Oklahoma has long been synonymous with Bingo. This is because the Indian tribes of Oklahoma have provided Bingo sessions for years. Guests from many of the nearby states pile in automobiles and travel into Oklahoma to bet on Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act followed a precedent setting decision by The U.S. Supreme Court just the year prior. Since that time, 23 of the 39 Indian bands of Oklahoma have established bingo halls. The Chickasaw were the 1st Oklahoma American Indian band to take advantage of the gambling rules, and at this time run 10 casinos of their own. Bingo was the game on which these gambling halls were built on. Electronic games such as one armed bandits weren't permitted, since they are thought to lead to gambling problems more than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma law has changed to allow for big Indian wagering gambling halls. You'll now see Indian casinos with slot machines, video poker and chemin de fer tables. Craps and roulette are not yet legal in the Indian gambling halls yet, however that is just a matter of time. No one can authority what having different gambling hall games in the bingo houses will do for the appeal of bingo.
