Aristocrat has seen success with its series of NFL-themed slots. One unusual element is the ability to pick your favorite team. A player wonders if that pick has any impact:

I am a huge NFL fan and I enjoy the NFL slot machines! You get an option of choosing a team before you start spinning. Does the team you choose determine any outcomes? Or is choosing your team just a nice visual experience?


Imagine if Aristocrat gave Raiders fans the edge! No, in this case it’s a theme overlaid onto the same game. So when you select a team, it’s applying team-specific art to specific symbols, but the pay table and other settings remain the same.

When the games were first coming out, we got to see them at G2E in the Aristocrat booth. At the time we were told about some of the unique challenges that went into getting the game approved. 

Have you played the NFL slots yet?

Regulators had not seen the novel scenario of players getting to pick which pay table “symbols” were active, in the case of choosing a team and having that art applied, both to symbols on the screen and the pay table underneath. 

Despite the payouts being the same, the pay table structure and rules are a key part of how a game is reviewed and tested. Effectively, while the structure was the same, the game had 32 variations of pay tables depending on which team was active.

So both sides had to get creative to figure out how to best proceed, and fortunately the games were ultimately approved by regulators. And in turn Aristocrat was able to bring this fun element to the games, something that hadn’t been done in such a way before, particularly with 32 options available. 

Innovation continues to encourage some creative thinking, and regulation evolution, to keep up with what’s happening on the casino floor. Ultimately, for us players, it’s an improved experience. In the case of this game, you’re theming the game and its pay table, but the pays are the same regardless of team selection.
