It may not generally be seen as the sexiest game in the world of wagering, but keno has millions of devout followers. As well it should! It’s a consistently entertaining lottery-like game that’s a snap to learn, abundantly available in tons of assorted variations, and one that might pay out millions for those who master its limitless subtle intricacies. But let’s start with the basic rules here.

When describing keno to newcomers, some wagering connoisseurs compare it to bingo. This is at least partially apt, in that each game is basically numerical. Yet to carry that comparison too far would be to think too little of the endless unique aspect that make keno so entertaining. Not like bingo, keno gamblers have the ability to choose the numbers for every card.

Keno cards have a grand total of eighty numbers, but the gambler is accord an additional level of personal responsibility by being able to determine as numerous (or as few) numbers as he or she needs. And it doesn’t take a doctor of keno to determine how to fill out a card: all you do is circle or otherwise mark all of your picked numbers with a ordinaryball point pen like you used when you were in school.

Once you have picked your numbers, take the card back to the keno pit manager at the keno stand. The girl will record your numbers and then hand you a receipt. Make sure no to misplace this (potentially) expensive bit of paper! Even if the keno pit manager remembers your loud shirt and wants help out, without a winning receipt on you, you will collect precisely $.00 for your time spent.

Now there you have strategy numero uno: always be sure to keep your keno receipt. Let’s get on to something a bit more advanced, ok?

After you’ve marked your numbers, get yourself into a comfortable keno booth and see the action unfold on the monitor. This is where the winning numbers are displayed for us. If you have winning numbers, mark your card accordingly. Be sure not to dilly dally, or sit there praising yourself for too great a length of time. You must get back to the keno booth to collect your winnings, as a new keno game will most likely get going within not too many minutes.

Strategy number two: always be sure to get back to the keno stand on time!

Since you can’t trust yourself to meet that five-minute margin each time, you always have the option of using a "multi-race" card. These include the same set of your selected numbers on anywhere from 2 to twenty cards. When the maximum amount of keno games (matching the amount of tickets) is played out, you are then able to get off your lazy back side and go collect your winnings.

Another opportunity is known as a "stray and play" keno card, which normally allows you make number selection for thirty keno rounds or more. Heck, you can take a Swedish massage and not have to get uptight about getting back in time to collect your numbers. Most "stray and play" tickets are good for up to a whole year after you purchase it!

So now you have learned a few required methods for winning keno. If you are an adept gambler, they may appear to be quite obvious. But it won’t hurt to study up on the basics, and if you are a novice player, every tiny bit of information will help make your keno playing more enjoyable.
