About the casino: 7casino is a smaller online casino, part of the Bgo Entertainment Ltd network.
Like all websites of this group, it has a UK gambling license (considered to be the best possible licence) and an Alderney license too.
The other gambling platforms of the BGO casino group are Vegasluck, Chili, Powerspins and the main casino is bgo. I personally played in bgo (spelled officially as “bgo” all lowercase, pronounced be-go) for years, and I trust this group. They are definitely legitimate, but I still don’t recommend them.
/Comment: This is not a shady casino, if you win, you will get your money, even if you win big. In fact, I once won around €10 000, no problems, no unnecessary delays (mandatory ID check of course, but no unnecessary delays above what is required by anti-money laundering laws, I got the money, and that’s all that matters)./
Bgo Entertainment Ltd. is one of the bigger gambling networks in operation, with about 200 employees (according to the UK company registry, 200-300 employees, divided among 5 separate online casinos).
One of the criteria I use to tell whether a casino can be trusted or not, is whether it has been around for a sufficiently long time, and BGO Entertainment Limited and all of their casinos on average have been in business for at least 8 years (that’s the average number,e.g.: bgo.com, the main casino has been in operation for about 15 years).
In this review I will mention many of the same things I mentioned already in the other reviews of the other casinos of this network, because they have the same games, a shared customer service program, the same loyalty program and therefore the same strengths and weaknesses as well.
They are basically just copycats of each other, the only difference is the name and the design of the website (and even that’s not very different looking IMO).
|If you don’t have time to read the full review below, just read this short summary: First of all, 7casino and all of the Bgo Entertainment casinos do not accept players from the USA.
They have around 700+ games from the best software developers, which is an okay selection, but nothing to write home about (there are many big platforms with much more).
The platform has some live games too, with chat interaction (Deal or No Deal is probably the best of what they have) but they don’t have sports betting or poker.
Other online casinos have more and better games. I can not recommend them. It’s just a boring, average, uninteresting online casino. And there others who have more games, sports betting and poker as well.
There is no point in choosing them over the better alternatives (their promotions are also very bad).
Instead of this online casino, I wholeheartedly recommend the following gambling platform (click to see). They have significantly more, 1500+ games, and they have real sports betting and poker too. And they have been around for 20+ years, it’s currently the best rated online casino on this site, a rare 10/10. And it is my current personal favourite as well (also does not accept US players).
/If you are from the USA I recommend this casino, you can read the full review here. This one accepts US players, and it is the best rated US casino on the site currently./
7casino review methodology
Click on the drop down menu below if you are interested in the review process, methodology, and the system by which each casino is reviewed, scored, compared and evaluated.
And also, you can read the detailed explanation as to why US player accepting, and non US player accepting internet casinos differ so much.
7casino review criteria
There are two very different types when it comes to online casinos, casinos, which accept US players, and casinos which do not accept US players. BGO is firmly the latter, not accepting players from the USA or US territories.
This is important to mention, because radically different games are available to both of these types, and they should be reviewed differently.
Primarily European (primarily targeting European players, mostly licensed in Europe, UK gambling licence often) gambling websites always have better and more games, because software providers, due to licensing and legal issues don’t work with casinos, which accept US players.
And it shows.
BGO has over 1100 games, including live dealer games, and it has virtual sports betting as well. While a typical US casino only has about 300-400 games, mostly slots, barely any live dealer games, no unique games, and lower quality games overall (the big names, like NetEnt or Microgaminbg don’t work with US casinos at all). Therefore, a US casino is always going to look bad compared to a European online gambling website.
A good US casino would still be only 3/10 if you compared it to European, non-US casinos. And that is why I rate them separately, US casinos are only compared to other USA casinos.
Therefore, when you see a US casino that is 7-8/10 that would only be a 3-4/10, but it gets a higher score because of the different context, and because it is for different players.
As you can see, US players have it worse, significantly.
And this is also the reason why I don’t advise non-US players to play in US casinos, ever.
Just wanted to mention this, to avoid confusion as to why a 300 games US casino might get the same score as a EU powerhouse with 1000+ games.
Review methodology: In each section I review one of the primary attributes of the casino, these are: list of countries not accepted, list of games, deposit and withdrawal process and methods and uniqueness.
Each of these aspects then gets points ranging from +2, meaning exceptionally good, to -2, exceptionally bad.
