Oklahoma Bingo

[ English ]

Oklahoma has long been synonymous with Bingo. That is due to the fact that the Amerindian bands of Oklahoma have run Bingo sessions for years. Guests from each of the surrounding states get in vehicles and visit Oklahoma to gamble on Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 IGRA became law after a precedent setting determination by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. From that instance, twenty three of the thirty nine American Indian bands of Oklahoma have opened gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Amerindian band to take advantage of the gambling restrictions, and today run 10 casinos of their very own. Bingo is the game on which these casinos were founded. digital games such as slot machines weren’t allowed, since they are believed to contribute to gambling problems more than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma governing edicts have altered to allow for big Indian wagering gambling dens. You will now discover Amerindian gambling dens with slot machines, video poker and chemin de fer tables. Craps and roulette are not approved in the American Indian casinos as of yet, although this is only a waiting game. Nobody can authority what having different games in the bingo parlours will do for the popularity of bingo.
