A slot manufacturer that may remind some out older readers of their glory days which saw them enjoying slot machines in land-based casinos and pubs, is that of Barcrest. Barcrest entered the gaming world way back in 1968 and experienced their best years between the 1970s and 1990s before the internet took the gaming world by storm.
During this 20 year spell, pretty much all slot machines found land-based casinos and pubs where those created by Barcrest. The new involvement of internet within the gaming world did not do Barcrest any favours and in 1998, IGT (International Game Technology) acquired Barcrest before selling to Scientific Games in 2011.
Despite going through a phase of being passed around between other slot manufacturers, Barcrest is still moving strongly as a slot manufacturer and releasing slots that are sure to compete with what other slot giants are releasing.
