Oklahoma has long been analogous with Bingo. That is because the American Indian tribes of Oklahoma have provided Bingo sessions for ages. Guests from many of the nearby states get in vans and visit Oklahoma to gamble on Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act became law after a landmark decision by The U.S. Supreme Court just the year before. From that time, twenty three of the thirty nine Native bands of Oklahoma have established gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Native band to take advantage of the betting laws, and at this time operate 10 gambling halls of their own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned casinos were founded. digital games such as slot machine games weren’t allowed, since they’re believed to lead to gambling dependency at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma rules has changed to allow for large American Indian gaming gambling halls. You will now see Native gambling dens with one armed bandits, video poker and vingt-et-un tables. Craps and roulette are still not approved in the Amerindian gambling dens yet, however that is simply a matter of time. No one can determine what having different games in the bingo houses will do for the appeal of bingo.
