The NFL officially kicks off tomorrow and PA online casinos are gearing up with games and promotions to help fans get ready for the season.
There are several ways for players to enjoy using online casino games as a way to be connected to the action on the football field.
The new season begins when the Detroit Lions travel to face the Kansas City Chiefs for an 8:20 p.m. start on Thursday night.
BetMGM online casino is giving away Pittsburgh Steelers tickets
The Pittsburgh Steelers are well-represented on BetMGM Casino PA. The operator has three games dedicated to the Steelers, which include:
- First Person Roulette
- Blackjack Pro
Players need to bet on any of those Steelers-branded games and then get awarded one leaderboard point for every $20 of real money wagered.
The first promotional period already ended earlier this month, but players have two more chances to win tickets. Here is the following promotional schedule:
- Oct. 6 to Oct. 8
- Nov. 3 to Nov. 5
Players who place in the top 50 will receive a casino bonus, and anyone that finishes in first place wins tickets to an upcoming Steelers game.
Opting into a separate promotion with the Steelers, that runs until Sept. 10, automatically earns a player one entry into a merchandise sweepstakes. An additional entry can be gained after wagering $25 or more on any of the three Steelers games listed above.
One winner could win a signed item of any or all of the following:
Unibet online casino Pennsylvania NFL crossover promotion
Unibet offers players a promotion to bet on sports and play online casino games on Sundays throughout the season. The operator calls the promotion “Sunday Funday.” A player must opt in and place a $20 wager on the sportsbook to receive a $10 Unibet Casino PA bonus.
There are going to be so many options for players to bet on Sunday. Perhaps wagering on a PA team is the way to go for some sports bettors. The Philadelphia Eagles are a 4-point road favorite in New England, and the Pittsburgh Steelers are a 2.5-point home underdog against the 49ers.
Players can then use the $10 casino bonus on Steelers-themed games. Unibet offers Steelers Blackjack and Steelers First Person Roulette.
PA online casinos with football-themed games
Other platforms in the Keystone State offer football-themed online casino games to get fans ready for the upcoming season.
“Evolution Live Football Studio is a super-fast two-card game set in a football-themed environment. The football-enthusiast Game Presenters host the card game in sports commentator style, immersing you in the world of top-class football and covering real live fixtures involving the world’s top teams. The Football Studio card game itself couldn’t be simpler. Just two cards are dealt from a shoe with eight decks, face-up on a football pitch-style table. Players simply bet on a home win, away win or draw. Place your bet now and see if you’ll have a winning hand.”
DraftKings Casino also provides players with football-themed blackjack. The game is played on what looks and feels like a football field, with yard-markers visible and a football logo at the top of the table.
Fans have a ton of options to win prizes and play fun, football-themed games to keep up the excitement throughout the 2023 NFL season.
NFL slots at retail Pennsylvania casinos
Pennsylvania players can get their NFL fix of casino games at retail properties across the state, too. Rivers Casino Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, Valley Forge Casino and Live! Casino Pittsburgh confirmed to PlayPennsylvania that NFL-themed slots will be added to their gaming floors.
Live! Casino Pittsburgh Vice President of Slots and Marketing, Bryan Prettyman, said:
“Approximately 25% of the slot machines currently on our floor are Aristocrat. Live! Casino is constantly listening to guest feedback to ensure we have the most popular slots. True to form, we recently signed a contract to receive several NFL-themed slots, but do not have an estimated delivery time frame. We expect they will be a big hit.”
The addition of NFL slot machines is designed to attract a younger audience of players. PA casinos have invested more than $250 million in upgrades and entertainment since the pandemic to rejuvenate facilities. It’s worked, because PA casinos recorded the highest slot revenue ($2.45 billion) since 2011/2012. Retail slots accounted for 44.4% of the entire state’s gambling revenue.
Adding NFL slots to PA casinos is only going to help the bottom line.
