Single game sports betting is still not legal in Saskatchewan.

According to a statement given to DiscoverEstevan by SaskGaming, there are still no concrete plans to implement legal single-game wagers in the province.

The delays come after Bill C-218, which made single game betting legal in Canada, was passed in the Senate over the summer.

The federal ban on single game sports betting was officially lifted on Aug. 27.

Single game betting is already legal in eight other provinces, including provinces that border Saskatchewan.

You can currently place legal single game bets in British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Newfoundland, New Brunswick, and Prince Edward Island.

Here's the statement from SaskGaming's Director of Communications Shanna Schulhauser:

"SaskGaming, on behalf of the government, has been working with SIGA to explore the options for the delivery of online gaming opportunities in Saskatchewan, opportunities which can be expected to include single-event sports betting. While no specific mechanisms have been finalized to allow for this in Saskatchewan, we will continue to work with SIGA and other stakeholders towards making this a reality."

SIGA is the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority. The non-profit organization could end up being the organization that ultimately delivers single game betting in the province, while the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority is the main regulator. 

The federal government hopes the legalization of single game betting in Canada will entice betters who are using offshore betting apps such as Betway and Bet365 to shift over to the legalized systems and bring in revenue for the provinces.
