Keno is a game of pure randomness and is very similar to Lotto games. The game was brought over to the USA by Chinese immigrants in the nineteenth aeon. As with lotto games, it is an absolutely easy to enjoy, and it is appealing as large prizes are offered for very small bets. Keno is played at taverns, clubs and community centers all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another weakness with lottery games – horrible odds.

Rationally, Keno ensconced its way into internet casinos as it was a simple game to build, and internet casino operators wanted to capture the big brick and mortar Keno fan base on the internet. What was even more in the favour of online casinos was that many players were used to playing Keno on electronic screens, so the move online was less of a hurdle than say with blackjack.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You begin by choosing between 4 and ten numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each choice is referred to as a "spot". In many online keno games, you can purchase multiple tickets for the same draw, and in some games you can even pre purchase for future games.

Once you have submitted your choices, 20 numbered balls will "enter" into a hopper from a barrel. If enough of your numbers are selected, you win. That is all there is. You will obviously gain more, if more of your numbers come up, like with lottos.

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

Easy? Absolutely. So there has to be a problem? Yes. The house edge with Keno is thirty percent or more, the WORST of any internet casino game. The expectation of hitting a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a long shot the awful game you can possibly bet on. If you want a game of randomness gamble on slots.
