wilds, bonus games, exploding wilds and all sorts of layouts with lines or ways to win.

Popular Titles

Most of their more popular games are from the past, so the recent releases haven’t quite found the same level of acceptance among players as their best ones. First, they had a slot machine called Da Vinci Diamonds, whose modern version is available under the name Double Da Vinci Diamonds. Another two huge hits of theirs were Golden Goddess and Black Widow, both released in 2011.

Highest RTP Games

If you’re fond of the high RTP slot machines, then High 5 Games doesn’t have the best collection of games for you. Their best RTP, from the ones I could find this figure for, will be 96% for The Haunted Horseman, while pretty much all the others will be at 95% at best. A lot of their other games will be at much lower levels though.
