Oklahoma has long been synonymous with Bingo. That’s due to the fact that the Native tribes of Oklahoma have provided Bingo games for years. Patrons from every one of the surrounding states load up in automobiles and travel into Oklahoma to bet on Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) became law after a benchmark ruling by The U.S. Supreme Court just the year before. From that instance, 23 of the 39 Indian tribes of Oklahoma have opened bingo halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma American Indian tribes to take advantage of the gaming laws, and today control 10 casinos of their own. Bingo was the game on which these gambling dens were built on. automated games like one armed bandits were not permitted, owing to the fact that they are believed to contribute to gambling dependency more than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma governing edicts has altered to permit gigantic American Indian betting casinos. You’ll now find Native gambling dens with slots, video poker and 21 tables. Craps and roulette are not yet legal in the Native gambling halls yet, but this is just a waiting game. No one can determine whether having different games in the bingo houses will do for the popularity of bingo.
