The Copacabana was a legendary New York City nightclub from the 1940s and 1950s where mobsters hung out and big-name performers entertained nightly. BetSoft Gaming has dispensed with the underworld element and New York City altogether and borrowed only the tropical theme for its At The Copa mobile slots game.
This is a five-reel, 30-payline game. There are not one but three progressive jackpots tied to player action. In addition At The Copa also offers free spins and bonus play.
The Copa has been spirited away from New York to a tropical island of thatched roofs and bamboo buildings. Here we meet the hot-blooded Carolina and her two suitors, Rico and Pedro, who are engaged in a non-stop dance competition to win her heart. The spicy salsa beat is unrelenting, the dance floor is as hot as the red chili peppers strewn about and the only thing that can cool this night down are the fruity rum drinks under miniature umbrellas.
Three or more Dance Shoe symbols anywhere inside the club will unlock the Free Spins Bonus. You must decide who will have this dance – the smouldering Rico or the volcanic Pedro. Your choice of dance partner will decide who is the Wild during your 10 free twirls At The Copa where a random multiplier between 2X and 10X is applied to your winnings.
At any other time during basic play the Ocean is the Wild and if it rolls into the centre reel it becomes an Expanding Wild. The Ocean floods the Copa, inundating the reel and making it entirely wild as the other reels spin. If you win you are rewarded with a 2X multiplier. You can continue this bonus until the Expanding Wild multiplier reaches five.
A third, and most exciting, bonus occurs when Rico and Pedro find themselves on either side of the desirous Carolina on the dance floor on Reels 1, 2 and 3. The potential powder keg explodes into an all-out battle for the love of the Latin temptress in the Dance Bonus Round. You must pick between Rico and Pedro and stand back to watch the drama play out. The better your chosen lothario performs in his seductions the more money you win.
And any wins At The Copa can be enhanced with the Double Up button. Rico will flip a coin and the fates will decide whether you win or lose your wager. The dance floor is so hot you may not have even noticed the chili peppers under foot. But if you find five Chilies anywhere At The Copa you win the Suave Jackpot. If the Chilies align on Payline 2 or 3 you win the Median Jackpot and if the Chilies gather exclusively on Payline 1 you leave with the Caliente Jackpot. Dance the night away!
