Casino Review – Chanz Casino
Last updated: 12 April 2021
Breaking out of the former Soviet enclave which is now Estonia, comes Chanz Casino.
If you wanted to do some investigative research on this operation then you won’t get any clues from the Chanz landing page. There’s very little to the Chanz back story, instead you’ll need to refer to other review sites who all appear to be reading off the same page as each other.
For something unique, Chanz put some focus on the ability to use social media platforms to embellish game play by way of user interaction and posting interaction. Obviously this is designed to try and capture new sign-ups for which you get credited much like a commission. Good idea, it’s a wonder that other casinos haven’t cottoned on to it themselves.
At first glance, the landing page appears useful enough, but it is seriously missing some advocacy-related information such as direct links to responsible gambling, an FAQ section, About Us, licensing detail, and geo-restrictions.
We mention the following in detail further down the page but the casino is lacking in multiple game providers and hence games, generous bonus promotions and multiple withdrawal methods. Read on.
Please note: for our Australian readers, Chanz has a geo restriction on Australia and the Norfolk Islands, so you’ll be unable to sign up and verify your credentials for this casino.

Remember, Australian users are blocked from this casino.
Chanz has an interesting take on how an online casino should operate. The whole social media integration thing definitely has legs, but is less useful to those who don’t buy into the walled garden eco-system of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. For me personally, it has limited to no appeal for that reason.
Before I think about investing time and money into a casino, the ability to undertake due diligence is important to me. The adage being is that you don’t throw away your money for nothing. Chanz unfortunately provides very little in the way of upfront and useful information to aid you in your research. Whether this is on purpose or oversight is something only they can answer.
Assessing Chanz leads back to one single word: “limitations”.
- Only one withdrawal method.
- Only a handful of game providers.
- As a result, not many games on offer compared to other casinos.
- Limited appeal to a global audience.
- Frugal bonuses.
- No real useful background information on their Casino operation.
For those of you willing to take a punt on this casino, rest assured that it appears to be a legitimate operation, it’s just lacking for many things to make it worthy of return visits.
