Beginning February 28, the D Las Vegas will saddle up as the first Downtown Las Vegas casino to feature the new-to-market Fortune Cup mechanical horse racing game. Created by Konami Gaming, Inc. and to be housed on property’s second-level Vintage Vegas casino floor, the new addition brings modern technology improvements to a high-demand gaming format.
“We are thrilled to introduce Fortune Cup to Downtown Las Vegas,” said Derek Stevens, CEO and owner of the D Las Vegas. “Not only is the technology outstanding, but people are really going to love the energy it brings to the casino floor.”
Fortune Cup will feature a 9-foot wide mechanical track with eight horses synchronized to real-time digital animation of the game’s action through connected LCD displays. Powered by Konami’s cutting-edge, cross-platform game engine, it includes 10 individualized betting stations with an intuitive touchscreen interface.
Ushering in the new wave of old-versus-new throwback gaming, Fortune Cup will sit next to another famous equestrian form of entertainment at the D. The beloved Sigma Derby racing experience has been captivating gamers in Las Vegas for decades. It is one of the last two machines in the city and has served as the centerpiece of the D’s Vintage Vegas section. The dueling games will offer guests two uniquely different ways to enjoy the iconic game.
Stevens continued, “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.”
As the casino division of one of the world’s top gaming entertainment companies, Konami developed Fortune Cup based on proven technology from the organization’s video game and arcade divisions. The game is a continuation of Konami’s specialty expertise in large multi-station products, designed for unique amusement and attraction.
