Oklahoma has long been synonymous with Bingo. This is because the Amerindian tribes of Oklahoma have provided Bingo sessions for ages. Guests from all of the neighboring states load up in vans and travel into Oklahoma to bet on Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 IGRA became law after a precedent setting determination by The U.S. Supreme Court the year prior. From that time, 23 of the thirty nine Indian tribes located in Oklahoma have opened gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Amerindian tribes to take advantage of the gaming restrictions, and today operate ten gambling halls of their own. Bingo is the game on which the above-mentioned gambling halls were founded. computerized games like slot machines weren’t authorized, due to the fact that they are believed to lead to gambling addiction at a higher rate than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma law have altered to permit gigantic Native betting gambling halls. You will now see Amerindian casinos with slots, video poker and blackjack tables. Craps and roulette are not yet authorized in the Indian gambling dens yet, but this is only a waiting game. Nobody can authority what having different games in the bingo parlors will do for the draw of bingo.
