Keno was first played in 200 before Christ by the Chinese military leader, Cheung Leung who utilized keno as a financial resource for his declining army. The city of Cheung was waging a battle, and after some time appeared to be facing national shortage of food with the excessive decrease in supplies. Cheung Leung had to develop a rapid response for the financial adversity and to create income for his military. He, as it follows developed the game we now know as keno and it was a wonderful success.

Keno was well-known as the White Pigeon Game, due to the fact that the winning numbers were broadcast by pigeons from larger locations to the lesser towns. The lotto ‘Keno’ was imported to America in the 19th century by Chinese expatriates who migrated to the US to work. In those times, Keno was played with 120 numbers.

Today, Keno is normally played with 80 numbers in almost all of the US land based casinos as well as online casinos. Keno is commonly liked today because of the relaxed nature of playing the game and the simple reality that there are little skills needed to enjoy Keno. Regardless of the fact that the odds of coming away with a win are horrible, there is always the possibility that you could hit quite large with a tiny gaming investment.

Keno is enjoyed with eighty numbers and twenty numbers are drawn each game. Enthusiasts of Keno can choose from 2 to 10 numbers and wager on them, as much or as little as they are able to. The payout of Keno is according to the wagers made and the roll out of matching numbers.

Keno has grown in universal appeal in the United States since the close of the 19th century when the Chinese characters were replaced with more familiar, American numbers. Lottos weren’t covered under the legalization of wagering in Nevada State in 1931. The casinos altered the name of the ‘Chinese lottery’ to ‘horse race keno’ utilizing the notion that the numbers are horses and you are wanting your horses to come in. When the Nevada government passed a law that taxed off track wagering, casinos swiftly adjusted the name to ‘Keno’.
