Keno Tactics That Work

November 19th, 2015 Leave a comment Go to comments

It will not ordinarily be seen as the most lucrative game in the world of gambling, but keno has massive amounts of zealous enthusiasts. Why wouldn’t it? It’s a regularly entertaining lotto-style game that’s uncomplicated to learn, readily available in several different formats, and one that might yield mega-dollars for gamblers who learn its endless subtle intricacies. But let’s deal with the basics here.

When describing keno to beginners, some betting connoisseurs compare it to bingo. This is at least to a certain extent correct, in that each game is essentially numerical. Yet to carry that comparison too far would be to belittle the good many unique aspect that make keno so entertaining. Not like bingo, keno users have the power to select the numbers for each card.

Keno cards have a total of 80 numbers, but the gambler is given an extra degree of personal responsibility by being able to decide on as many (or as few) numbers as he feels they need. And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to come up with how to fill out a card: all you do is circle or otherwise mark all your handpicked numbers with a normalball point pen like you had back in school.

Once you have checked your numbers, take your keno card back to the clerk at the keno stand. The keno pit manager will record those numbers and then hand you a receipt. Do not drop this (potentially) valuable piece of paper! Even if the keno pit manager remembers your pretty face and wants help out, without a winning slip on you, you will win precisely $.00 for your efforts.

Ok, there you have strategy #1: always make sure to keep your keno slip. Let’s move on to something a bit more complicated, yes?

Once you’ve marked your numbers, get yourself into a nice keno booth and observe the action unfold on a monitor. That is where the winning numbers are displayed for us. If you’ve got winning numbers, mark your card appropriately. Make sure not to move to slowly, or sit there praising yourself for an obnoxious length of time. You are required to get back to the keno stand to redeem your winnings, and then a new drawing will surely get going within not too many minutes.

Strategy #2: always be sure to get back to the keno stand on time!

Since you do not trust yourself to make that five-minute deadline each time, you always retain the option of using a "multi-race" ticket. These include the same set of your picked numbers on anywhere from 2 to 20 slips. When the max number of rounds (matching the amount of tickets) is finished, you will then be able to get off your lazy bum and go collect your winnings.

Another choice is known as a "stray and play" keno card, which generally allows you make number picks for 30 rounds or more. Hell, you can take vacation to France and not have to get uptight about getting back in time to redeem your numbers. Most "stray and play" slips are good for up to a whole year after you by it!

So now you have learned several necessary methods for winning keno. If you are a discerning keno player, they may seem very obvious. Still, it does not hurt to study up on the fundamentals, and if you are a newbie keno player, every tiny bit of advice will help make your keno playing time more captivating.
