Data Breach Hits 11 Casinos

Data Breach Hits 11 Casinos

Affinity Gaming operates a number of casinos in four different states, and the company has announced another data breach that could affect many of its loyal patrons. Affinity Gaming said they have found evidence of a hack on the casino's debit and credit card system for non-gaming purchases, spanning across 11 locations.

While the breach did not impact money spent directly on gambling, it did affect customers who paid for other items and services at casino resort facilities. Hotel rooms, food and drinks are all processed through this system.

In December, Affinity Gaming announced that its card processing system had been infected with malware which may have compromised card data from customers.

The company operates 11 casinos in Nevada, Colorado, Iowa and Missouri.

This data breach is expected to have occurred between December 2013 and April 2014. Affinity Gaming is now encouraging its visitors to take the steps necessary to protect their identities after the hack. In addition, the company is taking steps to secure its payment system.

"Our customers are our top priority, and we can assure them we are working tirelessly, using best-in-class experts to protect our IT system and their information," said David Ross, CEO of Affinity. "We deeply regret any inconvenience this incident may cause and are ensuring our customers have the information they need to address any concerns."

If you recently visited a casino owned by this company, keep an eye on your credit accounts to catch any unauthorized charges that may have been processed.
