Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority temporarily closues its casinos

16 March 2020

The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority announced that it will close all of its casinos for two weeks. The original announcement of a two week closure on the organization's website is below.

"The health and safety of our employees, guests and community members is our top priority. Based on recommendations from government and public health officials on the COVID-19 pandemic, SIGA’s Board and leadership made the decision to temporarily suspend all operations at SIGA Casinos for two weeks on March 16, 2020.

On March 18, Premier Moe declared a state of emergency for the province and subsequently ordered all gyms, fitness centres, casinos and bingo halls to close until further notice.

These temporary closures came into effect at the end of the gaming day March 16, 2020 at all SIGA Casinos in Saskatchewan.

This decision is in the best interest of our employees, guests and community members’ health and safety, and the ongoing efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19. It is also in alignment with SaskGaming Casinos Regina and Moose Jaw, and other Canadian jurisdictions, and will help ensure our employees can focus on staying healthy and taking care of their families.

We want to assure you that we are doing everything we can to effectively manage this situation as it evolves and protect our team members, guests, and local communities. We appreciate your understanding and patience as we continue to deal with this unprecedented event, and we look forward to welcoming you to our casinos again when it is safe to do so.

Please refer to this page for the most recent updates on these temporary closures.

SIGA Casinos thank you for your ongoing patronage and loyalty."
