Indian gaming began as bingo halls offering high-stakes bingo. After a series of court battles, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 1987 that federally-recognized tribes could operate casinos outside of state jurisdiction.
This forced Congress to pass the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act (IGRA) in 1988. Under that law Indian bingo halls expanded into casinos with Vegas-style gaming.
Bingo is less profitable than slot machines and table games, so over the years some casinos shut down their bingo operations leaving fewer bingo halls today.
