In partnership with the File Hills Qu’Appelle Tribal Council, SIGA entered its
sixth and newest market late in 2008. The casino overcame early recruitment
challenges to open on time and within budget.
The $35M casino opened to the public on December 29th in Swift Current.
This new modern casino, with circular gaming floor, offers 168 slot machines,
8 live table games and a delicious buffet in Horizons Restaurant. Valet parking
and shuttle service is also available for customers. The casino is conveniently
located along the Trans Canada Highway, where over a million cars pass
through annually.
In partnership with the community, the Living Sky Casino opened the state-
of-the-art performing arts and entertainment centre known as “Sky Centre”
in February 2009. The casino played host to the legendary Wayne Newton
as part of its official grand opening ceremonies. The Sky Centre has been
a welcome addition and has been well received by the community.
The Living Sky casino employs over 270 local people in Swift Current
and has become one of the city’s largest employers. Casino staff have
immersed themselves in the community, assisting with local events
and organizations.
