Bingo in Oklahoma

Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. That’s because the Native tribes of Oklahoma have provided Bingo sessions for ages. Guests from many of the nearby states load up in passenger cars and head over to Oklahoma to bet on Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act followed a precedent setting decision by The U.S. Supreme Court just the year prior. Since that instance, 23 of the 39 Native bands of Oklahoma have established gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the initial Oklahoma Indian tribes to take advantage of the betting rules, and at this time run 10 gambling halls of their own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned casinos were founded. Electronic games such as slot machines weren’t allowed, due to the fact that they are thought to lead to gambling problems at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma law have altered to permit large Native betting gambling dens. You will now discover Amerindian gambling dens with slot machines, video poker and twenty-one tables. Craps and roulette are still not authorized in the Native gambling dens as of yet, although this is only a waiting game. Nobody can authority whether having different games in the bingo houses will do for the popularity of bingo.
