by Christopher Palmeri | Bloomberg | September 19, 2018

Bobby Axelrod, the fictional hedge-fund manager in the Showtime series Billions, is getting his own slot machine — something Gordon Gekko could only dream of. The high stakes world of the hit TV show Billions will soon be coming to casinos, thanks to a licensing agreement between Aristocrat, CBS Consumer Products, and Showtime Networks.

The game will feature the popular Mighty Cash™ feature, as well as a $500,000 progressive start-up jackpot, according to a statement Wednesday. It will be unveiled in booth #1141 at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E), the casino industry trade show that begins October 8 in Las Vegas.

According to Markets Business Insider,

“The Billions Slot Game is based on Season 1 and 2, which includes fans’ favorite characters such as Chuck RhoadesBobby AxelrodWendy RhoadesLara Axelrod, and Taylor Mason.

The game appears on Aristocrat’s revolutionary flame55™ cabinet. The flame55 is complete with a 55″ double-curved HD monitor – the largest portrait double-curved display in the non-jumbo segment – ergonomic engineering, 4k-capable display, 2.1 stereo audio, individually controlled dynamic infinity edge LED lighting, a virtual button deck, and an exclusive beacon sign package.

While the slot-machine industry has licensed movies and TV shows for decades, manufacturers and casinos often opted for older titles that appealed to the typically more mature players on casino floors.
