Due to a cyberattack, several significant hotels in Las Vegas, including the Bellagio, had malfunctioning door locks, broken slot machines, and other issues on Monday.
The attack against MGM Resorts International hotels, which happened early on Monday, is being looked into, according to the FBI. According to the business, “it took prompt action to protect our system and data, including shutting down certain systems.”
MGM stated in a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, that “our investigation is ongoing and we are working diligently to determine the nature and scope of the matter.”
Although the corporation refused to give any information about what was impacted, it seemed to impair a number of important hotel systems.
MGM announced that its “casino gaming floors” were open later that night. The business issued a statement saying, “We continue to work diligently to remedy this issue.
According Vegas ABC affiliate KTNV, Bellagio visitors were unable to utilize their digital room keys, charge anything to their rooms, or make bookings.
Several gambling machines at the Aria casino also looked to be inoperable, according to KTNV.
Additionally unavailable was the MGM International website, which prohibited online reservations. Customers were routed to their hotel’s phone numbers via the website for assistance.