Additionally at end of the review I go through what I consider to be less important secondary attributes, such as: live support chat, VIP/loyalty program, mobile compatibility, other reviews, bonuses, promotions, reputation.
At the end I tally all the points and add and subtract them from 10. This will give the final score of the casino. I use a 1 to 10 scale, 10 being the best and 1 being the worst, no 0 or minus scores.

7casino online casino review
1., Who can play: The most important thing for a player in a new casino is whether you can actually play or not, so here is the list of all the restricted countries, 7casino does not accept players from. So before you read any further let’s determine whether you can actually play at the casino at all.
/Clarification: The country of your residence, your official address, what’s on your ID card (or address card if it’s a separate thing in your country) is what you should be checking, not your current residence.
Example: If you are from the UK, and you currently temporarily reside in the US, you can still play, even though US players are not accepted.
It’s important, because if you win, they will ask for your ID and/or address card to make sure you are who you said you are on the registration form, and they will check the address on your ID.
And if it’s not the same as what you put down during registration, they will instantly perma-ban you. And all your winnings will be confiscated, no matter how much you won! Be careful!/
7casino prohibited countries and territories
The list of countries 7casino casino does not accept players from. Click below to expand.
7casino does not accept players from:
- Czech Republic
- France and overseas regions
- Hong Kong
- North Korea
- Sierra Leone
- USA and US territories
- United Arab Emirates
Everyone else can register and play at the casino.
Quite a long list sadly. -1 point for not accepting players from many countries.
I know it’s mostly not their decision, their gambling licences and software developers severely limit from which countries they can accept players from. However, some extra were added, probably due to what is called in the gambling industry “bonus abuse”,
A casino should strive to be accommodating to as many players as possible.
Another -1 point deducted for aggressively pushing registration on the casino’s page.
You can’t check the games, you can’t play with the games in demo mode, and you can’t even read the list of restricted countries or the terms and conditions, which is a huge red flag! You can’t click anywhere without the website aggressively pushing the registration form in your face. I really don’t like it, very agressive, unnecessarily so.
If I want to register at a casino, thank you, but I can find the registration form on my own.
Accessibility, number of countries accepted: -1
2., Games: The second most important thing to regular players is the number, and also the quality of the games. And 7casino hasa mediocre selection.
7casino’s selection of games: The games of 7casino casino are a mix of games from the best casino software providers including: Microgaming, Net Entertainment, IGT, WMS, Bally and Playtech with some interesting smaller ones too like Ash gaming, Blue Gem Gaming, Blueprint Gaming thrown in there to make it more interesting.
However, they only have about 700 games in total, a high quality selection, but the flagship casino has over 1100 games, and competing big online casinos regularly have 1500+.
This is not impressive at all, in fact, it’s mediocre at best, and nowadays, this is just not good enough, -1 points.

Virtual Sports Betting
Football, horse racing, greyhound racing and tennis. The quality of the graphics could be improved to make it more lifelike, they are not very good, and it’s also boring.
Bingo and live bingo.
Most of these games are mobile compatible, except the really old ones.
3., Deposit and withdrawal options: The third most important thing to a player are the deposit and withdrawal options.
You obviously can’t win anything unless you bet real money. And in this area 7casino has no big problems.
Apart from the usual:
7casino accepts Paypal as well.
Because 7casino accepts Paypal for both depositing and withdrawing, it gets a +1 points.
However! For deposits below £/€/$ 500, an additional tax offset fee of 2.5% of the deposited amount is charged. And 7casino charges a $2.5 fee for withdrawal. And for that 7casino gets -2 points.
Additionally, they also don’t accept any sort of cryptocurrencies, but I don’t deduct any additional points for this.
Deposit and withdrawal options: +1
Hidden fees: -2
4., Uniqueness: And the last one I think we all are looking for in an online casino is innovation, unique and interesting new online gambling games and features.
Anything that makes you “Wow, that’s amazing.”.
Does 7casino have the so called ‘wow-factor’?
No. It definitely doesn’t. It’s just an average, boring, forgettable online casino, nothing special, nothing unique, nothing extra, -1 points.
It is just like the hundreds of other digital casinos just a click away. In fact, all of the bigger brands are better than this. I
have a hunch that this particular, neglected subsidiary will be discontinued in a few years, and all the players will be migrated to the main casino.
Innovation, interesting, unique features/games: -1, none
The following are less important optional factors, but still contribute to the total score:
-Live support chat: Live support chat round the clock is a must if you aim to be a top casino.
