The OCR review
Big Win 777 is a 5-reel, 15 payline online and mobile slots game that offers pretty much your standard slots fare – well-known symbols, average music and the usual bonuses.
It can be considered an upgraded classic slots game in that it offers everything your online 5-reel slot needs plus adds a little extra with the bonus bet or claim game and the chance to hit free spins or multipliers with a lucky reel game.
It is a well-designed game as should be expected from a developer like Play’n Go, and the game action is smooth and engaging. You can choose betting options from 0. To 90.00 (for the high rollers) and spinning the reels is down to a spin button or a settable auto function. Space bar triggers a boost spin for as long as you hold it down.
The layout is simple and works well.
The symbols are simple: single, double and triple BARs, standard 7s, gold 7s, Wild gems and a colourful Chance wheel symbol scatters that trigger the bonus game.
It has quite a premium feel thanks to its gold and purple highlights and is visually quite impressive.
The graphics are crisp and well designed and easy to see.
Sound is ‘meh’. An annoying background tune as is standard with a lot of slots games. There do come moments when you hit the Chance scatters and a voice shouts out “CHANCE!” that breaks from the otherwise average sound effects.
Bonuses and extras
Big Win 777 features both wilds and scatters. The Wilds substitute for any other symbol (except the scatters) and can add up to rich winning.
The scatters are small Chance wheels that look like your typical Spin ‘n Win wheels. Get three of these anywhere on the screen and you trigger a bonus game where you spin the wheel and stand a chance to win multipliers or free spins.
There is also a bet or collect feature after every win where you get to play a mini game of choosing black or red cards or choosing a suite to boost your win if you are lucky. If you choose wrong you lose your bet though so think carefully before wagering your win on the turn of a card.
Pros and cons
Classic slots play
Bonus game and mini game

A bit of a been there seen that
Triggering the scatters is few and far between
The OCR verdict
Big Win 777 from Play’n Go is not a bad game. It does everything right – perhaps more than right – but it doesn’t really offer anything new to the slots world. Maybe we’re just spoilt when it comes to new and exciting and innovative games?
For lovers of classic slots games this a definite hit. For those who prefer a little more immersion and a bit more innovation it’s a miss. This is why we rate it as a hit(-ish). There are better games
This is a very well designed and executed game for what it is – a classic slots style game with upgraded and modernised features.
