Oklahoma has long been interrelated with Bingo. That’s because the American Indian tribes of Oklahoma have operated Bingo sessions for many years. Guests from all of the surrounding states load up in cars and head over to Oklahoma to play Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act was introduced after a landmark ruling by The U.S. Supreme Court just the year before. Since that time, twenty three of the thirty nine Native tribes of Oklahoma have introduced gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the initial Oklahoma Amerindian tribes to take advantage of the gaming restrictions, and at this time control ten gambling halls of their own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned gambling dens were built on. digital games like slots weren’t authorized, due to the fact that they’re thought to lead to gambling problems at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma rules has changed to permit large American Indian gambling casinos. You will now discover Indian gambling dens with slot machine games, video poker and vingt-et-un tables. Craps and roulette are not allowed in the Indian casinos as of yet, but that is only a matter of time. No one can say what having other games in the bingo houses will do for the popularity of bingo.
