An abundance has been written in the papers not long ago concerning the bingo industry being hurt as a consequence of the anti cigarette law in the UK. Conditions have become so bad that in Scotland the Bingo industry has asked for big aid to help keep the industry alive. However does the internet version of this classic game offer a escape, or might it not compare to its land based opposite?

Bingo is an enduring game generally played by the "blue haired" generation. For all that the game lately had witnessed a recent resurgence in acceptance with younger members of society opting to go to the bingo parlours rather than the bars on a Saturday night. All this is about to be reversed with the enacting of the cigarette ban throughout UK.

No longer will gamblers be able to puff on cigarettes whilst marking off their numbers. From the summer of 2007 all public areas will not be allowed to permit cigarettes in their locations and this includes Bingo halls, which are possibly the most favorite places where people like to puff on cigarettes.

The effects of the cigarette ban can already be felt in Scotland where smoking is already prohibited in the bingo parlours. Numbers have plummeted and the business is absolutely struggling for its life. But where did the players go? Of course they haven't cast aside this enduring game?

The answer is on the internet. Players know that they can bet on bingo using their computer at the same time enjoying a drink and cig and still enjoy huge jackpots. This is a recent phenomenon and has timed itself bordering on perfect with the anti cigarette law.

Of course wagering on online is unlikely to replace the communal part of going down to the bingo hall, but for a demographic of players the law has left many bingo players with no option.
