An abundance has been written in the papers recently concerning the bingo industry being hurt as a consequence of the smoking ban in the United Kingdom. Conditions have become so bad that in Scotland the Bingo industry has requested big aid to help keep the industry from going bankrupt. However does the online version of this classic game provide a lifeline, or might it never compare to its land based equivalent?

Bingo is an ancient game generally played by the "blue rinse" generation. Although the game of late had witnessed a recent return in acceptance with younger men and women deciding to visit the bingo parlours in place of the bars on a Saturday night. This is all about to be reversed with the enacting of the smoking ban across United Kingdom.

Players will no longer be able to smoke while marking numbers. Beginning in the summer of '07 every public location will no longer be permitted to allow cigarettes in their venues and this includes Bingo halls, one of the most popular locations where players enjoy smoking.

The results of the anti cigarette law can already be seen in Scotland where cigarettes are already not allowed in the bingo halls. Players have dropped and the business is literally fighting for to stay alive. But where did all the players go? Obviously they haven't forgotten this classic game?

The answer is on the web. Players know that they can enjoy bingo using their computer while enjoying a beverage and cigarette and in the end, enjoy huge prizes. This is a recent anomaly and has timed itself almost perfectly with the anti smoking law.

Of course wagering on online can never replace the collective aspect of heading down to the bingo parlor, but for a group of men and women the rules have left many bingo enthusiasts with little option.
