(demo allows up to £1000 bankroll)
(1M size, last updated 2021-10-20)
Requires .NET 3.5 or higher (your PC probably already has it).
Bonus Chum is a Windows application dedicated to help advantage players verify whether an online casino bonus is worth doing or not. Using the powerful but simple interface, you can tweak options such as the bet size, deposit, wagering, bonus percentage, and whether the bonus is a sticky, cashable, cashback or postwager. From this point, BonusChum will speedily calculate the bust rate, EV (estimated value), and unique to this kind of software, the cash per hour and bankruptcy rate.
Those final two stats are often overlooked, but are very important because your time is important, and so is the risk of bankruptcy. The cash/hour rate can show you the value of doing slots over more traditional grinding games such as Blackjack or Video Poker. And the bankruptcy rate can persuade you that the initially tempting 25% bonus is actually just outside the risk you're willing to take.
Whether you're starting off with a mere 1k bankroll, or whether you're a millionaire, Bonus Chum will give you the necessary tools to grow your bankroll, safely, quickly, and timely.
Background and motivation behind BonusChum:I originally created this program for myself when I found the two-tier simulator at BeatingBonuses.com lacked some features I needed, but I quickly realized it was a great tool that could benefit many, so I spent time to forge it into a fully-featured application.
In addition to calculating cash/hour and risk to bank roll, BonusChum allows you to save your own custom paytables. It is also relatively easy to insert figures into the calculator. For example, the bonus percentage and wagering multiplier (e.g: 40x) figures are entered directly - there is no need to do the math and work out the wagering as this is all done for you.
It is also possible to change the house edge for any game. This is useful for say a slot where you know the house edge and approximate variance but don't have the exact paytable to hand. BonusChum has a generic 'Slot' game paytable which you can tailor to suit your needs to cover the thousands of slots that exist.
