Keno Tactics That Work

January 15th, 2018 Leave a comment Go to comments

It may not commonly be considered the funnest game in the realm of gambling, but keno has tons of keen players. As well it should! It’s a routinely thrilling lottery-type game that’s simple to learn, readily available in lots of alternate variations, and one that can yield millions of dollars for those who learn its endless subtle intricacies. But let’s deal with the basic rules here.

When describing keno to amateurs, some betting masters compare it to the lottery. This is at least to a certain degree correct, in that both games are generally numerical. But to take that comparison too far would be to downplay the many unique traits that make keno so compelling. Unlike bingo, keno enthusiasts have the power to pick the numbers for each card.

Keno cards have a grand total of eighty numbers, but the user is accord an increased degree of personal responsibility by being able to choose as numerous (or as few) numbers as she thinks is appropriate. And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to determine how to fill out a card: all you do is circle or otherwise mark all of your chosen numbers with a normalball point pen like you used back in the day.

After you’ve picked your numbers, carry your game card back to the keno pit manager at the keno stand. The person will record your numbers and then give you a receipt. Do not drop this (potentially) expensive bit of paper! Even if the clerk remembers your pretty face and would like to help out, without a winning receipt on you, you will win precisely $.00 for your winning card.

And there you have strategy #1: always make sure to keep your keno ticket. Let’s move to something a bit more complicated, ok?

After you’ve picked your numbers, get yourself into a comfortable keno booth and see the action take place on a monitor. That’s where the winning numbers appear for all to see. If you marked winning numbers, mark your card aptly. Sake care not to take your time, or sit there congratulating yourself for too great a length of time. You must get back to the keno booth to collect your winnings, since a new keno game will almost certainly start within five minutes.

Strategy number two: always be sure to get back to the keno stand on time!

Since you do not trust yourself to meet that 5 minute deadline each time, you always have the option of purchasing a "multi-race" ticket. These include the same set of your handpicked numbers on anywhere from 2 to twenty cards. When the maximum amount of games (the same as the amount of tickets) is played out, you may then get off your lazy rump and go collect your winnings.

Another alternative is known as a "stray and play" keno slip, which normally allows you make number picks for thirty keno games or more. Heck, you can take vacation to France and not have to get uptight about getting back in time to redeem your winnings. Most "stray and play" tickets are good for up to a whole year after it’s purchased!

So now you have learned a number of required strategies for winning keno. If you are a discerning keno player, they may seem incredibly obvious. But it will never hurt to brush up on the fundamentals, and if you are a new keno player, every bit of information will help make your keno wagering more captivating.
