MGM Resorts subject of a cybersecurity incident

By Dave Sawyer, Last updated Sep 13, 2023

Reports coming out of Las Vegas Nevada late last night surround the MGM Resorts Group who have been battling an ongoing cyber attack that has taken their bookings and reservation systems offline.

According to CNBC it is reported that the MGM Resorts have said that they have suffered a “cyber security issue” which the FBI yesterday evening classed it as ‘ongoing’.

In response to the attack MGM Resorts shut down several of their computer systems, with the attack affecting all aspects of the group’s business, from the slot machines on the gaming floors not operating, to customers not being able to open bedroom doors with their key cards.

As a result of the news, the share price at close of trading yesterday for MGM Resorts Group fell by nearly 2.5%.

Updating this article on the morning of Wednesday 13th September and Casinomeister forum member Mark_Lottomart is currently in Las Vegas and posted a picture of the check-in queue at the Bellagio, which is operated by the MGM Resorts Group.

Mark also goes on to state that it appears that this attack is affecting all properties owned and operated by MGM Group. For further information visit this thread on the Casinomeister forum.
