The relationship between the NFL and sports betting may be increasingly murky, the league’s relationship with other facets of gambling continues to grow. Today Aristocrat and the NFL announced the launch of the first-ever NFL-branded slot machines.
“Today, we are thrilled to debut the first look of the new NFL-licensed slot machines, which will provide an innovative entertainment experience for millions of NFL fans who enjoy the fun of casino gaming,” said Aristocrat Gaming CEO Hector Fernandez. “We are changing the game with this first-of-its-kind slot machine, offering fans the ability to customize the experience by selecting their favorite team in any casino they choose to play.”
The game, called NFL Super Bowl Jackpots™, is just the first in a line of games that will debut across the rest of the year and into 2024. The other titles include:
- Overtime Cash™
- Super Bowl Link™
- NFL Kickoff™
- Winning Drive™
- Rings of Victory™
“The unveiling of the first NFL-themed slot machines represents an opportunity to bring the League closer to our fans in a new area,” said Joe Ruggiero, SVP of Consumer Products at the NFL. “We have valued collaborating with Aristocrat to bring their vision and responsible gaming resources to fans during the 2023 NFL season and beyond.”
NFL Super Bowl Jackpots™ will feature up to a $1 million progressive jackpot where available and will incorporate popular stadium anthems during key points of the game. Players can also pick their team to customize the look and feel of gameplay. The games are housed in Aristocrat’s new King Max™ cabinet.
Aristocrat teased the arrival of the new machines at the Global Gaming Expo last fall, but this is the first glimpse the public is getting of the game. The NFL signed the deal with Aristocrat in the fall of 2021.
