An abundance has been talked in the press not long ago about the bingo industry singing the blues as a consequence of the anti cigarette law in Britain. Things have become so poor that in Scotland the Bingo industry has requested huge tax cuts to help keep the businesses from going bankrupt. However does the net variation of this quintessential game provide a salvation, or might it not compare to its bricks and mortar equivalent?

Bingo has been an ancient game generally played by the "blue haired" generation. However the game of late had experienced a recent return in popularity with younger people opting to hit the bingo halls instead of the discos on a weekend. All this is about to change with the legislating of the smoking ban around England and Wales.

No more will players be able to smoke at the same time marking numbers. Beginning in the summer of '07 every public location will no longer be allowed to permit smoking in their locations and this includes Bingo parlours, one of the most favorite places where folks like to smoke.

The effects of the smoking ban can already be felt in Scotland where cigarettes are already forbidden in the bingo halls. Profits have plummeted and the business is beyond a doubt struggling for its life. But where did the players go? Obviously they have not abandoned this familiar game?

The answer is on the net. People know that they can play bingo using their computer whilst enjoying a beverage and smoke and in the end, have a chance at monstrous prizes. This is a recent anomaly and has happened almost perfectly with the anti smoking law.

Of course wagering on on the internet will never replace the communal portion of heading over to the bingo hall, but for a demographic of players the governing edicts have left a lot of bingo enthusiasts with little alternative.
