Oklahoma has long been interrelated with Bingo. That is due to the fact that the Amerindian tribes of Oklahoma have run Bingo sessions for ages. Clients from each of the neighboring states get in cars and travel into Oklahoma to play Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 IGRA was introduced after a landmark ruling by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. From that instance, 23 of the 39 American Indian bands of Oklahoma have established bingo halls. The Chickasaw were the initial Oklahoma Indian tribes to take advantage of the gaming rules, and today operate 10 gambling halls of their own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned gambling halls were founded. automated games such as one armed bandits weren’t authorized, because they are believed to lead to gambling problems more than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma rules has changed to allow for massive Indian gaming casinos. You will now see American Indian casinos with one armed bandits, video poker and black jack tables. Craps and roulette are still not legal in the Indian gambling dens yet, however this is simply a matter of time. No one can say whether having different games in the bingo parlors will do for the appeal of bingo.
