Oklahoma has long been interrelated with Bingo. That’s because the Native tribes of Oklahoma have provided Bingo games for many years. Guests from each of the nearby states pile in autos and head over to Oklahoma to enjoy Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 IGRA followed a precedent setting decision by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. Since that time, twenty three of the 39 Native tribes located in Oklahoma have opened gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the initial Oklahoma American Indian band to take advantage of the gambling rules, and at this time control 10 gambling halls of their own. Bingo was the game on which these gambling dens were built on. computerized games like one armed bandits weren’t permitted, because they are thought to lead to gambling addiction at a higher rate than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma rules has changed to permit enormous American Indian betting gambling dens. You will now find American Indian gambling dens with slots, video poker and blackjack tables. Craps and roulette are not yet approved in the Native gambling dens yet, however this is only a matter of time. Nobody can authority what having other gambling hall games in the bingo houses will do for the draw of bingo.
