Saskatchewan Indian
Gaming Authority
The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority and its family of casinos are where
your friends play. The casinos provide exceptional entertainment value through
the excitement of all the latest gaming products in addition to a unique brand
of traditional First Nations hospitality and service.
Visitation and profitability continue to increase at SIGA casinos and as a result the
organization surpassed projections in both visits and financial results. The casinos
welcomed over 3.6M guests while surpassing revenues of $242M in 2008/09. This
past year, SIGA completed its $125M capital reinvestment program, the largest
investment since the inception of the company. This will provide our customers
with an enjoyable facility to visit, while providing our employees with a comfortable
working environment.
The six casinos located across Saskatchewan feature over 1,800 slot machines;
52 live table games; a full line of food and beverage services; and a live
entertainment stage in each facility. SIGA’s intent with each casino is to design
a modern facility that reflects the region, the people and First Nations tradition.
SIGA continues to build and design casinos with features that are rooted in First
Nations culture and natural elements reflecting the area. In other words, each of
our casinos is different and unique.
As a non-profit gaming and entertainment company, all profits are returned to the
people of Saskatchewan. 50% of profits support First Nations communities – 25%
supports local community development and 25% is returned to the Provincial Gross
Revenue fund.
