Keno was introduced in 200 before Christ by the Chinese military commander, Cheung Leung who utilized keno as a monetary resource for his declining army. The metropolis of Cheung was at war, and after a bit of time appeared to be looking at a national shortage of food with the dramatic decrease in supplies. Cheung Leung had to come up with a quick fix for the economic calamity and to create revenue for his military. He thusly designed the game we now know as keno and it was a wonderful success.

Keno used to be known as the White Pigeon Game, since the winning numbers were delivered by pigeons from larger locations to the smaller villages. The lottery ‘Keno’ was imported to America in the 1800s by Chinese migrants who migrated to the US for jobs. In those times, Keno used 120 numbers.

Today, Keno is generally gambled on with just 80 numbers in most of the US based casinos along with internet casinos. Keno is commonly liked today as a result of the relaxed nature of gambling the game and the simple fact that there are no expertise required to enjoy Keno. Despite the reality that the chances of succeeding are terrible, there is constantly the chance that you could win quite large with very little gaming investment.

Keno is played with 80 numbers and twenty numbers are picked each game. Players of Keno can pick from 2 to 10 numbers and gamble on them, as much or as little as they want to. The pay out of Keno is dependent on the wagers made and the roll out of matching numbers.

Keno grew in universal appeal in the United States near the close of the 1800’s when the Chinese characters were changed with more familiar, American numbers. Lotteries were not covered under the laws of gaming in the state of Nevada in 1931. The casinos renamed the ‘Chinese lotto’ to ‘horse race keno’ utilizing the notion that the numbers are horses and you are wanting your horses to place. When the Nevada government passed a law that levied a tax on off track wagering, the casinos swiftly changed the name to ‘Keno’.
