Oklahoma Bingo

[ English ]

Oklahoma has long been synonymous with Bingo. That’s because the Native tribes of Oklahoma have operated Bingo games for decades. Guests from many of the neighboring states load up in trucks and travel into Oklahoma to wager on Bingo over 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. From that time, twenty three of the thirty nine Amerindian bands located in Oklahoma have introduced gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Amerindian tribes to take advantage of the gaming rules, and at this time run 10 gambling dens of their very own. Bingo was the game on which these casinos were built on. digital games such as slot machines were not authorized, due to the fact that they’re believed to lead to gambling problems more than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma rules has altered to permit big Indian gaming casinos. You’ll now find Native casinos with slot machine games, video poker and 21 tables. Craps and roulette are still not approved in the Native gambling dens as of yet, however that is simply a waiting game. Nobody can authority whether having other games in the bingo parlors will do for the draw of bingo.
