Get ready for take-off into an exhilarating world of online slots and games at Gate 777 Casino. Founded in 2017 by five veteran gaming enthusiasts, they made some awesome choices for game providers, promotions, gamification and rewards that promises a first-class casino experience. Our review will look at whether it indeed stands out from the crowd.
Gate 777 Casino is operated on the platform of and by White Hat Gaming Limited under stringent licenses from the MGA Malta, the UK Gambling Commission and the Swedish Spelinspektionen. These are some of the most player-friendly licenses, ensuring the games are fair and strict responsible gambling regulations are followed.
My country of residence being on the restricted list, I relied for this review on friends to report me their experiences at Gate777 as well as my own tour of the casino site. At press time, Gate 777 just turned two which shows they are not a one-day affair and managed to grow into a liked and trusted gaming hangout.
Registration is quickly completed on the standard White Hat Gaming form with three steps while an authentication message will be sent to your registered email or mobile that will activate your account. As always we recommend to have your account verification completed at your earliest convenience by uploading your KYC documents as it will avoid any delays with potential withdrawals. Starting 7th May 2019, UK players have to go through the KYC process before they are allowed to deposit and play.
Gate 777 prepared a welcome package that could be called an upgrade as it comprises deposit bonuses and extra/bonus spins. Please note, that the packages are tailored to your country of residence and could be either of the bonus offers or a combination of both. Wagering requirements will apply to all bonus offers with bet limits, game weighting and restriction in place according to the Gate 777 bonus terms and conditions. The casino keeps bonus and cash balances separate, allowing you to withdraw any winnings and your deposit as long as you have not touched the bonus money.
Whilst you can try all games in demo play, you will need to make a deposit first should you wish to play for real money. A visit to the banking lobby will show you the available payment methods in your country of residence. These include e-wallets such as Paypal, Skrill or Neteller, credit/debit cards, pay-by-phone options and prepaid cards. Plus, Gate 777 is offering a whole array of localized instant banking options such as Interac Online, Klarna (Sofort) and Trustly.
Gate 777 features a slightly smaller choice of games than other White Hat Gaming brands but they do list most must-have providers as well as some interesting newcomers or the latest shooting stars. Plus, there is a decent range of live tables available, powered by Evolution Gaming and Netent Live.
At Gate 777, all players are enrolled into the standard White Hat Gaming loyalty program where they collect points for wagering on the games. Both cash and bonus play earns points. They can be exchanged for bonus casino chips once the balance exceeds 1,000 points. Up to 10,000 points can be converted per day. The bonus chips are subject to the standard wagering requirement.
Loyal players and high rollers will be invited to join the VIP Lounge, a program with Bronze, Silver and Gold levels. Each comes with increasing benefits such as higher bonus offers, birthday bonuses and gifts, personal VIP host, cashback deals and more.
While the terms do not clearly state withdrawal time frames, the reports we received from fellow players, GMBLRS members and from other forums indicate that payouts are kept pending for 48 hours before they are processed, which looks like it is standard at White Hat Gaming brands. It surely does not qualify Gate 777 to feature in the fast-paying category but they do pay reliably after the pending period has elapsed. However, we cannot condone the fact that they do not offer the opportunity to lock withdrawals.
Customer support is on standby 24/7 to answer your queries via email and live chat. The site is available in multiple languages including English, Finnish, German, Norwegian and Swedish.
As with all White Hat Gaming brands, I simply can’t give a five-star rating. While a good part of the casino offering would deserve the highest rating, the extended payment time frames are not something we like or prefer. They are though a reliable gaming hangout with some of the best licenses and suitable for everyone who can wait a little longer for his/her winnings.
