Why does the top of that giant slot machine read "East Lansing" in Michigan State colours?

I'm inside The D on Fremont Street.

Huh. The top of the giant slot machine on its other side reads "Ann Arbor" in Michigan colours.

I google "the d east lansing slot machine."


The business rooms have names like Saginaw and Petosky.

Is The D supposed to be a Michigan-themed hotel and casino? Because…


The D stands for "downtown," and also refers to [majority owner] Derek Stevens' nickname, and Stevens' hometown of Detroit.

So not Michigan-themed, but with a hint of Michigan.

That explains its American Coney Island outpost.
