While they’re plugging slot machines, patrons who own electric vehicles now can plug in their EVs at three Saskatchewan casinos.

In a media release Monday, the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority (SIGA) announced Level 3 (fast charging) and Level 2 charging stations are now available at Northern Lights Casino in Prince Albert, Gold Eagle Casino in North Battleford and Painted Hand Casino in Yorkton.

“It is important to us to operate in an environmentally sustainable manner and build that into our operational plans going forward, staying true to SIGA’s guiding principle of Witaskêwin, which means living together on the land,” Daniel Morin, the director of SIGA operations, said in the release.
