If you’re a desperately committed gambler, a new MVNO may soon be launching just the phone for you. Fortuna Gambling is looking to unleash the ultimate Mobile Virtual Network Operator for the gambling industry. They would be aiming to be synonymous with mobile gambling. More details than that are scarce at this point, but you would have to imagine that the opportunity for subscribers to gamble on the go would be the central part of the offering. That direction would present some real legal hurdles for the company to climb over.
The U.S. government has not been particularly tolerant of online gambling, forcing the companies operating online sites to base out of more accepting countries. Even if Fortuna Gambling were to locate their servers somewhere else, they would be buying time from domestic carriers, which could be a problem. Still, if they could find a way to get it done, consumers would likely flock to it.
