Keno is one of those games you either know about or you do not. It is generally considered a lotto in the casino. Similar to the lotto, the game is made up of numbers being drawn. The goal is to select the numbers that will be drawn. The game of Keno can be either fast or slow based on the casino. By betting on Keno on the net you can control the speed of the game. Personally, I love real life keno. You sit in a lounge, if you want, and enjoy. Keno is a game that you don’t have to be present to participate and win. For example, you can purchase a ticket for twenty games and then head off to gamble on something else in the casino or even your hotel room if you’re staying in the casino.

Keno Board

The game is wagered on on a game board. The Keno board consists of 80 total numbers – number one though eighty. The top 40 are called the top half and the second forty are called the bottom half.

Participating in Keno

Each game of Keno goes in the same manner. The round begins, and twenty numbers are drawn. They may be using the ball system. Ping pong style balls are blown up and selected, exactly like the lotto on television. Other casinos utilize computers. If a number you checked is selected, that’s called a "hit." When all 20 numbers are selected, the game finishes and winning tickets are paid-out.

There is a fair amount of diversity in the game of Keno. For example, you could choose just one number, two numbers and so forth-up to 20 numbers. Usually, you need to get a majority of your numbers to win something. For instance, if you select six numbers, you will normally need to hit 3 to earn your money back.

Keno Payouts

The pay outs in Keno are pretty big. The odds of coming away with a win depends on the total numbers checked. For example, if you pick two numbers, you have a 6% probability of hitting your ticket. Each casino has their own payouts. If you are looking to play on the web, make sure you shop around for the best payouts first.
