Keno is a game of pure speculation and is very close to Lotto games. The game was brought to the U.S. by Chinese newcomers in the nineteenth century. As with lotto games, it is a dead easy to enjoy, and it is appealing as substantial prizes are offered for very tiny bets. Keno is enjoyed at taverns, clubs and civic center all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another similarity with lottery games – horrible odds.

Understandably, Keno found its way into internet casinos as it was an easy game to build, and casino software operators wanted to ensnare the huge land based Keno players online. What was even more in the favor of casinos on the internet was that many gamblers were used to wagering on Keno on electronic terminals, so the move online was less of a barrier than say with twenty-one.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You begin by choosing between 4 and 10 numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each choice is referred to as a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can purchase many cards for the same draw, and in many games you can even pre purchase for games in the future.

Once you have submitted your choices, twenty numbered balls will "drop" into a hopper from a tube. If enough of your numbers are selected, you win. It is that easy. You will obviously win more, if more of your numbers are landed on, like with lottos.

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

Easy? Yeah. So there must be a catch? Yes. The house edge with Keno is thirty percent or higher, the WORST of any internet casino game. The chances of hitting a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a long margin the awful game you can possibly gamble on. If you are seeking a game of luck play slots.
