BattleBots, the world’s premier robot combat competition, announced on Wednesday the first official BattleBots casino slot games, developed by Konami Gaming.
The industry’s first BattleBots slot machine is now previewing to the public at Caesars Entertainment Studios during the new season taping and 2021 World Championship. The slot game includes some of BattleBots’ robot competitors like Tombstone, Witch Doctor, HyperShock, and more. The slot game’s general release is scheduled for next year.
The new BattleBots slot series is displayed at the live taping of BattleBots Season 6, at Caesars Entertainment Studios in Las Vegas through September 4, 2021. Tickets are available to the public and can be purchased by visiting the BattleBots ticketing page.
The new BattleBots linked progressive jackpot game is shown on Konami’s newest game machine hardware DIMENSION 75C, with a 75-inch curved screen in 4K Ultra High-Definition (UHD). Konami will also be making the series available on its DIMENSION 49J machine, with 49-inch “J-curve” display in 4K UHD.
Edward Roski (Trey), BattleBots creator and CEO, said: “For more than two decades, BattleBots fans have taken part in the competition’s most exciting moments. Now BattleBots slots are taking robot fighting time to the casino floor, as another way to join in iconic scenes and machines from the show with a cash chance. Teams and audiences here at the 2021 World Championship event have been truly wowed by the slot game’s unique creativity and massive presence. We’re thrilled to work with Konami to bring BattleBots to the gaming arena.”
Tom Jingoli, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at Konami Gaming, commented: “When people across the world watch BattleBots, it gives a sense of excitement, competition, curiosity, and wit, unlike any other competition. There is no combat sport quite like BattleBots. And there’s no casino slot quite like BattleBots. We put the BattleBox into a casino slot where the battle is a bonus and the Giant Nut is a Grand Jackpot.”
