The Seven Casino Sister Sites
Let’s have a look at the three Seven Casino sister sites that we have on the slate for today: Winstler Casino, Gxmble Casino and Jokersino.
Sites Like Seven Casino
You know that the Sister Casinos staff is always looking for new, exciting sister sites for you to explore. In mid-2023, we linked a family of four English language real money online casinos (and one Swedish casino that we’ll talk about later on) to the same parent company.
After our due diligence, we confirmed three other sites are sister casinos to Seven Casino! So, we dove in and started our investigation. What follows is a list of the Seven Casino sister sites and an honest Seven Casino review that may surprise you. We’ll also discuss their corporate ownership, licensing status, and general reputation.
Reviews of Seven Casino Sister Sites
There’s also a Swedish sister site called Casineia that GAEM also owns, but we’re focusing on English-language sites in this review. These three Seven Casino sister sites have the same ownership and a similar set of games to the original. But can they improve the equation’s transparency, support, and licensing?
Let’s briefly look at the Seven Casino sister sites to see if they’re in better shape in their first year of operation.
Winstler Casino – Seven Casino Sister Sites
Once again, we can’t verify Winstler Casino’s accurate Trustpilot rating since they’ve had many false 5-star reviews taken down for being a paid effort and likely have several more reviews coming down, given the patterns we’re seeing.
So, we can only go with what we see. And this is a Seven Casino clone casino.
Winstler Casino Reputation
Despite specific reviews claiming that Winstler is okay and that the ‘Curacao Gaming Authority makes sure things are safe at Winstler,’ you and I both know that’s complete B.S. First, Winstler isn’t displaying any Curacao certificate, proof of licensing, or RTP certification. And second, everyone in the industry knows that a 5536/JAZ license is an utter joke (if they do have one). So, let’s not pretend this site is a land of unicorns and rainbows.
The Winstler casino site has the same (or at least primarily similar) massive exclusion list of hundreds of slot machines that can’t be used to clear bonuses, the same punishments for active bonus restrictions with no automation to warn about or prevent them, and essentially the same T&Cs. It even has the same misspellings and mistranslations.
A direct comparison of the T&Cs found only a few words different between the two and a few changed positions of phrases. They are copied, pasted, and modified for the casino name and other details.
Amusingly, the ‘About Us’ page is an exact copy on both sites, minus the casino name. That leads to a lot of hilarious statements, including this gem:
‘Winstler is a well-known, long-established brand that can be trusted. This is confirmed by the consistently high attendance of Winstler and many positive assessments of our activities.‘
Yes, they both say ‘that’ twice. They’ve copied the typo. And yes, they’re claiming that this site, which is less than a year old, is long-established. And so is Seven Casino.
Winstler Casino Bonuses
What’s different between the two sites? Well, the bonus offers on Winstler are all 45x rollover, making them useless given that most, if not all, of the 96%+ RTP machines, cannot be used to clear them. You must be fortunate to even get away with your initial deposit.
In short, Winstler Casino is one of a series of Seven Casino clone casinos and has inherited all of the same issues mentioned above. That includes multiple reports of confiscated funds due to zero automation that warns or stops people from playing higher RTP machines to clear their bonus.
So again, we suggest you exercise extreme caution before depositing real money at Winstler Casino.
Gxmble Casino – Seven Casino Sister Sites
Well, you may have guessed the plot of this particular tale by now, but we’re obligated to say that Gxmble Casino was found to have doctored reviews on Trustpilot. So, star ratings may disappear without warning as more evidence emerges.
Yes, their ‘About Us’ section is a clone of Seven Casino Casino’s, with the name replaced. And yes, they claim to be a ‘long-established brand that can be trusted,’ typo.
Disappointingly, section 4.5.3 of their T&Cs contain the same (or very close to the same) list of high RTP machines that you aren’t allowed to use to clear bonuses.
It may seem ridiculous that GAEM put out multiple casinos with content so close to one another that it can be measured in single percentage points. But there’s a method to their madness.
We’ll let you in on a little industry secret. What GAEM is doing is a technique called A/B Testing. They make a series of casinos, in this case, the Seven Casino sister sites, and put them all in the field. Then they make tiny changes to each one: Subtle changes in advertising, bonus structure, regional coverage, payment methods available, and branding. The casino that performs the best becomes the template for the rest.
Sadly, one thing that remains the same between the sites is their draconian bonus policy enforcement without any automatic safeguards in place:
‘We are sending you this email regarding your withdrawal request. Sadly your withdrawal has been rejected, and your winnings have been confiscated. We are sorry for this.’
That’s the message you can expect to receive if you don’t carefully scan the list of 290 machines that you aren’t allowed to clear your bonus on. Fail even once, and you lose everything. If you’re lucky, they’ll refund your deposit.
