A lot has been reported in the press just a while ago regarding the bingo industry being hurt because of the smoking ban in the United Kingdom. Things have grown so awful that in Scotland the Bingo industry has asked for big tax cuts to help keep the industry from going bankrupt. However does the net version of this quintessential game provide a escape, or will it never compare to its bricks and mortar peer?

Bingo has been an familiar game historically enjoyed by the "blue haired" generation. For all that the game recently had undergone a recent return in appeal with younger men and women opting to visit the bingo halls in place of the discos on a Saturday night. This is all about to be destroyed with the introduction of the smoking ban throughout England and Wales.

No longer will enthusiasts be able to puff on cigarettes while dabbing numbers. Starting in the summer of '07 all public places will no longer be allowed to permit smoking in their buildings and this includes Bingo parlours, one of the most common locations where players enjoy smoking.

The results of the smoking ban can already be felt in Scotland where cigarettes are already illegal in the bingo halls. Numbers have plummeted and the business is literally struggling for to stay alive. But where have all the players gone? Obviously they have not cast aside this enduring game?

The answer is on the web. People are now realizing that they can bet on bingo from their computer whilst enjoying a beverage and cigarette and in the end, enjoy monstrous prizes. This is a recent development and has happened just about perfectly with the ban on smoking.

Of course playing on the net is unlikely to replace the collective portion of going over to the bingo parlour, but for a demographic of people the law has left a number of bingo players with little alternative.
