Think Carefully Before You Gamble on Keno

by Eden on March 16th, 2023

Keno is a game of pure chance and is very close to Lotto games. The game was brought over to the the states by Chinese migrants in the nineteenth century. As with lotto games, it is a dead simple to play, and it is endearing as large fortunes are available for very small wagers. Keno is enjoyed at taverns, clubs and community centers all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another characteristic with lottery games – horrendous odds.

Logically, Keno ensconced its way into internet casinos as it was a simple game to create, and casino software owners wanted to ensnare the large brick and mortar Keno players on the internet. What was even more in the favour of internet casinos was that many players were used to wagering on Keno on video terminals, so the move online was less of a barrier than say with blackjack.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You begin by selecting between four and ten numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each selection is called a "spot". In many online keno games, you can buy multiple tickets for the same draw, and in some games you can even pre-order for upcoming games.

Once you have submitted your selection, 20 numbered balls will "drop" into a capsule from a tube. If enough of your numbers are selected, you win. That simple. You will obviously earn more, if more of your numbers hit, like with lotteries.

Most online keno games allow you to purchase tickets between five cents and $5, and pay out in multiples of your ticket value. Jackpot winnings of up to $50 000 are not uncommon.

Simple? Yeah. So there should be a problem? Yes. The house advantage with Keno is thirty percent or higher, the WORST of any online casino game. The chances of hitting a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a wide margin the worst game you can possibly bet on. If you are wanting a game of luck wager on slots.
