    Understanding High 5 Casino

    I find a lot of people don't quite understand some of the features in High 5 Casino, so thought I'd make a post about it here.

    Overview

    When you start out at High 5 Casino, you're given some starting cash and two games, Majestic Sea and Vivaldi's Seasons. You're also provided with lobby spins.

    Hourly Bonus

    Every 4 hours you can collect money that you are given by the game itself. The good thing about this bonus, compared to many other games on Facebook, is that the hourly is set to their server time, and not the time you last checked in. So starting at midnight eastern, every 4 hours throughout the day is when you can collect. This can be helpful, because if you missed a bonus, you might be able to still grab it, and still grab the next one shortly after. So an example would be... If it were 7pm eastern, and you never collected your 4pm bonus, you can collect at that time, and in just an hour at 8pm, you can collect again.

    You also gain 3 lobby spins every bonus.

    Leveling

    There are two forms of leveling up, your personal level, and your individual game level. I didn't track the exp it takes to gain each level, but as you get higher level, it takes more and more experience. To gain experience, you must win money. A lot of other games make it about how much you spend, so the difference here is, you can get no where if you're not winning.

    Game Level

    Your game level determines how much money you can receive for your hourly bonus. At level 1, you don't gain any hourly money. So it is important to try to quickly get to level two, which takes little to no effort. Once at level 2, you will collect $10 for the hourly bonus. You will proceed to gain an additional $1 for every level you gain, which caps out at level 21 at $30. After that, you will not gain any more hourly cash from that game.

    At each level up for the game, you will gain {[your level] / 10} lobby spins. So from levels 1 to 19, you will get a single lobby spin per game level up. At level 20, you will start gaining an additional lobby spin. You will also increase the dollar amount you receive when you spin the 3 symbols of that game in the lobby. This number caps out at $60, making it the worse thing to spin in the lobby at upper levels (will talk about lobby spins later). You will also gain a flat amount of cash each level as well to play with.

    Player Level

    Your player level goes up as you win in each game, and isn't linked to any specific game. At each level up, you gain {[your level] / 10} lobby spins, a flat amount of cash to play with, and the lobby symbols [Wilds, 7s, Real Vegas Slots, and Gems] all increase in value when spun. The symbols for the individual games are linked to the game level and do not increase.

    Lobby Spins and Unlocking Games

    Lobby spins are gained at level ups, and during the hourly bonus. The lobby slot machine is the only way to unlock new games. In order to do this, you must spin three like symbols for a game you haven't unlocked (with wild counting). Spinning 3 Free Spins symbols grants you 5 additional spins.

    The game symbols all cap off at $60 at some point when you've hit a certain level for the game, but the 7s, Real Vegas Slots, Gems, and Wilds will continue to grow with the player level indefinitely it seems (or has been my experience at my level in the mid 50s).

    The Current Games

    The current lineup of games is as follows:

    • Witches Riches - Stacked Symbols - 3x Pay in Bonus - 15 Spins Bonus
    • Port Royale - Stacked Symbols - 3x Pay in Bonus - 15 Spins Bonus
    • Vivaldi's Seasons - Super Stacked Symbols - Pick a Symbol in Bonus - 7 Spins Bonus

    • Jaguar Princess - Super Stacks (6 Reel Game) - 12 to 16 Spins Bonus
    • Majestic Sea - Split Symbols - 5 or 10 Spins Bonus
    • Oodles of poodles - Split Symbols - 5 or 10 Spins Bonus
    • Princess of Paradise - Split Symbols - 5 or 10 Spins Bonus
    • Jewel of India - Split Symbols - 5 or 10 Spins Bonus
    • Island Eyes - Super Stacks - 7 Spins Bonus
    • Vanishing Act - Super Stacks - 12 Spins Bonus
    • Dangerous Beauty - Super Stacks - 7 Spins Bonus
    • Palace of Magic - Tumbling Blasts (New Concept Game) - 7 to 12 Spins Bonus
    • Secrets of the Forest - Tumbling Reels - Random Number of Spins Bonus

    I personally think of all the FB casinos this was is the best and less intrusive as far as involving "your friends" and all. I hate being bothered with friend frenzies etc.

    It does seem like you can't lose your bankroll no matter how much you up your bets! Wish it was like that in real life. But I do really enjoy most of the IGT games!

    Wow GG. I'm level 57 myself, but I lost all my money. I got killed playing Palace of Magic. I really wanted to like that game. But half the fun is gaining it back.

    Thanks for the summary, Ponzz.

    GG, how did you get that high? I'm at level 51. I still play the games but I wish you earned the new games by achieving levels instead of spinning for them.

    Yeah, I figured I'd write it up since it's a little different from the rest.

    I honestly think it's the best of the group of real slots. I just wish you got more money every 4 hours. There is no real benefit of being high level.

    Great summary, Ponzzz! Thanks for your effort. I'm enjoying these a lot, but still find it hard to get on quite often. I also haven't won a new game for several weeks, but do keep winning some of the ones I already have. Wish they would change that.

    PS When you level up while playing a game, a panel comes up awarding a free spin and also a dollar amount won. I can't figure where the "dollars" went. They don't seem to be added to the current winnings.
