The NFL has decided to dive deep into the gambling world. The league is partnered with several sportsbooks, with products available for fans both on the retail and online casino side. Valley Forge Casino recently installed NFL slot machines that have been right in line with the lofty expectations.

PA online casinos offer several NFL-themed products such as table games and slots. Retail casinos are starting to do the same. PlayPennsylvania spoke with Joyce Serrian, VP of Casino Operations at Valley Forge Casino, detailing the popularity of NFL slot machines.

NFL slots among most popular at Valley Forge Casino

Several Pennsylvania casinos added NFL-themed machines to their slot mix last fall with the assumption that the games would be wildly popular.

Valley Forge Casino is one of the properties that added NFL Super Bowl Jackpots to the gaming floor. Former Eagles receiver Freddie Mitchell participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony by pulling the first slot last November.

The machines have been operating for around three months, which is a good benchmark to start gauging the public’s interest. Serrian told PlayPennsylvania through email responses that the machines have been a “huge hit.”

“The NFL machines are NEVER empty,” she said. “We have guests who have been coming in just for those games and spend a good amount of their time there.”

Just because football season is over doesn’t mean the machines will slow down, either. Serrian told PlayPennsylvania that players love being able to choose their favorite teams and that the bonusing is very generous.

“Philly is a football town,” she said. “The suburbs where we’re located are populated with full-time, year-round Philly football fanatics. We expect them to continue drawing people in, especially when they start missing the action on TV.”

Valley Forge Casino acquired three machines in November and does not have plans to install more at the moment. However, should different variations of the games be released soon, Valley Forge Casino will jump all over it.

Valley Forge Casino shows mixed slot results since acquiring NFL slots

NFL slot machines have operated for two full months at Valley Forge Casino. In the months leading up to the release of the new game, Valley Forge Casino generated the following revenue totals:

  • August: $8.5 million
  • September: $8.6 million
  • October: $7.8 million

The property installed the games in late November, as revenue totaled $8.4 million that month. Then, in December, Valley Forge Casino generated $9 million in slot revenue, which it has only done twice since July 2022.

January revenue dipped to $7.9 million, which seems a bit surprising. Perhaps it was just an off month for the property.

Despite the decline last month, Valley Forge Casino is more than happy with the results of NFL Super Bowl Jackpot slots.

Aristocrat has strong retail and online casino presence in Keystone State

Aristocrat, which developed the NFL-themed slot, is starting to grow its presence in the Keystone State. In addition to the retail brand, Aristocrat’s online brands, Anaxi and Roxor Gaming, are thriving within the state.

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) granted Anaxi an online casino manufacturing license last month. And it had already brought the exciting retail slot, Buffalo, to online platforms last fall.

Earlier this week, the PGCB approved an online casino license for Roxor Gaming, which Aristocrat acquired in February 2023.

Aristocrat is one of the top game developers, which certainly benefits the entire Pennsylvania market.
