A spacecraft leaving the surface of Earth, for example, needs to be going about 11 kilometers (7 miles) per second, or over 40,000 kilometers per hour (25,000 miles per hour), to enter orbit. Achieving escape velocity is one of the biggest challenges facing space travel.

History of slotmachines

Who invented the 1st slotmachine?

Many people believe that the first slotmachine was invented by Charles Fey around 1895. It consisted of three spinning reels containing a total of five symbols, Horseshoes, diamonds, spades, hearts and a bell (Liberty Bell), from which this machine took its name.By reducing the symbols in the reels, he was able to develope a machine with automated payout system. Liberty Bell was a huge success, and a new era of slotmachines and massproductions did begun.


Sitman and Pitt

These gentleman developed a slotmachine, that was a precursor for modern machines. It was based on poker and had 50 card faces and 5 drums. This machine didnt have a direct payout system though, so for example 2 pairs gave you a free beer etc in the bar. The awards were completly dependant where the machine was installed.


Bally and Money Honey

In 1963, Bally developed the first fully electromechanical slot machine called money honey. Though earlier the High Hand a poker machine by Bally had exhibited the basics of electromechanical construction only in 1940. The electromechanical approach of the 1960s allowed the money honey to be the first slot machine with a bottomless hopper and automatic payment combinations, up to 500 coins, without the help of an attendant.


The Video Slot

The first true electronic slot (video slot) was developed in 1976 by N. Cerracchio, R. Greene, W. Beckman, J. Reukes, and L. Black in the company Fortune Coin Co., Las Vegas, NV. This slot machine used a modified 19-inch color screen of the Sony boards and software for all machine functions. The original machine was incorporated in a cabin – slot. The first video slot machine was placed at the Hilton Hotel in Las Vegas and after some security modifications against cheating of the machine; it got approval from the state of Nevada


Modern times

Now there is all kind of slots and games, and most of them are based on highperforming computers and graphics with lots of functions. Some of them are online, but there still is a huge number physical machines in casinos all over the world, and it will propably stay like that!

Chanz has several hundreds games from different providers, so maybe its time to take our Welcome offer and check them out!

Always play responsible!


Casino terms explained

General terms explained

Here we will explain to you some of the general terms that Chanz and other casinos are using in the marketing and other communication with players.


When you are playing slots, you normally pay for every round you make. But sometimes Chanz can give you freespins, this means that you are playing for free. Freespins have a pretermined value, that is often the lowest value available for the game, often 0.10-0.20 EUR per spins. All the wins you make from freespins you can usually keep, there is some restrictions though, so always check the terms and conditions or contact our customer service for more info!


We also have bonuses that you can claim as in any other casino. Usually it is a so called “deposit” bonus, which means that you need to make a deposit, and in addition to that we will give you bonus money in top of that. Our welcome bonus gives you 100%, so if you deposit 50 EUR, you will get 50 EUR bonus to that. These bonuses comes with wagering. At Chanz you generally needs to wager the bonus 35 times before you can make a withdrawal. So if you get an bonus of 50 EUR, you need to wager in slots for 1750 EUR before you can make a withdrawal. Usually there is some other terms attached, as maximum bet that you can use and the list of forbidden games during the bonusplay. These are explained in the campaign rules and our customer service is always happy to help if you need more information about wagering.

No Deposit

It is excactly how it sounds: No Deposit needed. This can be freespins or bonus. They can have some wagering restrictions, and also can carry an max cashout.


This is a term, that is used when you deposit money to your own casino account. You can usually deposit via your own bank (Trustly, Euteller, Entercash etc), Visa/Mastercard and different kind of e-wallets. Usually the lowest deposit amount is 10 EUR, but there can be some variation to this depending on the deposit method and country.


Great! You are ready to take some cash home? You usually need to withdraw with the same method and account you used to deposit. Often there is also a minimum withdrawal amount like 20 EUR. There might also be fees attached, normally these apply for e-wallet withdrawals and deposits. When your withdrawal is accepted, you usually get it in your bank within 1 banking day, some times even faster! E-wallet payments are normally instant after approval.

KYC – Know your Customer

Sometimes a casino need to know who you are. They might ask you to send some documentation to prove your identity and payment methods. These can include:

  • ID card or passport
  • Screenshot of your payment method and deposit.
  • Proof of address. Usually this is any invoice that has your name and address in it, and is not older than 3 months
  • SOW (Statement of Wealth). This is not as common, but sometimes casinos need to see where your money to gambling is coming from. This is required by anti-money laundering directives within the EU. This can include recent payslips and other proof of income like deposits from other casinos etc.


We have a dedicated document for RTP (Return to player) here.

Responsible gaming

BlackJack – the basics

BlackJack – What you need to know

BlackJack has relatively small house edge, and following few simple steps, you can reduce it from 1-2 percent to 0.5 percent.

And house edge is a term used to describe the mathematical advantage that the game has over you as you play over time.


Basic Strategy

Memory. That is your best help in this game. But we are not talking about counting the cards, regular players usually never make it as card counter, but there is several other simpe rules, that can give you larger possibilities to beat the dealer.

  • Stand when your hand is 12-16 when the dealer has 2-6.
  • Hit when your hand is 12-16 when the dealer has 7-Ace
  • Always split Aces and 8s
  • Double 11 versus the dealer’s 2-10
  • Hit or double Aces-6

And what about insurance? Most players dont need to risk with this, unless you are counting the cards. Insurance is essentially another new bet and is based on whether the dealer has blackjack or not. Generally the house has almost 6 percent advantage over the player with an insurance bet.

Also check always the dealer’s up card, is it bad (2-6) or good (7-A). What the dealer has makes the difference what action you should take.

