Keno is a game of pure chance and is very similar to Lotto games. The game was brought over to the US of A by Chinese newcomers in the 19th aeon. As with lottery games, it is an absolutely easy to enjoy, and it is attractive as big fortunes are offered for very tiny bets. Keno is enjoyed at lounges, clubs and community centers all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another weak point with lottery games – terrible expectations.

Logically, Keno happen upon its way into internet casinos as it was an easy game to build, and online casino owners wanted to benefit from the huge brick and mortar Keno players on the internet. What was even more in the favour of internet casinos was that many people were used to wagering on Keno on electronic terminals, so the move on to the internet was hardly a barrier than say with chemin de fer.

So here is how you play Keno. You begin by choosing between 4 and ten numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each choice is referred to as a "spot". In many online keno games, you can buy different tickets for the same draw, and in many games you can even pre purchase for future games.

After you have submitted your choices, 20 balls with numbers will "drop" into a hopper from a barrel. If enough of your numbers are selected, you win. That simple. You will obviously come away with more, if more of your numbers are landed on, like with lottos.

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

Simple? Absolutely. So there has to be a catch? Yeah. The house advantage with Keno is 30% or more, the WORST of any internet casino game. The expectation of hitting a number is 0.25percent. Keno is by a long shot the worst game you can possibly wager on. If you are looking for a game of speculation gamble on slot machines.
