In my opinion the most frequent digit will be 0 as 77777! has at least a queue composed of

7777+777+77+7 coming from multiples of 10

 and as all factorials are even numbers,
 other 7777 zeros coming from other multiples of 5.

This form a queue of at least 16415 zeros that is not impressive if compared to a more than 300000 digits of each factorial from 77777 ahead, but enough I think in an enviroment full of 7 that is an excellent distributor of different digits.
