Painted Hand Casino Rebuild – Yorkton Tribal Council
Construction on the new $30M Painted Hand Casino began in 2007. The new Painted Hand
Casino, a joint partnership with the Yorkton Tribal Council, will include a multi-purpose facility
for shows and conferences, a full-service restaurant, snack bar, bus port, and a parking lot for
200 vehicles.
The new location is ideal. Situated on Kahkewistahaw First Nation land in Yorkton, the site is
off the old Broadway Mall on the west end of the city. Two major highways pass by the area,
offering plenty of parking and numerous nearby amenities including an arena, curling rink,
swimming pool, exhibition grounds and a golf course.
General Description:
• 43,000 square feet
• Entertainment centre
• Projected 250 slot machines
• Targeted opening date: February 2009
• Projected 10 live table games
Reinvestment – existing properties
The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority has embarked on a reinvestment program to
ensure the casinos remain up to date and attractive to our patrons and employees.
Some of the initiatives include:
• New Marquis for all casinos
• Storage facilities
• Exterior renovations and front canopies
• Addition of multi-purpose facilities
• Expanded parking lots
The building incorporates many of the
natural elements of Mother Earth.
