Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. This is due to the fact that the American Indian bands of Oklahoma have run Bingo games for decades. Patrons from many of the nearby states pile in vehicles and travel into Oklahoma to gamble on Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act became law after a benchmark determination by The U.S. Supreme Court the year prior. From that time, 23 of the 39 Indian tribes located in Oklahoma have established gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Amerindian tribes to take advantage of the wagering laws, and today operate 10 gambling dens of their very own. Bingo is the game on which the above-mentioned gambling dens were founded. automated games such as slots weren’t authorized, because they are thought to lead to gambling addiction more than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma rules have altered to permit enormous Amerindian wagering casinos. You will now see Amerindian gambling dens with slot machine games, video poker and black jack tables. Craps and roulette are not yet authorized in the American Indian casinos as of yet, but this is just a matter of time. No one can say what having other gambling hall games in the bingo parlours will do for the draw of bingo.
