Oklahoma Bingo

Oklahoma has for a long time been interrelated with Bingo. That is because the Indian tribes of Oklahoma have operated Bingo games for ages. Guests from many of the surrounding states get in automobiles and travel to Oklahoma to gamble on Bingo on the weekends.

The 1988 (IGRA) Indian Gaming Regulatory Act became law after a precedent setting decree by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. Since that instance, 23 of the thirty nine Amerindian tribes of Oklahoma have opened bingo halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Indian band to take advantage of the gambling restrictions, and today operate 10 gambling halls of their very own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned gambling dens were built on. Electronic games such as slot machine games weren’t allowed, owing to the fact that they’re believed to contribute to gambling dependency at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma law has altered to allow for big Amerindian betting casinos. You will now find Amerindian gambling halls with slot machine games, video poker and black jack tables. Craps and roulette are not authorized in the Native casinos yet, although this is simply a waiting game. Nobody can determine whether having different gambling den games in the bingo parlours will do for the draw of bingo.
