Pineapple Pop

by Neon Valley Studios

Pineapple Pop Features

Fans of a static set of reels are going to be a little disappointed when they approach Pineapple Pop! This 6x4 set of reels just keeps on moving around and exploding whenever it feels like it. The 4,096 standard winways can grow as high as 262,144 thanks to this dynamic setup. With each winning combination, winning symbols are removed and new ones drop into place. At the same time, an additional row is added to the top of the reels and this eventually takes you to the maximum number of winways. 

Jumbo Blocks can appear at any point, and these could be up to 4x4 in size. Any gaps left below these blocks will be replaced by Wild symbols.

Wins must start on the leftmost reel and make their way across to the right with matching symbols landing on consecutive reels. Various frozen fruits make up the paytable with the melons providing the biggest payout of 5x for a group of six.

Scatters & Freebies!

Scatter symbols are required to take you to the Free Spins Bonus game, but they have other powers as well. Just one of these can land and create havoc with the reels by forming a diamond shape around itself and then exploding all symbols in that area. New ones drop into place and you might just pick up a win if you’re lucky.

Three Scatter symbols get you six free spins and the game continues as before with a slight twist. An elevator now moves up a level with each winning spin to stop you from dropping back down to the smaller grid size. Eight rows is the maximum obtainable and you could also see some persistent Wilds come into play. They stick around until they form part of a win so you know that they'll probably pick up some sort of prize along the way.

Pineapple Pop - Jumbo Blocks

Jumbo Blocks

Blocks up to 4x4 in size can appear and represent any of the regular paying symbols. Any space left below these huge groups of symbols will be filled by Wilds.

Pineapple Pop - Second Chance

Second Chance

Any Scatter that lands has the power to offer more wins. A diamond shape of symbols surrounding the Scatter clears out and makes room for new ones.

Pineapple Pop - Free Spins

Free Spins

Three Scatters get you six free spins and these can be retriggered. The elevator moves up a level with each spin to guarantee the height of the next, and you might also see some persistent Wilds in there too.

Pineapple Pop Review

I knew that Pineapple Pop felt a little familiar and it wasn't until someone mentioned the similarities between this and Tropicool 2 from ELK Studios, that I was able to put the two together. Large symbols, free spins, Wilds and frozen fruits all help make this feel like a bit of a copycat!

Design

Regardless of who did it first, most slot fans should enjoy this tropical beach vibe with lots of bright colours and swaying palm trees. There's a lot of neat animation going on while these reels move around in a number of strange ways, but this can make it a little difficult to appreciate on a smaller mobile screen. It is still perfectly playable but you might not get quite as much from the visual experience.

Gameplay

The base game has a lot to offer with the Jumbo Blocks, increasing reel heights, Wilds and everything else that Pineapple Pop cares to share with you. Collecting Scatter symbols can also add to the appeal with additional wins possible as those other symbols start to explode. The only downside I found with this is that the Second Chance modifier becomes a little shy but you need the Scatters to trigger the free spins. Perhaps this was done on purpose as there is a Feature Buy option for players outside the UK with a range of free spins available for various prices.

Win Potential

The 5,000x top win really does hide in the shadow of ELK’s offering in their similar slot, so fans of massive win potential may want to check out the alternative. Despite the lowish max win, the volatility is still very high, so there's plenty to consider here from a stats point of view. The RTP is 96% and you should still see plenty of action thanks to the high hit frequency of 38%.

My Verdict

It's a nice enough set-up that greets you in Pineapple Pop and the visuals are also pretty pleasing. But while there's plenty going on to keep most slots fans happy, the stats may put some off. I'd be tempted to give it a go but if it wasn't playing ball, I’d probably move over to Tropicool 2 and see what happens over there.
