I have repeatedly trashed NY Lotto 6/59 (cash option or not) because the prize return is ONLY 38%-40% of sales. If you don't believe me, compare the 5/6, 4/6, and 3/6 prizes with Florida Lotto, which has roughly the same jackpot odds.
Anyway, here in NY, box bets (3- and 4-digit) return 48% (straights do pay 50%). Do any other online games pay back winners less than 50%?
BTW, the new Massachusetts Ca$h WinFall game pays 60%, AFAIK the best of any US lotto game. Online keno seems to return 60%-65%.
