Oklahoma Bingo

Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. This is due to the fact that the Native tribes of Oklahoma have run Bingo games for ages. Guests from each of the nearby states get in autos and visit Oklahoma to enjoy Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 IGRA followed a landmark decision by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. Since that time, 23 of the thirty nine Amerindian tribes located in Oklahoma have opened gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the 1st Oklahoma Native band to take advantage of the gaming laws, and at this time run 10 casinos of their very own. Bingo is the game on which the above-mentioned gambling dens were founded. Electronic games such as slot machines weren’t allowed, due to the fact that they are believed to contribute to gambling addiction at a higher rate than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma governing edicts have altered to allow for gigantic American Indian gaming gambling dens. You will now discover Amerindian gambling dens with one armed bandits, video poker and vingt-et-un tables. Craps and roulette are still not approved in the Indian casinos yet, although that is only a matter of time. No one can authority what having other games in the bingo parlours will do for the popularity of bingo.
