Casino Data Breach Compensation Claims

Casinos store a large amount of personal data which, if compromised, could leave you in an extremely vulnerable position. If your information has been exposed in a casino data breach, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

Casinos in the UK, just like any other organisation, are obligated to abide by the rules set out by the Data Protection Act and UK GDPR. This includes securing the data they have in their possession and preventing it from falling into the wrong hands – be this through individual negligence, or poor security measures.

If a casino fails to keep your data secure, or they misuse the data it stores in any way, this is likely to constitute a casino data breach. If this is the case, you may be able to claim compensation. A casino data breach could occur where:

  • Inaccurate information is stored
  • Data is stored for longer than necessary
  • Private information is public
  • A cyber-attack or ransomware exposes data
  • Data is used outside of its intended purpose

An example of a major casino data breach that our data breach solicitors have advised on involved Grosvenor Casinos, who suffered a cyber-attack which affected over 1000 members.

At Hayes Connor, our casino data breach claims specialists understand just how stressful and daunting it can be to learn that you are the victim of a data breach. No matter what sort of data has been exposed, you will understandably have plenty of concerns about what might happen next and whether you will have any further issues in the future.

Casino data breach FAQs

If an organisation, such as a casino, experiences a data breach, and your information and consequently been exposed, they have a legal obligation to inform you that this is the case. From our experience, we have found that many companies fail to send out this notification as promptly as they should, or the relevant message can be missed by landing in a spam folder.

It is often that first time victims of data breaches learn that their information has been compromised when the responsible organisation is penalised by the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).

If you have reason to believe that your data has been compromised in a casino data breach, but you are not sure how to find out for certain, this is something our data breach solicitors can help you with.

Yes. Once a casino is aware that they have suffered a data breach, they are legally required to report it to the ICO within 72 hours. The casino should also inform individuals who have been affected if the data leaked could lead to one or more of the following issues:

  • Financial loss
  • Identity theft or fraud
  • Damage to reputation
  • Discrimination

You are also able to self-report an issue to the ICO as someone affected by a casino data breach if the casino has not done so themselves. Failing that, you can contact a data breach solicitors directly to make a claim for compensation.

As standard, you will typically have six years to make a casino data breach claim. This time limit is counted from the data you were first aware that a data breach took place, or when you could have reasonably been aware. This is normally when the organisation contacted you to inform you of the breach.

There are a number of ways in which a casino data breach can take place, resulting in the loss of your data. For example, a casino data breach may occur where:

  • An employee makes a human-error (such as emailing the wrong person)
  • Devices are stolen or lost
  • The casino is subject to a cyber-attack

When instructed, our data breach experts would start by contacting the casino on your behalf, using any findings from ICO investigations to assist.

Our data breach solicitors will then proceed to prove that a data breach has occurred and confirm how it has affected both you and your loved ones, using this to place a value on the damages available for your claim.

Casino data breaches can often be resolved with the need for court proceedings. Instead, a negotiated settlement can be agreed.

However, if a settlement cannot be reached, bringing forward a court case may be the only way to secure the compensation you are owed.

You will likely be able to make a casino data breach if there has been a failure to secure your personal data. This is regardless of whether any financial data has been stolen, or you have suffered a direct financial loss due to the breach. That being said, where you have experienced financial harm, it may be possible to make a more significant case.

Financial losses

A casino data breach could lead to both financial and/or identity theft. The results of these can be devastating, as criminals who access this information may be able to set up fraudulent bank accounts or access your existing accounts.


Even where you have no lost out financially after a casino data breach, this does not necessarily mean that no harm has been done. Being the victim of a personal data breach is an incredibly distressing ordeal, which is sure to leave you worried and feeling vulnerable about your safety.

Being the victim of such a crime will take its toll, both physically and mentally. Of course, everyone is bound to react differently to a data breach, but some people are likely to feel various effects, such as a lack of sleep, feeling ill, unsettled or confused. These effects can also then affect your friends, family and job.
