Once you have submitted your selection, 20 balls with numbers will "drop" into a hopper from a barrel. If enough of your spots are drawn, you win. That simple. You will obviously win more, if more of your spots are landed on, like with lotteries.

Most online keno games allow you to purchase tickets between 5c and $5, and pay out in multiples of your ticket value. Jackpot fortunes of up to $50 000 are not uncommon.
