Much has been written in the press recently about the bingo industry singing the blues as a result of the anti smoking law in England. Conditions have become so bad that in Scotland the Bingo industry has called for big tax cuts to assist in keeping the industry from going bankrupt. But will the internet adaptation of this classic game offer a salvation, or might it never compare to its land based relative?

Bingo has been an familiar game normally played by the "blue haired" generation. However the game recently had undergone a recent increase in appeal with younger people opting to visit the bingo halls in place of the discos on a Friday night. All this is about to be reversed with the enacting of the anti cigarette law all over United Kingdom.

Players will no longer be permitted to puff on cigarettes at the same time dabbing numbers. From the summer of 2007 all public areas will not be allowed to permit cigarettes in their buildings and this includes Bingo parlours, which are possibly the most popular areas where people enjoy smoking.

The effects of the cigarette ban can already be seen in Scotland where cigarettes are already prohibited in the bingo parlours. Numbers have plummeted and the business is beyond a doubt fighting for its life. But where have the players gone? Surely they haven't given up on this enduring game?

The answer is online. People know that they can bet on bingo from their computer at the same time enjoying a beverage and fag and in the end, enjoy big prizes. This is a recent phenomenon and has happened bordering on perfect with the anti cigarette law.

Of course playing on the net is unlikely to replace the collective part of going over to the bingo parlour, but for a demographic of players the law has left a good many bingo players with little choice.
