A good combination of Vitamin C & D plays a bigger role when it comes to us staying happy, healthy and energetic than what some may think. Depending on where in the world you live, it’s not always easy to keep both levels topped up. I think we can all agree that as soon as the sun pops out, the energy boost we get isn’t far behind.
So what can you do if fresh fruit and sunny days are difficult to get a hold of? Well, Quickfire has recently released something that could at least fill the position as a placebo effect. The game in question is of course Pineapple Pop!
Besides a fun name, players can expect features such as Rolling Reels, Escalating Ways, Jumbo Blocks, Wild Fills, Second Chances, Bonus Buy and Elevator Free Spins.
Are you excited yet? Slap on some SPF and let’s get some sun!
Pure Summer Vibes
The first thing that sticks out for me is clearly all the bright colors. Whether there’s been a paintball war or if the rainbow has dropped off a few nuggets doesn’t really matter because the vibe is very happy and uplifting.
Is it supposed to be a Caribbean island? Who knows but what I do know is that I was clearly dehydrated when I played because all the fruit symbols looked so tasty and I wanted to eat/drink all of it. Add some sun to that and voilá – I’m hooked.

Rolling Reels – Get More Wins
Cascading Reels or Avalanche, we’ve seen a variety of names for this feature over the years, depending on the provider. It’s when the symbols involved in a win explode and new symbols take over, possibly leading to another win. The Rolling Reels will continue building your win until you sooner or later get a winless spin.
Here’s a little helper along the way as following a winning cascade, you will see an additional row of symbols being added at the top. With a bit of luck you can get as many as 4 additional rows, giving you more chances to win.
Jumbo Blocks – Go Big or Go Home
Every now and then you might see a gigantic piece of fruit join the others. Known as Jumbo Blocks, they can range in size from 2×2, 3×3 or even 4×4. Whenever a Jumbo Block drops in, it may create some empty spaces underneath. This is a good thing because they will immediately be filled with a Wild symbol.
Get a Second Chance Courtesy of Mr Pineapple
The pineapple might be the happiest Scatter I’ve ever seen and he’s definitely in a party mood. Every pineapple you manage to land will give you a second chance at a win. If you look at the image above, you can see the purple positions surrounding it.
Up to 12 symbols will explode and give space for new symbols and give you another shot at landing a win. What a generous guy, right?
Free Spins Upsizer – You Decide How Many
Pineapple Pop has a slightly different approach to Free Spins, which isn’t a bad idea. It takes 3 scatters to trigger them. This will set you up with 6 Free Spins but before it’s time to start spinning, you can actually add more spins to your collection. What’s the catch? You’ll have to cough up some money in order to get the extra.
The feature is known as the Upsizer, which isn’t a bad name. As you can see, you can get as many as 25 Free Spins if you feel like it’s worth the money. I didn’t feel like paying anything so I decided that 6 was enough.
Free Spins Elevator
When you’re about to play your Free Spins, the game will let you know about the Elevator. Your spins will begin at 4 rows. With each win, the Elevator will move up 1 row. For each level, the Elevator will increase the minimum ways for you to win and you can get as many as 8 levels.
Basically it’s just like in the base game, only it sounds fancier calling it Elevator instead of Rolling Reels.
Feature Buy For the Impatient
If you’re anything like me, you can quickly get frustrated if the scatters needed for Free Spins are avoiding you like the plague. Luckily there’s a simple solution to the problem as Quickfire has been kind enough to add a Feature Buy option.
Choose from 6 to 25 Free Spins and as you can see, the prizes are slightly higher than when you’ve actually earned your Free Spins and can use the Upsizer.
Pineapple Pop – Pass or Play?
I think Pineapple Pop is a fun game and the vibe is very uplifting. It can probably help cheer you up, especially after a dark and heavy winter day. All the colors make it all feel so light and there are enough features here to stay busy and not get bored right off the bat.
Is it a new favorite? Not really as it’s not my normal type of slot. However, big fruity symbols, exploding pineapples, Feature Buy and Free Spins turns out to be a pretty good mix so if you’re looking for something fresh, then Pineapple Pop might be the answer you are looking for.
