Oklahoma has long been synonymous with Bingo. That’s because the Amerindian bands of Oklahoma have operated Bingo games for years. Clients from all of the nearby states get in passenger cars and travel to Oklahoma to wager on Bingo on the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act became law after a benchmark ruling by The U.S. Supreme Court just the year before. From that time, twenty three of the 39 Native bands located in Oklahoma have opened bingo halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma American Indian band to take advantage of the gambling rules, and at this time control ten gambling dens of their own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned casinos were founded. automated games such as slot machines were not permitted, due to the fact that they are believed to contribute to gambling addiction more than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma governing edicts have altered to allow for gigantic Amerindian gaming gambling dens. You will now see Indian gambling dens with one armed bandits, video poker and blackjack tables. Craps and roulette are not yet allowed in the Amerindian gambling dens yet, however that is just a waiting game. No one can determine what having other gambling hall games in the bingo houses will do for the popularity of bingo.
