Keno is a game of pure speculation and is very similar to Lotto games. The game was brought to the US by Chinese immigrants in the nineteenth century. As with lotto games, it is an absolutely simple to play, and it is endearing as substantial prizes are offered for very small bets. Keno is enjoyed at saloons, clubs and recreation center all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another weak point with lottery games – terrible expectations.

Rationally, Keno hit upon its way into internet casinos as it was a simple game to create, and online casino owners wanted to ensnare the huge land based Keno players on the internet. What was even more in the favour of online casinos was that many players were accustomed to gambling on Keno on video screens, so the move online was less of a hurdle than say with blackjack.

So here is how you play Keno. You start off by selecting between four and 10 numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each selection is referred to as a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can purchase countless cards for the same draw, and in many games you can even pre purchase for upcoming games.

Once you have submitted your choices, twenty balls with numbers will "drop" into a capsule from a tube. If enough of your spots are picked, you win. That’s all there is. You will obviously earn more, if more of your spots hit, like with lotteries.

Most keno online games allow you to purchase tickets between 5c and 5 dollars, and pay out in multiples of your ticket value. Jackpot fortunes of up to $50 000 are not uncommon.

Simple? Yes. So there must be a catch? Absolutely. The gambling casino advantage with Keno is 30% or more, the WORST of any internet casino game. The odds of hitting a number is 0.25percent. Keno is by a big shot the atrocious game you can possibly bet on. If you are wanting a game of luck play slots.
