Ponder For a Long Time Before You Try Keno

[ English ]

Keno is a game of pure luck and is very similar to lottery games. The game was brought to the America by Chinese newcomers in the 19th aeon. As with lotto games, it is a very simple to enjoy, and it is appealing as big jackpots are available for very tiny wagers. Keno is played at saloons, clubs and civic center all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another characteristic with lottery games – horrid odds.

By reason, Keno found its way into casinos on the internet as it was an easy game to build, and internet casino operators wanted to capture the huge brick and mortar Keno fan base on the internet. What was even more in the favour of internet casinos was that many players were accustomed to gambling on Keno on electronic screens, so the move on to the internet was a insignificant barrier than say with vingt-et-un.

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 referred to as a "spot". In many online keno games, you can purchase multiple tickets for the same draw, and in some games you can even pre-buy for games in the future.

Once you have submitted your selection, twenty numbered balls will "enter" into a hopper from a barrel. If enough of your spots are selected, you win. That simple. You will obviously gain more, if more of your numbers surface, like with lotteries.

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

Simple? Yes. So there must be a catch? Absolutely. The house edge with Keno is 30% or higher, the WORST of any internet casino game. The expectation of landing on a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a big margin the worst game you could possibly bet on. If you are wanting a game of randomness gamble on slot machines.
