Might the Anti Cigarette Law in England Take Bingo Enthusiasts On to the Net?

An abundance has been talked in the press not long ago concerning the bingo industry being hurt as a consequence of the smoking ban in England. Conditions have become so awful that in Scotland the Bingo industry has asked for big aid to help keep the businesses from going bankrupt. But will the online adaptation of this quintessential game provide a escape, or might it in no way compare to its real life opposite?

Bingo is an established game normally enjoyed by the "blue haired" generation. Although the game of late had witnessed a recent resurgence in appeal with younger people deciding to go to the bingo parlours in place of the discos on a weekend. This is all about to be destroyed with the legislating of the anti cigarette law around Britain.

No more will players be permitted to smoke while marking numbers. From the summer of 2007 all public locations will no longer be permitted to allow cigarettes in their locations and this includes Bingo parlors, one of the most common locations where many people like to puff on cigarettes.

The results of the anti smoking law can already be observed in Scotland where smoking is already barred in the bingo halls. Profits have plunged and the business is literally struggling for its life. But where did the players go? Surely they haven’t forgotten this established game?

The answer is on the net. Gamblers are now realizing that they can enjoy bingo in front of their computer whilst enjoying a beer and fag and still have a chance at huge jackpots. This is a recent anomaly and has timed itself just about perfectly with the anti smoking law.

Of course playing on the web is unlikely to replace the communal portion of heading over to the bingo parlor, but for a group of men and women the governing edicts have left a good many bingo enthusiasts with no alternative.
