A lot has been reported in the press just a while ago regarding the bingo industry being hurt because of the anti smoking law in England. Conditions have become so poor that in Scotland the Bingo industry has asked for massive tax cuts to assist in keeping the businesses from going bankrupt. But can the web variation of this quintessential game offer a escape, or might it never compare to its land based kin?

Bingo has been an ancient game generally played by the "blue rinse" generation. Although the game recently had witnessed a recent comeback in appeal with younger people opting to visit the bingo parlours in place of the bars on a Friday night. All this is about to get flipped on its head with the enforcement of the cigarette ban across UK.

No longer will enthusiasts be permitted to puff on cigarettes while marking numbers. Starting in the summer of 2007 all public places will not be allowed to permit smoking in their locations and this includes Bingo parlours, one of the most common locations where people like to puff on cigarettes.

The results of the anti cigarette law can already be looked at in Scotland where cigarettes are already not allowed in the bingo parlors. Numbers have dropped and the business is absolutely struggling for its life. But where did all the players go? Of course they have not cast aside this established game?

The answer is online. Players know that they can play bingo from their computer whilst enjoying a drink and cigarette and in the end, enjoy big jackpots. This is a recent development and has timed itself bordering on perfect with the ban on cigarettes.

Of course betting on on the internet could never replace the social aspect of going down to the bingo parlour, but for a demographic of men and women the governing edicts have left a good many bingo enthusiasts with no choice.
