Barcrest was formed in 1968 and focused on terminals in the arcade and bingo sector in the UK primarily – with lots of video slots in their portfolio, they expanded extensively throughout Europe before the online gaming industry took off. They also brought their most famous game, Rainbow Riches, to the masses in 2006 which has gone from strength to strength and has spawned lots of sequels and versions. Rainbow Riches is probably the most well-known game in the UK which still can be found in bingo halls, arcades, pubs and bookmakers all over the UK.
Due to Barcrest’s success, they were purchased in 2011 by Scientific Games Corporation – they also run/own WMS (Williams Interactive) and Bally Technologies. This has allowed Barcrest to release many more video slots using technologies found in WMS/Bally games including Mighty Black Knight, Reel ‘Em In Lobster Potty and Monopoly On The Money.
You can also find all the classics such as Cashino, Money Mad Martians Cosmic Cash, Merry Money, Monty’s Millions and Thai Flower. The good thing about Barcrest is that you can find their video slots at most online casinos nowadays due to the strength of Scientific Games.
