BRUSSELS, Oct. 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Online sportsbook and casino operator 777.be announced today that its contract with Belgian-born Hollywood actor Jean-Claude Van Damme has been extended by two years to 2022. The announcement follows a hugely successful collaboration that started in 2019. The 777.be ads starring Van Damme tallied up 13 million views on YouTube alone.
A new campaign with Van Damme is scheduled for release later this week on Belgian TV, YouTube and other digital channels. It stars Van Damme as a "benevolent hero" who is on a mission to teach customers of Bet777.be a lesson about knowing their limits when betting. Two clips were recorded in September, the first of which will be premiered on the channels of RTL and TF1 in Wallonia, and VTM in Flanders. In the clips, Van Damme displays his usual charm, charisma and some of his famous moves for the greater good of stressing the importance of responsible gaming.
Jean-Christophe Choffray, Head of Gaming at 777.be, said about the campaign: "We are delighted to have Jean-Claude Van Damme on board to help us educate our players about responsible game play. Moderation is essential, and with this campaign Van Damme very effectively combines his talents and humour to get this very important message across to our players."
