Gateway Casinos London reopens after cyber attack

Two weeks after a ransomware attack forced the sudden closure of Gateway Casinos across Ontario, the company has reopened its London operation.

Gateway Casinos and Entertainment began welcoming customers back inside the casino at the Western Fair District at noon on Monday.

“Both slots and table games will be available for customers to enjoy along with the Getaway Restaurant,” the company said in a statement posted to social media.

The London location is the second of Gateway’s casinos to reopen as part of a phased approach. On Saturday, the Innisfil site near Barrie was reopened. Cascades Casino in Chatham, Starlight Casino in Point Edward, Gateway Casinos in Sarnia, Woodstock, and Clinton, and Playtime Casino in Hanover all remain closed.

“We will continue to reopen our businesses in Ontario over the coming days,” Gateway said.

A more detailed reopening schedule has not been provided.

Gateway was forced to halt its operations on April 16 after what the company called a “cyber security incident” was detected. Third-party cyber professionals have been working ever since to restore the casino IT systems. The company previously stated that none of its customers’ personal data appeared to have been compromised in the breach, but it was “notifying relevant privacy officials and gaming regulators” of the incident.
