Oklahoma Bingo

Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. That is because the Amerindian tribes of Oklahoma have provided Bingo sessions for many years. Patrons from all of the neighboring states get in passenger cars and head over to Oklahoma to gamble on Bingo on the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act followed a precedent setting determination by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. From that instance, twenty three of the thirty nine Amerindian tribes located in Oklahoma have opened gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the 1st Oklahoma Native tribes to take advantage of the gambling restrictions, and at this time operate ten gambling dens of their own. Bingo is the game on which these gambling dens were founded. Electronic games such as slots were not approved, since they’re thought to lead to gambling problems more than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma governing edicts have altered to allow for gigantic Native betting gambling dens. You’ll now see Indian gambling halls with one armed bandits, video poker and twenty-one tables. Craps and roulette are still not legal in the American Indian gambling halls as of yet, however that is only a matter of time. No one can say what having different gambling den games in the bingo parlors will do for the draw of bingo.
