Oklahoma Bingo

[ English ]

Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. That’s because the Amerindian bands of Oklahoma have operated Bingo games for years. Patrons from all of the nearby states pile in vehicles and head over to Oklahoma to enjoy Bingo on the weekends.

The 1988 (IGRA) Indian Gaming Regulatory Act became law after a benchmark ruling by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. Since that time, 23 of the thirty nine Indian tribes of Oklahoma have introduced gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Native tribes to take advantage of the gaming restrictions, and today run 10 casinos of their own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned casinos were founded. digital games such as slot machine games were not allowed, because they are thought to contribute to gambling problems at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma governing edicts has altered to allow for enormous American Indian gambling gambling halls. You will now find Indian gambling dens with slots, video poker and black jack tables. Craps and roulette are not legal in the Amerindian gambling halls as of yet, although this is simply a waiting game. No one can say whether having other gambling den games in the bingo houses will do for the appeal of bingo.
