Keno is a game of pure randomness and is very close to lottery games. The game was brought to the USA by Chinese expatriates in the nineteenth century. As with lotto games, it is an absolutely easy to play, and it is appealing as large fortunes are available for very small bets. Keno is played at taverns, clubs and community centers all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another similarity with lottery games – terrible odds.

Rationally, Keno found its way into online casinos as it was a simple game to build, and casino owners wanted to ensnare the giant brick and mortar Keno fan base on the internet. What was even more in the favor of internet casinos was that many players were accustomed to gambling on Keno on electronic terminals, so the move online was hardly a hurdle than say with chemin de fer.

So here is how you play Keno. You start off by appointing between 4 and 10 numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each selection is called a "spot". In many online keno games, you can purchase countless cards for the same draw, and in a handful games you can even pre purchase for future games.

Once you have submitted your choices, twenty numbered balls will "enter" into a capsule from a tube. If enough of your numbers are picked, you win. It is that easy. You will obviously earn more, if more of your numbers hit, like with lottos.

Most online keno games allow you to buy tickets between 5c and $5, and pay out in multiples of your card value. Jackpot winnings of up to fifty thousand dollars are not uncommon.

Simple? Absolutely. So there has to be a problem? Yes. The gambling casino advantage with Keno is 30 percent or greater, the WORST of any online casino game. The expectation of landing on a number is 0.25percent. Keno is by a big margin the awful game you might possibly bet on. If you are seeking a game of randomness play slot machines.
