An abundance has been talked in the press recently regarding the bingo industry singing the blues as a consequence of the cigarette ban in Britain. Conditions have grown so poor that in Scotland the Bingo industry has requested huge tax cuts to assist in keeping the industry afloat. However will the online version of this quintessential game provide a reprieve, or might it never compare to its bricks and mortar peer?

Bingo has been an age old game normally played by the "blue rinse" generation. In any case the game lately had seen a recent return in appeal with younger people deciding to hit the bingo halls in place of the clubs on a Saturday night. All this is about to get flipped on its head with the enacting of the anti cigarette law throughout UK.

No more will enthusiasts be permitted to puff on cigarettes whilst marking off their numbers. From the summer of '07 all public areas will not be allowed to permit cigarettes in their venues and this includes Bingo halls, which are possibly the most popular locations where many people enjoy smoking.

The results of the cigarette ban can already be looked at in Scotland where cigarettes are already forbidden in the bingo parlours. Profits have dropped and the industry is literally fighting for to stay alive. But where have the players gone? Surely they haven't deserted this enduring game?

The answer is on the internet. People know that they can bet on bingo using their computer while enjoying a beverage and cigarette and in the end, have a chance at huge jackpots. This is a recent phenomenon and has timed itself bordering on perfect with the anti smoking law.

Of course gambling on on the net is unlikely to replace the communal portion of heading over to the bingo hall, but for a group of people the law has left a lot of bingo enthusiasts with no alternative.
