A lot has been talked in the press not long ago concerning the bingo industry struggling as a consequence of the smoking ban in the UK. Things have grown so bad that in Scotland the Bingo industry has called for big tax cuts to help keep the businesses from going bankrupt. However does the internet variation of this quintessential game offer a reprieve, or will it in no way compare to its bricks and mortar equivalent?

Bingo is an familiar game normally played by the "blue haired" generation. In any case the game recently had experienced a recent return in popularity with younger members of society deciding to visit the bingo parlours in place of the bars on a Friday night. All this is about to be reversed with the enforcement of the anti smoking law around UK.

Players will no longer be allowed to smoke whilst marking numbers. Beginning in the summer of '07 all public locations will no longer be allowed to permit cigarettes in their venues and this includes Bingo parlours, which are possibly the most common locations where folks like to puff on cigarettes.

The outcome of the anti cigarette law can already be looked at in Scotland where cigarettes are already illegal in the bingo halls. Numbers have plunged and the industry is beyond a doubt fighting for its life. But where have all the players gone? Obviously they haven't abandoned this ancient game?

The answer is on the web. Players know that they can play bingo using their computer at the same time enjoying a cocktail and smoke and still enjoy massive prizes. This is a recent anomaly and has timed itself bordering on perfect with the ban on cigarettes.

Of course wagering on on the internet is unlikely to replace the social portion of going down to the bingo parlor, but for a group of people the rules have left a lot of bingo players with no choice.
