7Casino is a new member of the reputable BGO Group, a company that takes credit for the success of BGO Casino, Chilli Casino, Vegas Luck Casino and a couple of other highly-rated brands. Launched in 2019, its nicely designed website with a retro feel instantly makes it clear the gaming library is diverse enough to please any casino fan. Unlike most of its competitors, 7Casino doesn’t hide any of the important stuff in the footer area; menus positioned on the left-hand side provide access to games, promotions, VIP section, T&C, Help and other relevant pages.
The gaming catalogue consists of about 600 RNG and live games supplied by top-tier developers. New members will receive a rare treat in the form of no-deposit free spins without a wagering requirement and no cap on maximum winnings. Many more will become available once the player funds their account for the very first time and again the winnings will be credited to their cash balance in full.
Players can opt in to the 7Club, a loyalty scheme that allows them to earn a new reward every 7 days. Playing with real cash unlocks levels and increases the value of the weekly prize from 5 Free Spins available at level 1 to £300 in cash offered at level 10. At the same time, real money play is rewarded with Diamonds exchangeable for perks in the Casino’s Rewards Store. Invite-only VIP program provides exclusive benefits such as bonuses and cashbacks, trial of new games before their official release, higher limits on live dealer tables, gifts tailored to the player’s likes and hobbies, invites to music concerts, sports events and theatre shows.
Software and Games
7Casino is a no-download gaming site powered by Playtech. It’s not a single-provider affair, though; players can also enjoy products developed by NetEnt, Microgaming, Quickspin, Blueprint Gaming, Realistic, Eyecon, IGT, Inspired Gaming and Red Tiger. The website is exceptionally user-friendly when it comes to finding the kind of games you’re likely to enjoy the most. The collection can be filtered by category, supplier or themes, the latter including Animals/Nature, Christmas, Egyptian, Fairy Tales, Halloween, Irish, Jewels, Myths & Legends, Oriental, Superhero and more. You can also check what’s currently trending, all-time favourites and recently added titles.
If you’re into traditional slots, explore the group labelled Fruits/Classic or go to Home page to display Retro 3-Reelers. Progressive jackpot games have a section of their own and most offer a 6-figure top reward though you’ll also find a couple willing to pay multiple millions. It’s clear that 7Casino provides more than enough options for slots fans, but what about players that aren’t that keen on spinning reels?
There are several RNG roulette games, most of which play by standard European rules but one can also find a couple of Playtech’s unique variants. A very small choice of card games includes baccarat and blackjack with optional side bets, several board games and a small collection of virtual sports.
The alternative is to play against live dealers in a Playtech-powered Live Casino. It’s home to 15 Live Roulette tables with bet limits ranging between £0.1 and £10. Fans can pick between standard European, French and American game variant or try to win more in Spread Bet, Age Of The Gods Roulette and new Quantum Roulette with multipliers attached to certain Straight Up wagers and a special event called the Quantum Boost enhancing them even further. Playtech’s lobby additionally offers access to 14 Live Blackjack tables with limits of £1-£1,000, 8 Live Baccarat tables accepting bets of £5-£500, several Live Poker tables (£0.50-£250), Live Hi-Lo and Spin A Win.
Banking and Payment Methods
In addition to PayPal, the operator accepts payments executed via Visa, MasterCard and Maestro, Skrill, Neteller, Interac and PaySafeCard. Available methods may vary dependent on your location so it’s best to double-check your options at the cashier. The minimum deposit is £10 and there don’t seem to be any limits attached to withdrawals; 7Casino website states that “you have the right to withdraw your deposit balance at any time”. However, all casino games except for progressive jackpots have a maximum payout limit of £250,000 on any single wagering round.
Payout request remains pending for up to 24 hours during which you’re free to cancel it and use funds to continue playing. If you don’t, the operator will carry out security checks and process your withdrawal. It may then take 3-5 working days to receive the money if using cards or bank transfers but it’s pretty much instant with online wallets like PayPal. Unfortunately, there will be fees to pay – a tax offset fee of 2.5% (minimum 50p) for any deposit below £500 (regardless of payment method used) and a £2.50 fee for all withdrawals. If you request an international bank transfer, the operator may also charge an additional fee of £15.
The Casino is licensed and regulated by the Alderney Gambling Control Commission for services offered outside of Great Britain and the UK Gambling Commission for British players. Both of these organizations are exceptionally strict and continuously monitor their licensees to ensure they operate in line with license terms. Should you encounter a problem and disagree with the resolution offered by the Casino’s management, you can proceed to ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution). eCOGRA provides this service to residents of Great Britain and the AGCC does the job for other players.
Members’ funds are held in a separate bank account from the Casino’s business accounts but you should be aware that doesn’t mean funds will be protected in the event of insolvency. However, the parent company BGO Limited promises to provide financial support needed for 7Casino to meet its liabilities, and should the website cease to operate, BGO will do whatever it can to pay the money back.
The usual tools protect safety of information transferred online and integrity of the gameplay. All data exchanged between your computer and the Casino’s server is encrypted and RNGs regularly tested to make sure game results are consistently random.
Contact Info and Social Activity
The operator employs a competent team of customer support agents but gives them time off which means they won’t necessarily be available when you get stuck. Service is available 7 days a week from 07:30am to 01:00am and the choice of contact options consists of Live Chat, phone and email. You may, however, want to check the FAQ page first, especially if help is needed outside of these working hours. The list does address many important questions including those related to registration, payments and promotions.
The BGO team has enough experience to know what works and what doesn’t, and for the most part, it has provided everything a player may wish for at 7Casino. The gaming library is equally satisfactory in terms of quantity and quality, wager-free welcome offer a truly rare and highly appreciated gift, lack of withdrawal limits appealing for both low and high-rollers, and two operating licenses a good enough proof of safety and fairness. At the same time, there are those pesky transaction fees applied not only to withdrawals but also deposits and that’s a huge disadvantage. We also don’t like the fact that live support isn’t available 24/7.
