Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. That’s due to the fact that the Indian tribes of Oklahoma have operated Bingo games for ages. Patrons from every one of the neighboring states pile in cars and travel into Oklahoma to enjoy Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 (IGRA) Indian Gaming Regulatory Act became law after a benchmark ruling by The U.S. Supreme Court the year prior. Since that instance, 23 of the thirty nine Native tribes of Oklahoma have established gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the 1st Oklahoma Indian tribes to take advantage of the gambling restrictions, and at this time control ten gambling halls of their own. Bingo is the game on which the above-mentioned gambling halls were founded. Electronic games like one armed bandits weren’t allowed, since they are believed to lead to gambling problems more than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma rules have changed to allow for gigantic American Indian gambling gambling dens. You’ll now discover Indian gambling dens with one armed bandits, video poker and chemin de fer tables. Craps and roulette are not yet authorized in the Amerindian gambling halls as of yet, however this is just a waiting game. No one can say what having other games in the bingo parlours will do for the draw of bingo.
