Whitecap Dakota First Nation
Gary Daniels, GM
The magnificent $60M casino opened in August 2007 and is
SIGA’s largest casino, employing over 500 people. The casino
is located on the Whitecap Dakota First Nation, 20 kilometers
south of Saskatoon, and was a finalist for best casino design
at the National Gaming Conference in Las Vegas in 2008.
The 80,000 square foot entertainment facility offers the
excitement of 585 slot machines, 14 live table games and,
new for this year, a Touchbet Roulette game featuring 10
stations. The casino also provides the convenience of a deli
and restaurant to whet the appetite and a fully functional
multi-purpose Tatanka Tipi room which has hosted a variety of
conferences and performances. Dionne Warwick, Tom Cochrane,
and Nitty Gritty Dirt Band are just a few of the acts that have
played the venue.
In March 2011, a leather cutting ceremony was held at Dakota
Dunes Casino to mark the grand opening of the newly renovated
and expanded smoking room. The 5,000 square foot $3M
expansion addresses an increased demand in the casino,
and allows us to improve the air quality for our patrons and
our employees. The project involved expanding the gaming floor,
as well as adding a dedicated washroom and a full service bar.
