LAS VEGAS, March 24, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Aristocrat Gaming™ announced today that they have chosen Inspired Entertainment, Inc. (NASDAQ: INSE) as their partner to bring a new virtual sports experience to football fans worldwide through Aristocrat Gaming’s multi-year, global licensing agreement with the National Football League (NFL).
The NFL-themed virtual sports simulations will provide fans the ability to wager on teams as they go head-to-head in fast-paced, ultra-realistic simulated matchups.

“Through Inspired, this NFL license expansion into virtual sports presents a ground-breaking entertainment option that’s never been done before,” said Hector Fernandez, Aristocrat Gaming CEO. “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.”
