Percentage of wagers returned as prizes to gamblers in Nevada in 2007, by game:
Slot machines 93.9%
Sports Betting 92.9%
Horse Racing 83.0%
Granted that's Nevada, and 2007, but a pretty indicator.
I would love to see a similar breakdown for any state with a lottery, game by game.

Incidentally, I don't know what was printed in USA Today, but the payout percentages for live Keno are, as a rule, even worse.
