Ponder For a Long Time Before You Wager on Keno

November 3rd, 2015 Leave a comment Go to comments

Keno is a game of pure chance and is very similar to lottery games. The game was brought over to the US of A by Chinese newcomers in the nineteenth century. As with lotto games, it is a very simple to play, and it is appealing as substantial jackpots are offered for very small bets. Keno is enjoyed at taverns, clubs and civic center all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another characteristic with lotto games – horrendous odds.

Understandably, Keno ensconced its way into internet casinos as it was a simple game to establish, and internet casino software owners wanted to catch the huge land based Keno fan base on the internet. What was even more in the favour of online casinos was that many people were used to betting on Keno on video terminals, so the move online was a insignificant problem than say with blackjack.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You start off by choosing between 4 and 10 numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each choice is called a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can purchase multiple cards for the same draw, and in quite a few games you can even pre-buy for games in the future.

After you have submitted your choices, 20 balls with numbers will "drop" into a hopper from a tube. If enough of your numbers are selected, you win. That simple. You will obviously gain more, if more of your numbers surface, like with lottos.

Most internet keno games allow you to buy tickets between five cents and 5 dollars, and pay out in multiples of your ticket value. Jackpot prizes of up to 50 000 dollars are not uncommon.

Easy? Yeah. So there should be a problem? Absolutely. The casino edge with Keno is 30% or higher, the WORST of any internet casino game. The odds of hitting a number is 0.25percent. Keno is by a big shot the awful game you can possibly wager on. If you are wanting a game of chance bet on slot machines.
