The International Pineapple Day
Now it’s getting fruity, because tomorrow we celebrate the International Pineapple Day. No one really knows who created Pineapple Day. The fact is: June 27 is all about the tropical fruit, which is popular all over the world. Today we’ll tell you why the pineapple deserves its own day and what you can do to celebrate tomorrow to the fullest.
4 reasons why the pineapple deserves its own holiday
Reason #1: Let’s start simple: Pineapples simply taste heavenly: fruity, sweet, tangy – just like summer, sunshine and a good mood. No wonder the pineapple tastes so good: it takes one to two years before a ripe fruit can delight our palate. That’s how long it takes for a pineapple plant to develop the finished tropical fruit. By the way, the name pineapple comes from the word "naná" from the Guaraní language, which is spoken in some parts of South America. "Naná" means "delicious fruit". We think that fits perfectly!
Reason #2: Not only does the pineapple taste good, it is also a real vitamin bomb, stimulates the metabolism and can even lighten the mood. The tropical fruits contain many minerals such as calcium, iron, potassium and phosphorus, numerous vitamins (especially vitamin C) and the digestive enzyme bromelain. This makes pineapples the perfect sugar substitute when you are overwhelmed by the desire for sweets.
Reason #3: The pineapple is incredibly versatile. There are now more than 100 different varieties known. The tropical fruit is often associated with Hawaii. But in fact it is also grown in many South American countries as well as in Thailand, India, the Philippines and also some African countries.
Reason #4: When we think of pineapples, we immediately think of endless sandy beaches, turquoise sea and holidays. No wonder, because pineapples can also be used to make delicious fruity cocktails, which are best enjoyed in a hammock between palm trees. The classic: Piña Colada, a dream of pineapple, coconut and rum.
3 fruit slots that you must try
You are wondering how you can celebrate the International Pineapple Day in a proper way? Well, the answer is obvious: with a fun fruit slot! Fruit slots have a long tradition and are inseparably linked to the development of gambling. We love fruit slots simply because they manage to combine the nostalgia of classic slot machines with modern slot features. One thing can be said with certainty: there are an incredible number of slot machines with fruit symbols. But you should definitely try these three:
Fancy Fruits created by Gamomat is a real classic and the slot convinces with its simple structure and a sensational maximum win of 500.000€. The game is quite simple: On 5 reels, 3 rows and 5 paylines fantastic winnings are waiting for you. The eye-catching features of the slot are of course the colourful animated fruit symbols and the legendary Seven, which can give you the biggest winnings.
Fruit Shop takes you – as the name suggests – to a colourful fruit shop. The slot of NetEnt is equipped with 5 reels, 3 rows and 15 paylines. In addition to sky blue card values from 10 to A, brightly colored fruit symbols await you. The RTP of the game is a fair 96.71%. With a bit of luck, you can leave the fruit slot not only with a full fruit basket, but also with a full wallet.
If you like it a little more modern, you are in good hands with Jammin’ Jars from the game manufacturer Push Gaming. The slot is played on a colorful playing field that contains 8×8 symbols. Here, no reels are spinning, but the symbols fall down from above. Jammin’ Jars is a so-called Cluster Pays Slot. This means that you win money if more than five identical fruits appear in a cluster. And this can really pay off with Jammin’ Jars, because theoretically you can win 20,000 times your bet.
