In its press release dated June 22, 2017, Yggdrasil Gaming introduced Spina Colada as a freshening serving. Yggdrasil’s May 2017 slot named Sunny Shores set the thematic pace for Spina Colada, which is vacation-themed. With a game play featuring the menu items synonymous with a beachside cocktail bar, Spina Colada’s rival games include Beach Party from Wazdan, Sam on the Beach from ELK Studios, and Spinions Beach Party from Quickspin.
The name “Spina Colada” is a corruption of the Spanish word “pina colada”, which means a garnished or iced cocktail that is basically made from pineapple, coconut, sugar, and white rum. Spina Colada players match three, four, or five multi-colored cocktails or sliced fruits.
Spina Colada Game Characteristics
Spina Colada has a volatility rating of 57%, a 5X3 grid, and its 25 pay lines are fixed. Three high-paying, five high-paying, and a special symbol are used. The high-paying symbols are: a pink pina colada juice garnished with orange, a blue Hawaii cocktail garnished with maraschino cherry, and a light green pina colada garnished with lemon.
The low-paying symbols are: a sliced strawberry, a sliced orange fruit, a sliced kiwi fruit, a sliced pineapple, and a sliced quarter watermelon. The special symbol is a “spina colada” Wild that not only doubles up as a substitute, but can also freeze symbols.
The starting page of Spina Colada is a self-praise of the cool game play that can offer as much as 75000 coins in a game round and informs about its X15 multiplier and the four randomly-triggered feature caps. The next page encourages players to claim a freely offered feature cap, which—if added to four more collectible feature caps—results to free spins.
The Spina Colada’s coin values are: $0.004, $0.01, $0.02, $0.03, $0.04, $0.05, $0.06, $0.07, $0.08, $0.09, $0.10, $0.16, $0.20, $0.30, $0.50, $0.70, $1.00, $2.00, $3.00, $4.00, and $5.00.
The bet sizes in Spina Colada are: $0.10 (the minimum bet), $0.25, $0.50, $0.75, $1.00, $1.25, $1.50, $1.75, $2.00, $2.25, $2.50, $4.00, $5.00, $7.50, $12.50, $17.50, $25.00, $50.00, $75.00, $100.00, and $125.00 (the maximum bet).
The following are the Spina Colada payouts for three, four, and five matching cocktails and fruits. The pink pina colada cocktail offers X30, X90, and X200. The blue Hawaii cocktail offers X25, X75, and X150. The light green pina colada cocktail has X20, X60, and X120.
The sliced strawberry offers X5, X10, and X30. The sliced orange gives X4, X7, and X25. The sliced kiwi fruit offers X3, X7, and X25. The sliced pineapple pays X3, X6, and X25. The sliced watermelon has X3, X6, and X20.
Spina Colada has X2, X3, X4, and X5 multipliers, and when a particular symbols covers all reels the payout is X15 the stake. Designed like bottle tops, there are four feature caps: a blue “2nd chance”, a green “full line”, a red “extra wilds”, and a yellow “guaranteed win X3”; matching four caps of any type activates four free spins.
One or two “2nd chance” caps change non-winning spins into winning re-spins by freezing symbols. “Guaranteed win X3” promises to multiply regular winnings by three. A “full line” offers a payout equal to matching five symbols. “Extra Wilds” come with two free Wilds. Spina Colada’s non-progressive payout is $400,000.
The software is good. The ambience sounds portray a well-patronized cocktail bar. The HD graphics beautifully illustrate the sprawling beach dotted with beach umbrellas and the wooden and thatched bar, while the fish-like animated cocktail is mesmerizing.