Does 7casino have 24/7 live customer support?
For a few hours, during the presumably least busy hours there is no live chat (live support is from 8.30am – midnight, every day, GMT+0). Understandable, but still, I give them a deduction of -1 point for this,.
We all like round the clock live chat support, and depending on your time zone it can be really inconvenience. Especially, if you need to contact them with something urgent.
And the players base of an online casino is really diverse, you can’t assume everyone is in the same time zone.
–VIP, loyalty program: They have the same loyalty and VIP program as the flagship casino, and luckily I was a member of the casino group for 6 years, so I know this program very well.
But sadly I can not say anything about the VIP program, I never made VIP (I don’t play with that sort of money).
However, their regular loyalty program is pretty good: because apart from the regular bonuses and promos (,which I really don’t care about, usually 35x+ wagering req. bonuses, not good) they uniquely in the industry give you free (actually free, no wagering requirement, no playthrough requirement!) money on your birthday.
The amount depends on your loyalty level, but still, free money is free money, so they deserve a +1 point. I wish more casinos would do this.
-Mobile compatibility: The casino is mobile compatible, most games work on mobile devices, it’s all pretty user friendly (but you can tell the older games were not designed for such small screens originally, but that’s not the casino’s fault).
All the games are instant-play, accessible right from the browser, no download necessary (on mobile it is necessary, you have to download the app) everything is cross-platform and cross-browser compatible. No point is awarded for this, because nowadays this is pretty much the norm, this is expected from every digital gambling platform.
-Other reviews: It’s always important to check what others say about a casino, to make sure it’s not a scam.
And I can say without a doubt that 7casino, and all casinos of the BGO Entertainment network have okay reviews, usually 5/10 or 6/10, average scores.
Rightfully so, this is an average casino, quite forgettable.
But it’s not a scam and they will pay you your winnings (I was a registered member for 7 years, I can attest to it personally) no matter how much you won.
-Casino bonuses: This is where 7casino is really not doing well, at least right now.
First of all, this is just an exact copy of the same bonus BGO offers, the main casino.
This is very lazy to begin with (all casinos of the network copy the main casino’s bonus, without any change). Not to mention, the current bonus is abysmal, it is only available to UK players and it has an unbelievably high 65x wagering requirement, that’s really bad, -1 point.
Total score: 7casino gets 5/10, 2.5/5 stars. It’s a boring and forgettable, and I don’t recommend it. There are much better online casinos. Don’t waste your time with this one. Check out the other casino reviews or this one, the currently best rated online casino.

Don't worry, this is not an ad! ;) Just wanted to make sure to tell you that I'm glad you visited this gambling blog.
I'm Simon, the only author and the man behind this blog (if you are interested, my unusual life story can be found on the homepage, under the "About me" dropdown section).
I'm an independent gambling blogger since 2012. In this sector dominated by huge media companies, casino operators and online marketing networks, who can easily spend $ millions on their online gambling blogs, it's not easy for an independent nobody like me to survive. It took me about 6 years, working my ass off, to even have a chance to be noticed by visitors like you. I'm lucky enough that for a few years now, I make enough money to be able to do this full time (before that, I had part-time jobs, ghost writing gigs, online marketing this and that).
Now I can finally do this full time, thanks to visitors like you! And it means a lot! If you are interested, please bookmark this site (no social media profiles, I no longer have any, but please feel free to share anything on any social media networks, if you still use them). I don't have any money to advertise, and if you have a personal blog, any social media profile, please mention my gambling blog and link back to it. This the only way for a small website like this to grow. Thank you!
Charity: As a way to help others, to give back, I sometimes donate to Kiva. If you click on the ads on the website, I make some money. And in a good month, if I make more than my expenses, I donate to people and projects on Kiva.
Kiva helps young entrepreneurs in developing countries, which is an issue close to my heart for obvious reasons. If you have the means, please sign up with the revolutionary non-profit company Kiva.org and help people lift themselves out of poverty, through hard-work, and an initial investment (non-profit loan). These non-profit loans encourage entrepreneurship and hard work instead of creating a dependent class that is afraid to get a job, or start a business (because if they did, they would no longer get support and free money, disincentivezing hard work and entrepreneurship). This is the right way to fight poverty in developing countries (or anywhere else really), and if this is something you are interested in, and if you would like to know more, or to help out, please check out Kiva.org here. Thank you!
