Las Vegas hotels, among others, have been warned of cyberattacks, according to a Dec. 20 Associated Press report. Affinity Gaming, a Las Vegas company that owns casinos in several states including Nevada says it was the victim of credit and debit card cyberattacks at 11 sites.
The cyberattacks affected under 300,000 cardholders, according to the company’s lawyer. While the system is now reportedly secure, Affinity Gaming recommended that customers that visited its hotels and casinos between March and October should check their cards for fraudulent activity.
“Affinity regrets any inconvenience this incident may cause and has established a confidential, toll-free inquiry line to assist its customers,” the company announced on Friday.
Boston.com reports that Affinity Gaming owns the Silver Sevens Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Other Nevada owned entities include Rail City Casino in Sparks; and Buffalo Bill’s Resort & Casino, Primm Valley Resort & Casino, and Whiskey Pete’s Hotel & Casino, in Primm.
