Much has been stated in the papers recently regarding the bingo industry struggling because of the anti cigarette law in England. Conditions have become so bad that in Scotland the Bingo industry has asked for massive tax cuts to help keep the industry from going bankrupt. However does the net version of this quintessential game provide a reprieve, or will it never compare to its land based relative?

Bingo is an ancient game historically played by the "blue haired" generation. For all that the game lately had undergone a recent increase in popularity with younger members of society deciding to visit the bingo parlors in place of the discos on a Friday night. This is all about to get flipped on its head with the introduction of the anti cigarette law around United Kingdom.

No more will enthusiasts be allowed to puff on cigarettes while marking off their numbers. From the summer of '07 all public places will no longer be allowed to permit smoking in their locations and this includes Bingo parlors, one of the most favored places where many people enjoy smoking.

The effects of the anti cigarette law can already be looked at in Scotland where smoking is already not permitted in the bingo halls. Numbers have plunged and the industry is beyond a doubt fighting for to stay alive. But where did all the players go? Surely they haven't forgotten this enduring game?

The answer is online. Gamblers are now realizing that they can wager on bingo in front of their computer at the same time enjoying a drink and cig and in the end, have a chance at huge prizes. This is a recent development and has timed itself bordering on perfect with the anti smoking law.

Of course playing online can never replace the communal part of heading over to the bingo parlour, but for a group of people the governing edicts have left a good many bingo players with no option.
