Whitecap Dakota First Nation
GARY DANIELS, GM
Dakota Dunes Casino is SIGA’s largest casino
employing 470 people. The $60M casino
opened in August 2007 and is located on
the Whitecap Dakota First Nation, 20 kilometres
south of Saskatoon.
The 86,500 square foot entertainment facility
which was recognized for its award winning design,
offers the excitement of 575 slot machines, 18
live table games and a Touchbet Roulette game
featuring 10 stations. The casino also provides
the convenience of a deli, a restaurant and a
fully functional multi-purpose Tatanka Tipi room.
Dakota Dunes Casino has hosted a variety of
conferences and performances over the past year
including Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers’, Ian
Tyson’s Farewell Tour, Terry Clark and Matt Dusk to
name a few.
In 2011, Dakota Dunes Casino marked the grand
opening of the newly renovated and expanded
smoking room. The 5,000 square foot $3M
expansion addressed an increased demand in
the casino, and allowed 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.
