Much has been talked in the press just a while ago regarding the bingo industry being hit because of the anti smoking law in the United Kingdom. Things have become so poor that in Scotland the Bingo industry has called for huge tax breaks to assist in keeping the businesses afloat. But can the internet version of this traditional game offer a reprieve, or might it in no way compare to its real life peer?

Bingo has been an established game generally enjoyed by the "blue rinse" generation. Although the game lately had undergone a recent increase in acceptance with younger men and women opting to hit the bingo halls rather than the discos on a Saturday night. All this is about to be reversed with the enacting of the anti smoking law throughout Britain.

Players will no longer be allowed to smoke while dabbing numbers. From the summer of '07 every public place will no longer be permitted to allow smoking in their venues and this includes Bingo parlours, one of the most common areas where folks like to smoke.

The outcome of the anti smoking law can already be felt in Scotland where smoking is already not allowed in the bingo halls. Numbers have plunged and the business is literally fighting for its life. But where have the players gone? Obviously they haven't forgotten this familiar game?

The answer is on the internet. Gamblers realize that they can wager on bingo using their computer at the same time enjoying a beverage and fag and still enjoy big jackpots. This is a recent phenomenon and has timed itself bordering on perfect with the anti cigarette law.

Of course wagering on on the internet is unlikely to replace the social part of heading over to the bingo parlour, but for a group of players the governing edicts have left a good many bingo players with little option.
