Oklahoma has for a long time been synonymous with Bingo. That is because the Indian bands of Oklahoma have provided Bingo sessions for years. Patrons from many of the surrounding states pile in autos and travel into Oklahoma to wager on Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) became law after a precedent setting ruling by The U.S. Supreme Court the year prior. Since that time, twenty three of the 39 American Indian bands located in Oklahoma have opened gaming halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma American Indian tribes to take advantage of the wagering laws, and today control 10 gambling dens of their very own. Bingo is the game on which the above-mentioned casinos were founded. Electronic games like slots weren't authorized, since they are believed to contribute to gambling dependency at a higher rate than bingo.

In recent years, Oklahoma law have changed to allow for massive Amerindian wagering casinos. You will now see Indian casinos with slots, video poker and twenty-one tables. Craps and roulette are still not approved in the Native casinos yet, but this is just a waiting game. Nobody can determine what having other gambling hall games in the bingo parlours will do for the appeal of bingo.
