With all the bright shining lights and twinkling facades in Vegas you may not have noticed a new Spotlight shining into the Las Vegas night sky. It's very rare that a TV show can break into real life, but BattleBots has done it with the opening of their live show in Las Vegas February 3rd 2023. Just off the strip behind the Horseshoe hotel and Casino lies the permanent home of the BattleBots: Destruct-a-thon live experience.

Nightly shows will let you experience the power and excitement of live robotic combat. You'll be able to see your favorite television show regulars along with some new upstarts attempting to break into the limelight. But maybe you need even more BattleBots excitement, even more immersion. Well, then make your way down to the Silverton Casino where you can get another taste of BattleBots excitement by playing the new BattleBots slot machines. The gigantic, state-of-the-art slot machines that feature clips of the best robot battles as celebrations of the players’ big wins. The BattleBots franchise is growing and becoming more immersive and exciting every day. The television show is now entering its seventh season on Discovery Channel Thursdays at 8:00 p.m., and showing nightly just off the strip in Las Vegas.
