The NFL continues to grow its brand—including in the gaming market with NFL-themed slot machines.
Last month at the Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas, presented by the American Gaming Association (AGA), I was provided a demonstration of three of the six NFL-themed slot machines that Aristocrat Gaming has rolled out.
“It’s very early on, but we’re really excited about what we’re hearing from operators and players,” said Ryan Scott, vice president of gaming operations for Aristocrat Gaming. “We’ve seen a really strong response online in YouTube videos and operators have given great feedback.”

That interest and positive response is growing like the speed of the Formula One racers speeding down the Las Vegas Strip this weekend. Along with December’s National Finals Rodeo and New Year’s celebrations in Las Vegas, and Super Bowl LVIII at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on February 11, 2024, there will be millions more fans taking in the opportunity to play these NFL slots and hit a jackpot.
The NFL Super Bowl Jackpots have a $1 million progressive jackpot, and that Super Bowl Jackpots slot machine is now available for play at 20 hotels and casinos in Las Vegas along with the Harry Reid International Airport. Slot players are entertained with six licensed “fan-favorite stadium anthems” during play.

There are an estimated 170 million NFL fans, and Aristocrat Gaming’s research and survey of fans has landed on a jackpot with the largest brand they’ve ever launched.
A big part of the attraction of the NFL-themed machines is how slot players can personalize the game experience and choose the NFL team they want to play.
“The suite of NFL-themed slot machines that Aristocrat has developed engages players that are already playing slots, and offers all NFL fans a unique experience,” said Jon Hanlin, senior vice president of commercial strategy for Aristocrat.
That includes the nearly 30 million NFL fans that already play slot machines. But there are more than 30 million additional new players that are already NFL fans who will become attracted to these new NFL slots with their favorite teams.
The games have various football-themed bonus features, and slot players can customize their gaming experience with the logos and helmets of any of the 32 NFL teams.
Aristocrat officials said the company can track which NFL teams are the most popular among customers playing the games.
“The NFL-licensed slot machines offer a unique opportunity for fans across the country to be engaged in a new way,” said Terese Whitehead, VP of consumer products and strategy at the NFL Players Association.
The Class III Vegas-style slot machines are Super Bowl Jackpots, Overtime Cash and Super Bowl Link as part of the NFL licensing agreement and partnership with Aristocrat Gaming.
The NFL hosts an extensive, integrated league-wide responsible betting public awareness program. For more information about responsible gambling tools and resources, visit responsibleplay.org, hosted by the National Council on Problem Gambling.

Ahead of last month’s Global Gaming Expo in Las Vegas, Aristocrat had launched its NFL-themed slot machines live at 27 casinos around the U.S. That number is growing quickly, along with the number of properties featuring those NFL slots for the millions of visitors coming to Las Vegas.
“We believe we can build a franchise around this brand, the No. 1 leading brand in North America,” Aristocrat CEO Hector Fernandez said at G2E.
