Oklahoma Bingo

[ English ]

Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. This is because the Native bands of Oklahoma have provided Bingo sessions for many years. Patrons from all of the nearby states load up in cars and travel into Oklahoma to gamble on Bingo for the weekends.

The 1988 IGRA became law after a benchmark determination by The U.S. Supreme Court the year prior. From that time, twenty three of the thirty nine Native bands of Oklahoma have introduced gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma American Indian tribes to take advantage of the gaming restrictions, and today operate ten gambling halls of their own. Bingo was the game on which the above-mentioned gambling halls were founded. Electronic games such as one armed bandits weren’t permitted, because they are thought to lead to gambling dependency at a higher rate than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma governing edicts has altered to permit large American Indian gambling gambling dens. You’ll now discover American Indian casinos with slots, video poker and black jack tables. Craps and roulette are still not allowed in the Native gambling dens yet, although that is simply a matter of time. Nobody can say whether having other games in the bingo parlours will do for the appeal of bingo.
