Oklahoma has long been analogous with Bingo. That is because the Indian tribes of Oklahoma have run Bingo sessions for years. Clients from all of the surrounding states pile in cars and visit Oklahoma to enjoy Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 (IGRA) Indian Gaming Regulatory Act followed a landmark decision by The U.S. Supreme Court just the prior year. Since that time, 23 of the 39 Amerindian tribes located in Oklahoma have established gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the initial Oklahoma Native band to take advantage of the betting rules, and today control ten casinos of their own. Bingo is the game on which the above-mentioned casinos were founded. computerized games like one armed bandits were not allowed, since they are thought to lead to gambling problems more than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma governing edicts has altered to allow for large Amerindian gaming gambling halls. You will now find Indian gambling halls with slot machines, video poker and blackjack tables. Craps and roulette are not allowed in the American Indian casinos as of yet, however that is just a waiting game. Nobody can authority whether having different casino games in the bingo parlors will do for the popularity of bingo.
