Time to go old school but with a modern twist in this Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay slot game by Play’n GO.
Yes, this is a 3 reel classic slot, but don’t walk away, but this is a 3 reel classic slot from Play’n GO. And they like to do things a little bit different, just remember the Fire Joker mobile slot or even the Hugo Goal game.
Based on the old-timey cartoons from the 1920s, this Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay mobile slot has a fun aesthetic that is original, and certainly eye-catching.
Charlie Chance sits by the left (with a little resemblance to a certain Mr Chaplin) and the she-devil (Betty Boo’s sister anyone?) controls his fate in this hot underworld full of dancing demons.
But it’s not just the black and white animations in the background that makes this slot stand out, it’s the fact that you have a limited number of symbols on the 3 reels. The high paying symbols are the bells, 666 and Bars, whilst the low paying symbols are simple grapes, apples, lemons and cherries.
The twist is that unlike most 3 reel slot reviews, you can win as much as 6,666x your bet in one spin; usually you are lucky to get a top win of 500x your bet.
So how do they do it here? Because you get wilds with multipliers in this Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay video slot.
Not always. Sometimes it’s just a singular regular wild that shows up. Sometimes those wild may even come stacked. And then sometimes, they come with a 2x or 3x multiplier which multiply each other, giving you a possible total x27 multiplier on a win.
That’s how you get those big top wins in this slot. But it’s not the only way, thanks to the devilishly good feature board that puts poor Charlie through hell.
And that’s what elevates this from just a simple fruit machine. Yes, absolutely anyone can spin, win, and understand how to play this Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay slot game. That’s the beauty.
But you also get plenty of fun extras that you wouldn’t expect. Like how the scatter symbol is an overlay over any other symbol. So instead of taking up space, 3 little flames will pop up a quick mini-game where Charlie will jump from hot plate to hot plate, randomly giving you an extra feature.
Will he trigger a win spin where you are guaranteed a win? Or 25x your bet? An instant cash prize of extra random wilds? Or maybe 8 free spins with even more chances of catching all those features in a row?
This is still a classic slot, let’s not deny it. If you don’t like it, you won’t like the extra bells and whistles. But with a unique theme and some fun surprises, this Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay slot gets our vote.

Wild and Multiplier: The wild symbol can appear on its own or stacked. It may even occasionally have 2x or 3x multiplier. The Wild Multipliers on the same payline can multiply each other up to x27.
Scatters and Feature Board: There are 3 scatter overlay symbols that can appear on any symbol on the reels. When you get 3 on any time you'll play the feature board where Charlie will jump around hell and trigger any of the following:
Free Spin Bonus: During the free spins, the scatters are collected, rather than having to wait to get three in one spin. So you get the feature board more often.
We think this Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay slot will surprise even the most hardened gambler, even if you don't get to play infinite reels like in Gods of Gold slot, or choose your own character a lá Street Fighter 2 slot review.
But this is a real money slot that you can pick up and immediately know what's going on, without having to read complicated paytables and ways to win.
Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay is a 3 reel 5 payline slot with wilds, multipliers and scatters that could trigger re-spins and free spins.
It's a great modern take on what a classic 3 reel game should be all about, and anyone can place a bet with the low minimum of 0.10 a spin. If you are a fan of Charlie, you might also enjoy Big Win Cat slot, also by Play'n GO.
