In Oklahoma, a bill has cleared the State Senate that would allow the addition of ball (roulette) and dice games at tribal casinos. The bill was approved earlier this week by a vote of 30 to 16. The bill has to be considered in the State House before it could become law.

Supporters said the games could bring in additional gambling revenue to the state.

The addition of ball and dice games could bring in another $22 million for state coffers next year and $49 million in the following years, contend bill sponsors, according to local media reports.
