Native American gaming The history of native American commercial gambling began in , when the Seminoles began running bingo games. Native Americans were familiar with the concept of small-scale gambling, such as placing bets on sporting contests. For example, the Iroquois, Ojibways, and Menominees would place bets on games of snow snake. By , about three hundred native American groups hosted some sort of gaming. Tribal gaming is regulated on the tribal, state, and federal level.
Native American tribes are required to use gambling revenue to provide for governmental operations, economic development, and the welfare of their members. Federal regulation of native American gaming was established under the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act of Under the provisions of that law, games are divided into three distinct categories: Class I games are "traditional" games that involve little or no wagering.
Class II games include bingo, pull-tabs , and certain non-banked card games poker , cribbage , contract bridge , whist , etc. Class III games include all casino games craps , roulette , blackjack , baccarat , slot machines , and other games where the player bets against the house and games that do not properly fall into classes I or II. Approximately forty percent of the federally recognized tribes operate gaming establishments. Some tribes are too isolated geographically to make a casino successful, while some do not want non-native Americans on their land.
Though casino gambling is controversial, it has proven economically successful for most tribes, and the impact of American Indian gambling has proven to be far-reaching. Gaming creates many jobs, not only for native Americans, but also for non-native Americans, and in this way can positively affect relations with the non-native American community.
