Do you like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain? This slot from boutique games development firm Yggdrasil can help you with the former, if not the latter. Spina Colada brings the cocktails, but there’s not the faintest sign of rain in this tropical themed slots extravaganza. Set in a thatched tropical bar by the beach, there’s everything you’d expect and more from a paradise island in this game: azure blue skies, leafy palm trees, the occasional pineapple, and plenty of refreshing fruit and cocktail symbols spread across the main reels. If that isn’t enough to get you thirsty for a cocktail, I’m not sure anything will!
Digging a little deeper, this is a 25 paylines slot spread out across 5 reels – pretty much the standard reel layout for most slots games. But as with all things Yggdrasil, this isn’t just a straightforward spin-and-win slot – there are multipliers, free spin bonuses, and plenty of other goodies along the way to keep the action exciting, and to keep you wanting to come back for more.
Yggdrasil have a reputation for creating some of the best slots on the market including Vikings Go Berzerk and Super Heroes, and Spina Colada is no exception to the rule. The graphics are impressive, along with the animations, which help keep the game feeling engaging as you spin throughout your session.
The game jackpot stands at 200x, and when you consider the maximum value of a given spin runs from £0.10-£125, there’s ample room to build in some seriously big wins if the reels fall in your favour. The RTP percentage at 96.30% isn’t half bad either, well above the threshold for what most people would consider to be a good paying slot, posting a house edge of under 4%.
The highest value symbols are the three cocktails, followed by the five different fruits, which pack out the remaining slots on the board. But aside from those, there are a number of other symbols, and indeed bonus features, that can kick-in once the game gets underway, and it’s worth devoting a little more attention to those to see how they impact on your game.
The game’s wild symbol is the Spina Colada logo, which looks like the kind of luminous signage you’d expect to find at a beach side bar. When you see this appearing on the reels, it acts like any other wild, filling in a space to help you complete nearly paylines. The benefit of the wild is its flexibility to behave like any other symbol you’re missing, effectively ensuring you win on paylines that might otherwise have fallen a symbol short.
Somewhat unusually, you’ll find there is no scatter symbol in this game. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t bonus features – they’re just built into the game in a way that means you really don’t have to worry about scatters or landing a combo of bonus symbols in order to take advantage.
Bonuses & Jackpots
A free spins bonus is available when you fill up any of the wooden boards hanging by the side of the bar, which happens when you complete a number of winning lines of that given colour of fruit. There are four free spins available, which are played immediately in your game. It’s important to note that while this is a good feature, these spins aren’t retriggerable, so you’re getting a flat four spins as your chance to rack up some bankroll when this feature is activated.
The Freeze and Respin feature kicks in whenever you land a winning combination of any kind in the main game. The winning symbols lock in place, and you get a single free spin immediately after your win, effectively giving you the chance to expand on your winning combination for a bigger prize. Any wilds on the board will turn into the icon of your matching combination, and every time you add to the payline, you get another free spin.
There is also the randomly awarded Feature Caps, which can help your game in one of four ways.
There’s the blue cap, which gives you a ‘2nd chance’ – it adds 1 or 2 more symbols to your reels to effectively guarantee you’re going to land a win, and can also appear during a freeze and respin round, for extra advantage.
The Full Line, or green cap, adds five of a kind symbols to your reels to guarantee a big 5 combo win, while the Guaranteed Multiplier Winner, or yellow cap, awards a guaranteed win multiplier, with the ability to land from 3x to 15x. Finally, the pink cap, or Extra Wilds, adds extra wilds to the second and third reels, as well as making more wilds more likely to appear on your respins.
