Aristocrat Gaming has partnered with Inspired Entertainment to offer virtual sports to football fans. The company currently holds a worldwide licensing agreement with the National Football League (NFL).
Players will be able to access NFL-themed virtual sports simulation matchups and place wagers on those events. Fans will also have the option to bet in a variety of ways, including on total touchdowns, over/under total score and on money line bets.
The NFL-themed simulations will include heritage team marks, AFC and NFC Conference logos, the Super Bowl logo and the league’s 32 logos.
Aristocrat Gaming CEO Hector Fernandez said: "Through Inspired, this NFL license expansion into virtual sports presents a ground-breaking entertainment option that's never been done before.
"As part of our overall NFL strategy, we are thrilled to tap into the global appeal the NFL offers to current and new fans and casino, sports betting, and lottery players."
Inspired President and CEO Brooks Pierce commented on the company’s eagerness to work with Aristocrat and engage football fans.
He said: "We are delighted to work with the NFL and Aristocrat Gaming on this historic new simulated gaming experience to bring fans a unique way to connect with the game, even in the off-season.
"We look forward to launching this partnership and reaching millions of NFL fans with exciting entertainment options both online and in retail."
