Oklahoma has long been interrelated with Bingo. That's due to the fact that the American Indian tribes of Oklahoma have run Bingo games for many years. Guests from each of the neighboring states get in trucks and visit Oklahoma to enjoy Bingo over the weekends.

The 1988 (IGRA) Indian Gaming Regulatory Act followed a landmark determination by The U.S. Supreme Court the year before. Since that time, 23 of the 39 Native bands of Oklahoma have opened gambling halls. The Chickasaw were the first Oklahoma Indian band to take advantage of the gambling laws, and at this time operate 10 gambling dens of their own. Bingo was the game on which these gambling dens were founded. Electronic games like slot machines were not allowed, on the grounds that they're believed to contribute to gambling dependency more than bingo.

In the past few years, Oklahoma law have altered to allow for gigantic Indian gaming casinos. You'll now find Native gambling dens with slot machines, video poker and twenty-one tables. Craps and roulette are not allowed in the American Indian gambling dens yet, however that is only a matter of time. Nobody can say with what having other games in the bingo houses will do for the popularity of bingo.
