Pina Colada is a summer drink said to be made firstly in 1954 by two bartenders from Puerto Rico, participating and winning a big slam competition. The earliest known story however states that in the 19th century, Puerto Rican pirate Roberto Cofresí, to boost his crew’s morale, gave them a beverage or cocktail that contained coconut, pineapple and white rum. This was what would be later known as the famous piña colada. With his death in 1825, the recipe for the piña colada was lost.
Spina Colada has been out for a few days already and even though it resembles Yggdrasil’s other slot Wild Berries to some extent it does have some unique features which together with it’s thrilling graphics makes it more fun to play in our opinion.
