Another Oklahoma tribal casino plans to offer blackjack card games Tuesday. The Quapaw Casino in Miami reached an agreement with the federal government allowing the games.

The card games are allowed under compacts between tribes and the state after Oklahoma voters approved the expansion of Indian gaming last November.

Just recently, the Cherokee Nation started dealing black jack at its casino in Catoosa.

The state anticipates it will make about $71-million a year off of the deal, with all of it going to education.
