British Bingo Players Smoked Out?

The stereo-typical British Bingo hall, with its light blue haze and faint tobacco smell, may be no longer as the government has passed legislation that will ban smoking in all clubs, pubs, restaurants, casinos and bingo halls.

Set to take effect in mid-2007, British citizens with a passion for both bingo and tobacco have about a year and a half to beat the smoking habit. The more likely scenario however will be a drop in bingo attendance as many will be unable to fully enjoy their game without the usual compliment of cigarettes.

Bingo halls not implementing the ban will be fined £2,500 per instance of smoking on their premises, while the smoker will be hit with smaller £50 fine.
