Looking forward to trying it in October.

Unless something changes, I'll be staying at theD two nights: 10/4 and 10/5.

The one at MGM worked just fine when I was there a few weeks ago.

Although I couldn't find any info about it on their website, the Sigma Derby is one of the featured photos in rotation on the D home page:

I hear there is a similar, but more modern, game at Jerry's Nugget. I plan to check it out and write about it.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Given the cult following this game has I am surprised there are not more installations. I can only guess the maintenance costs are high given its mechanical nature.

I will have to check it out next time I visit although the 'D' left a bad taste in my mouth the last time I stopped in. A surly UTH dealer went on a huge run. She was berating my (correct) play and continuously eking out winning hands. OK it's a given I will have losing sessions but don't try to tell me it is because I am playing wrong! OTOH I have enjoyed Nick's contributions to this forum and would not mind meeting him there.

In my few trips to vegas so far, I have spent at least 3-4 hours at this crazy game and consumed several adult beverages while yelling at the horses to move their lazy asses. What a riot this game is and I am very happy to hear that others have begun installing it. As far as the reason it doesn't have more installs, the one at MGM had at least one seat out of order each time I was there and attendants were constantly being called to fix jammed quarters, buttons not working, etc. etc. At 25 cents per race minimum, I can understand why casinos avoid this type of game but as a late night drinking game, it certainly got me in the door.
