Much has been stated in the press not long ago regarding the bingo industry being hit as a result of the anti smoking law in England. Things have grown so poor that in Scotland the Bingo industry has asked for big tax cuts to assist in keeping the industry alive. However will the internet variation of this quintessential game provide a lifeline, or will it never compare to its land based peer?

Bingo is an classic game usually played by the "blue haired" generation. For all that the game of late had undergone a recent return in acceptance with younger members of society deciding to go to the bingo parlours instead of the clubs on a Friday night. All this is about to be destroyed with the enacting of the anti cigarette law across Britain.

Players will no longer be permitted to smoke at the same time marking numbers. From the summer of '07 all public locations will no longer be permitted to allow smoking in their locations and this includes Bingo parlors, which are possibly the most common areas where folks like to puff on cigarettes.

The outcome of the anti smoking law can already be seen in Scotland where cigarettes are already illegal in the bingo parlours. Numbers have plunged and the industry is literally struggling for to stay alive. But where have the players gone? Certainly they haven't abandoned this familiar game?

The answer is on the net. People know that they can play bingo using their computer at the same time enjoying a cocktail and fag and still have a chance at big jackpots. This is a recent development and has happened bordering on perfect with the ban on smoking.

Of course playing on the web is unlikely to replace the social aspect of going over to the bingo parlor, but for a demographic of people the rules have left a lot of bingo players with no alternative.
