Keno is a game of pure speculation and is very close to Lotto games. The game was brought to the America by Chinese migrants in the 19th century. As with lotto games, it is a dead easy to play, and it is endearing as substantial prizes are available for very small wagers. Keno is enjoyed at lounges, clubs and recreation center all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another characteristic with lotto games – horrid expectations.

Understandably, Keno happen upon its way into online casinos as it was a simple game to create, and casino operators wanted to entice the huge brick and mortar Keno players on the internet. What was even more in the favor of casinos on the internet was that many gamblers were accustomed to betting on Keno on electronic terminals, so the move online was less of a hurdle than say with vingt-et-un.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You start off by selecting between four and ten numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each selection is referred to as a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can buy multiple tickets for the same draw, and in a few games you can even pre purchase for games in the future.

After you have submitted your selection, twenty balls with numbers will "enter" into a capsule from a barrel. If enough of your numbers are selected, you win. It is that easy. You will obviously earn more, if more of your spots hit, like with lotteries.

Most keno online games allow you to buy cards between 5 cents and 5 dollars, and pay out in multiples of your card value. Jackpot fortunes of up to 50 000 dollars are not uncommon.

Easy? Absolutely. So there should be a problem? Absolutely. The house edge with Keno is 30% or greater, the WORST of any online casino game. The chances of landing on a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a wide margin the worst game you could possibly wager on. If you are wanting a game of randomness play slot machines.
