Third time’s the charm as Play’n Go claims our SOTW award

Charlie Chance

Play’n Go has claimed our Slot of the Week award with the release of Charlie Chance and the Curse of Cleopatra, the third instalment to its Charlie Chance series.

The 6×6 cascading slot sees the explorer face-off against the merciless Cleopatra and features a Serpent’s Trail feature, Cleopatra’s Columns and free spins with win multipliers. 

“Players love our Wilde and Dead series, and we know that that’s in large part because of the lavish narratives that they provide. Not to mention the wealth and riches associated with the treasures of great pharaohs, they provide such cool gameplay both visually and audibly,” remarked Play’n Go’s head of games, Charlotte Miliziano.

“The style of the Charlie Chance games means that we’ve been able to explore Ancient Egypt in a different way. The black and white cartoon style is very different to the Dead series for example, and I’m certain players will love this title too.”

In the base game, symbols drop onto the grid as five or more adjacently connected symbols in a cluster awarding a win. Here, winning symbols are removed with new symbols cascading down to fill the empty spaces. 

Furthermore, three consecutive cascades increase the win multiplier by one, to a maximum of x3 in the base game and x10 in the free spins mode. 

On random spins, five to eight flying scarab wilds will fly and land onto the grid. Moreover, the wild symbol substitutes for all symbols except the scatter.

Moreover, the Serpent’s Trail feature may trigger on random non-winning spins. Once this happens, a snake appears on the grid and creates a chain of symbols, which are then transformed into matching symbols or destroyed. 

Cleopatra’s Columns may also be activated on a random spin which results in a pair of reels landing with an identical order of symbols on both. New symbols arriving via winning cascades will not be synchronised. 

The Charlie mega is another symbol which can land here. Once this appears, wins are paid out and the symbol sticks into position for the cascade. Then, any low-paying symbols that are touching the aforementioned symbol are destroyed with new symbols filling the empty spots.

Finally, if the player lands three scatter symbols, it awards eight free spins. Within this mode, the win multiplier is increased with every three cascades in a row. All of the above mentioned features are active within the free spins round. 

The title comes with an RTP of 96.25 per cent with a medium volatility level implemented within the gameplay. Readers who would like to read more about Play’n Go’s Charlie Chance and the Curse of Cleopatra can click here to be redirected to the supplier’s official website.
