An abundance has been written in the papers recently concerning the bingo industry struggling as a consequence of the cigarette ban in Britain. Conditions have grown so bad that in Scotland the Bingo industry has requested massive aid to help keep the industry from going bankrupt. But will the online version of this classic game present a escape, or might it in no way compare to its real life opposite?

Bingo has been an familiar game generally played by the "blue rinse" generation. Although the game recently had experienced a recent return in acceptance with younger men and women opting to go to the bingo parlors in place of the clubs on a Friday night. This is all about to be reversed with the enacting of the smoking ban across Britain.

Players will no longer be able to puff on cigarettes at the same time marking numbers. Beginning in the summer of 2007 all public locations will no longer be allowed to permit smoking in their buildings and this includes Bingo halls, which are possibly the most favored locations where many people like to smoke.

The results of the anti smoking law can already be looked at in Scotland where cigarettes are already not allowed in the bingo halls. Players have plummeted and the business is absolutely fighting for to stay alive. But where did all the players go? Certainly they haven’t deserted this classic game?

The answer is on the internet. Gamblers know that they can wager on bingo from their computer while enjoying a beverage and fag and in the end, have a chance at big jackpots. This is a recent development and has timed itself almost perfectly with the anti smoking law.

Of course playing online will never replace the collective part of heading over to the bingo hall, but for a demographic of men and women the law has left a lot of bingo players with no choice.
