Oklahoma Casinos

There are sixty Oklahoma casinos, all operated by Native American tribes. Oklahoma gambling is the largest beneficiary of the lack of gambling in Texas. Dozens of Native American casinos are right on the Oklahoma-Texas state line. These Oklahoma casinos are the closest to Dallas and other major metropolitan areas.

All casinos in Oklahoma must be located on Native American tribal lands. Some are backed by significant casino corporations, like Harrah’s and Caesars. However, most Oklahoma casinos are managed by the tribes.

Horse Betting iconThere is only one form of online gambling that is legal in Oklahoma. That is off-track betting on horses. TwinSpires holds the monopoly on this action for state residents. Other advance deposit wagering sites take bets on Oklahoma races but do not accept players from the state.

Daily fantasy sports sites operate in Oklahoma. All make claims to be skill gaming that is not covered by Oklahoma’s anti-gambling laws. The state has done nothing to challenge this opinion. DraftKings, FanDuel, Yahoo!, and CBS Sports all participate in the Oklahoma market.

Types of Live Gambling in Oklahoma

There are 60 Native American casinos in Oklahoma that have odd rules. This includes a $.50 fee on blackjack tables and $1 for craps and roulette. The craps and roulette in Oklahoma are not the same as it is in major casino states. In addition to the ante, cards are used instead of dice and roulette wheels. Some Oklahoma casinos have come up with some very creative ways to spread these games with decks of cards.

Oklahoma casinos may spread other table card games. This includes blackjack, Three Card Poker, baccarat, Ultimate Texas Hold’em, and Pai Gow Poker. Antes may be required on these games to create player pools required by the state. Slot games, video poker, and live poker are among the other available casino games.

Oklahoma Gambling History

Oklahoma casino historyThe horse racing industry was the first gambling enterprise to become legal in Oklahoma. That occurred in 1982. Live and off-track betting on horses is legal. Charities were first approved for bingo and raffles in 1992. The lottery was created in 2003 by the state legislature. Voters approved the constitutional amendment the following year. The first state lottery ticket was sold in 2005.

The marketing by the Oklahoma Lottery has not always conformed to the standards set by the gambling industry. Players noticed that a Powerball simulator on its site was rigged. Players won astronomically more often than they should have on the play money site. Online gaming sites are required by gaming commissions to set play money games at the same payout rate as real money ones. The Oklahoma Lottery acknowledged that this was not being done in August 2013. The simulator was removed from its site.

Voters approved the creation and operation of tribal casinos in Oklahoma, during the same referendum as the lottery. This helped dozens of Native American tribes enter the casino business. As many rely on money from Texas to survive.
