Jackpot247 Suffers Data Breach

Betsson subsidiary Jackpot247 has suffered a serious breach of its database this week, possibly exposing sensitive player information to hackers.

The breach was first reported by Casino Listings user Kelsie1978 (thanks Kelsie!), who shared a screenshot of the email she got from the site. To the casino's credit, they sent out an email to players as soon as they were made aware of the breach, so it looks like they're handling the situation responsibly.

Players who have accounts at Jackpot247 are urged to change their password and to keep a close eye on their bank accounts. You should also be aware of emails coming from Jackpot247, as there's a chance hackers may try to scam you into resetting your password. If you encounter anything that looks suspicious, reach out directly to Jackpot247's customer support team for guidance.

Interestingly enough I got the same email from Jackpot247 titled Security Notice. But the first line of the email named Vernons as the casino infiltrated.
