A high volatility classic slot, the Couch Potato mobile slot looks great even if the theme is as lazy as it’s logo.
We are going to admit a pet peeve we’ve always had about this Microgaming video slot, whether it was online or now mobile; why a couch potato? Is it to appeal to people who are couch potatoes and play slots online? Or that if you play slots you are likely to be a couch potato? It’s not fun and it’s not cute. The mutant yawning potato with freaky arms and roots growing out of its head is even, to our minds, slightly disturbing.
Now we’ve had our rant, we can honestly say however that the whole paragraph above is obsolete. Reason being, this mobile slot takes up the entire size of your screen, giving you sharp, bright graphics with instantly familiar classic symbols, such as bars, cherries and 7s. Even the wild logo on the reels is thank-fully free of any mutant potato. Bonus.
The sounds effects could certainly have been more interesting, with nothing you haven’t heard before in a million other slots. However this is probably due to the classic slot look and feel rather than any laziness on Microgaming’s part.
Word of advice on this mobile slot, you’ll need patience and a heavy bank roll to play Couch Potato slot. High variance means the payout will be decent when it comes, but you’ll need the patience to wait for it to come to you unless you get really lucky in the first few spins. Equally, in order to maximise your chances of winning, you are better off playing at 3 coins per line. This will open up the slot to higher potential payouts, but the minimum bet of 0.25 increases, then to 0.75 per spin. Nothing that will break the bank, but to bear in mind if you are thinking of betting a smaller amount.

Wilds & The Jackpot: The Couch Potato logo is the wild symbol substituting for all symbols. Get 1 on the payline and it will pay 5x the winning combination, 2 of them it pays out 25x times. The jackpot can be reached by playing 3 coins per line and get three couch potato logos on the single payline.
A 3 reel classic slot, this mobile Microgaming game is actually improved, in our opinion, by the fact that your whole screen is now taken over by the slot, concentrating on what's important - the reel.
With only 1 payline and high volatility Couch Potato mobile slot is certainly more for the connoisseur of classic slots who know that its requires a slightly higher bet and some patience to see any decent returns.
That said, as a simple classic mobile slot, it works beautifully on all devices and tablets and is a decent addition to Microgaming's mobile offering.
