The background of Keno

by Eden on November 12th, 2019

Keno was introduced in two hundred before Christ by the Chinese army leader, Cheung Leung who utilized keno as a way to finance his failing forces. The city of Cheung was waging a battle, and after awhile of war time seemed to be looking at a national famine with the dramatic drop in supplies. Cheung Leung had to develop a quick response for the financial disaster and to create revenue for his forces. He therefore invented the game we know today as keno and it was a great success.

Keno once was referred to as the White Pigeon Game, since the winning numbers were broadcast by pigeons from bigger municipalities to the tinier towns. The lottery ‘Keno’ was imported to the US in the 1800s by Chinese expatriates who migrated to the United States to work. In those times, Keno used 120 numbers.

Today, Keno is most often wagered on with eighty numbers in just about all of American based casinos as well as net casinos. Keno is largely liked today because of the laid back nature of betting the game and the basic reality that there are little skills needed to play Keno. Despite the fact that the chances of coming away with a win are horrible, there is constantly the possibility that you might win quite large with little gaming investment.

Keno is enjoyed with eighty numbers and twenty numbers are drawn each round. Gamblers of Keno can choose from 2 to ten numbers and bet on them, as much or as little as they are able to. The pay out of Keno is dependent on the bets made and the matching of numbers.

Keno has grown in acceptance in the United States since the close of the 19th century when the Chinese letters were changed with , US numbers. Lottos weren’t covered under the legalization of gambling in the state of Nevada in Nineteen Thirty One. The casinos changed the name of the ‘Chinese lottery’ to ‘horse race keno’ utilizing the concept that the numbers are horses and you are wanting your horses to come in. When a law passed that levied a tax on off track gambling, casinos quickly changed the name to ‘Keno’.
