The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA)
continues to enhance product offerings for its patrons.
Together six casino sites now feature a total of 2,120 slot
machines and 56 table games. This represents an increase
of 125 slot machines.
Through a partnership with the Saskatchewan Roughriders,
SIGA launched the new Rider Nation Progressive Jackpot.
This progressive must hit by $100,000 and continues to
demonstrate a commitment to give players more of what
they are looking for with bigger wins and the excitement
that comes with these life-changing awards.
A number of upgrades were conducted across the SIGA
casino sites to enhance the customer experience. New
High Limit rooms were opened in the Bear Claw Casino
(BCC), Dakota Dunes Casino (DDC) and the Painted
Hand Casino (PHC); Gold Eagle Casino (GEC) featuring
a new smoking room; new ticket redemption kiosks; and
the purchase of over 400 new slot machines. SIGA led the
way in Saskatchewan gaming by offering handheld Live
Game products and introducing Squeeze EZ Baccarat and
Double Deck Blackjack.
ENTERTAINMENT AND EVENTS
SIGA hosted fabulous entertainment events this year,
bringing excited visitors into the casinos to attend sold
out shows such as: Salt-N-Pepa, Theory of a Deadman,
Big Sugar, the Irish Rovers and Mark Chesnutt, to name
An annual VIP event was held on March 19th at the
DDC. SIGA’s top VIP players were transported to DDC
from around the province and they enjoyed a fantastic
dinner prepared by SIGA’s six executive chefs. Guests
were surprised with an exclusive draw for $20,000 in
celebration of SIGA’s 20 years of operation.
SIGA casinos offer an array of tribute artists along
with dinner and variety shows throughout the year.
Performances such as comedian Tom Green, The
Amazing Kreskin and UFC Champion Randy Couture
excited audiences along with musical tributes to
Roy Orbison, Rod Stewart, Patsy Cline and Elvis Presley.
FOOD, BEVERAGE AND HOTEL
This past year saw the renewal of company-wide uniforms
for our employees and the creation of new cocktail menus
which were implemented in 2016. All casinos except
Northern Lights will also have catering and event software
implemented to better serve our guests in all our event
centres this year.
SIGA partnered with Flying Dust First Nation to purchase
organic, locally grown potatoes for all of our casinos. The
potatoes are grown by the Flying Dust Market Garden
which has 171 acres of certified organic land producing
30 different varieties of vegetables and fruit. And then
there was the introduction of organically grown herbs and
lettuces at DDC in April 2016. The tower gardens are
located just outside the restaurant entrance, providing
sustainable herbs for their restaurant menu. Future
expansion to other casinos is being considered.
DDC introduced four phone charging stations that were
placed on the gaming floor to offer our guests the security
and convenience of keeping their phone charged while
they play. DDC has relocated their guest service desk
closer to the entrance of the casino and will be utilizing
this space to open a new Tim Hortons franchise in July
of 2016. In May of 2016, DDC opened a new “Charley
Biggs” fried chicken franchise, the first one in the province
GEC’s smoking room expansion opened along with a new
event room located just off the gaming floor. This room
can accommodate moderate-sized meetings, parties and
receptions. There is also a new food service staging room
so the Food and Beverage department can enhance the
meal service for our guests in their event centre.
