Much has been talked in the press recently concerning the bingo industry being hit as a consequence of the cigarette ban in England. Conditions have become so awful that in Scotland the Bingo industry has called for massive aid to assist in keeping the businesses afloat. But can the online variation of this quintessential game present a escape, or might it not compare to its real life kin?

Bingo is an ancient game usually played by the "blue haired" generation. Although the game lately had undergone a recent resurgence in popularity with younger people deciding to visit the bingo halls in place of the clubs on a Friday night. All this is about to change with the enforcement of the cigarette ban throughout Britain.

Players will no longer be able to smoke at the same time marking off their numbers. From the summer of 2007 every public area will not be allowed to permit cigarettes in their locations and this includes Bingo parlours, one of the most favorite locations where players enjoy smoking.

The outcome of the anti smoking law can already be felt in Scotland where cigarettes are already not allowed in the bingo parlours. Numbers have plunged and the business is beyond a doubt struggling for its life. But where did all the players go? Surely they have not cast aside this ancient game?

The answer is online. Players know that they can bet on bingo in front of their computer while enjoying a drink and cigarette and in the end, enjoy monstrous cash rewards. This is a recent development and has timed itself just about perfectly with the anti smoking law.

Of course betting on online is unlikely to replace the social portion of heading down to the bingo hall, but for a demographic of players the rules have left a lot of bingo players with no option.
