It is definitely there, my only trepidation is that the house edge is significantly worse than the one at MGM: http://wizardofodds.com/games/derby/. The D house edge is obviously updated recently, but it may be tough to know if the information on the MGM machine is still accurate, since the other casinos are still listed that clearly no longer offer the game.

If they are accurate, it looks like the MGM machine has an ~12% house edge while the one at The D is over 20%! Yikes!

There are signs for "vintage" vegas in the D, which is on the second floor. That's where the machine is at. It's lots of fun and a little hard to find at first. It took me about 90 minutes to go through $10

Yes it's definitely there. My DH and I played there in November. Go up the steps outside and through the doors (towards the back) to the right. I think we did better here than the MGM. We played about 5 hours on $40. So much fun!!
