Sometimes you might come across the term RTP when playing online casino games. The definition of this three-letter word is Return To Player. To put things simple, RTP means the theoretical percentage that a casino returns to a player on slot machines. With table games, the term used for this is “house edge”. Both terms RTP and “house edge” refer to the same thing.


First, let’s take a closer look at RTP percentage. Every slot machine has its own RTP percentage which is normally somewhere between 94 to 99. For example, if the RTP of a certain game is 95%, it means a return of 95 euros for an investment of 100 euros. It is important to realise that the RTP percentage applies to a significant number of game plays only, not to each individual occasion the slot is being played. For example, if a slot shows a 95% RTP, you shouldn’t expect to win an average of 95 euros for every 100 euros you stake during a playing session.


When playing online casino games, you need to remember that the house, or the casino, always has the edge. If the RTP of a certain game was 100%, it would also mean, that the player and the casino were in the same position.


What is a good RTP?


You can find the RTP of a certain game normally on the slots’ info page in the casino. In Chanz casino this information is easily available, but if you can’t find the RTP for the game, you can find it easily online. Just use your search engine and type RTP + the game’s name on the search field and you can find the RTP fast and efficiently.


What is a good RTP percent then? As stated above, the RTP normally varies from 94 to 99 in slot games. You should target on games which have an RTP of more than 96. Usually the new casino games have an RTP between 96-98, meaning that below 95 is low and more than 98 is really high. Some games might have an RTP of more than 99, but that usually refers to specially priced bonus rounds which are significantly more expensive for the player than the normal rounds.

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.

The myth and tinfoil hat theory

You might have seen or think this:

 Gosh, this casino is so rigged, no winnings at all. Let me go and play at site XXXXX, the machines there are much more better programmed! The games are surely rigged here! Im sure of it!


Well, you are wrong, let us correct some of the “information” that you have:

  • Online casino is basicly a frontend for slots or other games. The games are not hosted by casino, but the provider, like NetEnt, Microgaming, Pragmatic Play etc. Casino cannot change the outcome of the game. If RTP is to be changed (Return to Player), the provider of the game would first need get an approval from Gambling authorities and do a thorough testing of the game. Summa summarum: It doesnt matter where you play, you have the same chances everywhere.

So shortly:

You just have to get lucky. If you are lucky, you will win. Otherwise be prepared for a loss. Gambling should be fun, and never gamble if you cant afford it.

If you feel that you gamble too much, contact the customer service of the casino immediatly, they can help you to set limits, close accounts and point to you correct direction if you need search help for gambling addiction.



RTP = Return to Player

What is RTP = Return to Player

You might have seen a term called RTP (Return to player) when browsing some casino sites. But what it is? Does it guarantee that you will win?

This can be simply described as percentege of any wagered money that will be paid back to players over a long time of period from slot machines.

How does it work?

It is a long term indicator, so it doesn’t account for what will happen in short term.

Lets have a closer look. If you play 100 EUR in 1 EUR bets, you would theoretically expect to get around 90 EUR back. Please note the word theoretically.  So this does not mean that every play session will return this amount. The wins are awarded randomly. Random games are not compensated just because there has been series of losing play session, or it id does not mean that there will be lots of winning sessions after a loosing streak. Players should only play with stakes what they can afford.

Summa summarum: Playing slots should be fun! Take it as a form of entertainment, and of course if you win, thats nice! Keep on having fun at Chanz!
