Think Carefully Prior to Playing Keno

Keno is a game of pure randomness and is very close to Lotto games. The game was brought over to the U.S. by Chinese immigrants in the nineteenth century. As with lottery games, it’s a dead simple to play, and it is enchanting as large fortunes are available for very little wagers. Keno is played at lounges, clubs and community centers all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another weakness with lottery games – horrendous odds.

Understandably, Keno hit upon its way into online casinos as it was a simple game to create, and casino software operators wanted to benefit from the huge brick and mortar Keno fan base online. What was even more in the favour of casinos on the internet was that many gamblers were used to betting on Keno on video screens, so the move online was a insignificant barrier than say with blackjack.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You begin by selecting between four and ten numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each selection is referred to as a "spot". In many online keno games, you can buy countless cards for the same draw, and in a handful games you can even pre purchase for upcoming games.

Once you have submitted your choices, 20 balls with numbers will "drop" into a hopper from a barrel. If enough of your spots are selected, you win. That simple. You will obviously win more, if more of your spots hit, like with lotteries.

Most keno online games allow you to purchase cards between 5 cents and five dollars, and pay out in multiples of your card value. Jackpot prizes of up to fifty thousand dollars are not uncommon.

Easy? Absolutely. So there has to be a problem? Yeah. The gambling casino advantage with Keno is 30% or higher, the WORST of any online casino game. The expectation of hitting a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a big shot the awful game you might possibly play. If you are seeking a game of luck bet on slots.
