Bingo in Oklahoma

Oklahoma has long been interrelated with Bingo. That’s because the Indian bands of Oklahoma have operated Bingo games for ages. Patrons from all of the surrounding states pile in vans and travel into Oklahoma to enjoy Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act was introduced after a benchmark decision by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. Since that time, twenty three of the thirty nine American Indian tribes of Oklahoma have established gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the 1st Oklahoma Amerindian tribes to take advantage of the gambling restrictions, and at this time run ten casinos of their very own. Bingo is the game on which the above-mentioned gambling dens were built on. automated games such as slot machines were not approved, since they’re thought to lead to gambling problems at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma law has changed to allow for big Amerindian gambling gambling halls. You’ll now see Indian casinos with slot machines, video poker and 21 tables. Craps and roulette are not yet approved in the American Indian gambling halls as of yet, although this is simply a matter of time. No one can determine whether having other casino games in the bingo houses will do for the popularity of bingo.
