Oklahoma Bingo

Oklahoma has for a long time been interrelated with Bingo. This is due to the fact that the Indian bands of Oklahoma have run Bingo games for decades. Guests from each of the surrounding states pile in vans and head over to Oklahoma to enjoy Bingo on the weekends.

The 1988 (IGRA) Indian Gaming Regulatory Act was introduced after a benchmark decision by The U.S. Supreme Court the year prior. Since that instance, twenty three of the 39 Indian tribes of Oklahoma have introduced gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma American Indian band to take advantage of the gaming rules, and at this time control 10 gambling dens of their very own. Bingo was the game on which these casinos were built on. Electronic games like slots were not authorized, because they are thought to lead to gambling problems more than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma governing edicts have changed to permit large American Indian gaming gambling dens. You’ll now find Native gambling dens with slot machines, video poker and 21 tables. Craps and roulette are not yet allowed in the American Indian gambling dens as of yet, although this is just a waiting game. No one can determine what having different gambling hall games in the bingo parlors will do for the appeal of bingo.
