Oklahoma Bingo

Oklahoma has long been interrelated with Bingo. This is due to the fact that the Amerindian tribes of Oklahoma have operated Bingo games for ages. Guests from all of the nearby states get in vans and visit Oklahoma to bet on Bingo on the weekends.

The 1988 (IGRA) Indian Gaming Regulatory Act became law after a landmark ruling by The U.S. Supreme Court just the prior year. From that time, twenty three of the 39 American Indian bands located in Oklahoma have opened gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Amerindian tribes to take advantage of the gambling rules, and at this time operate 10 casinos of their own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned gambling dens were built on. Electronic games like slots weren’t approved, due to the fact that they are believed to contribute to gambling problems more than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma rules has changed to allow for gigantic Amerindian gambling gambling halls. You’ll now find Indian gambling dens with slot machine games, video poker and blackjack tables. Craps and roulette are still not allowed in the American Indian casinos as of yet, but that is only a waiting game. Nobody can say what having different gambling hall games in the bingo houses will do for the appeal of bingo.
