This $30M, 43,000 square foot facility includes a large gaming
floor with 220 slot machines and seven live table games, with
a roulette table to be included in the near future. The uniquely
sculpted circular gaming floor includes a wide open gaming
floor with two separate smoking rooms, a bar lounge and the
Legends Restaurant. Painted Hand Casino (PHC) is capable of
hosting a wide variety of events in a multi-functioning facility
known as the Parkland Room. The casino has hosted a variety
of dinner shows and performances including Counting Coup
Rough Stock Rodeo, Randy Travis VIP event, Clint Black, Jo
Dee Messina, Terri Clark, and other events such as National
Aboriginal Day Celebrations, Business Appreciation meet
and greets, local business Christmas parties, and monthly
birthday parties. In total, PHC has over 50 dinner shows
and performances annually.
The Painted Hand Casino is one of Yorkton’s largest employers,
with over 210 local employees.
PHC celebrates employee development with over 90% of
PHC employees achieving their core training in hospitality and
customer service. SIGA sponsors a GED program with on-site
classes taking place for PHC employees to get their Grade
12 diploma. PHC has supported employees who have taken
the initiative to continue their post-secondary education by
accommodating their work schedule so it does not interfere
with their class schedule. We have also supported and assisted
employees to obtain their Red Seal certifications as well as
supported others in their pursuit of professional designations
and trade journeyperson status. By supporting employee
development PHC and SIGA benefit by having knowledgeable
employees who can respond confidently to our customer needs.
The Painted Hand Casino volunteers have made a
positive impact in many local organizations and charities.
PHC has volunteered with Habitat for Humanity on two
housing projects. Employees have assisted with this
worthy cause by assisting with the building of fencing
as well as landscaping. To further assist the Habitat for
Humanity, the PHC Volunteer Committee held a BBQ
with all proceeds donated to the Habitat for Humanity.
The Volunteer Committee is also involved with the Soup
Haven, which is an organization that provides a free meal
to Yorkton citizens. In 2013-2014, PHC volunteers made
and served a hot supper to over 150 people.
