The Northern Lights Casino is one of the primary entertainment
destinations in western Canada. Located in what is known as the gateway
to the north, the casino boasts over 450 slot machines and the excitement
of 11 live table games.
The 42,000 square foot facility offers a large gaming floor, the North Star restaurant
and Star Light lounge. Various well-known artists have found their way to the live stage
at the Northern Lights Casino over the past 13 years.
The Prince Albert casino opened in 1996 and has undergone a number of renovations
in an effort to stay new and modern for its million plus guests who visit each year.
The casino recently expanded its parking lot and made improvements to the exterior
of the building. In 2009/10, a new HVAC system will be installed to improve air quality
in the casino.
The Northern Lights Casino won “Nightclub of the Year” at the 2009 Saskatchewan
Country Music Awards in March. It’s the 3rd consecutive year the casino was presented
with the award.
The casino is one of Prince Albert’s largest employers with over 400 employees.
“SIGA is like one big extended family. We laugh together
and even cry together. It’s a place for belonging; nobody
feels like an outsider. There’s always a helping hand or a
friendly smile to get you through the day. SIGA is more
than a company, it’s a way of life.”
