For the “first time ever,” The Southern Gaming Summit, to be held at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum May 6-8, will feature a “Best of Show” slot award competition on the trade show floor.
The Summit announced that 12 of the industry’s biggest names in slot manufacturing are already signed up for the competition. Each will designate one machine in their booth to be voted on by attendees at iPad stations, scoring the game on a scale of 1-10 in six different business and entertainment categories.
The top three winning games will be announced on the closing afternoon of the trade show.
Participating will be machines manufactured by Ainsworth Game Technology, American Gaming Systems, Aristocrat Technologies, Aruze Gaming America, Bally Technologies, Cadillac Jack, IGT, Incredible Technologies, Konami Gaming, Multimedia Games, WMS Gaming and Zitro.
The categories to be scored will be overall appearance, cabinet, entertainment value, bonus round/extra play, and options for line/bet configuration and denomination.
