A lot has been reported in the press just a while ago regarding the bingo industry being hurt as a consequence of the anti smoking law in Britain. Things have grown so awful that in Scotland the Bingo industry has requested massive tax breaks to help keep the businesses afloat. However does the net adaptation of this traditional game present a salvation, or will it not compare to its bricks and mortar opposite?

Bingo is an ancient game generally enjoyed by the "blue haired" generation. In any case the game of late had undergone a recent increase in popularity with younger members of society opting to hit the bingo parlors rather than the bars on a weekend. This is all about to change with the enforcement of the anti cigarette law all over United Kingdom.

No longer will gamblers be permitted to smoke while dabbing numbers. From the summer of 2007 all public places will not be permitted to allow cigarettes in their buildings and this includes Bingo parlors, one of the most favorite locations where players enjoy smoking.

The outcome of the cigarette ban can already be looked at in Scotland where smoking is already prohibited in the bingo parlours. Profits have dropped and the business is absolutely struggling for to stay alive. But where did all the players go? Of course they haven’t cast aside this established game?

The answer is on the net. People are now realizing that they can gamble on bingo using their computer whilst enjoying a beer and fag and still enjoy huge cash rewards. This is a recent phenomenon and has happened bordering on perfect with the anti smoking law.

Of course wagering on online is unlikely to replace the collective part of heading over to the bingo parlor, but for a group of people the governing edicts have left many bingo players with no alternative.
