Canada’s Saskatchewan province will roll out its first and only online gambling site from Thursday, Nov. 3rd.
The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority will be the official operator of the site, PlayNow.com, as per an accord with state gaming corp. Sask Gaming.
The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN) and the Province entered into an innovative agreement in September 2021, which enabled SIGA to bring PlayNow.com to Saskatchewan. The agreement is the first of its kind in Canada and further strengthens the partnership between the FSIN and the Province in Saskatchewan’s gaming sector.
“This historical partnership is the first of its kind, with a First Nations operator for online gaming with revenue sharing between First Nations and the Province,” said FSIN Chief Bobby Cameron. “This will provide many economic benefits to the residents of the province and our First Nations communities.”
SaskGaming President and CEO Susan Flett said the launch timing coincides with Saskatchewan hosting this year’s Grey Cup in November.
“The rollout of online gaming and single event sports betting opens up new casino entertainment options for residents,” she said.
Additionally, PlayNow.com, has partnered with the Saskatchewan Roughriders, in a sponsorship agreement for PlayNow.com. The Riders will be featuring the PlayNow.com logo on their jerseys, starting at the home game against the Calgary Stampeders on Saturday, October 22, along with other stadium activations, promoting the new online gaming and sports betting site, coming to Saskatchewan.
Saskatchewan residents, ages 19 and older, can now pre-register to play by visiting PlayNow.com.
