For such a new brand, you’ll be delighted to know that 777 online casino has been awarded the title of ‘Best Online Casino of the Year 2015’ by Gaming Intelligence. Except…it hasn’t. Because that award actually went to 888 Casino. And it was for ‘Casino Operator of the Year’. Aside from that misleading quote on the very front page, 777 online casino really does have many good features. The classic American design, the huge number of payment options, and many promotions for new and loyal players are just some of them.
Talking of promotions, let’s have a more thorough look into the welcome bonus: up to £/$200 bonus on your very first deposit. Unlike other casinos where you get this bonus automatically, with 777 online casino you have to input a specific code at the time of depositing (minimum £20). A claim email will be sent to customers, which must be claimed within 48 hours. Players then have 7 days to play through the bonus, with a 30 times wagering requirement. The only other thing worth mentioning is that the Freeplay can only be used towards the promoted games. At the time of writing, that’s 7 games made up of slots, blackjack and roulette options. However, they are good games, so we can’t complain too much, but it’s something to be aware of before you take the leap and sign up.
As we’ve mentioned before, the 777 online casino site is as visually appealing as it is bold. It’s goodbye to the dark and moody templates, and hello to pastel colours, Nevada-inspired landscapes and glitzy lights. It’s almost as if the game visuals come second to the website design, which is unusual for online casino sites. In fact, it’s only when you scroll down to the second landing page that you see a list of games – and even then the list is minimal until you click ‘More’. You’ve really got to know what you’re looking for, because there aren’t any visual clues to grab your attention straight away.
We’ve spoken about the welcome promotions, but what about the other promotions? The ones for regular players that are available throughout the year? Well, 77 online casino has this one sorted. The site has Daily Delights featuring new promotions every single day of the week. For instance, on Jackpot Marathon Mondays players receive 30% up to £100 Freeplay on seven featured jackpot games. And on Fridays, it’s all about the free money, with the potential for a $20 cashback via a crystal ball. Some of the terms used to describe the daily promotions are a little confusing, so it’s best to look into the T&Cs before you begin.
In terms of other promotions, 777 online casino also offers a VIP Casino Club which gives players access to everything from exclusive rewards, promotions and the best entertainment. If you do join 777 online casino, you can use that same username and password to play over at 888 casino. Weirdly, however, if you’re already a member of 888 casino, then you’re not automatically set to play at 777.
Mobile compatibility has been well and truly set up for players. Simply access the 777 online casino site via your mobile device and click ‘Play Now’. There are over 60 instant casino games to get to grips with, and they’ve all been optimised for Android and iOS mobile devices. The 777 online casino app is just as well designed as the website, but some may find that the number of games available isn’t enough to keep them satisfied for long. We do envisage, however, that it’s onwards and upwards for this site, and the number of games available will grow.
The number of payment method options really are great, and we give 777 online casino full marks for this. There’s pretty much every payment method you could want, with most deposits transacted instantly. Withdrawals, on the other hand, aren’t quite as speedy. They generally take around four to five days, unless you’ve hit ‘Gold VIP’ status at the 888 Casino Club.
And then we come onto customer support: unlike other brands, 777 online casino does not have a live chat, which is a slight annoyance. But it does have a free-phone telephone number and email address, with the site saying a customer agent will try to respond within 24 hours. We didn’t have any trouble with this, but it would still be nice to have the option for a live chat.
There are three features that really stand out above all the rest: first, the unique, American-inspired website theme. Secondly, the sheer wealth of payment method options. And thirdly, the huge number of jackpot games, with many topping the £1 million pound mark.
It’s fair to say that 777 online casino does have a real sense of uniqueness and potential, although there are a few things that do need to be rectified before we give it full marks. We’d love to see a live chat implemented, and the design tightened up. It would also be great to see a focus on currency, which seems to jump between dollars, euros and pounds depending on what page we’re looking at. That being said, 777 online casino is one to look out for – it’s got the backing of a successful, established brand, and we predict big things for its future.
