Couch Potato is a three-reel online slot machine with a maximum 15,000-coin jackpot. The machine is very easy to use, and it is not as confusing or distracting to the eye as a five-reel slot machine. With its unique color and symbol scheme, plus its relatively high maximum jackpot, Couch Potato makes a good online slot machine for any player who likes three-reel slots.
The Couch Potato symbol acts as both a wild symbol and a multiplier. In its capacity as a wild symbol, the Couch Potato symbol can complete partial combinations. Two Couch Potato symbols can also complete any combination, so if you get two Couch Potato symbols you are guaranteed a win for whichever combination is completed. And, because the game is a three-reel machine with fewer combinations, you will see close combinations more frequently. In addition to acting as a wild symbol, the Couch Potato can multiply the payout for any combination that it completes by up to 25 times. Getting three Couch Potato symbols is the ultimate bonus, as it is the best possible combination and it pays 15,000 coins.
Minimum bets start at $0.75 and maximum bets are capped at $15, so players have a great deal of leeway in their betting amounts. The best combination that you can get is three Couch Potato symbols at the same time, yielding a jackpot of anywhere between 2,000 and 15,000 coins, depending on how much you bet on the spin. Betting one coin will yield a maximum of 2,000 coins for a jackpot, whereas betting three coins will yield a jackpot of 15,000 coins. The second highest jackpot yields a prize of 180 coins, but the Couch Potato symbol can modify that prize to as much as 4,500 coins. Therefore, the lion’s share of your earnings will likely come from partial high combinations paired with the wildcard effect of the special symbol.
Depending on your gaming style and your bankroll, playing this particular online slot machine can be approached in different ways. In order to go for the bigger jackpots, it is a good idea to have a bankroll that will allow you to bet $2 per spin. You can play the slot for shorter periods and for higher or lower amounts, but being able to bet $2 per spin over more spins should ensure that you will get enough jackpots to justify your playing time.
