Meaning of “Onechan(ワンチャン)”

“Onechan(ワンチャン)” means “Low possibility” or “There might be a possibility” kind of…
This slang is from “one chance”.
This slang has been around for quite some time and has become fairly established so far, I think.

We use like this

“Onechan ikerukamo(ワンチャン行けるかも)!” which means “It might be possible to go, perhaps”
