Spiña Colada has Yggdrasil Gaming behind it, and it is a slot that is obviously inspired by the popular Pina Colada, a tasty cocktail that is made out of coconut milk, rum and pineapple juice. It’s something that you might enjoy at a beach, and so that’s the kind of tropical design that Spiña Colada sports as well. In the case of Spiña Colada, we’re getting 5 reels and 25 active lines, a pretty typical layout for a slot machine these days. One of the things that you will find exciting is the list of features, which includes re-spins with frozen wins and multipliers, a feature cap collection board, free spins and wilds that can become frozen. All those cool features come with a price though, a smaller than average top payout, which can only go up to $3,000.
One aspect of the wager, that shouldn’t be surprising, is the fact that you are required to activate 25 lines, and you don’t get a choice in it. The bets will have 25 coins in them at all times, and you are being asked to decide on their value, nothing else. They start from a minimum of $0.004, so for 25 lines the smallest wager possible will be $0.10. As for the highest wager, it has a value of $125, using $5 per line.
The game’s entire theme revolves around the idea of delicious fruit cocktails that you’d enjoy at the beach or by the side of a pool. They seem to have went with the pool idea in this case, and you can see a bit of it in the background image. For the most part though, the reels are placed on a wooden background, with a tiki hut built all around them. There are colored wooden boards on both sides, telling you about certain features that can be triggered. If you go to the reels, the symbols selected for them are of fruits and of the cocktails that use them. You have watermelon, oranges, pineapple, strawberries and kiwi for the low paying symbols, while three delicious cocktails are selected for the ones that offer more. A feature symbol with the logo is also a possibility. The game manages to give you the tropical theme and it does an excellent job with it overall. It really does feel as a game that you’d want to play if you love the idea of sitting in the Sun while drinking a nice cocktail.
A first feature to mention in Spiña Colada is the wild, which actually has the logo of this slot machine on it. The wild symbols of the game are useful only as replacements, being combined with various other regular symbols in order to bring you wins. These symbols don’t pay you anything directly, but they are transformed into frozen symbols when they contribute to a new combo, so you get a chance to use them again next round. These frozen symbols appear to be capable of bringing you re-spins, which will continue for as long as you get additional symbols of this type. On top oft that, as you fill more columns, you get to multiply your wins, getting to 2x, 3x, 4x and eventually to 5x if you’re very lucky. Another big features in Spiña Colada is the one called the Feature Cap Collection Board. These are the four boards that you see placed next to the reels. They are awarded at random, and you collect them until you get four of the same color in the right board. Once this happens, you get 4 free spins and an extra feature. The four features that you can use during free spins are 2nd Chance (you can get additional winning symbols for a combo), Full Line (you start off with a win of 5 of-a-kind symbols), Extra Wilds (you get 2 free wilds in the beginning and an increased chance of other wilds for the reels) and Guaranteed Win X3 (you are guaranteed a prize, and re-spins will continue until you get one, which will then be multiplied by 3x).
The features in Spiña Colada are interesting, but they do come at a cost, and that’s the lower payout range that is available here. Even if you’re very lucky, and you get the best paying symbol to form a combo, it will only give you 200 coins, so up to $1,000. With the right extra feature for the free spins, you might take this to $3,000, since the payout can be tripled there, but that’s it.
Spiña Colada manages to make the action interesting, not just with its tropical beach and cocktail theme, but also with its unusual features. The only downside I see is that low top jackpot of $1,000, which is not a very inspiring sight when you’re spending $125 per spin.
