Aristocrat To Launch Pokie Based on “Billions”
Aristocrat continues to lead the way in the branded poker machine market. With games based on pop stars like Britney Spears and television shows like The Big Bang Theory, Aristocrat has some great branded pokies under its belt. Now, the developer will be giving the pokie treatment to another hit show – Billions.
Billions is a hugely popular television show that airs on CBS, chronicling a battle between Attorney Chuck Rhoades and hedge fund king Bobby Axelrod. It stars Emmy and Golden Globe winner Paul Giamatti, and has been nominated for several awards over its first two seasons. Basically – it’s one of the best shows on television at the moment, which makes it the perfect theme for a pokie.
“Engaging and edgy shows like Billions are incredibly fun for our design teams to work with and fuel our passion to create entertaining games for our customers and their players,” says Siobhan Lane of Aristocrat. “The CBS Consumer Products and Showtime Networks teams have been inspiring to work with, and we are very excited to present the new Billions Slot Game at G2E 2018.”
The Billions pokie game from Aristocrat will be based on the first two seasons of the show. So, you’ll see all of your favourite characters – Chuck Rhoades, Bobby Axelrod, Wendy Rhoades, Lara Axelrod, and Taylor Mason. Players will be able to spin the reels on this game using the flame55 cabinet, which features a 55” double-curved HD monitor which is 4K compatible.
With regards to gameplay and features, Aristocrat has not said very much so far. All we know at the moment is that the game will be linked to the Mighty Cash network, which offers players the chance to win prizes worth $500 000 and more.
Aristocrat will debut its Billions poker machine at the Global Gaming Expo (G2E) at Las Vegas in October. We’re sure to see many more exciting innovations from this and other pokie manufacturers, and we can wait to find out what they have in store.
