Oklahoma Bingo

Oklahoma has long been analogous with Bingo. That is owing to the fact that the American Indian tribes of Oklahoma have provided Bingo sessions for ages. Guests from many of the neighboring states pile in vehicles and travel to Oklahoma to play Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 (IGRA) Indian Gaming Regulatory Act became law after a precedent setting ruling by The U.S. Supreme Court the year prior. Since that time, twenty three of the 39 Amerindian tribes located in Oklahoma have established bingo halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma American Indian band to take advantage of the gaming laws, and at this time operate 10 gambling halls of their very own. Bingo was the game on which these casinos were built on. automated games such as slot machine games weren’t permitted, because they’re thought to contribute to gambling addiction at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma governing edicts have changed to permit gigantic American Indian betting casinos. You’ll now find Amerindian gambling dens with slot machines, video poker and black jack tables. Craps and roulette are not yet approved in the Native casinos as of yet, although that is simply a matter of time. No one can say what having other games in the bingo parlours will do for the draw of bingo.
