This is similar to a couple other ideas here.

This would be a campaign to healthify and thus sustain gambling.

Ultimately this will be the way for the gambling industry to meet candy crush. (I guess it's wishful thinking that there's a distinction there).

Ok so gambling machines will be set up to educate you as they steal your money, like schools.

It will start by changing the reward tiles on slots from fruits to vegetables, including making high impact vegetables like scallions and kale, high value, and low impact vegetables like potatoes and iceberg lettuce, low value.

From there it can become more organized, working with people's medical profile and calendar the system can work in real time to educate and ballance a person's diet and eventually thought stream.

Triple onion!

       No, this idea is different, as you get educated.

       This will work the same way as the swim suit issue works to promote swimming

       With scantily-clad rutabagas and suggestive cucumbers?   

       No treadmill-powered slots?

       //Triple onion!// Definitely not what you want in a Health Casino. Onions have been linked to lung cancer, premature ageing of the skin, hypertension, and a host of other diseases; they're also highly addictive. The only good things to be said about them is that they are absolutely divine and are known to protect against age-related mental degeneration.   

       No, wait, I'm thinking of cigarettes.

       Saw the title and imagined pedal powered slots! Now those would get you fit in a hurry. :-)