And that’s why we suggest you exercise extreme caution before depositing real money at Gxmble Casino. They don’t have any automation to guide you away from the hundreds of restricted machines while you clear your bonus. It’s almost like they want you to fail.
Jokersino – Seven Casino Sister Sites
Jokersino casino is too new to have many reviews or to receive a warning about fake checks and get them removed. But there are hints that this casino is playing the same dirty tricks as the other Seven Casino sister sites. We’ll get into that shortly.
First, let’s cover the obvious questions: Yes, they have the same ‘About Us’ section, complete with the telltale typo. And they have the mind-bending section 4.5.3 of their T&Cs that bans around 290 higher RTP slot machines from bonus clearance.
They claim 5x rollover bonus clearance for new players and 20x rollover requirements on weekly bonuses. The question is, can you trust them not to screw you over?
Because once again, we have reported on Trustpilot of support canceling the cashouts of winning players due to their draconian slot restrictions and no automation to help or warn players that they’re playing the wrong machines. Out of 6 reviews, two were about bonus confiscations.
You would think they’d understand what a terrible policy this is and invest in the fundamental automation required to separate valid clearance spins from invalid ones. But they haven’t.
As an extra trick, you’ll see a ‘C’ in front of all the dollar signs in the T&Cs and bonus offers. That, according to support, means Canadian dollars. It would help if you double-checked yourself before depositing to make sure. This is yet another way to screw with you. If you bet 2 USD while clearing your bonus, you violated their rules and will get your funds seized:
‘Betting more than C$2 at once while having an active bonus can be considered as misuse of bonus offers and can lead to the exaction of all wins received in such a way.‘
So, for the final time, we must warn you to exercise extreme caution before depositing real money at Jokersino. Because if you don’t, the joke will be on you.
Well, that was a depressing debut for what we had hoped to be some exciting new casinos for 2023. It saddens us greatly that in this day and age, real money online casinos have yet to learn that the most reliable and longest-lasting sites are the ones that give players a fun, well-regulated experience. That’s where the real money comes from in the long term.
Who Owns The Seven Casino Sister Sites?
GAEM Limited (yes, that’s the correct spelling) owns and operates the Seven Casino sister sites. They’re a corporation based out of Curacao, with business registration number 163083. Here’s a copy of their business registration from the Curacao Chamber of Commerce:
The Director of GAEM is PYGG B.V. in Curacao, presumably associated with PYGG Capital Partners out of the Netherlands. They’re a wealth management firm, which means anyone could be giving them their instructions, and because of confidentiality, we’ll never really know who’s in charge. This is a typical shell company setup.
It’s interesting to see that Frank Henri Christiaan Lammers, the stated Statutory Director of PYGG B.V.’s operations, is a notable person mentioned in the Panama Papers. He also runs Amergeris Wealth Management (Barbados) LTD.
Is Seven Casino Safe and Legit?
The Seven Casino sister sites are incredibly new by real money online casino standards. It’s too early to say (as of mid-2023) if they’re safe or legit, but as you’ll see later in the review, their T&Cs and bonus rules should be considered highly unfair. So until they establish a defined track record, keep your eyes and ears open. Here’s what we do know:
The live chat at Seven Casino claimed that the site had a Curacao Master Gaming License from Curacao Interactive Licensing N.V. This is also called a (5536/JAZ) license. But none of our sources could verify that. They had no license information posted on the site, a requirement for a Curacao MGL. The 5536/JAZ has no other online validation tool. So if they have a license, it is not displayed or referenced on the GAEM sister sites.
Without any displayed Seven Casino license, assume there will be no regulatory help should you and the site disagree. At the time of writing, support still needs to clarify the questions we’ve asked about their license status.
Now you might think: If they need to link their license information, how do we know these casinos are sister sites? They all share the same anti-money laundering notice from GAEM Limited. If you click on the AML notice at the very bottom of each site, they’re pretty much identical, credited to the parent company’s corporate address at Archiepiskopou Makariou III, 84, Office 1, 6017, Larnaca,
That made picking out these particular sister sites easy, even with no standard Seven Casino license.
We’ll discuss the legitimacy of Seven Casino’s TrustPilot reviews in the next section.
An Honest Seven Casino Review
You can be sure that other Seven Casino reviews generally won’t start with a warning quite like this one:
We usually like to start or end our reviews with a snapshot of a real money online casino’s public reputation. But that will be difficult because Trustpilot has already removed several fake Seven Casino reviews from their site. And given the trend that we just saw (10 reviews within 24 hours between June 30th and June 31st of 2023, all of them five stars, and all of them from new accounts), it’s highly likely that more fake reviews will be removed soon.
Seven Casino Reputation
You can’t trust their current 3.4 out of 5 score. Usually, such a score puts them above most other Curacao sites. But in this case, it just taints the rest of their reviews, legit or not. We’ll use our experience and the site’s details to see whether or not we can deem it trustworthy.
