    Hey VMBers! Wife and I are here in Vegas! Sorry I couldn't find it anywhere on the forum (having trouble searching with my phone) but is sigma derby at the MGM Grand still? Or anywhere else for that matter?

    Thanks for any help!

    I know that there is one upstairs at The D on Fremont St...not sure if there is still one at the MGM anymore. Good Luck!

    It was definitely still there at the MGM when I was there three weeks ago.

    They even had it roped off for cleaning or repairs when I walked by it at one point, but it was up and running later.

    Is it still in the same place at the MGM, right by the buffet?

    Yep, about halfway between the buffet and the poker room.

    As remmerde says, it is between the buffet and poker room now. They moved it a bit. Last time I played it there, there was a huge Avatar machine sorta blocking its view in one direction.

    Nice one, cheers. I'm sure I read on TA that it had been removed but perhaps it was just away for maintenance.

    Yah, a friend of mine was at MGM not long ago and had texted me that my fave mechanical machine was gone. Good to hear it was just temporary, it seems. :)

    I saw on Pawn Stars the other day that Derek was trying to sell his SD machine to Rick for $80,000. His expert said $30,000 I think so no deal.

    Assuming this wasn't a PR stunt (probably was though), I am not pleased to see Derek attempting to sell it.

    I did see it on pawn stars as well.. I can only imagine it was a PR stunt. but I could just see rick saying.. "I take all the risk, I have to figure out how to move it, and it takes up a lot of room at the store"

    That machine is one of the main reasons I venture downtown occasionally! I hope it stays.

    I'm glad it's back at the MGM, last time we were there it had been removed!
