Even though it emerged as a company that manufactures land gaming solutions, arcade games, and bingo, Barcrest (an SG Gaming company) has definitely found the energy and the know-how to adapt to the new trend – online gambling. And not just that, this UK-based company, which was recently acquired by Scientific Games, has pushed its product to the mobile market as well, so players now have a chance to enjoy their all-time favorites, such as Rainbow Riches and Monty’s Millions not only online, but on their mobile and tablet devices as well.
Barcrest has enjoyed enviable success since its inception in 1968, but the general impression is that it has reached its true bloom right now, in the new technology, innovative design, games for regulated online gambling markets. The truth is that it’s a company whose product is widely appreciated, and for a number of reasons, which will be discussed further on.
Apart from a wide range of land-based machines and products, Barcrest is becoming increasingly known for its online and mobile gambling solutions, as well as the interactive TV product. The company has successfully transferred some of the best known terrestrial titles to the new, virtual environment, keeping not only the same fantastic quality in graphics, but even enhancing them with some new features, such as grand jackpots and availability in multiple languages. Thanks to the latter feature, operators who opt for Barcrest games will be able to expand or target specific markets, and thereby see greater revenue stream for their business.
At the moment, Barcrest’s online games suite is of modest size – it’s noticeable that the company is new in this side of the business, but the fact is that despite its small range, the Barcrest offering is of supreme quality, which is why some of the widely respected online casinos have opted for its games (such as Kerching Casino and the famous Irish Paddy Power Casino).
And thanks to the flexibility of its product, Barcrest games can be easily integrated into third-party systems, a quality which renders them acceptable for a wider range of operators.
To make things better for the company, the mid-2011 acquisition of Barcrest by Scientific Games Corporation saw the software developer integrated into Scientific Games’ wholly owned UK subsidiaries, The Global Draw and Games Media. These two are the suppliers, operators and servicers of over 29,000 gaming terminals throughout the world, and this could have been a major step forward for Barcrest which before the acquisition had an installed base of over 5,000 terminals.
Security & Support
One thing’s for sure – as a software provider and machines developer based and registered in the UK, Barcrest had to meet stringent market requirements and standards in order to be able to spread its business and offer its services to such a high number of venues. Hence – players’ security is one of the priorities. On the other hand, special attention is dedicated to responsible gaming, and Barcrest constantly provides links to Gamble Aware, for people in need of expert help.
Speaking of help, constant support is available around the clock to all Barcrest users, who can benefit from their professional and prompt staff’s knowledge and instant availability for all questions.
