Oklahoma has for a long time been interrelated with Bingo. That is owing to the fact that the Indian tribes of Oklahoma have operated Bingo games for ages. Guests from each of the surrounding states load up in cars and travel to Oklahoma to play Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 IGRA followed a precedent setting decision by The U.S. Supreme Court just the prior year. From that time, twenty three of the thirty nine American Indian bands of Oklahoma have established gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Indian band to take advantage of the betting laws, and today operate ten gambling halls of their own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned gambling dens were built on. digital games like one armed bandits were not permitted, on the grounds that they are believed to lead to gambling problems more than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma governing edicts has changed to allow for large Indian gambling casinos. You will now see Amerindian gambling halls with slots, video poker and twenty-one tables. Craps and roulette are not yet authorized in the Indian gambling dens yet, but this is only a waiting game. No one can determine whether having different games in the bingo houses will do for the draw of bingo.
