Much has been reported in the papers just a while ago about the bingo industry being hit because of the cigarette ban in the United Kingdom. Things have become so awful that in Scotland the Bingo industry has asked for big tax cuts to assist in keeping the industry from going bankrupt. But does the internet variation of this classic game provide a lifeline, or might it in no way compare to its land based kin?

Bingo has been an ancient game historically played by the "blue rinse" generation. Although the game recently had undergone a recent increase in acceptance with younger men and women opting to go to the bingo parlors in place of the bars on a weekend. All this is about to be reversed with the enforcement of the smoking ban all over England and Wales.

Players will no longer be able to smoke while dabbing numbers. From the summer of '07 every public location will not be allowed to permit smoking in their locations and this includes Bingo halls, one of the most favored locations where players enjoy smoking.

The outcome of the anti smoking law can already be seen in Scotland where smoking is already banned in the bingo parlours. Players have dropped and the business is absolutely fighting for to stay alive. But where have all the players gone? Obviously they have not given up on this familiar game?

The answer is on the net. Players realise that they can play bingo in front of their computer while enjoying a drink and cig and still enjoy big cash rewards. This is a recent anomaly and has timed itself almost perfectly with the ban on smoking.

Of course wagering on online is unlikely to replace the collective part of heading down to the bingo parlor, but for a group of players the rules have left many bingo enthusiasts with little choice.
