Bingo in Oklahoma

[ English ]

Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. That is owing to the fact that the American Indian bands of Oklahoma have run Bingo sessions for generations. Patrons from many of the neighboring states pile in passenger cars and head over to Oklahoma to gamble on Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 IGRA followed a landmark determination by The U.S. Supreme Court the year prior. From that instance, 23 of the thirty nine Native tribes located in Oklahoma have introduced gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Indian tribes to take advantage of the gaming rules, and at this time control ten gambling dens of their very own. Bingo was the game on which these gambling halls were built on. automated games such as slots weren’t authorized, because they’re believed to contribute to gambling addiction at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma law have changed to permit large American Indian wagering gambling dens. You will now see American Indian casinos with slots, video poker and blackjack tables. Craps and roulette are not yet allowed in the Native gambling halls as of yet, however this is just a matter of time. Nobody can say with what having other games in the bingo parlors will do for the appeal of bingo.
