Keno is a casino game of plain luck and is extremely similar to Lotto games. Keno was imported to the USA by Chinese newcomers in the 19th century. As with lottery games, it’s a dead easy to play, and it is attractive as huge prizes are offered for astonishingly minute wagers. Keno is wagered on at bars, discos and civic centers all over the world today. Sadly it has other characteristics with lotto games – terrible odds.

Rationally, Keno worked its way into online casinos as it was an easy game to build, and betting house operators wanted to capture the big land based Keno fan base on the net. What helped even more for web betting houses was that a great many people were used to wagering on Keno on electronic screens, so the move on the web was less of a hurdle than say with chemin de fer.

So here is how you play Keno. You start off by selecting between 4 and ten numbers from a set of eighty numbers. Each selection is called a "spot". In many web keno games, you can purchase multiple tickets for the same game, and in some games you can even pre purchase for up-coming games.

Once you have given in your choices, 20 numbered balls will "drop" into a tube from a bucket. If sufficient of your spots are picked, you win. That easy. You’ll certainly win more if more of your selected numbers are drawn, like with lotteries. Many net keno games permit you to purchase tickets ranging from 5c and 5 dollars, and pay out in multiples of your ticket value. JackpotGrand prizes of up to 50 000 dollars are not strange.

Easy? Yeah. So there must be a catch? Absolutely. The casino advantage with Keno is thirty percent or more, the WORST of any internet casino game. The chances of landing on a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a long margin the worst game you could probably play. If you want a game of chance gamble on slots. If you wish to throw cash away, gamble on Keno. Very few people actually make any meaningful returns.
