Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. This is because the American Indian tribes of Oklahoma have operated Bingo games for years. Clients from all of the neighboring states pile in automobiles and head over to Oklahoma to play Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) was introduced after a precedent setting determination by The U.S. Supreme Court the year prior. From that time, 23 of the thirty nine Native bands located in Oklahoma have established gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the initial Oklahoma Native band to take advantage of the betting rules, and today run 10 gambling halls of their very own. Bingo is the game on which these casinos were built on. automated games like slot machines were not authorized, due to the fact that they are thought to lead to gambling addiction at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma law have altered to permit gigantic Indian betting gambling halls. You’ll now see Indian casinos with one armed bandits, video poker and black jack tables. Craps and roulette are not yet allowed in the Indian gambling dens as of yet, but this is simply a waiting game. No one can determine what having other games in the bingo parlours will do for the draw of bingo.
