The cartoon character Charlie Chance actually seems to have been bombed by Play’n GO into becoming the leading character in a series of slots. Charlie Chance XreelZ is the second part, after the very nice Charlie Chance In Hell to Pay slot, which was released a year earlier.
If you have ever played the first Charlie Chance slot, you will recognize the setting. The ever-scared Charlie Chance ended up in Hell for some reason (maybe he was just a jerk of a human). He must fight his way to the exit amid hellfires, devils and other monsters.
The attractive graphics, the mesmerizing music and the detailed visuals all combine to give a remarkable experience when playing this slot game. So don’t be surprised if you end up playing this game for hours. It really gets your attention and holds it for a while.
The playing field has 5 reels with 3 rows of symbols and contains 243 ways to win. Symbols may therefore appear criss-cross on the reels, from left to right. You bet from 0.10 euros per spin and that goes up to 100 euros per spin.

Don't be fooled by the cute, cartoon-like graphics: this is a high variance slot, which can reward you with big payouts (up to 20,000x) but can also make your balance shrink like snow before the burning hell. The theoretical payout percentage is 96.25% by default. The skulls are wild and substitute for all symbols except the scatters. Five wilds will give you 20x the bet.
Premium symbols consist of Charlie Chance, bells, devils and the “666” symbol, accounting for between 2x and 20x the total bet on five of the same.
Three or more scattered symbols of the female devil give the free spins bonus.
You always win 10 free spins, but by means of respins you can try to spin extra scatters and therefore also higher multipliers:
- Three scatters: 10 Flaming Free spins, with multipliers of x2, x3 and x5.
- Four scatters: 10 Inferno Free spins, with multipliers of x5, x6 and x8.
- Five scatters: 10 Hellfire Free spins, with multipliers of x8, x8 and x25.
During the free spins, there is always at least one wild on the reels, which changes position after every spin. Multiple wilds can also appear on the reels, which can make for huge payouts, especially if you have the Inferno - or the Hellfire Free Spins.
Apart from the fact that all those concoctions of slot providers for "new" game mechanics (xWays, xNudge, Mega Fission, InfinyReels, Infinity Reels, Coinverge and now XreelZ) make us crazy, we think Charlie Chance is a very nice slot.

Play’n GO made a huge mistake with Candy Island Princess, but it takes revenge a week later with this slot. The black and white cartoon graphics, with a high Betty Boop content and the free spins bonus, with huge win potential, ensure an entertaining game where you will win big every now and then.
Poor Charlie Chance is still just as scared as he was in the first part. It would be funny if Charlie suddenly throws off all trepidation in the unavoidable third part and turned out to be a superhero in disguise all the while.
