Keno Methods That Work

It may not ordinarily be considered the sexiest game in the realm of gambling, but keno has millions of devoted enthusiasts. And it should! It’s a consistently thrilling lotto-style game that’s simple to play, readily available in a number of alternate styles, and one that will pay out mega-dollars for gamblers who master its countless subtle intricacies. But let’s start with the basic facts here.

When describing keno to beginners, some gambling experts compare it to bingo. This is at least partly apt, in that both games are generally numerical. But to take that comparison too far can be to downplay the good many unique traits that make keno so compelling. Not like bingo, keno gamblers have the power to pick the numbers for each and every card.

Keno cards have a grand total of eighty numbers, but the user is granted an additional degree of personal responsibility by being able to choose as many (or as few) numbers as he feels they need. And it doesn’t take a doctor of keno to come up with how to fill out a card: all you do is circle or otherwise mark all your selected numbers with a normalpen like you had when you were in third grade.

Now that you’ve selected your numbers, take your keno card back to the nice person at the keno booth. The nice person will record your numbers and then hand you a receipt. Don’t drop this (potentially) lucrative piece of paper! Even if the keno pit manager remembers you and wants help out, without a winning receipt with you, you will get exactly $.00 for your time spent.

And there you have strategy numero uno: always take care to keep your keno slip. Let us get on to something a bit more complex, ok?

Now that you’ve picked out your numbers, settle into a comfy keno booth and observe the action happen on the screen. That’s where the winning numbers are shown in lights. If you checked winners, mark your card appropriately. Make sure not to take too much time, or sit there praising yourself for an obnoxious length of time. You really want to get up to the keno stand to get your winnings, and then a new round of keno will most likely get going within a few minutes.

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

Assuming you can not trust yourself to meet that 5 minute deadline each time, you always retain the option of purchasing a "multi-race" ticket. These include the self same set of your desired numbers on anywhere from 2 to twenty cards. When the maximum amount of keno games (matching the number of tickets) is played out, you are then able to get off your numb butt and go redeem your winnings.

Still another opportunity is referred to as a "stray and play" keno ticket, which usually lets you make number choices for 30 rounds or more. Heck, you can take vacation to France and not have to fret about getting back in time to retrieve your numbers. Most "stray and play" cards are good for up to a whole year after you purchase it!

So now you have learned a couple necessary schemes for winning keno. If you are an advanced gambler, they might seem incredibly obvious. But it will never hurt to brush up on the fundamentals, and if you are a newbie player, every little bit of information will help make your keno playing more agreeable.
