South Beach casino and resort is a hotel and casino located in Scanterbury, in Manitoba, about thirty minutes northeast of Winnipeg. It opened in 2005, and is one of two casinos owned by seven Manitoba Indian First Nations. The casino was developed by an American based company from Minnesota, called Hemisphere Gaming. South Beach casino has a management agreement with Hemisphere until the year 2028.
Funding was sought by the seven Manitoba First Nations to build the resort and casino, but the Hemisphere Gaming of Minnesota was the only company willing to help what was considered a high-risk venture.
