However, back in September, the company fell prey to a cyberattack.
In response to the attack, Caesars incurred expenses associated with addressing, resolving, and investigating the situation.
At the time, however, Caesars said that it expected no material impact on its Q3 financial results.
Instead, the group said it remained optimistic that its cybersecurity insurance and potential indemnification claims against third parties would help mitigate any potential financial consequences.
Caesars did not disclose any additional details about the incident.
Meanwhile, Caesars president and COO Anthony Carano said the group is looking forward to a strong finish to 2023.
“Consumer demand remains strong, and our capital projects are winding down. We will continue to remain focused on operating cost efficiencies, harvesting returns on project capital and driving long-term EBITDA growth.”
