An abundance has been reported in the papers recently regarding the bingo industry singing the blues because of the anti smoking law in Britain. Conditions have grown so bad that in Scotland the Bingo industry has demanded big tax breaks to help keep the industry from going bankrupt. But will the web version of this quintessential game offer a escape, or might it not compare to its bricks and mortar relative?

Bingo is an established game usually enjoyed by the "blue rinse" generation. For all that the game of late had undergone a recent return in acceptance with younger people opting to visit the bingo parlors rather than the discos on a Friday night. This is all about to be reversed with the enacting of the cigarette ban throughout England and Wales.

Players will no longer be able to puff on cigarettes whilst dabbing numbers. Starting in the summer of '07 all public areas will not be allowed to permit smoking in their venues and this includes Bingo parlors, one of the most favorite locations where folks enjoy smoking.

The outcome of the anti cigarette law can already be looked at in Scotland where cigarettes are already forbidden in the bingo halls. Profits have plunged and the business is absolutely struggling for its life. But where did all the players go? Obviously they have not cast aside this ancient game?

The answer is on the web. Players realize that they can participate in bingo in front of their computer at the same time enjoying a beverage and smoke and in the end, enjoy massive cash rewards. This is a recent development and has timed itself bordering on perfect with the ban on cigarettes.

Of course wagering on on the web is unlikely to replace the collective aspect of heading down to the bingo parlor, but for a demographic of people the rules have left many bingo players with little choice.
