Barcrest develop gaming terminals and online slots for the casino industry. Rainbow Riches is by far their biggest hit, but their slot games collectively have been played millions of times in pubs and clubs around the UK. In recent years, the developer have transitioned most of their games to an online and mobile format. Barcrest slots have a rich history and were practically everywhere during the 1970s.
History of Barcrest Slots
Established in 1968, the Rainbow Riches developer started out as a manufacturer of gaming terminals for entertainment establishments. During the 1970s and 1980s, their machines dominated the UK leisure scene. Eventually, they started to expand into other European markets – and their continued success attracted the attentions of IGT, who bought the firm in 1998. Fast forward to 2011 and SG Interactive made a historic deal to acquire Barcrest from IGT and in doing so, the entire Barcrest slots games library along with it.
Best Barcrest Slots
One of the hallmarks of a Barcrest slot games is a generous feature set; no matter which game you choose, there’s always more than just a free spins bonus. The slots also tend to be high variance in nature, partially why the developer has no progressive jackpot games in their library. However, the developer certainly likes to innovate with mechanics, especially with a certain leprechaun character…
Rainbow Riches Slot
Put simply, the king of luck themed slots and arguably one of the best Barcrest slots. The original Rainbow Riches wowed players with incredible bonus features (like the Road to Riches bonus) and the potential for a £200,000 max win. Due to the success of the original, the game has become a franchise in itself, spawning all sorts of sequels and spinoffs like Rainbow Riches Pick and Mix and Rainbow Riches Reels of Gold.
Thai Flower Slot
This Barcrest slot games title is not far behind the flushed leprechaun in terms of popularity. Gameplay wise, the games are very different – Rainbow Riches has a number of special features and bonus rounds, while Thai Flower is content with the main free spins bonus. However, that bonus round is a potential payout paradise. Activate free spins and you will be able to choose three random symbols; the reels during free spins will only contain these three random symbols. If you’re lucky enough to land the high value symbols, then you could be on your way to a £250,000 max win.
Another popular Barcrest slots series is their range of Monopoly games. Yes, there’s no over the table family arguments here about the ownership of Mayfair, just some classic slots action. This is probably one of the best looking games from the developer with no expense spared in the graphics and animation department. Like the Rainbow Riches series, the Monopoly games tend to be more experimental than traditional fruit machines. An example of this would be the Big Bet feature in Monopoly Big Event slot – which actually allows you to trigger the bonus feature more often.
