An abundance has been written in the press recently regarding the bingo industry singing the blues as a result of the anti cigarette law in the UK. Conditions have become so poor that in Scotland the Bingo industry has demanded huge aid to help keep the businesses alive. But will the net variation of this traditional game offer a salvation, or will it never compare to its bricks and mortar peer?

Bingo is an classic game normally enjoyed by the "blue rinse" generation. For all that the game of late had undergone a recent resurgence in appeal with younger people opting to visit the bingo parlors instead of the bars on a Saturday night. This is all about to get flipped on its head with the introduction of the cigarette ban around England and Wales.

Players will no longer be allowed to smoke whilst marking numbers. Beginning in the summer of '07 every public place will not be allowed to permit cigarettes in their locations and this includes Bingo halls, one of the most favored locations where players enjoy smoking.

The results of the anti smoking law can already be seen in Scotland where cigarettes are already banned in the bingo parlors. Numbers have plummeted and the business is beyond a doubt fighting for its life. But where have the players gone? Certainly they have not given up on this age old game?

The answer is on the internet. Players know that they can enjoy bingo from their computer at the same time enjoying a beverage and smoke and in the end, enjoy huge prizes. This is a recent anomaly and has timed itself just about perfectly with the anti cigarette law.

Of course gambling on on the internet is unlikely to replace the social aspect of heading over to the bingo parlour, but for a group of people the law has left a number of bingo players with no option.
