A high-stakes sports bet is gaining momentum as Derek Stevens, CEO of the D Las Vegas, closes in on a $1 million payout. Before the start of March Madness, Stevens placed a $25,000 bet at neighboring casino The Golden Nugget, with 40-1 odds on his alma mater University of Michigan to win the NCAA title.
Known for his risky bets, if Michigan wins against Loyola Chicago this Saturday, it will be the closest Stevens has ever gotten to a win of this magnitude big win.
To celebrate this huge game, the D Las Vegas will host a watch party at LONGBAR, inviting Downtown Las Vegas to cheer the Wolverines on to an NCAA championship.
- Saturday, March 31
- Tip-off begins at 3:09 p.m. PST
