Oklahoma has long been analogous with Bingo. That is because the American Indian bands of Oklahoma have run Bingo games for ages. Clients from all of the neighboring states load up in cars and travel into Oklahoma to enjoy Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act followed a landmark decision by The U.S. Supreme Court just the year before. From that instance, twenty three of the thirty nine Indian tribes located in Oklahoma have established gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Native band to take advantage of the gaming rules, and today run ten casinos of their very own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned gambling dens were built on. Electronic games such as slots weren’t allowed, because they are thought to lead to gambling addiction more than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma governing edicts has changed to permit gigantic Indian betting gambling dens. You will now see Amerindian gambling dens with slot machine games, video poker and blackjack tables. Craps and roulette are not authorized in the Indian gambling dens yet, but that is only a matter of time. No one can say with what having different gambling hall games in the bingo parlours will do for the popularity of bingo.
