As the baby boomer generation grows older, casinos have noticed the amount of slot machine players decreasing. That is why at this year's Southern Gaming Summit, a main topic was how to attract the younger generation to computerized games. Gaming manufactures realize this and turned the convention center floor into a casino Wednesday, allowing casino officials to try out the latest technology in gaming for free.

Randy Green, Publisher for B.M.P. Gaming Group, says, "So there is definitely a mix of the old standby game, like Wheel of Fortune and what not, that have the history on the floor, but if you walk around, you'll definitely see some games that are tied to the theme of movies and the entertainment industry." The gaming companies are actually competing against each other this year for best new game.
