With the amount the state is taken from the profits, it appears likely that the payout percentages will be much lower then the surrounding states.

casinos may solve some financial problems for the government, but it will do more destruction than good. The people who gamble are the ones who need money.

just go visit atlantic city if yoiu want to see the miserable conditions it creates. the casinos are fabulous, but no one wants to live in that depressing town.
