Keno is a game of pure luck and is very similar to Lotto games. The game was brought to the America by Chinese newcomers in the nineteenth century. As with lottery games, it’s a dead easy to enjoy, and it is enchanting as big fortunes are offered for very little wagers. Keno is played at bars, clubs and community centers all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another weakness with lottery games – horrendous odds.

Rationally, Keno hit upon its way into casinos on the internet as it was a simple game to establish, and internet casino software owners wanted to capture the big brick and mortar Keno players online. What was even more in the favour of casinos on the internet was that many people were used to betting on Keno on video terminals, so the move on to the internet was a insignificant barrier than say with blackjack.

So here is how you play Keno. You begin by selecting between four and ten numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each selection is called a "spot". In many online keno games, you can buy different cards for the same draw, and in many games you can even pre-order for upcoming games.

Once you have submitted your choices, 20 numbered balls will "drop" into a hopper from a barrel. If enough of your spots are selected, you win. It’s that easy. You will obviously amass more, if more of your numbers appear, like with lottos.

Most internet keno games allow you to buy tickets between 5 cents and five dollars, and pay out in multiples of your ticket value. Jackpot prizes of up to 50,000 dollars are not uncommon.

Easy? Yes. So there has to be a catch? Yes. The gambling casino advantage with Keno is 30% or higher, the WORST of any online casino game. The expectation of landing on a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a long margin the awful game you might possibly wager on. If you are looking for a game of chance bet on slot machines.
