Keno was created in two hundred BC by the Chinese army commander, Cheung Leung who utilized this game as a financial resource for his declining army. The metropolis of Cheung was at war, and after a bit of time appeared to be looking at a country wide shortage of food with the dramatic decrease in supplies. Cheung Leung had to develop a quick response for the economic adversity and to create revenue for his military. He, as it follows created the game we now know as keno and it was a great success.

Keno once was referred to as the White Pigeon Game, since the winning numbers were broadcast by pigeons from larger cities to the tinier villages. The lotto ‘Keno’ was imported to the USA in the 19th century by Chinese migrants who came to the US for work. In those times, Keno was played with 120 numbers.

Today, Keno is regularly gambled on with 80 numbers in most of the US brick and mortar casinos as well as online casinos. Keno is mainly liked today as a result of the relaxed nature of betting the game and the simple fact that there are little skills required to enjoy Keno. Despite the fact that the odds of winning are appalling, there is always the possibility that you could hit quite big with a tiny gaming investment.

Keno is enjoyed with 80 numbers and twenty numbers are drawn each round. Gamblers of Keno can pick from 2 to 10 numbers and bet on them, as much or as little as they are able to. The payout of Keno is dependent on the wagers made and the matching of numbers.

Keno has grown in acceptance in the US since the close of the 19th century when the Chinese characters were changed with , US numbers. Lottos were not covered under the laws of gambling in Nevada State in Nineteen Thirty One. The casinos changed the name of the ‘Chinese lotto’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing the idea that the numbers are horses and you are wanting your horses to place. When a law passed that levied a tax on off track gambling, casinos quickly altered the name to ‘Keno’.
