Much has been reported in the papers just a while ago concerning the bingo industry being hit as a result of the anti cigarette law in Britain. Conditions have grown so poor that in Scotland the Bingo industry has asked for huge aid to assist in keeping the businesses alive. But can the online variation of this classic game present a reprieve, or might it not compare to its real life opposite?

Bingo has been an established game generally played by the "blue rinse" generation. In any case the game of late had experienced a recent return in acceptance with younger men and women deciding to hit the bingo halls in place of the discos on a weekend. This is all about to change with the legislating of the anti cigarette law around Britain.

No longer will gamblers be able to puff on cigarettes whilst marking off their numbers. From the summer of 2007 all public areas will not be allowed to permit smoking in their locations and this includes Bingo parlours, which are possibly the most favored locations where people enjoy smoking.

The results of the anti cigarette law can already be observed in Scotland where cigarettes are already barred in the bingo halls. Numbers have plunged and the industry is literally fighting for to stay alive. But where have all the players gone? Certainly they haven't given up on this established game?

The answer is online. Gamblers realize that they can bet on bingo in front of their computer at the same time enjoying a drink and cig and still have a chance at massive jackpots. This is a recent phenomenon and has happened bordering on perfect with the ban on smoking.

Of course gambling on on the web will never replace the social portion of going down to the bingo hall, but for a group of players the law has left many bingo players with little alternative.
