Keno is a game of pure speculation and is very similar to Lotto games. The game was brought to the USA by Chinese expatriates in the nineteenth aeon. As with lottery games, it’s a dead easy to enjoy, and it is appealing as substantial jackpots are available for very small bets. Keno is played at lounges, clubs and community centers all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another weakness with lottery games – horrendous odds.

Rationally, Keno ensconced its way into online casinos as it was a simple game to create, and internet casino operators wanted to ensnare the large land based Keno players online. What was even more in the favour of online casinos was that many gamblers were used to playing Keno on electronic screens, so the move on to the internet was hardly a problem than say with vingt-et-un.

So here is how you play Keno. You start off by selecting between four and ten numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each selection is referred to as a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can buy different cards for the same draw, and in quite a few games you can even pre purchase for upcoming games.

Once you have submitted your selection, 20 balls with numbers will "enter" into a hopper from a tube. If enough of your spots are selected, you win. That simple. You will obviously gain more, if more of your spots surface, like with lotteries.

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

Simple? Absolutely. So there has to be a problem? Yeah. The casino advantage with Keno is 30% or greater, the WORST of any online casino game. The expectation of hitting a number is 0.25percent. Keno is by a big shot the atrocious game you might possibly play. If you are wanting a game of speculation wager on slot machines.
