Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority casinos
provide exceptional entertainment value through
the excitement of all the latest gaming products
in addition to a unique brand of traditional First
Nations hospitality and service.
Visitation increased once again this year at SIGA
casinos, and as a result of this and an organization-
wide focus on improving efficiency and managing
cost, the organization met projections in both
visits and financial results. The casinos welcomed
over 4.2M guests while surpassing revenues of
$60M in 2011/2012 for the fifth consecutive
year. This past year, SIGA continued to reinvest
in its existing properties, including expansions at
Dakota Dunes and Northern Lights Casinos. These
investments ensure we provide our customers
with an enjoyable facility to visit, while providing
our employees with a comfortable working
environment.
The six casinos located across Saskatchewan
feature 1,870 slot machines, 52 live table games,
a full line of food and beverage services, and a live
entertainment stage in each facility. SIGA’s intent
with each casino is to design a modern facility that
reflects the region, the people and First Nations
tradition.
SIGA continues to build and design casinos with
features that are rooted in First Nations culture and
natural elements reflecting the area. Each of our
casinos is different and unique.
As a non-profit gaming and entertainment
company, all profits are returned to the people
of Saskatchewan. 50% of profits support First
Nations communities, 25% supports local
community development and 25% is returned
to the Provincial Gross Revenue Fund.
