A lot has been reported in the press just a while ago regarding the bingo industry being hit as a consequence of the cigarette ban in Britain. Things have grown so bad that in Scotland the Bingo industry has requested massive aid to help keep the industry from going bankrupt. However will the web adaptation of this traditional game provide a salvation, or will it not compare to its land based opposite?

Bingo has been an established game normally enjoyed by the "blue rinse" generation. In any case the game recently had witnessed a recent comeback in acceptance with younger people deciding to visit the bingo parlours in place of the clubs on a Saturday night. All this is about to be reversed with the introduction of the anti cigarette law all over England and Wales.

Players will no longer be allowed to smoke at the same time marking off their numbers. From the summer of 2007 every public location will no longer be permitted to allow cigarettes in their venues and this includes Bingo parlours, which are possibly the most favored locations where people like to puff on cigarettes.

The effects of the smoking ban can already be felt in Scotland where smoking is already barred in the bingo parlors. Numbers have plunged and the business is literally struggling for its life. But where have the players gone? Certainly they have not deserted this familiar game?

The answer is on the internet. Gamblers are now realizing that they can participate in bingo from their computer whilst enjoying a drink and smoke and still have a chance at big cash rewards. This is a recent anomaly and has happened bordering on perfect with the ban on cigarettes.

Of course playing on the web will never replace the communal part of heading over to the bingo parlour, but for a group of men and women the law has left many bingo players with little option.
