Oklahoma has long been synonymous with Bingo. This is owing to the fact that the Indian tribes of Oklahoma have provided Bingo games for years. Guests from all of the surrounding states get in vehicles and travel to Oklahoma to gamble on Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act followed a benchmark decree by The U.S. Supreme Court just the year prior. From that instance, 23 of the thirty nine Indian bands located in Oklahoma have opened gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the 1st Oklahoma Native tribes to take advantage of the gambling restrictions, and today run 10 gambling halls of their own. Bingo is the game on which the above-mentioned gambling dens were built on. digital games such as slot machines weren’t approved, owing to the fact that they’re thought to contribute to gambling problems at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma law have altered to allow for gigantic Indian gambling gambling dens. You will now see Native gambling dens with slot machine games, video poker and 21 tables. Craps and roulette are still not allowed in the Amerindian gambling halls as of yet, however this is just a waiting game. Nobody can determine whether having different casino games in the bingo houses will do for the draw of bingo.
