Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. That’s because the Native bands of Oklahoma have operated Bingo games for generations. Clients from many of the surrounding states pile in trucks and head over to Oklahoma to wager on Bingo on the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) was introduced after a precedent setting ruling by The U.S. Supreme Court the year prior. From that instance, twenty three of the thirty nine Indian tribes located in Oklahoma have established gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Amerindian tribes to take advantage of the gaming restrictions, and at this time run 10 gambling dens of their very own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned gambling halls were founded. Electronic games like slot machines were not approved, because they are thought to contribute to gambling problems more than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma rules has altered to permit big Amerindian wagering gambling dens. You’ll now discover Amerindian gambling dens with slots, video poker and blackjack tables. Craps and roulette are not yet allowed in the American Indian gambling dens as of yet, although this is simply a waiting game. Nobody can authority whether having different casino games in the bingo parlours will do for the popularity of bingo.
