Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority to launch online gambling
| By Daniel O'Boyle
The Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority will launch online gambling in the province, through a new agreement between the the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN) and the provincial government.
Under the deal, the FSIN and province will split revenue from the online gambling site – which will include both online casino and sports betting – on a 50/50 basis. The site is expected to launch at some point in 2022.
The site will be managed by the Saskatchewan Gaming Corporation (SaskGaming).
“This new online gaming site will be a safe, regulated and secure platform that will fall under existing responsible gambling practices,” Don Morgan, minister responsible for SaskGaming, said.
