Bingo in Oklahoma

Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. That is due to the fact that the American Indian tribes of Oklahoma have run Bingo games for many years. Guests from many of the surrounding states pile in automobiles and head over to Oklahoma to wager on Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act followed a landmark decree by The U.S. Supreme Court just the year before. Since that time, 23 of the 39 Indian tribes located in Oklahoma have established gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma American Indian tribes to take advantage of the gambling rules, and at this time run 10 gambling halls of their very own. Bingo is the game on which the above-mentioned gambling halls were founded. Electronic games such as slot machines were not allowed, due to the fact that they’re believed to lead to gambling addiction more than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma rules has altered to permit enormous Indian gaming gambling dens. You’ll now find Native gambling dens with slots, video poker and twenty-one tables. Craps and roulette are not approved in the Native gambling halls yet, although this is only a matter of time. Nobody can say with whether having other casino games in the bingo houses will do for the draw of bingo.
