High 5 Games Launches Server
High 5 Games are currently preparing for the launch of their new Vault remote gaming server in Europe later this year, with the platform set to go live in New Jersey during the first quarter of 2014. The New Jersey-based slot developer will then be able to offer more than 100 of their most popular land-based slot machine games in online play instead, making them available for online casino operators such as those which run the Cherry Red Casino, as well as other sites. This will be a big step forward for the developers, particularly if they are taken up by a lot of different operators.
There will be first launching in the Internet gaming market in New Jersey through their partnership with Caesars Interactive, and they also have plans to seal partnerships with other operators in that particular market. After they hit New Jersey, they will follow this up with a European rollout which is due to take place later in the year. The company has already launched plenty of land-based titles for the likes of International Game Technology, Bally Technologies, and WMS, and they claim that their titles tend to perform 2 to 3 times better than the average games which are available – so if this is true, we can expect some instant hits which will set the online gaming industry on fire. “With Vault, online casinos will no longer have to wonder about the quality of the games they’re getting,” H5G chief executive Anthony Singer commented. “Vault will only carry H5G’s top hits – the premium games that have been top-performing titles at all of the major casinos around the world.” These are big words, but the land-based titles will also become demented by the company’s social casino slots which have been available on Facebook, as the social platform was used as a test bed to see which themes and features would appeal to players.
“With over 5 billion slot spins played each month on High 5 Casino, we have the unique ability to determine which brands will successfully translate to the online environment,” said the chief operating officer, Med Nadooshan. They have also been quick to point out the success of the games which they launched through International Game Technologies Double Down Casino, noting that the most successful game to go live on the app was their Golden Goddess slot. It had replaced the previous favourite Da Vinci Diamonds, which was also created by High 5 Games. That game in particular had performed six times better than any other of the slots available through Double Down casino, and has become something of an online phenomenon with plenty of people looking to try it out through real cash bets. “Just as we delivered an enthusiastic fan base to our land-based partners, we look forward to sharing our successes with our new online partners,” Singer added. “We hope to make Vault a critical component of any premiere online casino destination.”
