SG Gaming formerly known as Barcrest is a subsidiary of Scientific Games. Over its almost 60 years of history, Barcrest has gone through a lot of changes. Not every casino game producer is successful enough to manage on their own.
In 1998 Barcest was acquired by IGT (WagerWorks) and was later sold to Scientific Games in 2011. Most of their games saw a lot of attention in land based casinos. With the advent of technology and the exponential expansion of the internet, Barcrest had to make some changes. IGT and at the moment Scientific Games act like a basis solely for this purpose. In practice, SG Gaming is a result from the merging of Barcrest and The Global Draw. This is not your average casino software provider. The game offer revolves around slots, arcade and bingo. The headquarters is located in London, but they also have a regional office in Manchester. In total, SG Gaming employs 550 people across the UK. SG Gaming was officially established in 2012.
Products & Platform
SG’s games are available both in online casinos and bricks and mortar ones. All of their games have a unique design and one of a kind bonus features. This can be very important for the overall gaming experience of the players, especially if we consider that there are players who like to enjoy long playing sessions. The games are available for desktop play, with some of them being available for mobile play as well. SG Gaming has a lot of games and making them compatible with mobile devices takes a lot of resources. Hopefully, Scientific Games will direct some resources to this kind of projects.
Security & Fairness
Both the former Barcrest and the current SG Gaming have had an amazing cooperation with the UK Gambling Commission. All of their operations have been under the close supervision of this top-notch online gaming regulator. In addition to this, SG Gaming’s products have to meet the terms of Scientific Games. In a way, it’s another line of testing that has to be passed. Otherwise, none of the SG’s games can be available to the general public. The bottom line is, SG Gaming’s products are safe to play and they’re fair to the players.
There are more than 100 games in total going across all game categories like slots, roulette, blackjack, poker, jackpots and a decent amount of arcade games. SG Gaming has acquired the rights to use Marvel’s characters and they’ve produced games like Iron Man and Spiderman. To be honest, they look way better than Playtech’s depiction of these superheroes. Furthermore, we recommend you to try the relatively recently released Ooh Aah Dracula slot and to try out the updated version of Rocky The Italian Stallion slot.
A rather interesting fact to note is that SG Gaming is offering 11 different versions of roulette games. Each of them is unique in some way. Even if you were to try every one of them, the game experience will be different, despite the seemingly identical game rules.
