Saskatchewan’s first legal, regulated online gaming platform is now live.

The gaming site called PlayNow.com launched Thursday morning and is managed by SaskGaming, operated by the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA), regulated by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority and uses the British Columbia Lottery Corporation’s (BCLC) PlayNow.com platform.

According to a news release, there are more than 500 casino games and a full suite of sports betting options, and the site generates profits in Saskatchewan that support people across the province. The gaming site is deemed to be safe, secure online casino gaming, sports betting and entertainment in Saskatchewan.

“Today is a good day for gaming in Saskatchewan,” stated SaskGaming president and CEO Susan Flett.
