Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. This is owing to the fact that the American Indian bands of Oklahoma have provided Bingo sessions for many years. Patrons from every one of the neighboring states load up in cars and visit Oklahoma to enjoy Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) became law after a precedent setting decree by The U.S. Supreme Court just the year before. Since that time, twenty three of the thirty nine Indian bands of Oklahoma have introduced gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the initial Oklahoma Indian tribes to take advantage of the betting restrictions, and today run ten gambling halls of their very own. Bingo is the game on which these gambling halls were built on. computerized games like slot machines weren’t allowed, because they’re believed to lead to gambling problems at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma rules has altered to permit big American Indian betting gambling dens. You’ll now discover Indian casinos with one armed bandits, video poker and chemin de fer tables. Craps and roulette are not yet allowed in the Native casinos as of yet, however this is simply a waiting game. No one can determine whether having other games in the bingo houses will do for the popularity of bingo.
