Black Widow and Golden Goddess, two new games created by High 5 Games (H5G), have become the top performing slots for International Game Technology (IGT), the company revealed during a recent earnings call.

“Our legendary Wolf Run game, the No. 1 performing title for many, many years, was surpassed by two titles this quarter - Golden Goddess and Black Widow, both of which are playing significantly above-floor averages,” Patti Hart, IGT CEO, said during the call.

Black Widow portrays an edgy and mysterious character in the leading role, while Golden Goddess depicts a dazzling and glowing heroine. “Black Widow and Golden Goddess epitomize H5G's renowned artistic style, so players should have no problem finding them on the casino floor,” said Joseph Masci, the creative director of H5G. “We take great pride in both the artistic look of our games and their innovative game play. These two games are fantastic examples of the latest evolution of our brand.”

Black Widow and Golden Goddess also showcase the new Super Stacks feature. Dr. Stuart Zoble, vice president of research and development for High 5 Games, developed this new feature in collaboration with Anthony Singer, CEO and president. “Tony [Singer] and I wanted to enhance the overall playing experience by designing games that would feature a longer sustainable period of playing time, while simultaneously rewarding the player with thrilling events and the potential for big wins,” Zoble said. “We rethought some of the basic assumptions of slot play and went to work developing new mathematical frameworks that would increase the thrill of each spin. Super Stacks is one of the products of that work.”

High 5 Games is a content developer for the gaming industry, creating engaging products and trademarked concepts for distribution to casinos around the world.
