MGM Resorts Investigating Cybersecurity Issue With Assistance From FBI, ‘Leading Experts’

MGM Resorts International disclosed a continuing cybersecurity issue affecting some systems across the corporation, including its Atlantic City resort.

Since Sunday evening, guests and employees at the Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa have been unable to access core electronic-based systems such as payment processing or MGM Rewards. According to several casino sources, virtually little is known regarding the nature or scope of the problem.

MGM Begins an Inquiry with the Assistance of ‘Cybersecurity Professionals.’

The MGM Resorts website is “currently unavailable,” and the MGM Rewards app is “undergoing maintenance.” Services conducted through either platform, such as digital room keys or reservations for hotels with Borgata Atlantic City, were not working as of Monday afternoon.

On Monday morning, the Las Vegas-based firm posted a statement on X (previously Twitter) stating that it “promptly” launched an inquiry “with assistance from prominent external cybersecurity experts.”

MGM also notified authorities and “took prompt action for safeguarding our systems and data, involving shutting down certain systems.”


The Issue has No Effect on NJ Online Casinos or Sportsbooks

The cybersecurity issue does not affect BetMGM Online Casino NJ or BetMGM Sportsbook NJ in New Jersey.

MGM Resorts and Entain plc jointly own BetMGM. Borgata’s branded Borgata Online Casino NJ and Borgata Sportsbook NJ sites are unaffected as well. According to rumors, the FBI is now collaborating with MGM as the inquiry progresses.
