This week NetBet’s Game of the Week is Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay, a unique vintage-inspired slot game from Play’n GO. At first glance, we loved the 1920s cartoon-inspired graphics and the clever double-meaning of the game’s names, and we know that Play’n GO rarely (if ever) disappoint when they release a new slot game, so we took a deep dive into the game and quickly realised that it was indeed something special.
It’s understandable that before you spin the reels on a new slot game, you need to know a bit more about it and what makes it stand out from the crowd; that’s why we’ve compiled this quick review. We’ll outline:
- How to play
- Features and benefits
- Mobile responsiveness
- Demo mode
But first, where exactly does the slightly unusual theme of this game come from?
The Inspiration Behind Charlie Chance in Hell to Pay
You’d be forgiven for being a little nonplussed by the title of this game, but there is indeed a specific source of inspiration behind it: the designers over at Play’n GO have loosely based the game on the stories of Charlie Chan. Still not sure? That’s no wonder – Charlie Chan is a character from way back in the 1920s novels by Earl Derr Biggers. Charlie Chan is a brave and adventurous Hawaiian detective who gets into all kinds of scrapes, now given a new lease of life for the pleasure of your lucky slots game players!
