Neil Ottesen, who goes by the username “Neily 777” on social media, follows in the footsteps of other successful slots influencers by posting exciting gameplay videos on a regular basis. While he prefers to record big wins and slots bonuses, he’s not afraid to upload his bad days either. 

He’s also sharing exclusive casino strategies with his viewers, which not many influencers take the time to do. Neil has been a YouTube netizen since June of 2010, but his channel blew up in 2018. Through tireless work and consistently awesome uploads, he’s earned 29+ million views.

Over the past decade or so, Neil’s been hard at work building a loyal community of fans. 61.4k+ YouTube subscribers and 11k+ Facebook followers have their eyes glued to his latest uploads.

Neil’s channel brings the excitement of playing high-limit jackpot slots to your computer screen.

Origin Story

Neil Ottesen hasn’t centered his entire life around hitting big wins at California’s most popular casinos. A cursory LinkedIn search reveals that he’s the Head of Staffing and Training at a law firm in the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area, and YouTube has been nothing more than a hobby

Still, he’s been recording and uploading slots gameplay videos to his YouTube channel since March 2011. His first-ever video was filmed at San Manuel Casino, and it showed the results of his max bet bonus on the Silver Sword slot machine. Over the years, it racked up 24.7k+ views. 

Unfortunately, his gameplay videos wouldn’t break the 1,000-view mark for another three years. His channel also experienced a lull from 2014 to 2016 until he started achieving 10k – 20k views per upload! Finally, his informational video about slot strategy made it big with 2.2 million views. 

His content has averaged 7.5k to 10k views per video since 2018, but occasional uploads have shattered the 100,000-view mark. Six years later, he’s riding the wave of mainstream popularity. As we progress through 2024, we anticipate that he’ll earn another 10k+ YouTube subscribers.
