Keno Methods That Win

November 4th, 2009 Leave a comment Go to comments

It will not ordinarily be looked at as the most fun game in the world of betting, but keno has massive amounts of devout enthusiasts. And it should! It’s a consistently exciting lottery-style game that’s uncomplicated to learn, abundantly available in several assorted formats, and one that will pay out millions for those who master its many subtle nuances. But let’s deal with the basic rules for now.

When explaining keno to amateurs, some wagering connoisseurs compare it to bingo. This is at least in part apt, in that both games are fundamentally numerical. However, to take that comparison too far would be to miscalculate the endless unique traits that make keno so entertaining. Unlike bingo, keno gamblers have the ability to choose the numbers for each card.

Keno cards have a total of eighty numbers, but the user is given an extra level of personal responsibility by being able to choose as many (or as few) numbers as he thinks is appropriate. And it doesn’t take a super genius to come up with how to fill out a card: all you do is circle or otherwise mark all your picked numbers with a every day old#2 pencil like you had when you were in school.

Now that you have selected your numbers, take the game card back to the keno pit manager at the keno booth. The nice person will record your numbers and then give you a receipt. Don’t lose this (potentially) expensive bit of paper! Even if the keno pit manager remembers your loud shirt and would like to help out, without a winning slip on you, you will collect exactly $.00 for your efforts.

Now there you have strategy #1: always be sure to keep your keno slip. Let’s go on to something a little bit more advanced, shall we?

Once you’ve selected your numbers, get into a comfortable keno booth and observe the action happen on a monitor. That’s where the winning numbers show up for all to see. If you checked winning numbers, mark your card accordingly. Be sure not to drag your feet, or sit there praising yourself for an obnoxious length of time. You want to get back to the keno stand to get your winnings, and a new round of keno will most likely begin within not too many minutes.

Strategy number 2: always make sure to get back to the keno booth on time!

Since you can not trust yourself to beat that 5 minute deadline each and every time, you always retain the option of buying a "multi-race" ticket. These include the very same set of your handpicked numbers on anywhere from 2 to 20 cards. When the maximum amount of keno games (the same as the number of tickets) is completed, you may then get off your numb back side and go get your winnings.

Still another opportunity is referred to as a "stray and play" keno card, which normally allows you make number picks for 30 rounds or more. Hell, you can take an ocean cruise and not have to get uptight about getting back in time to retrieve your winnings. Most "stray and play" game cards are good for up to a whole year after purchase!

And now you are aware of a few indispensable techniques for winning keno. If you are a discerning player, they might appear to be quite obvious. However, it does not hurt to study up on the basic strategies, and if you are a novice user, every bit of information will help make your keno playing more captivating.
