A “cyber security issue” at MGM Resorts has forced the famed hotel and casino company to shut down many of its systems, according to a statement the company posted to X (formerly Twitter) just before noon ET. MGM replaced its homepage with a message apologizing for the site outage and a list of phone numbers for concierges at various locations such as the Aria, The Cosmopolitan, Mandalay Bay, Bellagio, New York-New York and Vdara.
The problem isn’t limited to MGM’s Las Vegas locations. NBC 10 News in Philadelphia reports that MGM’s Borgata Hotel in Atlantic City was also hit by the attack, although hotel representatives did not say how. MGM Grand Detroit Casino is also affected, reports Play Michiganwith an X user to post that the casino is “running all the games,” but that MGM’s digital keys and rewards program are not working.
ABC 13 News in Las Vegas confirms that the FBI is currently investigating and has been in contact with MGM since Sunday. The outlet reports that hotel guests could not access ATMs, purchase food or use their digital room keys.
