A lot has been written in the press recently regarding the bingo industry being hurt as a consequence of the anti smoking law in England. Conditions have grown so awful that in Scotland the Bingo industry has asked for huge aid to help keep the industry from going bankrupt. However can the online adaptation of this classic game offer a reprieve, or might it never compare to its land based peer?

Bingo has been an ancient game generally enjoyed by the "blue haired" generation. Although the game lately had undergone a recent increase in popularity with younger men and women deciding to go to the bingo parlors instead of the discos on a Saturday night. All this is about to be reversed with the legislating of the cigarette ban across Britain.

No longer will gamblers be able to smoke at the same time marking off their numbers. From the summer of 2007 all public areas will no longer be allowed to permit smoking in their venues and this includes Bingo parlours, which are possibly the most common areas where people enjoy smoking.

The outcome of the smoking ban can already be seen in Scotland where smoking is already forbidden in the bingo parlors. Profits have plunged and the business is beyond a doubt struggling for its life. But where have the players gone? Surely they have not given up on this age old game?

The answer is on the internet. Players know that they can bet on bingo from their computer at the same time enjoying a cocktail and fag and still enjoy massive prizes. This is a recent development and has timed itself bordering on perfect with the ban on smoking.

Of course betting on online can never replace the social portion of going down to the bingo hall, but for a demographic of players the rules have left a lot of bingo players with little option.
