So, we always understood it as fact, but it's become apparent that the bad guys really is using the power of the subconscious to control us and take our money. Turns out some video slot machines in this country have been programmed to spit winning images out at the player in rapid 5th of a second bursts to rope the subconscious into thinking it's using a winning machine.
Konami, the globoration behind video games like the Castlevania series, and the more mind-melting Dance Dance Revolution arcade set ups, is the manufacturer of the slot consoles that flash jackpot images at the player ever two seconds. We spent the day today listening to Konami officials explaining the flashed messages as a "programming malfunction", and wondering why the CBC was taking slow-motion footage of slot machines in the first place. Who's playing who?
