Episode

When celebrating Robanukah 3010, instead of spinning a dreidel like in Chanukah, Bender played a game with a droidel (6ACV13). Bender told Hermes that it is similar to a dreidel, except it is rigged to always make him win. The droidel does this by turning itself over with two Robotic arms in order to control which side it lands on.
