An abundance has been talked in the papers recently concerning the bingo industry being hurt because of the smoking ban in the UK. Conditions have become so poor that in Scotland the Bingo industry has demanded big aid to assist in keeping the businesses from going bankrupt. However will the web version of this traditional game offer a reprieve, or might it not compare to its bricks and mortar kin?

Bingo is an age old game normally played by the "blue haired" generation. However the game recently had seen a recent return in acceptance with younger people opting to go to the bingo parlors in place of the discos on a weekend. This is all about to be reversed with the enforcement of the anti cigarette law around UK.

Players will no longer be permitted to puff on cigarettes while dabbing numbers. Starting in the summer of '07 all public locations will not be permitted to allow smoking in their venues and this includes Bingo parlours, one of the most popular areas where people enjoy smoking.

The effects of the cigarette ban can already be looked at in Scotland where cigarettes are already barred in the bingo parlors. Profits have plummeted and the industry is beyond a doubt fighting for its life. But where did the players go? Obviously they have not cast aside this established game?

The answer is on the internet. Players are now realizing that they can gamble on bingo in front of their computer whilst enjoying a cocktail and fag and in the end, enjoy monstrous prizes. This is a recent development and has happened bordering on perfect with the ban on cigarettes.

Of course betting on on the net is unlikely to replace the social part of going over to the bingo hall, but for a demographic of players the rules have left a lot of bingo enthusiasts with little option.
