|BingoScotland.com, Scotland's largest bingo site, has laughed off claims that the imminent smoking ban in England will see a surge of bingo players taking their business online.|
A spokesperson for Bingo Scotland said: ‘We saw a small burst in March 2006 when the Scottish ban came in but you have to remember, many of the bingo hall smokers are older and will not make an easy transition to online. With the English ban mid summer and the many more bingo sites available today, any operator excepting to see a noticeable lift will be disappointed.’
The popular bingo site, which pays out over £25,000 per day across its five bingo rooms, has also announced the re-launch of its software. Players can now take advantage of added slots and a range of instant games. The upgrade to the site follows a large number of requests for additional games from new members.
