Think Carefully Prior to Playing Keno

Keno is a game of pure randomness and is very close to lottery games. The game was brought over to the USA by Chinese migrants in the 19th century. As with lotto games, it’s a very simple to enjoy, and it is attractive as large fortunes are available for very little wagers. Keno is enjoyed at bars, clubs and community centers all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another weakness with lotto games – horrid expectations.

Logically, Keno hit upon its way into internet casinos as it was a simple game to establish, and online casino owners wanted to benefit from the giant land based Keno fan base online. What was even more in the favour of online casinos was that many gamblers were accustomed to playing Keno on video terminals, so the move online was hardly a encumbrance than say with twenty-one.

So here is how you play Keno. You begin by selecting between four and ten numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each choice is describe as a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can purchase many tickets 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 balls with numbers will "enter" into a hopper from a barrel. If enough of your spots are picked, you win. That simple. You will obviously amass more, if more of your numbers hit, like with lotteries.

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

Easy? Yes. So there has to be a catch? Absolutely. The casino edge with Keno is 30 percent or more, the WORST of any internet casino game. The expectation of landing on a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a big margin the awful game you could possibly wager on. If you are wanting a game of chance gamble on slot machines.
