Oklahoma Bingo

Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. This is owing to the fact that the Native bands of Oklahoma have run Bingo games for generations. Patrons from all of the nearby states get in vehicles and travel to Oklahoma to bet on Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 IGRA followed a landmark decision by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. Since that time, twenty three of the thirty nine Native tribes of Oklahoma have opened gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma American Indian band to take advantage of the gaming restrictions, and at this time run ten casinos of their very own. Bingo was the game on which these gambling halls were built on. computerized games such as slot machines were not authorized, because they’re thought to contribute to gambling addiction at a higher rate than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma rules have altered to permit large Indian wagering gambling dens. You’ll now see Native gambling dens with slots, video poker and 21 tables. Craps and roulette are not approved in the Native gambling halls yet, but that is simply a matter of time. No one can say whether having other games in the bingo parlours will do for the appeal of bingo.
