Oklahoma has long been analogous with Bingo. This is because the Amerindian bands of Oklahoma have run Bingo games for generations. Clients from all of the neighboring states pile in passenger cars and travel to Oklahoma to enjoy Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) followed a precedent setting determination by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. From that time, 23 of the thirty nine Indian tribes located in Oklahoma have established bingo halls. The Chickasaw were the initial Oklahoma Native tribes to take advantage of the wagering rules, and at this time control ten gambling dens of their own. Bingo was the game on which these casinos were founded. computerized games like slots were not permitted, since they are believed to lead to gambling addiction at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma governing edicts have altered to allow for large Native gambling casinos. You’ll now find Indian casinos with one armed bandits, video poker and blackjack tables. Craps and roulette are still not allowed in the Indian gambling halls as of yet, although this is simply a matter of time. No one can determine whether having different casino games in the bingo parlours will do for the popularity of bingo.
