reads a statement released by Harrington Raceway and Casino

Last year in May, Harrington Raceway and Casino announced it joined forces with the leading provider of gambling solutions, International Game Technology (IGT). Through the deal, the company agreed to deliver its leading technology to power the Delaware casino’s operations, delivering next-level player experiences and a unique player reward system.

The gambling venue did not reveal further details regarding the breach. It is also unclear what Harrington Raceway and Casino’s systems were impacted by the disruption or what was the source of the issue. Considering that the venue shut its doors and security experts were called in, it is unclear whether or not personal data belonging to the customers was impacted. Still, considering that the venue reopened for visitors the issue seems to be resolved.

Online users contacted the operator concerned whether their complimentary dollars and other rewards were impacted by the temporary closure. To those queries, the venue responded that “all outstanding December 22 – 30 Slot Dollars will be honored through January 3 – 31, 2023.”
