Should all lottery games pay 50% or more?

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%).

i get the feeling you hit a ny lotto jackpot but you got ripped off well since its at 41 million now im guessing the final take home cash value when all is said and done is like 15-16 million which is good enough for me

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.
