Table games now operating at Casinos Regina and Moose Jaw

Casinos Regina and Moose Jaw are once again offering table games.

When both re-opened in July, table games were not part of the equation, but as of Thursday, they now are on a limited basis as four blackjack tables, one roulette and one baccarat are open in Regina with one blackjack and one roulette table being opened in Moose Jaw.

Saskgaming spokesperson Shanna Schulhauser says she expects this news will mean more traffic coming into both venues.

“Guest demand has been steady since we re-opened three months ago.” Schulhauser said. “Capacity limits at both have been reached several times so adding this additional service will impact this as well.”

There are restrictions in place with one of those being for patrons being unable to touch cards so poker games aren’t being played at this time

Schulhauser adds one benefit of this move is that some who were laid off when the casinos were closed in March can now return to their jobs.  Over 500 were laid off when the casinos closed in March with nearly half returning when the facilities re-opened in July.
