It won’t usually be looked at as the best game in the realm of gambling, but keno has loads of zealous followers. And it should! It’s a constantly thrilling lottery-like game that’s easy to master, readily available in a number of alternate styles, and one that will yield millions for gamblers who learn its limitless subtle nuances. But let’s start with the basic facts here.

When defining keno to newbies, some gaming experts compare it to bingo. This is at least in some ways apt, in that each game is basically numerical. But to take that comparison too far will be to devalue the many unique aspect that make keno so interesting. Not like bingo, keno users have the ability to choose the numbers for every card.

Keno cards have a grand total of 80 numbers, but the gambler is granted an extra degree of personal responsibility by being able to choose as numerous (or as few) numbers as she wants. 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 each of your picked numbers with a good oldpen like you had when you were a kid.

Once you have picked your numbers, take the keno card back to the person at the keno booth. The nice person will record your numbers and then give you a receipt. Do not lose this (potentially) expensive bit of paper! Even if the clerk remembers you and would like to help out, without a winning slip in hand, you will win exactly $.00 for your winning card.

Now there you have strategy numero uno: always be sure to keep your keno slip. Let’s go on to something a little more complex, yes?

After you’ve picked your numbers, get into a comfortable keno booth and watch the action happen on the monitor. This is where the winning numbers are shown for all to see. If you selected winning numbers, mark your card appropriately. Sake care not to take your time, or sit there congratulating yourself for too great a length of time. You really want to get up to the keno booth to collect your winnings, as a new drawing will almost certainly begin within not too many minutes.

Strategy #2: always get back to the keno booth on time!

Assuming you do not trust yourself to meet that five-minute margin each and every time, you always retain the option of using a "multi-race" ticket. These include the self same set of your chosen numbers on anywhere from 2 to 20 tickets. When the maximum number of games (matching the amount of tickets) is played, you are then able to get off your numb rump and go redeem your winnings.

Another option is recognized as a "stray and play" keno slip, which normally lets you make number selection for thirty games or more. Golly, you can take a world tour and not have to worry about getting back in time to retrieve your numbers. Most "stray and play" tickets are good for up to a whole year after it’s purchased!

So now you know a handful of indispensable methods for winning keno. If you are a discerning gambler, they might seem to be incredibly obvious. However, it won’t hurt to brush up on the basics, and if you are a novice gambler, every tiny bit of information will help make your keno experience more enjoyable.
