Keno is a game of pure speculation and is very similar to lottery games. The game was brought over to the America by Chinese immigrants in the 19th aeon. As with lotto games, it’s a dead easy to play, and it is appealing as big jackpots are offered for very tiny bets. Keno is played at taverns, clubs and recreation center all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another weakness with lottery games – horrendous odds.

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

So here is how you play Keno. You begin by selecting between four and ten numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each selection is describe as a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can purchase multiple tickets for the same draw, and in some games you can even pre-order for games in the future.

Once you have submitted your choices, 20 numbered balls will "enter" into a hopper from a barrel. If enough of your spots are drawn, you win. That is all there is. You will obviously come away with more, if more of your numbers hit, like with lotteries.

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

Easy? Yeah. So there should be a problem? Absolutely. The casino advantage with Keno is 30% or greater, the WORST of any online casino game. The odds of hitting a number is 0.25percent. Keno is by a wide margin the atrocious game you might possibly wager on. If you are wanting a game of randomness wager on slot machines.
