MGM Resorts ‘Cybersecurity Issue’ Leads to Shut Down of Major Systems
MGM Resorts ‘Cybersecurity Issue’ Leads to Shut Down of Major SystemsSeptember 11, 2023On September 11, there was a report of systemwide outage at Bellagio prompting MGM Resorts to shut down several systems across all of its Vegas resorts including use of credit cards, online payments at restaurants, website bookings, and remote room keys. Only cash payments were accepted in restaurants and the MGM Resorts website also went down: MGM released a statement on the issue: “MGM Resorts recently identified a cybersecurity issue affecting some of the Company’s systems. Promptly after detecting the issue, we quickly began an investigation with assistance from leading external cybersecurity experts.” “We also notified law enforcement and took prompt action to protect our systems and data, including shutting down certain systems. Our investigation is ongoing, and we are working diligently to determine the nature and scope of the matter.” In a follow up statement on 11th Monday 9 pm, MGM stated: “As an update to our previous statement, our resorts, including dining, entertainment and gaming are currently operational, and continue to deliver the experiences for which MGM is known. Our guests remain able to access their hotel rooms and our Front Desk staff is ready to assist our guests as needed. We appreciate your patience.”

Bellagio Cuts Down Trees To Make Room For F1 Grandstand
Bellagio Cuts Down Trees To Make Room For F1 GrandstandSeptember 10, 2023
Bellagio Las Vegas is cutting down trees to accommodate the construction of an F1 grandstand in preparation for the November 16th – 18th, 2023 Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix.
The Bellagio F1 grandstand is an MGM Resort venture in association with Formula 1 that will see the development of a tall and long grandstand atop the Bellagio Lake in front of Bellagio Las Vegas.
This development will obscure the beautiful lake and hinder visitors from enjoying a great view of the Bellagio fountains – a beloved free show in Las Vegas.
Not only that, trees that have stood in front of the hotel for decades will also be removed for the grandstand construction.
Initially, there was hope that these 25+ year-old trees would be relocated. In an earlier statement, MGM Resorts stated that the trees, which have for so long provided shade to buskers in the Vegas heat, would be ‘temporarily and safely removed.’
They even marked the tree locations with ‘X’ marks, indicating they were marked for relocation. However, they have gone against their word since it has now been confirmed that they will permanently cut down the trees in front of the Bellagio fountains.
In a September 7, 2023 statement, MGM Resorts responded with the following comment: “This work is part of preparations for the Las Vegas Grand Prix and our efforts to provide the best possible experience through improved visibility, mobility, and pedestrian access and safety.”
Additionally, MGM Resorts stated that the removed trees would be recycled into woodchips for local parks.
This is one of many changes expected to happen to the Las Vegas landscape in the coming months and maybe years of hosting Formula 1. Frustration among many locals is apparent; many blame the public officials for underestimating the disruption F1 might cause to the entertainment City.
Experts have projected that the Formula 1 race will inject $1.3 billion into the Las Vegas economy. However, skepticism abounds regarding the accuracy of this estimate, and the community is concerned about the many inconveniences that may follow.
Currently, in terms of the Bellagio trees, the locals hope that when new trees are planted after the grandstand is dismantled, their roots will be contained, facilitating their annual removal and replacement.

2023 WSOP Winner Wins Record-Breaking $12.1M Prize
2023 WSOP Winner Wins Record-Breaking $12.1M PrizeJuly 19, 2023
Daniel Weinman from Atlanta, Georgia won a record-breaking $12,000,000 prize at the 2023 World Series of Poker (WSOP), taking home the largest payout in Main Event history.
By outlasting a field of 10,043 players, Weinman took on fellow American Steven Jones in a final hand that lasted a surprisingly short nine minutes. The final table took just 164 hands for Weinman to win, much quicker than most people expected.
For a minute it felt like Jones had the upper hand by going all-in with Jack-eight. However, Weinman called his bluff and went in with his greater King-Jack, sealing the historical win for the 35-year-old.
Weinman barely made it to the final table when he almost lost on Day 8 of the WSOP competition. He managed to get a pivotal clutch two-outer that saved his spot and assured his entry into the history books.
Even though it was a disappointing loss for Jones, he went home with $6.5 million in second place, followed by Adam Walton who was the third finalist with $4 million.
Weinman is the 2023 Main Event Champion making him the first American to win the tournament since John Cynn in 2018.
2023 WSOP Main Event Final Table Results:
Player Country Winning Prize 1 Daniel Weinman United States $12,100,000 2 Steven Jones United States $6,500,000 3 Adam Walton United States $4,000,000 4 Jan-Peter Jachman Germany $3,000,000 5 Ruslan Prydryk Ukraine $2,400,000 6 Dean Hutchison United Kingdom $1,850,000 7 Toby Lewis United Kingdom $1,425,000 8 Juan Maceiras Spain $1,125,000 9 Daniel Holzner Italy $900,000

Nevada to give $380 million to build the Oakland A’s Stadium
Nevada to give $380 million to build the Oakland A’s StadiumMay 30, 2023
In a bill introduced on Friday, May 26, 2023 in the Nevada Legislature, Oakland Athletics stand to receive $380 million from Nevada for the construction of their potential $1.5 billion stadium on the Las Vegas Strip featuring a retractable roof.
The team has agreed to use land on the southern end of the Las Vegas Strip, currently occupied by the Tropicana Las Vegas casino resort.
The funding would come from $180 million in transferable tax credits from the state, $120 million in county bonds, and $25 million from Clark County for infrastructure costs.
The rendering of the baseball stadium shows that it would have a seating capacity of 30,000, making it the smallest in Major League Baseball stadium. Las Vegas will become the smallest TV market in the MLB with just three major professional sports franchise.
Despite the small size, Las Vegas and the team are hopeful of pulling many tourists among the 40 million who visit the city each year.
The proposed bill also includes the creation of a homelessness prevention and assistance fund in coordination with MLB and the Nevada Resort Association.
The Clark County Board of Commissioners would manage the funds for services such as emergency rental and utility assistance, job training, and rehabilitation and counseling services for individuals experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
The lease agreement with the Las Vegas Stadium Authority would be subject to renewal after 30 years.
However, the proposal faces uncertainty in the Nevada Legislature as Democratic leaders have indicated that financing bills, including for the Athletics, may not proceed if Republican Governor Joe Lombardo vetoes budget bills.
The bill does not involve direct tax increases and can move forward with a simple majority vote in the Senate and Assembly.
The legislative leadership in Nevada is currently reviewing the proposal and seeking input from interested parties before making any commitments. The decision on the Oakland A’s move to Las Vegas could be voted on when MLB owners meet in June.
