The outage affected company emails, reservations, room keys and casino machines.
The company said in a statement: “MGM Resorts recently identified a cybersecurity issue affecting some of the company’s systems. Immediately after detecting the issue, we quickly launched an investigation with the help of leading external cybersecurity experts.
