High 5 Games has grown to become the industry’s largest independent casino games provider, becoming a global operation filled with a diverse and eclectic group of talented professionals.

With decades of experience in software development and game design, Mr. Singer has secured patents for heralded game innovations, negotiated multi-year and multi-platform contracts with various distributors, overseen the launch of highly successful products in the social and mobile gaming spaces, and mentored a large and diverse team of high-level executives from diverse artistic and technical backgrounds. Under Mr. Singer’s vision, H5G games have regularly led the industry in both performance and popularity.
As part of the company’s strategic vision, High 5 Games has expanded beyond its traditional role as a game creator by strengthening its product portfolio, enhancing its brand through its social and mobile casinos, and launching Vault – the company’s remote game server – for online casinos in regulated markets.
Prior to founding High 5 Games, Mr. Singer headed a successful consulting firm in New York City that designed and programmed custom business solutions for clients like The United Nations, Bank of New York, Independence Bank of New York, and the Spanish Institute.
