Keno was created in two hundred BC by the Chinese military leader, Cheung Leung who used this game as a finance resource for his failing army. The city of Cheung was at war, and after a bit of time appeared to be facing national shortage of food with the dramatic drop in supplies. Cheung Leung had to come up with a fast response for the economic calamity and to acquire money for his military. He therefore developed the game we now know as keno and it was a great success.

Keno once was known as the White Pigeon Game, due to the fact that the winning numbers were sent out by pigeons from larger cities to the smaller villages. The lotto ‘Keno’ was imported to the US in the 1800s by Chinese migrants who migrated to the United States for work. In those times, Keno used 120 numbers.

Today, Keno is typically played with just 80 numbers in almost all of the US brick and mortar casinos along with net casinos. Keno is commonly loved today as a consequence of the relaxed nature of playing the game and the simple reality that there are no expertise needed to enjoy Keno. Regardless of the fact that the chances of succeeding are terrible, there is constantly the chance that you will win quite large with little gambling investment.

Keno is played with 80 numbers and 20 numbers are selected each game. Gamblers of Keno can pick from two to 10 numbers and bet on them, as much or as little as they want to. The pay out of Keno is dependent on the wagers made and the matching of numbers.

Keno has grown in acceptance in the United States since the close of the 19th century when the Chinese letters were changed with more familiar, American numbers. Lottos were not covered under the legalization of gambling in Nevada State in Nineteen Thirty One. The casinos changed the name of the ‘Chinese lottery’ to ‘horse race keno’ utilizing the notion that the numbers are horses and you are looking for your horses to place. When the Nevada government passed a law that taxed off track gambling, Nevada casinos quickly changed the name to ‘Keno’.
