Oklahoma has long been analogous with Bingo. This is owing to the fact that the Native tribes of Oklahoma have provided Bingo games for ages. Clients from each of the nearby states get in cars and visit Oklahoma to play Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) became law after a landmark determination by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. From that time, twenty three of the 39 American Indian tribes located in Oklahoma have opened gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the initial Oklahoma American Indian band to take advantage of the gaming rules, and today control ten gambling dens of their very own. Bingo is the game on which these gambling halls were built on. digital games like slots were not allowed, due to the fact that they are believed to contribute to gambling dependency more than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma rules has changed to allow for big Native betting gambling dens. You will now find Indian gambling halls with slot machines, video poker and 21 tables. Craps and roulette are still not legal in the Amerindian gambling halls yet, but this is simply a matter of time. Nobody can say whether having other gambling hall games in the bingo parlors will do for the popularity of bingo.
