Oklahoma has long been synonymous with Bingo. This is due to the fact that the Native tribes of Oklahoma have provided Bingo games for generations. Clients from many of the neighboring states get in autos and head over to Oklahoma to wager on Bingo on the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act became law after a benchmark determination by The U.S. Supreme Court just the prior year. From that instance, 23 of the 39 Amerindian tribes located in Oklahoma have established bingo halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Indian band to take advantage of the gambling rules, and at this time operate 10 gambling halls of their own. Bingo is the game on which these gambling halls were built on. digital games such as slot machines were not permitted, since they are thought to contribute to gambling addiction at a higher rate than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma law has changed to allow for massive Native gaming gambling dens. You’ll now find Indian gambling dens with slots, video poker and black jack tables. Craps and roulette are still not legal in the Native casinos yet, however that is just a matter of time. Nobody can say with whether having different casino games in the bingo houses will do for the popularity of bingo.
