Much has been written in the press not long ago concerning the bingo industry being hit because of the cigarette ban in England. Things have become so poor that in Scotland the Bingo industry has requested big tax cuts to help keep the businesses alive. However can the internet adaptation of this quintessential game provide a escape, or might it in no way compare to its land based equivalent?

Bingo is an established game normally enjoyed by the "blue rinse" generation. Although the game of late had seen a recent return in popularity with younger members of society deciding to go to the bingo parlours in place of the discos on a Friday night. All this is about to change with the legislating of the smoking ban around England and Wales.

Players will no longer be allowed to smoke at the same time dabbing numbers. Beginning in the summer of '07 all public areas will not be allowed to permit cigarettes in their locations and this includes Bingo parlours, one of the most favored locations where people like to puff on cigarettes.

The effects of the anti smoking law can already be looked at in Scotland where smoking is already not allowed in the bingo halls. Players have plummeted and the industry is literally fighting for to stay alive. But where have all the players gone? Certainly they have not forgotten this classic game?

The answer is online. People are now realizing that they can play bingo from their computer at the same time enjoying a beer and cig and in the end, enjoy huge prizes. This is a recent development and has timed itself bordering on perfect with the anti cigarette law.

Of course betting on on the net could never replace the collective portion of heading over to the bingo parlour, but for a demographic of men and women the governing edicts have left a good many bingo players with no choice.
