Now owned by Scientific Games, Barcrest has been involved in the gambling industry for over fifty years. The Manchester-based company is renowned for providing quality slots both to land-based venues such as pubs and arcades and online casinos and at online bingo rooms for British players. Barcrest has had many rivals over the years. It was first bought out in 2008 by IGT before being snapped up by Scientific Games in 2011. Throughout its existence, Barcrest maintained a fierce rivalry with BallyTech. Both are now owned by SG, ending the feud. Despite changing hands several times, Barcrest has always been given the creative freedom to develop its games in the same way it has historically done. Rainbow Riches is their most significant slot series, with half a dozen variants playable. Barcrest’s games are notable for being realistic, mimicking land-based slots and yet providing the sorts of features and mobile computability you would expect from modern games.
