Harrington Raceway & Casino "Technical Difficulties"

4-day stoppage
After a week of “technical problems,” Delaware’s Harrington Raceway & Casino reopened on Saturday for New Year’s Eve.

According to Delaware Online, Harrington Raceway CEO Patti Key informed Delaware Lottery Director Helene Keeley at 12 p.m. on Tuesday, December 27 that the casino would close due to technology issues.

The casino announced it Thursday afternoon.

“Harrington Raceway, Inc. is now experiencing technical challenges that are creating a temporary disruption to gaming and computer systems,” the statement said. We’re carefully assessing the disruption’s impact on our systems and restoring full operation as soon as feasible. Cybersecurity experts are working on this issue.

Many gamblers made long trips to Harrington without realizing the casino was closed.

“When I arrived and noticed the parking lot was deserted, I knew I was in trouble,” Richard Sies told WBOC. Delaware Park, two and a half hours away, is my choice.

Uncommunicativeness raises eyebrows.
Harrington Raceway’s Facebook comments were mostly irate about the casino’s announcement delay. Some wondered if “cyber security specialists” were necessary to protect their data.

The casino opened on time, so others could keep their New Year’s Eve plans.

Slot dollars collected December 22-30 will be redeemed January 3–31, the casino said on Facebook. They were excellent for the weekend, but they’re still available throughout the month. Since Harrington is closer than Las Vegas, most slot machine users can make the two-hour trip.

“Disruption to games and computer systems” is unidentified. According to Delaware Online, the Delaware Division of Gaming Enforcement does not investigate crime. Systemic issues prevented the casino from running normally.
