The New York-based company High 5 Games is probably the biggest slots developer you have never heard of. Although High 5 Games (sometimes abbreviated to H5G) is not so well known, some of the games they have developed will be instantly recognizable. Slots such as the gemstone-themed Da Vinci Diamonds or fantasy-inspired Golden Goddess were developed by High 5 Games on behalf of IGT. In fact their portfolio includes some 150 online games and countless more land-based slot machines. As well as IGT, High 5 Games have built games for WMS, Bally, Caesar’s Gaming, Hasbro and Sigma Gaming.
A notable characteristic of High 5 Games slots is that they are typically designed to a very high standard, with many featuring human characters. Examples include the biblical Noah’s Ark slot or the haunting game Black Widow. Most will know these as IGT games, but they were actually developed by High 5 Games.
In more recent times High 5 Games has ventured into social slot games on platforms like Facebook. This is an area where the company has really grown in popularity, with thousands of players logging on every day and playing their slots with virtual currency.
Founded in 1995, the company has a presence in casinos in 5 continents and their online games are accessible in virtually every legal online gambling jurisdiction. Their social slots are extremely popular in their native United States, where legal online gambling is largely restricted at present.
