Ponder Long And Hard Before You Gamble on Keno

February 19th, 2022 Leave a comment Go to comments

Keno is a game of pure randomness and is very similar to lottery games. The game was brought over to the USA by Chinese immigrants in the 19th aeon. As with lottery games, it is a very easy to enjoy, and it is enjoyable as big prizes are offered for very tiny bets. Keno is enjoyed at bars, clubs and rec center all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another characteristic with lottery games – terrible expectations.

Sensibly, Keno found its way into internet casinos as it was an easy game to create, and internet casino software operators wanted to catch the giant land based Keno fan base on the internet. What was even more in the favor of casinos on the internet was that many people were used to wagering on Keno on video terminals, so the move online was hardly a barrier than say with vingt-et-un.

So here is how you play Keno. You start off by selecting between four and ten numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each selection is describe as a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can purchase many cards for the same draw, and in a few games you can even pre purchase for games in the future.

Once you have submitted your selection, 20 numbered balls will "enter" into a hopper from a tube. If enough of your spots are drawn, you win. That simple. You will obviously earn more, if more of your spots are landed on, like with lotteries.

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

Simple? Absolutely. So there has to be a catch? Yes. The house advantage with Keno is 30% or greater, the WORST of any internet casino game. The expectation of landing on a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a wide shot the atrocious game you could possibly gamble on. If you want a game of luck play slot machines.
