Oklahoma has long been analogous with Bingo. That’s because the Amerindian tribes of Oklahoma have run Bingo games for generations. Patrons from all of the nearby states pile in autos and visit Oklahoma to bet on Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act was introduced after a landmark determination by The U.S. Supreme Court just the year before. From that time, 23 of the 39 Native tribes of Oklahoma have opened gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Indian band to take advantage of the betting restrictions, and today run 10 gambling dens of their very own. Bingo is the game on which the above-mentioned gambling dens were founded. automated games like one armed bandits weren’t approved, because they are believed to contribute to gambling dependency at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma law have changed to permit big Amerindian gambling gambling dens. You’ll now find Amerindian casinos with slot machine games, video poker and blackjack tables. Craps and roulette are still not allowed in the Native casinos as of yet, however this is just a waiting game. No one can say with what having other games in the bingo parlors will do for the appeal of bingo.
