Keno was introduced in two hundred BC by the Chinese military commander, Cheung Leung who utilized keno as a monetary resource for his failing forces. The metropolis of Cheung was waging a battle, and after some time seemed to be facing country wide famine with the drastic drop in supplies. Cheung Leung needed to develop a fast response for the financial disaster and to acquire income for his army. He thusly designed the game we now know as keno and it was a fantastic success.

Keno was known as the White Pigeon Game, because the winning numbers were broadcast by pigeons from bigger municipalities to the smaller towns. The lottery ‘Keno’ was imported to America in the 1800s by Chinese immigrants who migrated to the States for work. In those times, Keno was played with one hundred and twenty numbers.

Today, Keno is most often enjoyed with just 80 numbers in just about all of the US based casinos as well as net casinos. Keno is largely liked today as a consequence of the laid back nature of playing the game and the basic reality that there are little skills needed to enjoy Keno. Regardless of the fact that the chances of succeeding are horrible, there is constantly the chance that you could hit quite big with very little gambling investment.

Keno is played with 80 numbers with twenty numbers selected each game. Players of Keno can pick from two to ten numbers and wager on them, as much or as little as they are able to. The pay out of Keno is dependent on the bets made and the roll out of matching numbers.

Keno has grown in popularity in the United States since the end of the 1800’s when the Chinese characters were replaced with , American numbers. Lottos were not covered under the legalization of gambling in the state of Nevada in Nineteen Thirty One. The casinos renamed the ‘Chinese lotto’ to ‘horse race keno’ utilizing the idea that the numbers are horses and you are looking for your horses to come in. When the Nevada government passed a law that taxed off track wagering, the casinos quickly adjusted the name to ‘Keno’.
