An abundance has been talked in the press recently concerning the bingo industry singing the blues because of the smoking ban in England. Things have grown so bad that in Scotland the Bingo industry has requested huge tax breaks to help keep the businesses alive. But can the online version of this classic game provide a lifeline, or might it never compare to its bricks and mortar opposite?

Bingo is an established game generally enjoyed by the "blue haired" generation. For all that the game lately had witnessed a recent comeback in acceptance with younger people opting to visit the bingo parlors in place of the clubs on a Saturday night. This is all about to get flipped on its head with the legislating of the cigarette ban all over UK.

Players will no longer be able to puff on cigarettes while marking off their numbers. From the summer of '07 all public areas will no longer be allowed to permit cigarettes in their venues and this includes Bingo parlours, one of the most favored places where players like to smoke.

The outcome of the anti smoking law can already be observed in Scotland where cigarettes are already not permitted in the bingo parlors. Profits have plummeted and the business is beyond a doubt struggling for its life. But where have the players gone? Surely they have not given up on this classic game?

The answer is on the net. People know that they can wager on bingo from their computer at the same time enjoying a cocktail and fag and in the end, have a chance at massive cash rewards. This is a recent development and has happened almost perfectly with the ban on cigarettes.

Of course gambling on online can never replace the social portion of going down to the bingo hall, but for a group of players the governing edicts have left a lot of bingo enthusiasts with no choice.
