Keno is a game of pure speculation and is very similar to lottery games. The game was brought to the US by Chinese migrants in the 19th century. As with lotto games, it is a very easy to play, and it is enjoyable as substantial prizes are available for very little bets. Keno is played at taverns, clubs and community centers all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another weakness with lotto games – horrible odds.

Sensibly, Keno found its way into online casinos as it was an easy game to build, and online casino software operators wanted to benefit from the big brick and mortar Keno fan base on the internet. What was even more in the favor of internet casinos was that many people were used to playing Keno on video screens, so the move online was hardly a problem than say with twenty-one.

So here is how you play Keno. You start off by appointing between 4 and 10 numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each selection is called a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can buy many tickets for the same draw, and in a handful games you can even pre-buy for future games.

Once you have submitted your selection, twenty balls with numbers will "drop" into a hopper from a tube. If enough of your numbers are picked, you win. It’s that easy. You will obviously earn more, if more of your spots appear, like with lottos.

Most keno internet games allow you to buy tickets between 5 cents and five dollars, and pay out in multiples of your ticket value. Jackpot winnings of up to fifty thousand dollars are not uncommon.

Simple? Absolutely. So there should be a problem? Absolutely. The casino advantage with Keno is thirty percent or greater, the WORST of any internet casino game. The odds of landing on a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a wide shot the awful game you can possibly wager on. If you are wanting a game of randomness wager on slot machines.
