Lloydminster First Nation Casino Review
Update: On Monday, August 22, at a special legislative assembly session, the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN) voted to permit its Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA) operator to expand into the border city of Lloydminster for the purposes of operating the yet-to-be-named gambling establishment.
Last year, the FSIN voted in favor of a casino project worth $20 million in Lloydminster, Canada. Following that, a report stated ground could possibly be broken for the casino a month later, in June. Here we are almost a year later and we have news that the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority (SLGA) has granted conditional approval for the new venue.
The development would be in both Saskatchewan and Alberta because the city of Lloydminster is unique in that it has the unusual geographic distinction of straddling the provincial border between both provinces. Plans for the Saskatchewan side of the city would include the casino, which would become the focal point of the destination venue and would include approximately 250 gaming machines and around six to eight gaming tables. A 120-room hotel and a restaurant and convenience store could also be in the cards.
The new gaming venue in Lloydminster would join the casinos in Prince Albert, North Battleford, Yorkton, Swift Current, south of Saskatoon, and on the White Bear First Nation near Carlyle, already run by the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority.
According to the SIGA, the venue could serve up to 1,500 visitors a day and could open by the end of 2017.

Gaming at Lloydminster First Nation Casino
Although each of their casinos is different and unique, the actual gaming on offer here should be similar to other SIGA casinos of the same size. As approval and opening day draw nearer will will update this listing with more details.
