Oklahoma Bingo

Oklahoma has for a long time been interrelated with Bingo. That is because the Native bands of Oklahoma have provided Bingo games for years. Clients from many of the neighboring states get in autos and head over to Oklahoma to bet on Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act followed a precedent setting decree by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. From that time, 23 of the thirty nine Indian bands located in Oklahoma have established bingo halls. The Chickasaw were the initial Oklahoma American Indian band to take advantage of the gambling rules, and today run 10 gambling halls of their very own. Bingo is the game on which the above-mentioned gambling dens were founded. Electronic games like one armed bandits weren’t approved, owing to the fact that they are believed to contribute to gambling problems at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma rules have changed to permit enormous Native gambling gambling halls. You’ll now see American Indian gambling dens with slots, video poker and blackjack tables. Craps and roulette are still not approved in the American Indian casinos yet, however this is simply a waiting game. Nobody can say what having other gambling hall games in the bingo parlours will do for the draw of bingo.
