The cyberattack was first detected on April 16, and Gateway announced the closure of its Ontario casinos the following day.

The company said it would reopen facilities in a phased approach and opened Georgian Downs in Innisfil Saturday, followed by casinos in Wasaga Beach, London, Woodstock, Clinton, Hanover, and Chatham.

Gateway said its facilities in Point Edward and Sarnia would reopen Wednesday evening. Still, there is no date set for when Casino Rama will welcome back customers to its gaming floor.
