Keno was first played in 200 BC by the Chinese military commander, Cheung Leung who utilized this game as a monetary resource for his failing forces. The metropolis of Cheung was at war, and after a bit of time appeared to be facing national famine with the drastic drop in supplies. Cheung Leung needed to come up with a rapid fix for the economic calamity and to create revenue for his army. He thusly developed the game we now know as keno and it was a fantastic success.

Keno once was known as the White Pigeon Game, seeing as the winning numbers were sent out by pigeons from larger municipalities to the smaller towns. The lottery ‘Keno’ was imported to America in the 19th century by Chinese immigrants who migrated to the US for work. In those times, Keno used 120 numbers.

Today, Keno is normally wagered on with just 80 numbers in almost all of the US based casinos along with internet casinos. Keno is mainly liked today as a consequence of the relaxed nature of playing the game and the simple fact that there are little expertise required to enjoy Keno. Regardless of the reality that the odds of winning are terrible, there is constantly the chance that you might hit quite big with very little gambling investment.

Keno is enjoyed with 80 numbers with twenty numbers selected each round. Players of Keno can select from two to ten numbers and gamble on them, whatever amount they want to. The pay out of Keno is dependent on the bets made and the roll out of matching numbers.

Keno grew in universal appeal in the United States near the close of the 19th century when the Chinese letters were replaced with more familiar, US numbers. Lottos were not covered under the legalization of wagering in the state of Nevada in 1931. The casinos renamed the ‘Chinese lottery’ to ‘horse race keno’ utilizing the idea that the numbers are horses and you are looking for your horses to come in. When a law passed that taxed off track betting, Nevada casinos quickly changed the name to ‘Keno’.
