By - 12 September 2023

MGM Resorts is dealing with a cyber attack that affected credit card transactions and other computerized systems across its network of casinos and hotels.

The operator is believed to have shut down some of its systems to stop the attack getting more severe.

The company stated: “MGM Resorts recently identified a cybersecurity issue affecting some of the company’s systems. Promptly after detecting the issue, we quickly began an investigation with assistance from leading external cybersecurity experts. We also notified law enforcement and took prompt action to protect our systems and data, including shutting down certain systems.”

“Our investigation is ongoing, and we are working diligently to determine the nature and scope of the matter.”

The company’s website is down along with reports of dozens of slot machines being offline at Aria on the Las Vegas Strip, at Borgata in Atlantic City and at MGM Northfield in Ohio. At MGM Grand Detroit guests reported that credit card machines aren’t working and some digital keys for hotel room are no longer working.
