Konami’s Fortune Cup™ Mechanical Horse Racing at the D

If you’re in Downtown Vegas and want to try a new type of gaming,  the D is just your spot. Here, you’ll find the usual casino games like roulette, blackjack, craps, and (of course) slots, but what you might not be familiar with is the classic casino resident, the Sigma Derby horse race game. This game is so rare, it can only be found at the D and one other casino in Las Vegas. So what is Sigma Derby? This electro-mechanical horse race game is from 1985 and can host up to 10 players. You can bet on the five different horses in the race.

If you think that sounds exciting, wait until you hear about the newest game calling the D casino floor home. Introducing, Konami’s Fortune Cup™ Mechanical Horse Racing! This new game puts a spin on the Sigma Derby and creates an adrenaline rush for all gamers. Here’s what you can expect from the heart-pumping casino game.

Fortune Cup Mechanical Horse Racing

On February 28th, the D Hotel & Casino introduced their newest casino game, the Fortune Cup™ Mechanical Horse Racing game! The Sigma Derby at the D is already a fan-favorite and in high demand, so it only makes sense to bring in a new and improved version that offers modern improvements for the visitors. Casino goers can find this new and exciting game on the second level of the D in the Vintage Vegas casino section.

What to Know About This Fortune Cup Game

Created by Konami Gaming Inc., the new mechanical horse racing game by Fortune Cup™  brings outstanding technology and an unmatched energy and excitement to the casino floor. The newest Fortune Cup™  game will feature eight horses ready to race around the 9-foot wide mechanical track. The race will also be projected in real-time on the digital screen for players to enjoy the game’s action and animations. Players can choose to sit at one of the 10 betting stations, equipped with individual touchscreen interfaces.

As one of the few casinos in Las Vegas that celebrates both old and new games, the D decided that the most appropriate location for this exciting new game would be right next to the beloved Sigma Derby. With the two games in the same space, casino goers have the opportunity to enjoy two different horse racing experiences.

Derek Stevens, CEO and owner of the D Las Vegas, explained to, “we’ve seen such great success with Sigma Derby that it only makes sense for us to find even more creative ways to continue that type of fun. Fortune Cup is our way of paying homage to the games that made us fall in love with Las Vegas in the first place.”

Make your way to the casino floor at the D Las Vegas today for your chance to participate in this new and exciting addition to the world of gaming!

Introducing: American Coney Island

It’s safe to say that Las Vegas is a culinary hotspot. Known for our top-notch food options and more cuisines than you could ever imagine, many one-of-a-kind restaurants are proud to call Sin City “home.” The Detroit-natives behind American Coney Island recently expanded out of Michigan and into the D Las Vegas and brought the city’s favorite Coney dogs with them. Family owned and operated since 1917, American Coney Island was founded by Constantine “Gust” Keros, who immigrated from Greece to Detroit in 1903.

Say Hello to American Coney Island

American Coney Island has 100, going on 101, years of experience making food people love. Lucky for us, they have decided to expand and share their above-and-beyond hot dogs with the residents and visitors of Las Vegas. As the oldest family-owned business in the state of Michigan, no one can do The Coney quite like this family. For decades, the famous Coney dog has been an institution in Downtown Detroit. If the name sounds familiar, it’s probably because they have been featured several times on the Food Network, Travel Channel, The Chew, and way more. Oh, and if you had any doubts, they have also won the best Coney in the country for consistently serving up comfort food at its finest. American Coney Island currently has locations in downtown Detroit, the Detroit Zoo, and right here in the D Las Vegas.

The Coney

If you think you’ve had a chili dog, think again. Known for its high-quality meat, special secret Chili Sauce developed by the family decades ago, and warm steamed bun, The Coney is a tantalizing treat. Whether you top your Coney with mustard or sweet chopped onions, you won’t soon forget this timeless favorite. It even has that satisfying “snap” we love, thanks to the all-natural casing around the Dearborn sausage. Pair it with french fries (topped with chili, of course) for a complete and balanced meal! You won’t be able to find this distinctive taste and flavor anywhere else besides American Coney Island.

While fancy, gourmet restaurants are everywhere in Las Vegas, there is something to be said about this inexpensive and delicious delicacy. On your next trip to Vegas, make a special stop at the only American Coney Island restaurant in the West (you’re going to want to come back for more!). American Coney Island is well worth the trip and no one can copy these iconic Coney dog connoisseurs. The American Coney Island restaurant in the D is even open 24 hours a day, so you can get this affordable and delicious food whenever the desire strikes, which will likely be often.
