It will not generally be considered the most fun game in the field of wagering, but keno has massive amounts of fanatical fans. Why wouldn’t it? It’s a constantly exciting lottery-type game that’s easy to play, readily available in lots of alternate styles, and one that might return millions for gamblers who master its uncounted subtle nuances. But let’s deal with the basic facts here.

When explaining keno to newcomers, some betting connoisseurs compare it to the lottery. This is at least in some measure correct, in that each game is fundamentally numerical. But to carry that comparison too far might be to undervalue the good many unique characteristics that make keno so interesting. Not like bingo, keno players have the freedom to choose the numbers for each card.

Keno cards have a grand total of eighty numbers, but the user is given an increased level of personal responsibility by being able to determine as many (or as few) numbers as he needs. And it doesn’t take a keno superstar to come up with how to fill out a card: all you do is circle or otherwise mark all of your chosen numbers with a every day oldpen like you had when you were in grade 3.

Now that you’ve picked your numbers, take the game card back to the girl at the keno booth. The keno pit manager will record your numbers and then give you a receipt. Make sure no to drop this (potentially) valuable piece of paper! Even if the keno pit manager remembers you and would like to help out, without a winning slip on you, you will get exactly $.00 for your winning card.

So, there you have strategy numero uno: always take care to keep your keno slip. Let us get on to something a bit more complex, ok?

After you’ve selected your numbers, get yourself into a nice keno booth and see the action happen on a video monitor. That is where the winning numbers show up for all to see. If you marked winners, mark your card aptly. Make sure not to move to slowly, or sit there praising yourself for an obnoxious length of time. You are required to get up to the keno booth to collect your winnings, as a new keno game will surely start up within five minutes.

Strategy number 2: always make sure to get back to the keno booth on time!

Assuming you do not trust yourself to beat that 5 minute margin each time, you always retain the option of using a "multi-race" card. These include the same set of your handpicked numbers on anywhere from two to 20 slips. When the max amount of rounds (matching the amount of tickets) is completed, you may then get off your lazy butt and go redeem your winnings.

Yet an additional choice is referred to as a "stray and play" keno slip, which generally allows you make number selection for 30 keno games or more. Golly, you can take vacation to France and not have to worry about getting back in time to collect your numbers. Most "stray and play" game tickets are good for up to a whole year after purchase!

And now you know a few needed techniques for winning keno. If you are a knowledgeable player, they might seem to be very obvious. Still, it will never hurt to study up on the basic practices, and if you are a newbie user, every tiny bit of direction will help make your keno wagering more fun.
