Oklahoma Bingo

Oklahoma has long been interrelated with Bingo. This is because the Amerindian bands of Oklahoma have run Bingo games for years. Patrons from many of the neighboring states get in vehicles and travel into Oklahoma to gamble on Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act became law after a benchmark determination by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. From that instance, twenty three of the thirty nine Amerindian bands of Oklahoma have introduced bingo halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Indian tribes to take advantage of the gambling restrictions, and today run 10 gambling halls of their very own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned casinos were built on. Electronic games such as slot machine games weren’t authorized, since they’re believed to lead to gambling addiction more than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma governing edicts has altered to allow for large Native gambling gambling dens. You’ll now discover Amerindian gambling dens with slot machine games, video poker and black jack tables. Craps and roulette are not yet approved in the American Indian casinos as of yet, however that is only a matter of time. No one can say with what having other gambling den games in the bingo parlours will do for the draw of bingo.
