An abundance has been written in the press recently about the bingo industry being hurt as a result of the smoking ban in England. Things have grown so poor that in Scotland the Bingo industry has requested massive tax cuts to help keep the businesses from going bankrupt. However does the net variation of this quintessential game offer a salvation, or will it not compare to its bricks and mortar opposite?

Bingo is an classic game usually enjoyed by the "blue rinse" generation. For all that the game recently had seen a recent comeback in appeal with younger people opting to go to the bingo halls instead of the bars on a weekend. This is all about to be reversed with the enacting of the cigarette ban all over Britain.

Players will no longer be allowed to puff on cigarettes while dabbing numbers. Beginning in the summer of '07 every public area will not be permitted to allow smoking in their buildings and this includes Bingo parlours, one of the most common areas where people like to puff on cigarettes.

The effects of the anti cigarette law can already be seen in Scotland where cigarettes are already forbidden in the bingo parlours. Numbers have dropped and the business is beyond a doubt struggling for to stay alive. But where have all the players gone? Of course they have not cast aside this enduring game?

The answer is online. Players realise that they can gamble on bingo in front of their computer whilst enjoying a beverage and cigarette and still have a chance at huge cash rewards. This is a recent development and has timed itself bordering on perfect with the anti smoking law.

Of course gambling on online can never replace the communal part of going over to the bingo hall, but for a group of players the rules have left a number of bingo players with little alternative.
