Our Operations
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 customer 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 visitor
numbers and financial results. The casinos welcomed
over four million guests while surpassing revenues
of $260M in 2012/2013 for the sixth 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 are offering 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 has built and designed casinos with features
that are rooted in First Nations culture with natural
elements reflecting the area where they are located.
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.
