Keno is a game of pure randomness and is very similar to Lotto games. The game was brought over to the US by Chinese migrants in the nineteenth century. As with lotto games, it is a dead simple to play, and it is appealing as substantial prizes are offered for very small wagers. Keno is played at taverns, clubs and civic center all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another characteristic with lottery games – horrendous expectations.

Logically, Keno hit upon its way into casinos on the internet as it was a simple game to develop, and online casino software operators wanted to benefit from the big land based Keno fan base on the internet. What was even more in the favor of internet casinos was that many players were accustomed to playing Keno on electronic screens, so the move on to the internet was a insignificant barrier than say with twenty-one.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You begin by selecting between 4 and ten numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each selection is referred to as a "spot". In many online keno games, you can purchase different cards for the same draw, and in a few games you can even pre-buy for future games.

After you have submitted your selection, 20 balls with numbers will "drop" into a capsule from a barrel. If enough of your numbers are picked, you win. It is that easy. You will obviously earn more, if more of your numbers come up, like with lotteries.

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

Simple? Yes. So there should be a catch? Absolutely. The casino edge with Keno is 30% or more, the WORST of any online casino game. The chances of landing on a number is 0.25percent. Keno is by a wide margin the worst game you could possibly play. If you are looking for a game of speculation wager on slot machines.
