Oklahoma has long been synonymous with Bingo. That is due to the fact that the Native tribes of Oklahoma have provided Bingo sessions for ages. Clients from each of the nearby states get in vehicles and head over to Oklahoma to play Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 (IGRA) Indian Gaming Regulatory Act followed a landmark ruling by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. From that instance, 23 of the thirty nine American Indian tribes located in Oklahoma have established gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the 1st Oklahoma Native tribes to take advantage of the gambling rules, and at this time run 10 casinos of their own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned casinos were founded. computerized games like slots weren’t allowed, since they are thought to contribute to gambling addiction at a higher rate than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma law have changed to permit large Indian gaming casinos. You’ll now find Amerindian gambling halls with slots, video poker and twenty-one tables. Craps and roulette are still not approved in the Amerindian gambling halls yet, but this is only a matter of time. No one can authority whether having other games in the bingo parlours will do for the appeal of bingo.
