Scientific Games Slots
SG Gaming slots are OJO's bread & butter
Scientific Games is the Unilever or Reckitt Benckiser of gaming. You probably haven’t heard of them, but they’re everywhere! From classic Barcrest slots to innovative new games from WMS or NYX, SG Gaming slots are part of gaming folklore and the software developer is responsible for a huge slice of our games selection.
Chances are you’ve already played a game that one of their companies has developed. Each division has their own style and story to tell, but they all have 1 thing in common – premium quality entertainment that meets OJO’s high standards!
Pick any of these little crackers to see why SG is one of the biggest players in the business…

Who are SG Gaming?
Scientific Games is a Vegas-based gaming giant founded in 1973 but which has largely focused on offline gaming equipment for most of its life. Its long history is a tangled corporate web of mergers and acquisitions, subsidiaries and joint ventures which we won’t bore you with. But you won’t find Scientific Games in your Game Provider filter, so we’d best explain why!
As Scientific Games spent most of its time developing slots for land-based casinos, most of their slots have not made it to the virtual world. But since 2010 SG has been eyeing up a bigger slice of the online slots pie, and for that you need games – lots of them! Unfortunately, knocking up a big portfolio of cutting-edge game content isn't feasible overnight, so they pursued a different strategy instead. Can't build 'em? Buy 'em!
Their acquisition splurge started in 2011 with the prized purchase of Barcrest, who started life in 1968 making analogue fruit machines of the kind you pumped shrapnel into during your misspent youth. They then turned some of their most popular games into online slots and you’ll find almost 40 of the best Barcrest slots at PlayOJO including Rainbow Riches and the Wizard of Oz Emerald City.
Next up was WMS Industries (better known to slotsfans as Williams Interactive) in 2013. Williams was making pinball machines during the 80s but they've also jumped on the interactive bandwagon and you'll see over 40 of their games at PlayOJO including the fabled Monopoly and Zeus series.
In 2014 SG snaffled up Bally Technologies, maker of land-based slots in the 1930s and now proud owner of 17 games at PlayOJO - what a journey! OJO gives them even more props for releasing the official Anchorman video slot too. Stay classy!
Finally, SG bagged their biggest deal yet with the acquisition of the NYX Gaming Group in 2018. The real kicker? A portfolio of over 120 games including Rainbow Riches Leprechaun's Gold and another 2 Monopoly titles.
All told, that means you'll find well over 200 SG Gaming games at PlayOJO under the brand names we’ve mentioned. That's more than any other supplier including the mighty Microgaming!
SG has won plenty of awards over the years for its innovation, leadership, land-based products and game themes. In 2018 alone they picked up Best Mobile Supplier at the EGR Italy awards, a Rising Star gong at G2E Asia, Social Casino Supplier at the Gaming Intelligence Awards and a couple of Communitas awards for green initiatives and humanitarian efforts.
But it’s the best SG Gaming UK slots that you’re really here for, so let’s get started….
A Guide to SG Gaming slots
The OJO SG Gaming slots portfolio is all video slots, so no progressive jackpots or table games like Evolution Gaming Live Casino. Most of their games have a land-based casino feel but that doesn't mean to say it's all leprechauns and Asian mystique though. We’ve also got branded slots like Anchorman, Michael Jackson King of Pop, King Kong Fury, Judge Dredd, James Dean and the Monopoly series, arguably the jewel in the SG crown.
Unlike smaller studios such as Big Time Gaming who focus on a small number of innovative games, SG offers a large selection of primarily classic slots. You might not encounter new grid formats, cascading reels or mind-bending game mechanics, but you will find a slot (or 10) that matches your favourite theme. If you’re a regular slots player in real casinos or you just prefer your online slots black-no-sugar, then our SGgaming games selection will do you proud.
Most Popular SG Gaming Slots
Give SG is really a collection of different game studios, it’s worth going into what makes them tick and which games have propelled them to SG stardom!
Play Barcrest fruit machines online
After SG bought them, Barcrest was merged with SG Gaming and its developers work out of their UK offices. The brand still makes offline gaming equipment but the Barcrest UK team focuses on interactive software. The undisputed champs of Barcrest online slots are Rainbow Riches and Rainbow Riches Pick ‘n’ Mix, though we give honourable mentions to their Monopoly Bring The House Down slot and the retro classic Thai Flower slot, consistently rated one of the best Barcrest slots online.
NYX top slots
The NYX Gaming Group is a powerhouse within a powerhouse, developing ever-better NYX gaming slots like the official King Kong Fury slot. Superb free spins and bonus features found in games like Jackpot Jester 50K and Judge Dredd are among the many reasons to play NYX gaming slots.
Williams Interactive games
Before being acquired by Scientific Games Williams Interactive had long been making hit gaming titles. Our selection of almost WMS (Williams Interactive) slots has proved popular with OJOers who flock to top Williams Interactive games like the Zeus 1000 slot, Super Monopoly Money slot and a Williams Interactive slots classic, the Leprechaun’s Fortune slot.
