Much has been stated in the papers not long ago regarding the bingo industry singing the blues as a result of the anti cigarette law in the United Kingdom. Things have grown so poor that in Scotland the Bingo industry has asked for huge tax cuts to assist in keeping the businesses from going bankrupt. However will the internet adaptation of this traditional game present a lifeline, or might it never compare to its bricks and mortar opposite?

Bingo is an classic game usually played by the "blue rinse" generation. However the game lately had experienced a recent resurgence in acceptance with younger men and women opting to visit the bingo parlors in place of the discos on a Friday night. All this is about to get flipped on its head with the legislating of the smoking ban across UK.

No more will players be allowed to puff on cigarettes while marking off their numbers. Beginning in the summer of '07 every public area will no longer be permitted to allow cigarettes in their buildings and this includes Bingo parlours, which are possibly the most favorite areas where players like to puff on cigarettes.

The outcome of the anti smoking law can already be felt in Scotland where smoking is already prohibited in the bingo parlors. Profits have plunged and the industry is literally struggling for to stay alive. But where did the players go? Of course they have not given up on this enduring game?

The answer is online. People realize that they can play bingo from their computer while enjoying a beer and cig and in the end, enjoy massive jackpots. This is a recent anomaly and has timed itself just about perfectly with the anti smoking law.

Of course betting on online is unlikely to replace the collective portion of heading down to the bingo hall, but for a demographic of people the governing edicts have left a lot of bingo players with no choice.
