Much has been reported in the papers recently regarding the bingo industry struggling as a result of the smoking ban in Britain. Things have grown so awful that in Scotland the Bingo industry has demanded huge aid to help keep the businesses from going bankrupt. However can the internet version of this classic game present a salvation, or might it never compare to its land based kin?

Bingo has been an age old game historically played by the "blue rinse" generation. In any case the game recently had witnessed a recent return in acceptance with younger people deciding to visit the bingo parlours in place of the discos on a Saturday night. This is all about to be destroyed with the legislating of the smoking ban around England and Wales.

Players will no longer be able to puff on cigarettes whilst dabbing numbers. Beginning in the summer of '07 every public area will no longer be allowed to permit cigarettes in their buildings and this includes Bingo parlors, one of the most favored locations where people enjoy smoking.

The effects of the anti smoking law can already be looked at in Scotland where smoking is already barred in the bingo parlors. Numbers have dropped and the business is literally struggling for its life. But where have all the players gone? Certainly they have not forgotten this age old game?

The answer is on the internet. Gamblers realise that they can bet on bingo in front of their computer at the same time enjoying a cocktail and smoke and in the end, have a chance at massive jackpots. This is a recent development and has happened just about perfectly with the anti cigarette law.

Of course betting on on the net is unlikely to replace the social aspect of heading over to the bingo hall, but for a demographic of men and women the rules have left a number of bingo enthusiasts with no option.
