An abundance has been talked in the press just a while ago about the bingo industry singing the blues as a consequence of the anti cigarette law in the United Kingdom. Things have grown so bad that in Scotland the Bingo industry has called for massive aid to help keep the businesses afloat. However will the web variation of this quintessential game offer a escape, or will it not compare to its bricks and mortar kin?

Bingo has been an familiar game usually played by the "blue rinse" generation. However the game of late had experienced a recent increase in appeal with younger men and women opting to hit the bingo halls in place of the bars on a Saturday night. All this is about to be destroyed with the enacting of the anti smoking law throughout UK.

Players will no longer be permitted to smoke while dabbing numbers. From the summer of 2007 all public places will no longer be allowed to permit smoking in their buildings and this includes Bingo parlours, one of the most favored areas where people like to smoke.

The results of the anti cigarette law can already be looked at in Scotland where smoking is already forbidden in the bingo parlors. Players have plummeted and the industry is absolutely fighting for to stay alive. But where have all the players gone? Of course they have not abandoned this familiar game?

The answer is on the web. Players realise that they can enjoy bingo using their computer while enjoying a drink and smoke and in the end, have a chance at massive jackpots. This is a recent phenomenon and has happened bordering on perfect with the ban on smoking.

Of course betting on online is unlikely to replace the communal part of heading down to the bingo parlor, but for a demographic of men and women the governing edicts have left a good many bingo enthusiasts with little option.
