His character on the show “Billions” has developed an adversarial relationship with federal prosecutor Chuck Rhoades, who is played by actor Paul Giamatti on the show.

The tendency in the past when it came to electronic gambling games of this nature was to use older TV shows or movies in the slot machine’s design. This has been going on for decades and the prevailing strategy was to pursue licensed associations with older titles as an appeal to an older casino cliental. An example cited in this report was “Wheel of Fortune“. Based on a 35-year old game show, this remains one of the most popular machines amongst an aging casino population of players.

While these machines still have their place on casino floors, electronic gambling games themed after current hit TV series such as “The Walking Dead” and “Game of Thrones ” are starting to take their place on the floor as popular machines for a younger generation.
