Oklahoma has long been interrelated with Bingo. That’s because the Amerindian bands of Oklahoma have provided Bingo sessions for decades. Guests from each of the surrounding states pile in cars and visit Oklahoma to play Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 IGRA became law after a precedent setting decree by The U.S. Supreme Court just 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 1st Oklahoma American Indian band to take advantage of the wagering restrictions, and today run ten casinos of their very own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned gambling halls were founded. Electronic games such as slot machines were not authorized, because they’re believed to contribute to gambling dependency more than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma rules has altered to permit large Indian gaming gambling dens. You will now see Indian casinos with slot machines, video poker and chemin de fer tables. Craps and roulette are not approved in the Indian gambling dens yet, although this is simply a waiting game. Nobody can authority whether having different games in the bingo parlours will do for the draw of bingo.
