What was even more in the favor of internet casinos was that many gamblers were used to wagering on Keno on video screens, so the move on to the internet was less of a barrier than say with 21.

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

After you have submitted your choices, 20 numbered balls will "drop" into a capsule from a tube. If enough of your numbers are drawn, you win. That simple. You will obviously gain more, if more of your numbers come up, like with lottos.

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

Simple? Yes. So there must be a catch? Yes. The house advantage with Keno is 30 percent or higher, the WORST of any internet casino game. The chances of hitting a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a wide shot the atrocious game you could possibly bet on. If you want a game of speculation wager on slot machines.
