Think Carefully Prior to Playing Keno

Keno is a game of pure chance and is very close to lottery games. The game was brought over to the America by Chinese expatriates in the nineteenth century. As with lotto games, it’s a very easy to enjoy, and it is attractive as large fortunes are offered for very small bets. Keno is played at saloons, clubs and civic center all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another similarity with lotto games – horrible expectations.

Sensibly, Keno ensconced its way into online casinos as it was an easy game to develop, and casino software owners wanted to entice the large brick and mortar Keno players online. What was even more in the favour of internet casinos was that many gamblers were accustomed to wagering on Keno on video terminals, so the move on to the internet was hardly a problem than say with 21.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You begin by appointing between 4 and 10 numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each selection is referred to as a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can buy many cards for the same draw, and in many games you can even pre purchase for future games.

Once you have submitted your choices, twenty numbered balls will "drop" into a capsule from a barrel. If enough of your numbers are drawn, you win. It’s that easy. You will obviously win more, if more of your numbers appear, like with lotteries.

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

Easy? Absolutely. So there has to be a catch? Absolutely. The casino edge with Keno is thirty percent or greater, the WORST of any online casino game. The expectation of landing on a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a wide margin the atrocious game you can possibly gamble on. If you are seeking a game of speculation gamble on slot machines.
