A lot has been reported in the papers just a while ago regarding the bingo industry being hurt because of the anti smoking law in Britain. Conditions have become so bad that in Scotland the Bingo industry has requested massive tax cuts to help keep the industry from going bankrupt. But will the internet adaptation of this classic game present a salvation, or might it in no way compare to its land based kin?

Bingo has been an age old game usually played by the "blue haired" generation. Although the game lately had seen a recent increase in acceptance with younger men and women opting to visit the bingo halls in place of the bars on a Saturday night. This is all about to change with the introduction of the cigarette ban throughout UK.

Players will no longer be allowed to puff on cigarettes whilst marking off their numbers. Starting in the summer of 2007 all public places will no longer be permitted to allow cigarettes in their locations and this includes Bingo parlors, one of the most popular places where players enjoy smoking.

The outcome of the anti smoking law can already be seen in Scotland where smoking is already forbidden in the bingo parlours. Players have dropped and the industry is literally fighting for to stay alive. But where have the players gone? Certainly they have not cast aside this enduring game?

The answer is online. Gamblers realise that they can enjoy bingo in front of their computer while enjoying a beer and cigarette and still enjoy big jackpots. This is a recent anomaly and has happened just about perfectly with the ban on smoking.

Of course playing on the web can never replace the communal part of heading over to the bingo parlour, but for a group of players the rules have left a good many bingo players with little alternative.
