Much has been talked in the press not long ago about the bingo industry being hurt as a consequence of the cigarette ban in the UK. Conditions have grown so bad that in Scotland the Bingo industry has called for big tax breaks to help keep the industry alive. However will the internet variation of this quintessential game present a salvation, or will it in no way compare to its land based equivalent?

Bingo has been an established game historically played by the "blue haired" generation. For all that the game lately had seen a recent comeback in acceptance with younger members of society opting to visit the bingo parlours rather than the discos on a Friday night. All this is about to be reversed with the enforcement of the smoking ban across United Kingdom.

No more will enthusiasts be permitted to smoke whilst dabbing numbers. Beginning in the summer of 2007 every public area will not be permitted to allow smoking in their buildings and this includes Bingo parlours, which are possibly the most favorite locations where players enjoy smoking.

The effects of the cigarette ban can already be seen in Scotland where smoking is already forbidden in the bingo halls. Numbers have dropped and the business is literally struggling for to stay alive. But where have all the players gone? Of course they haven't deserted this classic game?

The answer is on the internet. Players realise that they can gamble on bingo from their computer at the same time enjoying a beer and cigarette and in the end, have a chance at massive prizes. This is a recent anomaly and has happened almost perfectly with the anti smoking law.

Of course betting on on the internet can never replace the social aspect of heading over to the bingo hall, but for a demographic of players the rules have left a number of bingo enthusiasts with little alternative.
