One thing that has been proven countless times in the gambling world, is that success as a software developer for land-based casinos may give a company a leg up when it comes to breaking into the online scene, but it is far from a guarantee of success.
One of the latest developers to attempt to make this jump is Aurify Gaming, who brought their array of slots online in early 2017.

Having spent many years creating slot machines for land-based casinos throughout the Southern United States, and more recently providing machines to Italy thanks to a partnership with Jasmine Gaming, it was in February of 2017 that Aurify finally took the jump to online casino titles.
With a name that means to turn something to gold, Aurify clearly have high expectations of themselves, but it’s tough not to feel like they may be disappointed on this occasion.
Only a few titles from Aurify have made their way into the online market at this point, with Geisha’s Garden, a samurai themed slot, being the stand out of the collection.
Both the online and land-based slot games from Aurify are stunning to look at, but in terms of concept and gameplay, they let themselves down in comparison to what online players are used to.
With many a slot based on various mythologies including Egyptian, Incan, Mayan, and Nordic, and other well worn themes like Ancient China, the Amazon, and more, the beauty of these slots cannot mask the derivative themes they have.
With no innovative or fresh features in the collection either, it’s going to take a lot of work from the clearly talented designers and developers at Aurify if they are going to offer something that can make an impact.
At this point, this is a developer that feels ten years behind everyone else, but it is possible that’ll change.
