Will the Anti Cigarette Law in Britain Take Bingo Enthusiasts Online?

[ English ]

An abundance has been written in the press not long ago about the bingo industry being hit as a consequence of the anti smoking law in England. Conditions have grown so poor that in Scotland the Bingo industry has asked for massive aid to help keep the businesses from going bankrupt. However does the net variation of this quintessential game present a escape, or might it in no way compare to its bricks and mortar kin?

Bingo has been an classic game normally played by the "blue rinse" generation. Although the game recently had undergone a recent increase in appeal with younger men and women deciding to visit the bingo parlors instead of the clubs on a Friday night. This is all about to change with the introduction of the anti smoking law across Britain.

Players will no longer be permitted to smoke while dabbing numbers. Beginning in the summer of 2007 every public area will not be permitted to allow smoking in their venues and this includes Bingo parlours, which are possibly the most favorite places where people enjoy smoking.

The results of the anti cigarette law can already be looked at in Scotland where smoking is already not permitted in the bingo parlors. Players have plummeted and the business is beyond a doubt struggling for its life. But where did the players go? Of course they haven’t given up on this familiar game?

The answer is on the web. Players know that they can wager on bingo in front of their computer while enjoying a beverage and cigarette and in the end, enjoy massive cash rewards. This is a recent development and has timed itself bordering on perfect with the ban on cigarettes.

Of course gambling on online can never replace the communal portion of going over to the bingo parlor, but for a demographic of people the governing edicts have left a lot of bingo players with no choice.
