Keno is a game of pure chance and is very close to Lotto games. The game was brought to the US of A by Chinese immigrants in the nineteenth aeon. As with lotto games, it is a very simple to play, and it is enjoyable as large jackpots are available for very little wagers. Keno is played at taverns, clubs and rec center all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another weak point with lotto games – terrible expectations.

Rationally, Keno found its way into internet casinos as it was an easy game to develop, and internet casino operators wanted to capture the huge land based Keno players on the internet. What was even more in the favour of internet casinos was that many people were used to playing Keno on electronic screens, so the move online was a insignificant encumbrance than say with vingt-et-un.

So here is how you play Keno. You begin by selecting between 4 and ten numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each choice is called a "spot". In many online keno games, you can purchase different cards for the same draw, and in many games you can even pre-order for future games.

After you have submitted your choices, twenty balls with numbers will "drop" into a hopper from a barrel. If enough of your spots are selected, you win. That simple. You will obviously come away with more, if more of your spots come up, like with lottos.

Most online keno games allow you to buy cards between 5 cents and $5, and pay out in multiples of your card value. Jackpot prizes of up to $50 000 are not uncommon.

Easy? Yeah. So there should be a problem? Absolutely. The gambling casino edge with Keno is 30% or higher, the WORST of any internet casino game. The odds of landing on a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a long margin the worst game you can possibly play. If you want a game of chance play slot machines.
