Oklahoma Bingo

[ English ]

Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. This is because the Native bands of Oklahoma have operated Bingo sessions for ages. Patrons from each of the nearby states get in cars and head over to Oklahoma to gamble on Bingo on the weekends.

The 1988 (IGRA) Indian Gaming Regulatory Act became law after a landmark decree by The U.S. Supreme Court the year prior. From that time, 23 of the thirty nine Indian tribes of Oklahoma have introduced gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Native tribes to take advantage of the gambling rules, and at this time run 10 gambling dens of their very own. Bingo is the game on which these gambling halls were built on. digital games such as slot machine games were not allowed, because they’re thought to lead to gambling addiction more than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma rules has altered to permit big Amerindian betting gambling dens. You’ll now find Native gambling halls with slot machines, video poker and blackjack tables. Craps and roulette are still not allowed in the American Indian casinos as of yet, but that is just a waiting game. No one can say what having different gambling den games in the bingo houses will do for the popularity of bingo.
