Slots Pulled Over Subliminal Msgs

In Canada, the Ontario Lottery and Gaming has removed 87 video slot machines from operation after it was reported the machines display subliminal messages to players. The the three video games in question are all made by Konami.
The games flash winning jackpot symbols at players for a fifth of a second, long enough for the brain to detect even if the players are not aware of the message, some psychologists told CBC News.
