Oklahoma has long been analogous with Bingo. That is owing to the fact that the Amerindian tribes of Oklahoma have provided Bingo games for years. Guests from many of the surrounding states load up in vehicles and travel into Oklahoma to enjoy Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act followed a precedent setting decision by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. From that time, 23 of the thirty nine Native tribes located in Oklahoma have introduced gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the initial Oklahoma Indian tribes to take advantage of the gaming laws, and today run 10 gambling halls of their own. Bingo is the game on which these casinos were built on. digital games like one armed bandits weren’t allowed, due to the fact that they are believed to lead to gambling problems more than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma rules have altered to allow for large American Indian gambling casinos. You’ll now see American Indian gambling dens with slot machine games, video poker and black jack tables. Craps and roulette are not approved in the American Indian casinos as of yet, although that is simply a matter of time. No one can authority what having different gambling hall games in the bingo parlors will do for the draw of bingo.