One good advice to remember is not to sit on the first seat. Sitting further down will give you more time to review your hand and your strategy.


Play responsible and within your limits

Set a limit how much your ok with losing without limiting how much you win. Some statistic reveals, that around 75 percent of players in casino will be winning at some point, but only few percent of them go home as a winner. If you are a losing streak, move on. Never gamble and try to recoup your losses.

Roulette School by Chanz

Roulette Basics

Have you ever fancied to try the roulette, but are not sure how its played? Well, here you are, and we have written a small info package for you to read!

Roulette is fairly basic concept, but there is still quite a lot to know. Normal reaction for newcomers is to be littlebit shocked when they see all the option on the board.

The basics are quite simple, or not… Guess the number, let the croupier spin the wheel, and if you guess right, you win!

The Roulette Wheel

American Roulette has 38 numbers: 1 through 36, 0 and 00. As you might have seen, the numbers are either red or black, and the 0 and 00 are green. Each round, the wheel is spun by the croupiers, and the ball is released onto it. As soon as the ball has about two more revolutions to go, the croupier calls “No more bets” and shortly the ball will be landing on one of the numbers, which is ofcourse the winner.

In the European Roulette there is 37 numbers, 1 through 36 and 0.

For the rest of this article, we are talking about European Roulette.

Types of bets that are to be made

The roulette table is comprised by two sections – bets on invidual numbers and so called group bets. Players can take advantage of two main categories of bets: Inside and Outside bets. The outside bets encompass larger group of numbers, and the inside bets are on single number. To make it more exciting, most of the bets offer different odds of winning, and this means also different payout from each other. For beginners, it can be littlebit challenging since payouts and odds are usually not listed on the board, with the exception of the columns bet’s payout.

Inside bets

1. Straight-Up Bet – it is placed on any single number, including “0”, and directly on the number. Its payout is 35 to 1.

2. Split Bet – it features two adjacent numbers and is placed on the line between these numbers. The bet may also include 0 and 1, 0 and 2, 0 and 3. Its payout is 17 to 1.

3. Street Bet – it features all three numbers in a row and is placed on the line at the end of the row. There are other options for its placement as well – it can include 0, 1, 2; 0, 2, 3. Its payout is 11 to 1.

4. Corner Bet – it features a group of four numbers and is placed at the corner where these four numbers touch. The bet can also be placed on the corner of 0, 1, 2, and 3. Its payout is 8 to 1.

5. Line Bet – it features six numbers (or two rows of three numbers) and is placed at the end of two rows, on the border between them. Its payout is 5 to 1.

Outside bets

1. Column Bet – it features an entire column and is placed on the ”2-1” box at the end of a column. Its payout is 2 to 1.

2. Dozen Bet – it features a group of 12 numbers and can be placed on the ”1st 12” box (1 to 12), the ”2nd 12” box (13 to 24), or the ”3rd 12” box (25 to 36). Its payout is 2 to 1.

3. Bet on Color – it features all of the red numbers or all of the black numbers on the layout and is placed on the ”Red” box (all red numbers) or the ”Black” box (all black numbers). Its payout is 1 to 1.

4. Bet on Odd/Even – it features all even numbers or all odd numbers on the layout and is placed on the ”Even” box (all even numbers) or the ”Odd” box (all odd numbers). Its payout is 1 to 1.

5. Bet on Low/High – it features all low numbers or all high numbers and is placed on the ”Low” box (numbers 1 to 18) or the ”High” box (numbers 19 to 36). Its payout is 1 to 1.


Other rules

If the player places an even money outside bet (Even/Odd, Low/High, Red/Black) and the winning number is 0, they are able to call “en prison” rule. In this case, the player will either receive half of his/hers bet, or the entire bet will be held in “prison”. If the imprisoned bet turns out be a winner on next spins, it will be released and the player will get it back without any earnings. But wait, there is always an exception: If the ball lands on zero on the next wheel spins, it now becomes a matter of debate, and depends on the table rules on that country/casino. So you need to check that on the spot.

So, now you are ready to hit the table! Chanz offers you many different kind of roulettes, and even Live Casino, where you can hit the numbers!

Finnish Swedish Heritage Day

Svenska Dagen

Finnish Swedish Heritage Day (in Swedish: Svenska Dagen, Finnish: Ruotsalaisuuden päivä) is a general flag day in Finland, which is celebrated 6th of november.

This day celebrates the swedish-speaking population in Finland, their bilingually and culture.

Svenska Dagen was created in 1908 when the new founded Swedish People Party of Finland started to celebrate it.

In 1930, there was huge streetlights initiated by the language barriers between the different language groups in Finland

During the 2nd world war things calmed down, and officials wanted to highlight the unity of Finnish people despite the language barriers.

The song that is most connected to the Svenska Dagen is “Modersmålets sång” written and composed by Johan Fridolf Hagfors. The day is also celebrated everywhere in “Svenskfinland” with dinners, performances and entertainment

There are four traditional areas of Svenskfinland:

Nyland (Uusimaa), northern coast of the Gulf of Finland, from Hangö (Hanko) to Pyttis (Pyhtää), including the capital Helsingfors (Helsinki);
Åboland, Åbo (Turku) and archipelago to the southwest from Åbo;
Svenska Österbotten (Pohjanmaa), eastern coast of the Gulf of Bothnia from Sideby (Siipyy) to Karleby (Kokkola);
Åland (Ahvenanmaa)

Ps. Did you know that you can use Chanz Casino with many different languages, just go to your profile, scroll down and select the language you want to use!

Below you can listen the “Modersmålet Sång” performed by Ekenäs gymnasium.
