Route 777 Slots REVIEW
Route 777 is a brand new online slot released by the Swedish game development company Elk Studios at the beginning of November 2017. This 3-reel and 17 payline slot takes you on a motorcycle ride on the route 666 inspired highway Route 777 across the American desert. The classic-styled video slot is loaded with free spins and re-spins, and a very rewarding fortune wheel with retro styled sound effects.

As mentioned above, it is a retro styled slot and includes such classic fruit machine symbols as cherries, lemons, bars, red sevens, blue sevens, silver sevens, and a triple, multicoloured seven symbol, as well as barbary figs and skulls.