One of the first red flags on Seven Casino is that you need an account to browse their game selection. This is a step worse than the sites that won’t let you view game info or RTP without being logged in. To hide what games are available without giving up your personal information is a big deal.
Once you log in from a valid country, you can choose from several broad categories of games, including casino, live casino, sports betting, and raffles. Notably, this means that bingo and slingo are nowhere to be found. This is a conscious decision of many new casinos since the customers who enjoy those games are often on predetermined budgets that tend to be on the low side. In other words, you don’t catch whales with bingo.
Games and Software Providers
Their casino game selection is what you’d typically find at a casino that has gone broad with their providers: Betsoft, Relax Gaming, NetEnt, GameArt, Microgaming, and many others. And some of the RTPs on offer are nice.
For example, 1429 Uncharted Seas by Thunderkick is a legendary slot. It’s a low-volatility, 98.6% RTP machine offering 25 paylines over five reels. It features a max win of 670x your original wager and some minigame opportunities.
If you prefer many more ways to win, White Rabbit Megaways from Big Time Gaming might be more up your alley. This 97.24% RTP slot features 16,807 paylines over five reels in the regular game mode and 248,832 paylines in the feature mode! With a max win of 17,420x your original wager on this medium slot, BTG delivered an action-packed gaming experience this time.
But there’s a problem with these RTPs, at least as far as GAEM is concerned. More on that unfortunate note when we get to the Seven Casino bonuses section.
The live casino floor is populated with the typical offerings from Evolution Gaming. It’s their standard mix of blackjack, baccarat, roulette, and poker games. The usual warning for Evolution Gaming’s offerings applies here: Side bets are generally garbage, and there are some absolute bottom-barrel RTPs in the odd game variants. Don’t intentionally inflict worse odds on yourself by playing American roulette over European roulette, for example, unless you like an extra green square that you can automatically lose most of your bets on. And check the RTP of the stranger-sounding games since they’re often just worse versions of the classics.
Seven Casino’s sportsbook is functional but nothing special. I’ve heard some people raving about it, but I do not know why. It has the standard options that an out-of-the-box sportsbook would have:
- Football (Champions League, Premier League, etc.).
- The U.S. national sports (NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB, etc.).
- The other popular international choices.
It’s like those other reviewers have never seen an online sportsbook before… or perhaps they’re just being paid very well for their enthusiasm. Nevertheless, it’s okay but not outstanding.
Have you ever heard the phrase ‘you need to read the fine print‘? That applies to the next section specifically. So perk up those ears.
Seven Casino Bonuses
Let’s talk about the Seven Casino bonuses that are available. Or open?
There’s a clause buried in the terms and conditions of Seven Casino that are going to shatter any hope of taking these bonuses seriously. This clause goes on for seven hundred and thirty words. It restricts using over 290 of the highest RTP slots on the site for clearing bonuses.
This is the first time we have seen a list of restricted bonus clearance machines this long. Most, if not all, of devices over a 96% RTP are on this list. If this changes in the future (it was the case in mid-July 2023), we’ve saved a hilarious snapshot for you to check out.
There may be limits. Is it random? Are we supposed to guess at those limits? They already stated that no-deposit bonuses are capped at: ‘€100 or twice the bonus amount‘. So why have this weird, ambiguous language elsewhere in the T&Cs?
Also note that the maximum clearance amount that applies to your rollover is 2 Euros per bet: ‘Betting more than 2 EUR at once while having an active bonus can be considered as misuse of bonus offers and can lead to the exaction of all wins received in such a way.‘
Do you understand all of the bonus restrictions yet? That makes one of us.
If you do, we can move on to what’s being offered. The Seven Casino weekly bonuses are all 45x rollover for clearance. You may as well ignore these. They will burden your account if you need to withdraw (you can’t withdraw with a pending bonus on the books).
Since they’ve wiped out 290+ of the best RTP machines, assume you will lose, on average, at least 4% of your bonus bankroll every rollover. That means the entire bonus will be gone within 25x rollovers for most players. The remaining requirements are just there to wipe out your bankroll on evil RTP machines.
As to the deposit bonuses, they don’t let you view the specific terms and conditions before you make a deposit! They claim it’s a simple 10x rollover, but there’s no way to know that unless you agree to make a minimum deposit of €50 to qualify.
If that’s true, and there are no additional crazy requirements they tack on afterward, that would be great. The average player would walk away with around half their bonus after clearance, even on 95% RTP machines.
Seven Casino’s T&Cs are so complex it’s hard not to run afoul of them (note the list of 290 games you need to avoid, for starters). And they do not use automation to enforce them – instead intentionally allow users to make mistakes so that they can freeze the account.
