BattleBots, your favorite show to watch on mute while at the gym, is breaking into the slot machine business with an all-new game set to debut during the taping of its sixth season at Caesars Entertainment Studios in Las Vegas.
The linked progressive jackpot game features a 75-inch curved 4K screen, where you can see some of the show’s most famous bots – HyperShock, Witch Doctor, and Tombstone, among others – beat and blast each other while you try to win enough money to buy a robot that can do your most hated housework. Developed in partnership with Konami Gaming, the slot game will be released in 2022.
This season’s bots and their human creators will compete for the 2021 World Championship and its grand prize, The Giant Nut, through September 4. You can be in the live audience, cheering on the bot to beat all bots, by picking up a ticket online. Attendees will be required to wear masks and show proof of COVID-19 vaccine to gain entry.
BattleBots bowed in 2000 on Comedy Central, airing for two years before going on hiatus until 2015, when it was picked up by ABC. Since 2018, the show has run on Discovery Channel, and a spinoff program, BattleBots: Bounty Hunters, is set to debut in January on streaming network Discovery+.
