Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. This is owing to the fact that the Indian bands of Oklahoma have provided Bingo games for years. Guests from every one of the neighboring states pile in cars and head over to Oklahoma to play Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 (IGRA) Indian Gaming Regulatory Act followed a precedent setting decision by The U.S. Supreme Court the year prior. Since that instance, 23 of the thirty nine Indian bands of Oklahoma have introduced gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the 1st Oklahoma Native tribes to take advantage of the gambling laws, and at this time run ten gambling halls of their own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned gambling halls were built on. computerized games like slot machine games weren’t allowed, due to the fact that they’re thought to contribute to gambling addiction more than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma law has altered to allow for large American Indian gambling gambling dens. You will now see American Indian gambling dens with one armed bandits, video poker and twenty-one tables. Craps and roulette are not allowed in the Amerindian casinos yet, but this is only a waiting game. No one can say with whether having other games in the bingo parlours will do for the appeal of bingo.
