Much has been written in the press just a while ago regarding the bingo industry singing the blues as a consequence of the anti cigarette law in Britain. Things have become so bad that in Scotland the Bingo industry has demanded big aid to assist in keeping the businesses afloat. However will the online version of this traditional game provide a salvation, or will it in no way compare to its bricks and mortar relative?

Bingo has been an classic game usually played by the "blue rinse" generation. Although the game recently had experienced a recent return in acceptance with younger members of society deciding to visit the bingo parlors instead of the discos on a weekend. All this is about to change with the introduction of the cigarette ban all over Britain.

Players will no longer be able to puff on cigarettes whilst marking off their numbers. From the summer of '07 all public locations will no longer be permitted to allow cigarettes in their venues and this includes Bingo parlors, which are possibly the most favored areas where players enjoy smoking.

The effects of the smoking ban can already be looked at in Scotland where cigarettes are already barred in the bingo halls. Profits have plummeted and the business is absolutely fighting for to stay alive. But where have all the players gone? Of course they have not cast aside this age old game?

The answer is on the web. People know that they can enjoy bingo using their computer whilst enjoying a beverage and fag and still enjoy big jackpots. This is a recent development and has timed itself bordering on perfect with the ban on smoking.

Of course betting on on the internet is unlikely to replace the communal part of heading over to the bingo parlour, but for a demographic of players the law has left a good many bingo enthusiasts with little option.
