    I was at the Bellagio yesterday and their computers crashed at about 12:45 p.m. None of the machines would give tickets and almost all had to be hand pays.

    The checkin and Checkout all had to be done by hand. I just got the email receipt at noon today. They were saying is was effecting all MGM properties.
    I was there until 3:45 p.m. and it was a nighmare. Had to leave, but still not fixed by then.

    Anyone know anything about this? I will post more about it in my trip report I will have up tomorrow.

    Wasn't there some massive problem with MGM upgrading their computers during a big weekend last year? This story seems vaguely familiar

    Nonsense. Everyone knows the Greco can not be beaten.

    Apparently it isn't all that rare for computers to crash.

    I had this happen at the Palazzo once.

    This is one of the reasons I don't let my credits get too high before I cash out.

    At least two major crashes that impacted all of MGM in the past year or so. Have heard of some smaller ones at individual CET properties - Flamingo in particular, but only hotel at that point.

    The one at MGM a year or so ago went on for the better part of a day and into the next. It was terrible.
