Casino770 has been in business for ten years, and in that time it has amassed a solid fan base. The reasons for the site's success are many – game quality and selection is good, welcome bonus is decent, etc. – but in downloading the software and playing a while, we found the below four amenities to be the things that really set Casino 770 apart:
- 98.3% average game payout rate
- complete gaming experience – casino, poker, sports, bingo, arcade – in one
- “Fair Player” award winner for serious and fair conduct
- promotions and exclusive member benefits frequently updated on the site's blog
Another notable fact is that Casino 770 has been online for ten years, a fair amount of time compared to its fellow free online casinos. In light of recent events (i.e. Full Tilt Poker shut down), ten scandal-free years in business is significant. It suggests reliability and trustworthiness.
To that end, Casino 770 is regularly audited for fairness by iTech labs, which verifies that its card / number sequences are unpredictable, non-repeatable and uniformly distributed. Its Random Number Generators (RNG) are tested according to Alderney Gambling Control Commission, UK Gambling Commission (AGCC), Isle of Man and Malta requirements. The latter is the commission that revoked Full Tilt's license (again, more points for 770 because if the AGCC, which has a history of stringent adherence to the principles of fairnesss, is involved in its regulations, you know you are in good hands).

GAMES AT CASINO 770: Online Casino Review
For us, five factors come into play when we talk about games. These are selection, software, setup, average payout and installation options. Casino 770 gets top marks for all five factors.
More than 260 games are available at Casino 770 and new, innovative games are introduced regularly. The site boasts all the most popular gambling games, from multiplayer and live dealer blackjack to several variations on roulette, video poker and slots, as well as sister sites devoted to poker, bingo, sports betting and arcade games.
Casino 770 is powered by ISB software, not one of the most common gambling software providers, but still reliable, secure and capable. One of the benefits to not being supported by, say, Playtech or Microgaming – two of the gambling world's top software providers – is that the games are not the exact same games offered by everyone else. Their themes and design are unique and the sound effects are especially cool: background “casino noise” or parlor music and, depending on the game you're playing, crisp, life-like spins and shuffles.
Click on any of the Games links from the home page, and you are directed to one of two pages: either a user-friendly table listing instant play options in fun play or real money mode (plus easy navigation buttons at the bottom of the page that offer help, chat, promotions, etc. in a single click), or a single page showing every conceivable game option in flash and download format. You can preview all games before committing to the site to see if their functionality and playability suit your needs.
Average game payout for Casino 770 games is exceptional. Industry average hovers around 97%, but 770 gives you 98.1%. If you think 1.1% doesn't make a difference, think again. Over time, it makes a substantial difference.
We said this above, but it's worth saying again. Casino 770 is available in flash, download, fun play and real money modes. This is important for a lot of reasons:
1) if you want to play in across multiple computers – flash doesn't limit you to having the casino software suite downloaded to your desktop
2) if you want to “test” the games or practice before depositing and/or betting – fun mode allows you to play risk-free before signing up to the site.

We had no difficulty depositing, receiving bonuses and withdrawing funds after playing. All transactions were almost immediate.

As mentioned above, Casino 770 has also won awards for its commitment to transparency and trustworthiness. The most recent of these was its “Fair Player” win for serious and fair conduct.
