Palms Resort website disrupted, officials working to restore it


Representatives from the Palms hotel-casino are working to restore the resort’s website after a security breach Tuesday morning.

“We are aware of the disruptions to the Palms Casino website and are working as quickly as possible to determine the cause,” a Palms spokesperson said in a statement emailed Tuesday afternoon. “We have engaged external experts to help us investigate the cause and restore availability to all users as soon as possible.”

Palms officials did not say whether any personal customer information was exposed during the website disruption.

People who tried to access the Palms website on Tuesday received a warning from Google that “visiting this website may harm your computer!”

The company did not provide further details on whether other computer systems were disrupted or how long the site has been inaccessible. The warning message was still visible on its website late Tuesday afternoon.

Owned and operated by the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians in California, the 766-room property was reopened by the tribe in April after the casino had been closed since March 2020 following the coronavirus pandemic.

The 20-year-old Palms was sold by Station Casinos Inc., a subsidiary of Red Rock Resorts, to the tribe in May 2021 for $650 million.
