Located along the Yellowhead Highway in North Battleford, Gold Eagle
opened its doors in March 1996 and is one of the Battlefords areas
largest employers, employing 360 local residents.
The 39,000 square feet of floor space includes a large gaming floor, featuring:
260 slot machines, 10 live table games, restaurant (Kihiw Restaurant) and
multi-purpose room (Gold Ridge Centre).
The Gold Ridge Centre continues to play a major role in the casino’s ongoing
success, lending space for meetings, weddings, entertainment/shows, various
promotions, and conferences. This venue has hosted a variety of entertainment
acts in the past including Canadian rockers April Wine and Prism.
Improvements through SIGA’s reinvestment program are ongoing at the casino.
Improvements to the exterior of the building will continue including new awnings

HVAC unit to improve air quality at the casino will be installed; new shuttle bus
service will be added and a deli will be added to the gaming floor.

North Battleford.

respect and knowledge – created by
