The D is the only downtown casino where fans can enjoy Sigma Derby, and it’s one of only two locations in the entire city. For many gamblers, Sigma Derby is a piece of Las Vegas history that will forever remind them of placing bets with coins and biting their nails in anticipation as the tiny horses round the corner to the finish line.
