Online lottery games usually pay back about 50%; scratches, keno, and video lottery pay better. But some lottery games, like NY Lotto, pay less (38%-40%).

      Most Jackpot games pay back 40-50% give or take, if you are playing a game and don't know how much you would be getting if you won then i don't think you should be playing

      The only jackpot game that pays under 50% is NY Lotto. The pick-5's in Arizona and South Carolina pay 45%, but don't roll over. Here in PA out Match 6 pays 53%, in MI Lotto47 pays 52%, and Cash Winfall in MA pays out 60%.

        My vote is yes especially in all Match 6 or 5+1 games.

          Even better they shouldn't announce the jackpot at $100 million or whatever. They should just say $50 million and be honest about it!

            I think they should, but if I were to win a small jackpot I still wouldn't complain.

              Since some slots pay in the high 90s, how about a national slot machine jackpot, since there are statewide jackpots in Nevada. Of course, there would HAVE to be a cash option.
