Location Filter To Enable Mobile Gambling

Most of the announcements touting “mobile gambling” have refered to WiFi devices that are used inside casinos, but this one in the Casino City Times refers to gambling on mobile phones. Zero36 has filed for a patent for a “location-based filtering system” intended to allow people to gamble with real money in areas where they are allowed to, but restrict them to play-for-fun mode when they’re in a location where they can’t gamble. There aren’t any details as to how the technology works, and I suspect there’s still going to be resistance in the carrier industry.
