Oklahoma Bingo

Oklahoma has long been analogous with Bingo. That’s due to the fact that the Amerindian bands of Oklahoma have operated Bingo sessions for generations. Guests from all of the neighboring states load up in cars and head over to Oklahoma to bet on Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 IGRA followed a benchmark decree by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. Since that time, twenty three of the 39 Indian tribes located in Oklahoma have established gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the 1st Oklahoma American Indian band to take advantage of the wagering laws, and today control 10 gambling dens of their own. Bingo was the game on which these gambling halls were founded. Electronic games like slot machine games were not permitted, because they are believed to contribute to gambling problems at a higher rate than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma governing edicts have altered to allow for massive Native wagering gambling halls. You will now discover Native casinos with slot machines, video poker and 21 tables. Craps and roulette are still not allowed in the Indian gambling halls yet, however that is simply a waiting game. No one can authority whether having different games in the bingo parlours will do for the popularity of bingo.
