When it comes to gambling, statistics show Saskatchewan residents bet more household than any other province. Although, most of this is on casino and lottery games, there is still a large demand for sports betting in Saskatchewan.
Where to Bet Sports in Saskatchewan
Since there has been such a large demand for gambling in Saskatchewan, the province has considered the idea of opening an online casino in the past. There are currently 8 casinos in Saskatchewan but none of them offer sports betting or online gambling. If you want to bet on sports in Saskatchewan you either have to go through Sports Select which is run by the WCLC (Western Canada Lottery Corporation), OR you can go to these highly recommended online sites that cater to residents of Saskatchewan.
Casino Regina is the largest Casino in Saskatchewan and is owned and operated by the Sask Gaming corporation. It is regulated by the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority and therefore does not offer sports betting. So, this means that there is nowhere you can walk to and place a single-game sports bet in the province.
Saskatchewan Sports Teams
Curling is the provinicial sport of Saskatchewan and many of Canada’s best curlers hail from the province. The CFL’s Roughriders are the only professional sports team in Saskatchewan, and are heavily supported by residents. There has long been talks of bringing a professional minor hockey team to Saskatchewan, or even an NHL franchise.
