Oklahoma Bingo

Oklahoma has long been interrelated with Bingo. This is owing to the fact that the Amerindian bands of Oklahoma have operated Bingo sessions for decades. Guests from many of the neighboring states pile in passenger cars and visit Oklahoma to play Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 (IGRA) Indian Gaming Regulatory Act was introduced after a precedent setting determination by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. Since that instance, twenty three of the 39 Indian tribes of Oklahoma have opened bingo halls. The Chickasaw were the 1st Oklahoma Amerindian tribes to take advantage of the gambling rules, and today operate 10 gambling dens of their own. Bingo is the game on which these casinos were built on. digital games such as one armed bandits weren’t approved, since they’re believed to contribute to gambling addiction at a higher rate than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma law have altered to permit enormous American Indian gambling casinos. You’ll now see Indian casinos with slot machines, video poker and blackjack tables. Craps and roulette are not yet allowed in the Indian casinos as of yet, but this is simply a matter of time. No one can say with what having other games in the bingo houses will do for the popularity of bingo.
