The Marina Bay Sands (MBS) casino resort has been asked by the Gambling Regulatory Authority (GRA) of Singapore to “conduct further investigations on its casino loyalty program,” a statement sent to GGRAsia on Wednesday said.
The statement said, “GRA is aware of the cyber incident involving MBS’s non-casino loyalty program members.” MBS has been asked by GRA to look into its casino reward program further.
A Marina Bay Sands spokesman revealed to GGRAsia on Tuesday that last month, someone “unauthorized” to do so gained access to a data bank including 665,000 customers‘ names, phone numbers, and email addresses.
The statement from the establishment reads, “We do not believe that membership data from our casino rewards program was affected.”
The information that was obtained from the data bank was designated for “non-casino rewards program members.”
It was also mentioned by a Marina Bay Sands spokesperson that the business “has no evidence to date that the unauthorized third party has misused the data to cause harm to customers.”
One half of Singapore’s casino duopoly, Marina Bay Sands is run by a Las Vegas Sands Corp. affiliate operating in the US. The latter is also Sands China Ltd.’s parent business, which runs casinos in Macau.
