Magnus Kirt wins again!

Magnus Kirt wins in Turku, Finland!

57th Paavo Nurmi Games in Turku was held last tuesday with whopping 13,345 people witnessing the event.

Magnus repeated his javelin victory from last year, and started with 86,92m. He had a strong opponent, Thomas Röhler (GE) who started with 86,33m but didn’t improve on the next rounds. Magnus Kirt then proceeded with his best throw in round four, 88,32m.

There was some interesting surprises during the competition when world leader Daniel Ståhl of Sweden fouled all of his three attempts. His first effort, a foul, landed beyond 66 meters, and the two other ones nowhere near.

We here at Chanz wish Magnus all the best and good results on his journey to the top of the world!

5 Lions Gold by Pragmatic

5 Lions Gold review

Pragmatic is doing it again and delivering us a strong, oriental themed 243 payline slot. Did you know that Pragmatic as company has strong ties to Asia, that explains the large presence of Asian and oriental themes in the slots.

Basics

The 5 Lions Gold is not completly new. It is a successor to 5 Lions, that was released last year. This version is almost identical with 243 paylines with 5 reels and 3 rows. The biggest differences are the added Jackpot, paytable and RTP of this version. RTP is is between 95,64 % – 96,52 % because this is a jackpot variant of the game. This slot can be played with bets from 18 cents to 90 Euros per spin.

Features

Jackpots

There is 3 different types of Jackpots: 

  • Minor gives you 15 times your bet
  • Major gives you 250 times your bet
  • Grand gives you whopping 2000 times your bet

There is 2 ways to launch these jackpots. Golden Reels Jackpot can be awarded in both regular play and freespins. In this feature, reels are turning randomly to gold, and if you get 3,4 or 5 golden wheels it then triggers the minor, major or grand Jackpot.

Another way to win the jackpot is Caishen Random Award. This triggers randomly in both regular and freespins play. It will reward you either freespins feature or jackpot bonus game. If you get the Jackpot game, you need to match 3 of the same symbosl, and you will win the Jackpot mentioned in the symbols.

Freespins

This function will be awarded if you land 3 scatters in reels 2, 3 and 4. Then you will be presented 7 options. These options have unique combinations of free spins and multipliers. You can also risk it by selecting the mystery choice and be awarded with random amount of spins and multipliers. If you are really lucky, you can get up to 24 spins and multiplier 40x .

Final words

Maybe this slot dont have the latest graphics and animations, but it guarantees entertainment and with some luck huge wins. It has potential of 7000x wins what is more than enough to get your attention.

Spinsane

Spinsane (NetEnt) review

Basics

When you open this slot at the first time, you will be wondering why there is symbols missing from the reels, why it looks so cheap and how are the wolfs related to the game theme. The slot has 5 reels and 27 paylines and you can bet from 0.10 EUR to 500 EUR per spin.

The reels has a curved design, that is somehow reminding old classic slots and when you win, disco lights will illuminate to celebrate your success. There is also some animation of wolf running during the bonus, but to be frank, all these things seem to be little odd and not related to the game.

On the reels you will see wolf claws, heads and paws. Same symbols with scratch mark will also appear, and they are known as Super Symbols and offers an increased value. There is also a wild symbol, that can appear on reels 2, 3, 4 and 5. The symbols will never fully cover the reels, developers have decided to include lots of blanks here for some reason.

Features

We alrealdy explained the Super Symbols above, and the only other feature here is the Freespins, which will activate if you land 5 or more scatters anywhere on the reels. 1 scatter will give you 2 freespins, so the minimum you will get is 10, or if you get all the possible scatters you will get 30 freespins. During the freespins, every scatter will award you an extra spins. On every spins there will be one fully stacked wild reel to help you win bigger. You can win max 500 times your stake in this function per spin.

Final words

Visually and functionally this slot is quite boring, but it has some potential. You can win up to 5000 times your stake here, but dont get your hopes up for this to happen anytime soon. We feel that this slot has a lot missing, maybe it was designed by some practicants, only NetEnt knows the answer for this.

But we recommend that you will be a judge of that, and will try the game when its launched at Chanz!

Have fun!

Facts:

  • Reels: 5
  • Rows: 3
  • Paylines: 27
  • RTP: 96,26%
  • Max payout: 500 x spins (during Freespins 10 x 500 = 5000 x)
  • Features: Super Symbols, Free spins
  • Release date: June 11, 2019

Patarei – Forgotten prison

Visit to Patarei in Tallinn

Chanz had a possibility to visit in Patarei “Communism is Prison” exchibition earlier this week. Here we have gathered some facts and pictures. Unfortunatly we cannot show all the pictures, since they can be quite shocking, but have selected just a few to show you how it looks inside the prison.

 

History

 

Patarei prison was used by the Soviet Union’s communist regime and also by Germans to imprison thousands of innocent people. The aim for opening it for public is to raise awareness of the inhuman nature of the communist regimes.

The complex was built in mid 19-th century as part of the defence system of Russias capital St Peterburg. Around 1864 it was converted into an army barracks that housed over 2000 soldiers. Paterei served continuously as a penal institution of the Republic of Estonia until 1940, when the totalitarian Soviet Union occupied the country. It was used as a prison after the restoration of national independence as well in 1991–2002. 

Currently almost 10,000 people have been identified who were arrested for political reasons in 1940-1941 and most of them also were locked up in Patarei. Estonias Head of State Jaan Tõnisson was almost sure executed in Patarei by Soviet authorities in 1941.

