Oklahoma has long been synonymous with Bingo. This is due to the fact that the Native tribes of Oklahoma have operated Bingo sessions for many years. Patrons from all of the nearby states load up in passenger cars and travel to Oklahoma to wager on Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) followed a landmark decree by The U.S. Supreme Court just the year before. Since that time, 23 of the 39 American Indian bands located in Oklahoma have opened gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the 1st Oklahoma American Indian band to take advantage of the betting restrictions, and today control 10 gambling dens of their very own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned casinos were founded. computerized games such as slot machines weren’t permitted, owing to the fact that they are believed to contribute to gambling problems more than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma rules has altered to permit big Amerindian wagering gambling dens. You will now find Amerindian casinos with slot machines, video poker and black jack tables. Craps and roulette are not approved in the Native gambling dens as of yet, however that is simply a waiting game. Nobody can authority whether having other games in the bingo parlours will do for the popularity of bingo.
