The company is known as one of the oldest names in the industry. Its history dates back to 1968, when the first slot machine with their logo appeared in well-known British pubs. It was a simple mechanical game with fruit icons depicted on the reels. Pub visitors were very excited about entertainment, which was not only a great way to spend time, but also provided big wins. Within a couple of years, it became the most recognized reeled machine brand in the U.K.
The 70s, 80s and 90s can be called the ‘golden age’ of the developer’s slots, as they were extremely popular and highly sought after. However, when gambling, along with many other kinds of entertainment, migrated to the virtual digital world, these machines were no exception. In 1998, the studio became part of the giant IGT and was soon after involved in online content development.
By 2006, the company had released numerous online games, which were well received by customers. In 2006, they released the Rainbow Riches, a creation that has become a major success and is still popular.
Five years later, the trademark was sold to Scientific Games. In 2011, they merged it with the Global Draw organization in order to create new content. Since then, everything developed together with Global Draw is published under the SG Gaming trademark. However, the Barcrest name, with its long-standing gambling history, is still viable and attracts the attention of old-school players.
