When you spend all of your time in a fast paced, modern world, sometimes you want something a little different when you get time to escape online. That’s what 777 gives you. The muted tones, old cars, neon signs, milkshakes, and jukeboxes dotted around desert scenery gives the site a charming 1950’s Vegas theme. But the flip of stepping back in time is losing some of the modern day conveniences people have come to rely on. You won’t find a massive variety of games, a jaw-dropping welcome bonus, or endless support options. Depending how you feel about these things, the simplification could be boring or relieving.
Welcome Bonus: You’ll get a 100% first deposit match up to $200 plus 77 free bonus spins, with a wagering requirement of 30x on the bonus amount only.
Games: You can play pretty much any game you would want to play in a casino. But the number of versions is paired down, so you can’t go from theme to theme.
Look: The website theme is well thought out and consistent. While other casino themes seem to disappear once you click off the homepage, 777 keeps detail throughout.
Customer Support: Canadian customers really only have one option: email. There are a few phone numbers included as well, but they are toll numbers for Britain, Germany, and Sweden.
This website isn’t about being flashy or having the most to offer. It’s about simplifying and focusing on quality over quantity. And this is evident in the welcome bonus, which is one of the best deals we’ve come across.
777 offers a 100% match on your first deposit up to $200, and 77 free spins on a variety of games (although they can all be used on the same game if you want).
To get the bonus, you have to make your first deposit with the code WELCOME77. And to withdraw winnings from the bonus, you must meet the wagering requirements within 90 days.
Wagering requirements are 30x the bonus amount only. So, if you deposit $10 and get $10 in bonus money, you have to stake $300 to be able to withdraw. This is one of the lowest wagering requirements we’ve seen at any casino.
It’s important to know all the details to take advantage of this deal. Your spins need to be claimed by email within 48 hours of signing up, and used within 14 days. Each spin is set at $0.25.
Unlike some casinos that just do everything in your chosen currency, note that 777 calculates all bonus money in US currency and converts the amount to your chosen currency. This may be confusing in practice.
Depending on your preferences, the games section of 777 might be a bit of a disappointment or a welcome change from the overwhelming options other casinos deliver.
They have a solid variety of games. If you can play it in a brick and mortar casino, there’s a good chance you’ll find a version of it on 777. But, you won’t find endless varieties of each kind of game.
Under slots, you’ll find just over 40 options, about half of which are jackpots. This is a far cry from the hundreds of versions offered by most online casinos. However, they still manage to squeeze in a decent variety of themes.
Under roulette, you get 4 versions: European, Low Stakes, American, and French. Live games include baccarat, 3 card poker, hold’em, Dream Catcher, and roulette. And card games include two versions of blackjack, baccarat, and triple card poker.
Even if you like the simplified approach to playing, there’s one more thing to consider before signing up. You can’t try the games before you make an account. You need to sign up before you get anywhere.
If you’re already familiar with the games they offer and you know you like a few, this might not be such a big deal. But if you’re not familiar, the fact that there are so few versions means that you’re less likely to find something you love. Proceed with some caution.
If you love playing on mobile, 777 is mobile optimized. Instead of downloading the app, you can just go to the website from your mobile device to play. The website even offers a legend of mobile symbols you might come across when you play to make the transition seamless.
The website designers who worked on 777 clearly thought through the theme. From the muted sorbet tones, to the old cars, the neon signs, the milkshakes, the jukeboxes, each detail dotted around desert scenery gives the site a charming 1950’s Vegas theme.
The supporting features like the cartoon icons and the mix of fonts help give this theme dimension.
The site is also easy to navigate. Pretty much everything you need is laid out clearly in the top navigation bar, which follows you down the page. The one notable exception to the easy exploration is the support/contact information. To find this, you’ll need to scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page.
Games are split into 4 simple categories, and clicking on any of these categories will take you to individual game pages where you not only find all the versions available, but a comprehensive set of instructions on how to play.
This is one of the places where having few games to display really works to the advantage of 777. Other online casinos put instructions on another page, sometimes making it confusing when you’re clicking into the selection of games and when you’re clicking into instructions.
Having everything in one place is a nice feature for new players. Not to mention newbies can get their toes wet without being overwhelmed by too much at once.
If you’re in Britain, Germany, or Sweden, your support options aren’t too bad. But for Canadian players, getting the information you need is extremely limited. There’s really only one option: email.
Although this isn’t ideal, they do mention that they try to respond to inquiries within 24h. Not exactly a guarantee, but at least it gives you a loose time-frame to work with.
To be fair, you can technically call if you really need to, but hopefully you have a stellar long-distance plan, because your only options are toll numbers in Europe.
In our reviews, we try to be fair when casinos don’t offer a lot of contact options. After all, when you have a huge volume of clients from around the globe using your site, you have to make decisions about the types of contact you offer. Offering something like live chat can backfire if you don’t have the structure in place to handle the volume to cover it.
However, there’s a non-contact support option we expect to see: an FAQ section. And this just doesn’t exist on 777. There is plenty of information on their website, but the burden is on you to wade through each link to hopefully find what you’re looking for.
For this reason, support is definitely the weakest aspect of 777. We hope to see them add improved contact options, or at least a thorough FAQ in the future.
If you’re not big on scrolling through hundreds of game options to find what you’re looking for, 777 offers a great variety of casino games, with a paired down number of versions or themes. This site also excels at conjuring a consistent 1950’s Vegas theme. Each detail has clearly been thought through to give the website a consistent look and feel. The only place 777 really falls short is support. Canadians only have one reasonable option available: email. And with a possible 24 hours or more separating you from the information you need, it’s not the most efficient option to meet time-sensitive needs.
