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!

Narcos – NetEnt Slot

Narcos Review

🇸🇪 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.

  • Rows: 3
  • Reels: 5
  • Paylines: 243

The Dog House by Pragmatic Play

Slot Review – The Dog House

Basics

The Dog House is quite simple 5-reel and 20-playline slot from Pragmatic. It looks charming, but dont let the graphics fool you. What you have here is an highly volatile slot with extremly high win potential. As the name says, this canine themed slot has lot of variance with bet sizes ranging from 0.20 and 100 EUR. 

During the regular play, there are multipliers ranging from 2 to 3. These are having an extra function during the freespins, since they will lock in place when they land to the reels. This is like Dead or Alive by NetEnt but is much more funnier version of it.

Features

Freespins bonus will trigger when you get jewel paw symbol on reels 1, 3 and 5 at the same time. This will lead you to a animated shed, where a wooden machine will reveal how many freespins you have been awarded. The lowest amount of freespins you can get is 9, and the highest one 27.

As mentioned earlier, any multiplier wilds will lock in place during the free spins game when they appear. Also new reel strips come into play where premium symbols appears fully stacked.

Conclusion

The Dog House is quite simple game, but entertaining. It has high win potential when the multiplying wilds are connected, but it also has high volatility.

Reels: 5

Rows: 3

Paylines: 20

RTP: 96,51%

Max Payout: 6750 x

Volatility: High

Bets: 0.20 – 100 EUR

Dragon Horn – Thunderkick

Dragon Horn review

Well, we have an interesting slot here guys. Big part of the slots that are released recently are Megaways, and frankly, they are getting quite boring. Dragon Horn is a solid 243 ways to win and 5 reel slot from Thunderkick, and its potential is amazing! We can mention the Free Spins function separetly already here, it is very promising!

 

General

The game has a medieval theme, and you will find elves, orcs and knights in this 243 – 5 reel slot from Thunderkick. It is suitable for all players, bet size starts from 0.10 EUR and ranging up to 100 EUR per spin. And as usual, it is compatible with desktops, and other mobile devices. It will also feature a mystery symbol, that will transform to a random symbol during the game, and an amazing bonus game, that will take you through 5 kingdoms and finally to dragons lair. And no need to say, great treasures are waiting for you at the end!

Features

Dragon Fire

In the base game, the Dragon Fire symbol will randomly transform to a character symbol including the scatter. This will increase the potential to get the bonus game. If you get this symbol in the bonus game you will win freespins. During the freespins every new Dragon Fire will award you one extra spin.

Scatters

When you collect 3 scatters, a map will open and give you a visualisation of your progress to the new level. When you have advanced to a new level, one of the shield symbols will turn to a Dragon Fire symbol for the remaining of the feature starting from the lowest value symbol. Effectively this will mean that all lower symbols can turn to mystery symbols, and this means a win potential up to 8282 times your stake!

Final words

This slot is guaranteed Thunderkick quality and it is an excellent adventure game. The Free Spins and Bonus games are visually good and entertaining. It is packed with charm and “old time” feelings. It is a high volatile game, and it can go hundreds and hundreds of spins without decent pay or bonus game, but we think its worth it. This game has huge win potential and we are sure it will be popular amongst the players.

 

Play Dragon Horn at Chanz here.

 

Always play responsibly.

Visit to Kasside Turvakodu in Tallinn

Kasside Turvakodu

 

Chanz staff was priviledged to visit this wonderful place that is run completly by volunteers and donations. Currently the cat shelter in Tallinn city center has approx. 50 cats, and maximum to take in is around 60 felines. 

We met Laura and Küllike, who have both volunteered there some time, and had a short interview with them. This will be published as podcast later on in co’operation with Finnish podcast station Kattiradio.

At the end of this article you will also find some pictures taken during our visit.

General information

Kasside Turvakodu has been operating since 2004, and they moved to the current premises in 2007. It is a so called “No Kill” shelter, and the cats are coming from other shelters, that dont have space for them anymore or some other reason. All cats are vaccinated, microchipped, neutered, and vet checked regularly. Kasside Turvakodu has 2 safe houses, one in Tallinn City Center, and one in Viimsi, just outside the Tallinn.

Daily Routines in the shelter

The furry felines are attended and taken well care in the house. The day starts in the morning by cleaning, checking the cats wellbeing, feeding them and there will be time for playing with the cats also! The work is never done, and there is several shifts and volunteers attending the daily routines. If you are living in Tallinn and want to volunteer, you will find the contact details at the end of this article.

 

Adoption Process

Yay! Forever Home! That is what everyone wants! There is a process if you want to adopt a cat from here that needs to be followed. You will be required to fill in a form with your details. There will be also an interview, that you understand how to take care of your new family member. Having a pet is not just fun, there is obligations. What if your pet gets sick? Can you afford the treatments? Do you know what kind of food your pet eats? There is lots of responsibilities, and Kasside Turvakodu staff wants to make sure that you are aware of them.  You can find all the purrfect felines available for adoption from here.
