This morning I went back to Mighty M Gaming at Monticello Raceway and won $12.50 on video poker. I also ate a half-price lunch buffet there (with coupon), after buying $10 of New Jersey Pick-6 and $4 of Pennsylvania Match 6.

I know Pennsylvania has self-service ticket machines (and Ohio has had them for many years) but today was the first time I knew NY had any. These are the kinds where you put in a betslip and a ticket comes out (rather than scratch-ticket vending machines.) At Mighty M there are also several regular lottery terminals.

NY requires a 90% minimum payout in video lottery (some video poker machines have a virtual 100% payout.) So why would ANYBODY buy a ticket for a game with a 40% payout in a racino?
