NFL-Themed Slot Machines Have Arrived

The NFL is all about gambling these days.

Now that legalized gambling is sweeping the country state by state, all the professional sports leagues have gone all in on gambling. If there’s any indication the NFL is all about gambling, they actuallly let a team move to Las Vegas. The NFL is always exploring new ways to make money, and this time it involves people repeatedly feeding money into slot machines while they wait for the next live games on which to also gamble.

Here’s the PR announcement explaining the new venture:

The National Football League (NFL) and Aristocrat Gaming™ have announced an exclusive multi-year slot machine licensing agreement. Under the terms of this agreement, Aristocrat will have an exclusive global license to build land-based NFL-themed slot machines as well as a non-exclusive license for virtual sports games, marking the first deal of its kind for the NFL. The partnership will provide the NFL an opportunity to further drive fan engagement through a new gaming experience.

When offered an opportunity to further drive fan engagement, it would almost be irresponsible to say no.

“The world of casino gaming is transforming, and the NFL is thrilled to be teaming up with industry leader, Aristocrat Gaming, with their proven track record in slot machine innovation and commitment to responsible gaming,” said Rachel Hoagland, Vice President, Gaming and Partnership Management, NFL. “Today’s slot machines offer engaging experiences akin to popular video game consoles that our fans adore, and we believe with Aristocrat’s vision, we can bring that exciting gaming experience to fans on the casino floor looking to show their love of football.”

The NFL is a multi billion dollar business, so of course when they see an opportunity for revenue and a little branding, of course they’re going to go for it.

Expect the slots to hit the casino floor in 2023.
