Might the Anti Cigarette Law in Britain Drive Bingo Enthusiasts On to the Internet?

A lot has been reported in the papers not long ago regarding the bingo industry being hurt as a consequence of the anti cigarette law in England. Things have become so poor that in Scotland the Bingo industry has asked for huge tax cuts to assist in keeping the industry alive. However will the net version of this traditional game present a lifeline, or might it not compare to its real life opposite?

Bingo is an familiar game generally enjoyed by the "blue haired" generation. In any case the game recently had experienced a recent increase in appeal with younger members of society opting to hit the bingo halls instead of the clubs on a Friday night. All this is about to be destroyed with the introduction of the anti cigarette law around United Kingdom.

No more will enthusiasts be allowed to smoke whilst marking numbers. From the summer of 2007 all public locations will no longer be permitted to allow smoking in their buildings and this includes Bingo parlors, one of the most common locations where players like to smoke.

The outcome of the anti smoking law can already be looked at in Scotland where cigarettes are already illegal in the bingo parlors. Players have plunged and the business is beyond a doubt struggling for to stay alive. But where have all the players gone? Certainly they have not abandoned this established game?

The answer is on the net. People realise that they can enjoy bingo from their computer at the same time enjoying a beverage and fag and in the end, have a chance at monstrous prizes. This is a recent anomaly and has happened bordering on perfect with the ban on smoking.

Of course gambling on on the net is unlikely to replace the collective part of going down to the bingo parlor, but for a group of players the rules have left a number of bingo enthusiasts with little choice.
