The Talmud, and codified by Maimonides, it is not sufficient for a non-Jew to just keep the seven laws in order to "have a portion in the world to come".
A translation of Maimonides may be found [[Maimonides' Law of Noahides#Laws of Kings and their Wars' Chapter 8|here]]. Please remember when reading other laws of Maimonides that he is only one authority, and other great Rabbis have given their opinions. Not all of Maimonides opinions have been accepted as halacha.
To become an observant Noahide is to be assured of a 'portion in the world to come', by entering into a covenant with G-d, of which the Jewish people are also a part. The requirement is:
# To recognize the covenant that already has been made
# To become part of one of 'seventy' legal systems
# And to accept the Rabbinic interpretation of scripture
This may sound very similar to the teaching of other religions, particularly within the Abrahamic tradition, and it should be so, because Judaism teaches that the Noahide covenant is the foundation of any proper society and religion.
