A lot has been stated in the press not long ago regarding the bingo industry struggling as a result of the cigarette ban in Britain. Things have grown so poor that in Scotland the Bingo industry has requested massive aid to assist in keeping the businesses from going bankrupt. But does the net variation of this traditional game offer a reprieve, or might it never compare to its land based relative?

Bingo has been an age old game historically enjoyed by the "blue rinse" generation. Although the game recently had seen a recent comeback in acceptance with younger members of society deciding to hit the bingo halls rather than the clubs on a Friday night. All this is about to be reversed with the legislating of the anti smoking law around United Kingdom.

Players will no longer be able to smoke at the same time marking numbers. Starting in the summer of '07 every public location will not be permitted to allow cigarettes in their venues and this includes Bingo halls, one of the most favored areas where people enjoy smoking.

The results of the anti smoking law can already be looked at in Scotland where smoking is already banned in the bingo parlors. Profits have plunged and the industry is absolutely fighting for its life. But where have the players gone? Surely they have not abandoned this enduring game?

The answer is on the internet. Players know that they can gamble on bingo in front of their computer at the same time enjoying a beverage and smoke and still enjoy big jackpots. This is a recent phenomenon and has happened bordering on perfect with the ban on cigarettes.

Of course wagering on on the internet is unlikely to replace the collective aspect of going down to the bingo parlour, but for a group of players the law has left a number of bingo enthusiasts with no option.