It would be trivial not to count bets over 2 EUR towards a bonus clearance. It would be trivial not to count play on those 290+ machines as qualifying toward bonus clearance. Instead, they ‘count’ them and then allegedly ban winning players.
Seven Casino Payment Methods
If you’re comfortable with this (and why you would be is beyond me, but let’s play along), let’s discuss Seven Casino payment methods. They accept major credit and debit cards (Visa, Mastercard, etc.), cryptocurrency (BitCoin, Tether. etc.), bank transfers, and country-specific deposit methods (Skrill, AstroPay, Neteller, etc.). Note that these methods can fluctuate from week to week, and some techniques posted a few weeks ago are unavailable now (mid-July 2023), so you’ll need to check the details for your specific country.
We have one final note on the ‘fairness’ side. This statement is made at the bottom of each of the site’s pages (their spelling, not ours):
‘All of our slot machines are RTP certified.‘
By whom? Where’s the certification? Where’s the RTP report? A Google site search shows no such links or accurate details available. Why isn’t all of this information present right on the home page?
Verdict of our honest Seven Casino review: Given the bizarre fake reviews on Trustpilot, the lack of license validity and RTP validation details, the reports of account closures when people win money, the overly complex restrictions applied to bonus clearance, and the utter lack of transparency without making a real money deposit, we suggest you exercise extreme caution before depositing real money at Seven Casino.
They’re so new these issues may result from paranoid and overly restrictive policies made up in a boardroom somewhere. They may hammer out their policy and support problems shortly. But right now, in mid-July of 2023, the site could be a lot better. We will move Seven Casino to our banned list if they continue these policies. But they still have time to correct their policies and behavior. Time will tell.
Two Alternative Sites Like Seven Casino
We don’t want to leave you on that terrible note. So instead, let’s look at some casino sites like Seven Casino!
Let’s start with Sportsbetting AG. Sportsbetting AG has a great TrustPilot score for an .ag site. 3.4 out of 5 (as of mid-July 2023) is better than many well-trusted UK-licensed sites. Their site is registered and licensed with the FSRC, and they’ve been a reliable operator since 2011.
Sportsbetting AG lets you look up any RTP on any machine, even if you aren’t logged in. They offer slots, a great sportsbook, blackjack, poker tournaments, live table games, and more. They even run special free contests to celebrate major sporting events, creating a prize pool for loyal customers!
Their 50% Sports Betting Deposit bonus only has a 10x rollover requirement. Their 100% Matching Crypto First Time Deposit offer only requires a 14x rollover. Sadly, their casino-based bonuses all have a 40x rollover, but at least they need a list of hundreds of machines you aren’t allowed to use.
Deposit options include, in alphabetical order: Avalanche, Binance, Bitcoin, Cardano, Credit and Debit Cards, Dogecoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Money Order, Person To Person, Polygon, Ripple, Shiba Inu, Solana, Stellar, Tether, Tron, USD Coin, and Wire Transfer. Good.
Their traceable licensing, sportsbook bonuses, great Trustpilot reviews, extensive game selection, live help, and track record make Sportsbetting AG an excellent casino site like Seven Casino.
Another alternative to Seven Casino is Jackbit. Jackbit casino is one of the most beloved offshore sites in the world, with an incredible Trustpilot score and many rabid fans. Jackbit has a 1668/JAZ license issued by Curacao eGaming, registration number: 154186.
The oddest thing about Jackbit is that they don’t offer a significant welcome bonus. Instead, they distributed massive monthly prize pools to players via contests, lotteries, and other offers. It’s quite something.
They have over 6,000 slots and 200 live casino games from the most popular providers. Their modern sportsbook covers the usual offline and top competitions from the E-sports world. Their 3+1 Freebet system awards you a free bet based on the average of your past three, with a $100 maximum and $10 minimum.
Deposit methods include Visa, Mastercard, debit, and crypto.
As we’ve said before, Jackbit is just built differently. By deemphasizing bonuses and putting their money in community prize pools, there’s always something exciting to look forward to. Add their excellent reputation, solid support team, and fantastic game selection, and they might be one of the best sites like Seven Casino on the market today.
A Final Word
The next few months will decide if the relatively young Seven Casino sister sites can get their acts together or continue to spiral into distrust. We need to see a concerted effort to automate their bonus clearance process so that players are warned or barred from playing games that aren’t on the clearance list. We also want to see the clearance count for the first 2 EUR of qualifying bets, with the remainder not applying to their rollover total or warning the player that higher bets don’t count towards clearing their rollover requirements. This is how almost every other casino in the world handles this situation.
This would go a long way toward legitimizing the Seven Casino sister sites. Then they need to post a valid license on each site, clarify who is verifying their RTP and post the verification results.
Or they can continue to backslide into oblivion. They will be noticed if they plan to become one of those shady operators we all hate.
