Slots at racetracks are a losing bet

Steve Poftak writes in today's Boston Globe, Massachusetts' great gambling giveaway:
"IF THE MASSACHUSETTS Legislature wrote a billion-dollar check to the casino industry, people would be outraged. But the gambling bill, awaiting action in the House after receiving Senate approval, threatens to give away more than $1 billion in value by charging an inordinately low fee for the four proposed licenses."
I've written about this before. Handing over slot licenses to racetracks is so wrong.
