Keno is a game of pure randomness and is very similar to lottery games. The game was brought over to the US by Chinese newcomers in the 19th century. As with lottery games, it is a very simple to enjoy, and it is endearing as big prizes are available for very tiny bets. Keno is played at lounges, clubs and recreation center all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another weakness with lottery games – terrible odds.

Logically, Keno ensconced its way into casinos on the internet as it was an easy game to develop, and online casino software operators wanted to capture the large land based Keno players on the internet. What was even more in the favor of casinos on the internet was that many gamblers were used to gambling on Keno on video screens, so the move online was less of a encumbrance than say with vingt-et-un.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You start off by selecting between 4 and ten numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each choice is describe as a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can buy many cards for the same draw, and in a handful games you can even pre-order for games in the future.

Once you have submitted your selection, 20 numbered balls will "drop" into a hopper from a tube. If enough of your spots are picked, you win. That simple. You will obviously gain more, if more of your spots come up, like with lotteries.

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

Easy? Absolutely. So there should be a problem? Absolutely. The gambling casino edge with Keno is thirty percent or higher, the WORST of any online casino game. The expectation of hitting a number is 0.25percent. Keno is by a wide shot the atrocious game you might possibly wager on. If you are wanting a game of randomness wager on slot machines.
