Oklahoma has for a long time been analogous with Bingo. This is owing to the fact that the Amerindian tribes of Oklahoma have operated Bingo games for decades. Guests from each of the nearby states pile in passenger cars and head over to Oklahoma to play Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) became law after a precedent setting determination by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. Since that time, twenty three of the 39 Indian bands located in Oklahoma have opened gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the initial Oklahoma Indian tribes to take advantage of the wagering rules, and at this time control ten casinos of their very own. Bingo was the game on which these casinos were founded. digital games like slot machines were not allowed, owing to the fact that they are believed to contribute to gambling problems more than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma law have changed to allow for enormous Amerindian betting casinos. You will now see Amerindian gambling halls with one armed bandits, video poker and black jack tables. Craps and roulette are not yet approved in the American Indian gambling halls as of yet, but this is just a matter of time. No one can authority whether having different games in the bingo houses will do for the appeal of bingo.
