GM / CURTIS STANDING
It was an exciting year for employees and patrons of the Painted Hand
Casino in Yorkton, as they said good-bye to their home of over 12 years.
The move into a new $30M building was made in early March and a
grand re-opening was held for invited guests on March 11th, which
included a performance by country music star Mark Chesnutt.
The 43,000 square foot facility includes a large gaming floor with over 200 slot
machines and 7 live table games. The uniquely sculpted circular gaming floor
includes a deli, bar lounge, fabulous restaurant and multi-function facility, known
as the Parkland Room. Free valet parking and shuttle service have been added to
improve convenience and the overall experience for visitors.
Over the past decade, the Painted Hand Casino has become one of the top
entertainment attractions in east central Saskatchewan. The casino has also
been a large contributor to local events in the Yorkton area including title
sponsor of the 2009 Canada Cup of Curling.
The new modern facility is a joint project with the Yorkton Tribal Council and
is conveniently located across the street from Yorkton’s Gallagher Centre.
“SIGA is a sense of belonging to something worth
sacrificing for; a chance at a new beginning, to
better one’s self and life. It’s being part of a First
Nations business that’s First Nations owned and
run. And that makes me proud to be First Nation.”
