Slot Machine's Subliminal Messaging!?


Konami is not just renowned for publishing video games. They have a sneaky gambling division as well. And they have been apparently naughty. “On Friday, an Ontario gambling operator shut down 87 Konami video slot machines in the Canadian province out of concern that they may contain subliminal messages that would encourage players to keep gambling, according to CBC News. The Canadian news service discovered that three brands of video slot machines sold by the publisher’s gambling division, Konami Gaming, flashed winning jackpot symbols for one-fifth of a second during every spin.” I betcha Blizzard does the same with World of Warcraft. I get freaking purple loot to flash across my screen for one-fifth of a second as I play.
