Konami Gaming has installed its new Fortune Cup multi-player mechanical horse-racing game in the second-level Vintage Vegas casino floor at the D Las Vegas.
It is a fitting installation for the horse-racing attraction, a 10-player machine featuring a 9-foot-wide mechanical eight-horse track enhanced by synchronized real-time digital animation and innovative horse figures that move around the track to simulate real race horses. Konami styled the game on its own mechanical race games in Japanese arcades, but also on the legendary casino game Sigma Derby, a 10-player mechanical track that first appeared in the 1980s.
The D’s Vintage Vegas room, which also features coin-operated video poker and slots, is one of only two Las Vegas locations still operating the original Derby game from the now-defunct Sigma Game. Fortune Cup sits next to the beloved Sigma Derby in the casino.