Best Bally online slots
Despite only offering around 15 to 20 Bally Technologies slots machines at PlayOJO, we’ve got a frankly astonishing selection. In just a few clicks you can experience Bally’s Ra & The Scarab Temple slot, Wacky Races, Rocket Returns and Kooza slot, their Cirque De Soleil-branded game.
OJO’s Favourite SG Games slots
There are far too many SGgaming slots to mention here so we’ll just highlight 3 collections that OJOers have been playing for years and probably will be long after the robots have taken over!
Rainbow Riches slots
The SG Gaming Rainbow Riches series sits is at the very heart of their library. One of the top performing slot franchises of all time, Rainbow Riches slots is all leprechauns, pots of gold and Celtic luck. Between the SG brands, we’ve got 8 different Rainbow Riches video slots, from the original which was ranked #1 in the iGaming Tracker 2017 Top 10 to variations like Rainbow Riches Pick n Mix. The series may date back a while but it gives gamers what they want – vibrant colour, fun themes and the potential for monster wins.
Another slots series that follow the tried and tested 5-reel, 3-row slot formula, Zeus video slots are to Greek mythology what Rainbow Riches is to Celtic folklore. OJOers can trigger up to 100 Free Spins plus more if you retrigger them during the free games. Simple but effective! Once you’ve mastered Zeus, move straight to Zeus 1000 for the same theme but a radical new format thanks to the extra Colossal Reel.
One of the most sought after licences in gaming, Monopoly has spawned 8 SG Gaming UK slots including OJO’s favourite, Super Monopoly Money. From novel pick-a-prize bonus games to mega multipliers and wins of up to £250,000 – all tied together by Mr Monopoly’s glitzy boomtown theme - PlayOJO’s Monopoly series is pure, straight-up fun.
SG Gaming slot features
Although a diverse selection of themes is one of SG’s strengths, their games offer all of the features demanded by the modern online slots fan. That means plenty of scatters, wilds, multipliers and gamble features.
Top of any slots player’s list are Free Spins and respins, though. From the standard 10 Free Games you get in slots like Excalibur’s Choice to the 100 you can swing when you play King Kong Fury, SG Gaming Free Spins are a staple of the slot portfolio.
What about paylines? Games like Starmania keep it simple with just 10 fixed paylines, while Savannah Sunrise gives you 243 winlines. They also cater for the really greedy Ways-To-Winners with games like Raging Rhino 4,096 Ways or NYX’s own version, Raging Rhino Megaways, which has just the 117,649 of them!
SG Gaming bonus games come in all shapes and sizes too, like the picking games in the Wizard of Oz Emerald City and James Dean slots. Wins can be sizable too, despite the lack of SG Gaming jackpot slots, with games like the SG Gaming Jackpot Jester slot paying out up to 50,000 coins!
SG’s brands aren’t short on innovation either. Just look at the Mighty Reels layout in games like Might Black Knight, or Colossal Reels, a WMS innovation borrowed from land-based games and put to use in OJO slots like Zeus 1000, Epic Monopoly II and Spartacus Gladiator of Rome. With its second portrait-layout reel, Colossal Reels delivers even more paylines and more room for stacked symbols.
SG Gaming slot RTPs – the average payout percentage for each game - are typical of virtually all of our games at PlayOJO. Fire up any Barcrest, Bally, NYX or WMS slot and you’ll be getting somewhere in the mid 90%’s. All of our Scientfic Games games are eligible for money back into your OJOplus balance too. That means whenever you play, we pay! Your OJOplus cash awarded after every spin is also available to spend immediately– no strings! And in fact we’re the only SG Gaming UK casino that offers free spins and bonuses with no wagering requirements too. Seriously amigo!
You can play virtually of our SG slots for free at PlayOJO as well. Log in, select any game and if you see ‘Try for free’, it means there’s a SG Games demo play version you can spin with zero risk. Learn the paytable, figure out how to unlock Free Spins, then play for real when you’re ready to roll!
Are SG Games mobile slots as good?
Here’s that ‘omni’ word again! Everything SG or their associated sub brands do is omni-channel - geared to a seamless user experience, whatever computer, tablet or phone you’re using. Most games these days are developed in HTML5, which means no specific mobile version is needed. And because lots of SG games come from land-based upright slot machines, they playable in portrait as well as landscape, which makes a nice change.
Take the Kronos Unleashed and Volts & Bolts slots for example. Fast, smooth, visually impressive and touch-screen friendly. Just how OJO likes it!
Are SG Gaming games fair and safe?
Firstly, OJO only chooses the most reputable names in gaming to work with, so if they’re on this site, they’re legit! But Scientific Games is a global firm with a long history of trusted gaming. One look at the long list of gaming licences that SG and its subsidiaries have obtained - from the UK Gambling Commission to regulators in Malta and Alderney – tells you all you need to know.
Their software is tested by independent agencies like eCOGRA, and they’re committed to Responsible Gaming, as OJO and all of his crew are.
