Keno was created in 200 before Christ by the Chinese military leader, Cheung Leung who utilized keno as a way to finance his failing forces. The metropolis of Cheung was at war, and after a bit of time appeared to be looking at a country wide shortage of food with the drastic drop in supplies. Cheung Leung had to come up with a rapid response for the financial disaster and to create revenue for his forces. He thusly invented the game we now know as keno and it was a fantastic success.

Keno once was well-known as the White Pigeon Game, seeing as the winning numbers were sent out by pigeons from larger locations to the lesser villages. The lotto ‘Keno’ was brought to America in the 1800s by Chinese newcomers who headed to the States to jobs. In those times, Keno was played with one hundred and twenty numbers.

Today, Keno is generally played with eighty numbers in most of the US land based casinos as well as web casinos. Keno is commonly enjoyed today as a result of the laid back nature of gambling the game and the simple fact that there are little skills needed to play Keno. Regardless of the fact that the odds of succeeding are horrible, there is constantly the possibility that you might win quite large with little gambling investment.

Keno is played with eighty numbers and 20 numbers are picked each game. Enthusiasts of Keno can choose from 2 to 10 numbers and gamble on them, whatever amount they want to. The payout of Keno is according to the bets made and the matching of numbers.

Keno has grown in universal appeal in the US since the close of the 1800’s when the Chinese letters were replaced with , US numbers. Lottos weren’t covered under the laws of gambling in Nevada State in 1931. The casinos adjusted the name of the ‘Chinese lottery’ to ‘horse race keno’ utilizing the idea that the numbers are horses and you are wanting your horses to come in. When a law passed that taxed off track gambling, casinos swiftly changed the name to ‘Keno’.
