No they don't.
The regular DONs on Stars have 8% rake and the turbo ones have 4% rake, at every stake level other than the $1 ones.
This means you only have to cash in 52% of the turbos and 54% of the regulars to break even.

How is that a bad thing?
Surely its to your benefit the more the other players disconnect, time out, and sit out.

I think 50 is enough.
The variance in these is massively less than regular sit n gos for which a 100 buy in bankroll is considered ample.
If you can cash in like 60% of the $100 ones you could certainly make a lot of money mass multitabling them.
But the opposition gets a lot tougher above the $10 ones.
If you played 10 $100 turbo ones and cashed in 6 you make $160
(6 x $200 - 10 x $104) so I wouldn't say they can't be worth it.
They have a lot of advantages over normal sit n gos in that the rake is much better and its way easier to multitable
