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 525 slot machines and
the excitement of 11 live table games.
The 47,000 square foot facility offers a large gaming floor, the
North Star restaurant and the award-winning Star Light lounge.
Various well-known artists have found their way to the live stage
at the Northern Lights Casino over the past 15 years.
The casino has undergone a number of renovations to stay new
and modern for the over one million guests who visit each year.
The casino recently completed its parking lot expansion, and
in January 2011, opened the doors to a new 4,500 square foot
addition to the south side of the casino. The expansion holds
203 slot machines. In addition to the casino expansion, major
renovations of the existing casino are also underway. These
renovations include painting the exterior of the building, new
carpet, new interior wall finishes and upgrades to the Starlight
Lounge. With the expansion opening, the existing gaming floor
becomes smoke free and smoking is only allowed in the Starlight
Lounge and in the new enclosed expansion area.
The Prince Albert casino opened in 1996. The casino is one
of Prince Albert’s largest employers with over 440 employees.
