Bingo and Oklahoma: Two birds of a feather

Oklahoma has for a long time been analogous with Bingo. This is owing to the fact that the Native tribes of Oklahoma have provided Bingo games for ages. Guests from every one of the surrounding states pile in vehicles and head over to Oklahoma to wager on Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 (IGRA) Indian Gaming Regulatory Act followed a benchmark decision by The U.S. Supreme Court the year prior. Since that instance, twenty three of the thirty nine American Indian bands located in Oklahoma have opened bingo halls. The Chickasaw were the initial Oklahoma Native band to take advantage of the wagering rules, and today control ten gambling halls of their own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned gambling halls were built on. computerized games such as one armed bandits weren’t approved, since they’re thought to contribute to gambling problems at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma governing edicts has changed to allow for large Amerindian wagering gambling halls. You will now see Native gambling dens with slot machines, video poker and chemin de fer tables. Craps and roulette are not yet allowed in the Indian casinos as of yet, but that is just a waiting game. No one can determine whether having other gambling den games in the bingo parlours will do for the draw of bingo.
