Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay Theme – retro design works rather well

Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay slot base game

The design in Charlie Chance in Hell to Play is a bit of a mash up. Play ‘n GO has taken inspiration from classic animations from the 1920s and 30s and combined it with an old school fruit machine.

There’s an almost hand-drawn quality to the visuals. The design isn’t overly polished but it is rather charming. It works rather well.

You’ll see black and white cartoon-style animations in the background that feature Charlie Chance and a devilish Hell’s Belle. The reels are made up of cherries, lemons, apples, grapes, bars and a 666 symbol. The most rewarding standard symbol is the bells symbol which awards 4x your total bet if you land 3 on a payline.

The wild is even better, awarding 8 x your total bet for a 3-in-a-row combo. You can of course boost the payouts if the multiplier wilds work their magic.

The simple 3 reel, 3 row machine is well suited to mobile play. The colourful visuals are decent enough too. No complaints about the Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay mobile version.

Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay Thoughts/Opinion – top extras for a 3 reel, 5 payline slot

At first glance, the Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay slot seems a little odd. Just what is this strange theme all about? The combination of retro visuals and the classic fruity format come together nicely. There’s a surprising amount of variety on offer from the bonus features too courtesy of the Feature Board.

Given Play ‘n GO’s previous efforts, we were slightly surprised to find this was only a medium volatility game. If you’re after Play ‘n GO’s usual sky-high variance, you might want to look elsewhere in the developer’s back catalogue. The popular Rich Wilde and the Book of Dead or the fiery Fortunes of Ali Baba are recommended.

That aside, we were pleasantly surprised with Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay. It’s unusual yes, but playable enough.
