It might not generally be seen as the sexiest game in the universe of wagering, but keno has tons of devoted followers. And it should! It’s a consistently thrilling lottery-ish game that’s a snap to pickup, readily available in several different variations, and one that will yield millions for those who master its endless subtle intricacies. But let’s start with the basic facts for now.

When defining keno to newcomers, some gambling experts compare it to lotto. This is at least in part correct, in that both games are essentially numerical. However, to take that comparison too far can be to discount the innumerable unique aspect that make keno so interesting. Unlike bingo, keno enthusiasts have the ability to choose the numbers for each card.

Keno cards have a grand total of 80 numbers, but the player is granted an increased degree of personal responsibility by being able to decide on as many (or as few) numbers as he or she thinks is appropriate. And it doesn’t take a genius to figure out how to fill out a card: all you do is circle or otherwise mark all your handpicked numbers with a ordinaryball point pen like you used when you were in third grade.

Once you’ve marked your numbers, take the game card back to the nice person at the keno stand. The keno pit manager will record your numbers and then give you a receipt. Don’t lose this (potentially) lucrative piece of paper! Even if the keno pit manager remembers your loud shirt and wants help out, without a winning receipt on you, you will be given precisely $.00 for your winning card.

OK, so there you have strategy #1: always make sure to keep your keno receipt. Let’s move on to something a little bit more complicated, ok?

Now that you’ve selected your numbers, settle into a comfortable keno booth and watch the action unfold on a big video monitor. This is where the winning numbers are shown for us. If you selected winners, mark your card appropriately. Be sure not to take too much time, or sit there congratulating yourself for too great a length of time. You must get back to the keno stand to get your winnings, and a new round of keno will probably start up within not too many minutes.

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

Assuming you do not trust yourself to beat that five-minute deadline each time, you always have the option of using a "multi-race" card. These include the same set of your chosen numbers on anywhere from 2 to twenty slips. When the maximum amount of rounds (fitting the number of tickets) is completed, you can then get off your lazy back side and go get your winnings.

Another choice is known as a "stray and play" keno slip, which generally lets you make number picks for 30 keno games or more. Golly, you can take an ocean cruise and not have to fret about getting back in time to retrieve your winnings. Most "stray and play" game tickets are good for up to a whole year after you by it!

And now you know a number of needed methods for winning keno. If you are an adept gambler, they might seem to be incredibly obvious. But it will never hurt to study up on the fundamentals, and if you are a beginner player, every tiny bit of direction will help make your keno wagering more enjoyable.