The unique history of this building, which brings together the repressions of two of the most merciless regimes of the 20th century, places the sufferings, resistance and hopes of thousands of people within the prison walls and has made this complex a site of memory of international importance.

 

How to get there

The exchibition is open Mon-Sun 10am-6pm and last entrance in 5.15pm.

Address: Kalaranna 28, Tallinn.

Link to the location in Google Maps here.

And if those are not important for you, there is lots of other things that keeps you entertained in this slot. This slot has 3 rows, 5 reels and 20 paylines. As the name suggests, it is a jackpot game and every spin wagered contributes 3.8% to the jackpot which starts at 15.000 EUR.

Features

Chanz travels to Ireland

Ireland and Wicklow

Basics

Republic of Ireland is a beautiful Emerald country  located in northwest Europe. It is separated from Great Britain by the Irish sea. Currently it is the 20th largest island in the world and home for almost 6.5 million people. Its capital city is Dublin with almost 1.3 million inhabitants.

Languages spoken here are english and irish.  Ireland runs under democratic nation, and established their present constitution in 1937.

Ireland is known as the Emerald Isle, this is because of its lush greenery and rolling hills. The country receives a lot of rain each year, which keeps the grass green and the plants blooming.

 

Other facts of Ireland

The guillotine was used in Ireland before it was used in France. The earliest use dates back to 1307.

Croaghaun in Ireland is the second highest cliff in Europe.

The longest river in the country is the River Shannon.

Even though legend says that St. Patrick cleared Ireland of snakes, the truth is that these slithering creatures were never able to make it from Britain to the island.

Ireland is home to what could possibly be the oldest pub in the world. It was opened in 900AD.

The Titanic was built in Belfast, Northern Island.

 

Travel

Our staff visited the Wicklow mountains area and did some hiking there in april 2019. As you can see from the pictures, weather was quite cold and damp, so Ireland is maybe not the ultimate travel destination for sunny/beach seekers. It is very easy to travel to Ireland, it is the main base for Ryanair, and many countries all over the world have flights directly to Dublin. From Dublin airport there is good connections to the rest of the country by bus, flight or trains.

Food, drinks and money

In Ireland you will have the time of your life! Pubs and restaurants are everywhere! Just popin for a pint of Guiness and maybe some traditional irish meatpie or stew? Dont be scared if the locals in pub will come and talk to you, Irish people are very friendly and wants to know more about the tourists visiting the country. Pubs and restaurants are place where you go to socialise and make new friends!

Currency used in Ireland is Euro, and you can find atm’s everywhere, and Visa&Mastercard are widely accepted everywhere. If you need to change currency, its best to do in the bank since they offer the best rates. Remember to check the opening times, sometimes banks are closed during the lunch times, or do not handle cash after 1-2pm.

Transportation

Public transportation is in good order here. In Dublin you can use the extensive bus, tram or train network. When travelling with the bus, you can buy a single ticket from the driver in cash, but you wont get any change. For tram and trains there is kiosks at the stations selling tickets. You can also purchase daily/weekly/monthly passes if you staying there longer period of time. There is also regular ferry connections to the UK.

 

Thats all for now, enjoy the pictures below!

🇸🇪 Läs detta på svenska

 

Well, are you ready to meet Grand Theft auto and Narcos by NetEnt? Then you have come to right place! This new slot is planned to be released on 23th of may, and will be available at Chanz.

If you dont know Narcos, you have missed a lot. It is a huge American crime drama series focusing to Pablo Escobar that was released in 2015 exclusively for Netflix. 2nd season was released on 2016.

NetEnt announced this slot already 1.5 years ago in the London iGaming conference, and is now ready to rollout. After seeing the demos and videos, we can surely understand why it took longer than usually to produce this masterpiece.

 

Basics

Narcos is 243 ways to win, 3-rows and 5 reels game. NetEnt usually dont do that much games like this, byt hey, we like it 🙂 It has features like Locked up, Drive-By, Walking Wilds and Freespins.  The game has also a huge payout % of 1506x which is capped to 602,400 EUR.

 

Features

Drive-By

This feature is launched randomly in the base game. When it is activated a sequence is played where a bad guy shoots bullets from a car onto the reels. This will then randomly transform premium symbols to wilds.

Locked Up

This will activate when 3 or more Locked up symbols appear on the same row. When the feature is running, the Escobar symbols are groupped together and assigned a value of 1-10 times of your stake. When 3 or more symbols connects, they form a winning cluster. There is also a Golden briefcase function here, when it connects with winning cluster, one of the following will apply:

  • Upgrade symbols
  • Big Starting Value
  • Multiplier

This feature can give you up to 271 times your stake.

Walking Wilds

We assume that you have played Jack And Beanstalk? The wilds are staying on the reels, and moves to the left with each spin. This feature will stop when there is no more winning combinations in the screen.

Free Spins

Free Spins will launch when you get three scatters on reels 1,3 and 5. It will start with 10 spins, and every spins will feature Drive-By and Walking Wilds can also appear here. This feature is quite hard to trigger, but it can pay up 1506 times your stake.

 

Conclusion

 

There is some serious firepower in this lot, the graphics are excellent and guaranteed NetEnt quality. It will entertain the player with animated sequences. Some negative sides are that features are quite hard to get.
