Cheung Leung needed to come up with a quick response for the economic calamity and to produce revenue for his military. He, as it follows created the game we now know as keno and it was a great success.

Keno used to be referred to as the White Pigeon Game, because the winning numbers were sent out by pigeons from larger locations to the lesser villages. The lotto ‘Keno’ was imported to America in the 1800s by Chinese newcomers who headed to the States to jobs. In those times, Keno used one hundred and twenty numbers.
