Oklahoma has for a long time been interrelated with Bingo. This is due to the fact that the Indian bands of Oklahoma have operated Bingo games for ages. Guests from every one of the nearby states load up in trucks and visit Oklahoma to enjoy Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) became law after a benchmark decision by The U.S. Supreme Court the year prior. Since that time, twenty three of the 39 American Indian bands located in Oklahoma have established gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the 1st Oklahoma Amerindian band to take advantage of the gambling laws, and today control 10 gambling halls of their own. Bingo was the game on which these gambling dens were built on. digital games such as slot machines weren’t permitted, due to the fact that they are believed to lead to gambling addiction more than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma rules have changed to permit large American Indian gambling gambling dens. You will now see American Indian gambling halls with slot machines, video poker and 21 tables. Craps and roulette are not authorized in the Native casinos yet, but this is simply a waiting game. No one can determine whether having different gambling hall games in the bingo houses will do for the draw of bingo.
