Keno is a game of pure randomness and is very close to lottery games. The game was brought over to the the states by Chinese migrants in the 19th aeon. As with lotto games, it’s a dead easy to enjoy, and it is enchanting as large jackpots are offered for very tiny bets. Keno is played at bars, clubs and recreation center all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another weakness with lotto games – horrendous odds.

Sensibly, Keno happen upon its way into casinos on the internet as it was a simple game to create, and casino owners wanted to capture the big land based Keno players online. What was even more in the favor of internet casinos was that many players were accustomed to wagering on Keno on electronic terminals, so the move on to the internet was hardly a barrier than say with blackjack.

So here is how you play Keno. You begin by choosing between 4 and ten numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each choice is describe as a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can purchase countless tickets for the same draw, and in a handful games you can even pre purchase for games in the future.

Once you have submitted your choices, twenty balls with numbers will "drop" into a capsule from a barrel. If enough of your spots are selected, you win. That is all there is. You will obviously gain more, if more of your numbers hit, like with lotteries.

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

Easy? Yes. So there has to be a problem? Yes. The house edge with Keno is thirty percent or greater, the WORST of any online casino game. The expectation of hitting a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a big shot the atrocious game you might possibly play. If you are wanting a game of randomness play slots.
