Keno is a game of pure speculation and is very close to Lotto games. The game was brought over to the USA by Chinese expatriates in the nineteenth century. As with lottery games, it is a dead easy to play, and it is appealing as large jackpots are offered for very little bets. Keno is played at taverns, clubs and rec center all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another weak point with lotto games – horrid odds.

Sensibly, Keno hit upon its way into internet casinos as it was an easy game to create, and online casino owners wanted to capture the huge brick and mortar Keno players online. What was even more in the favour of online casinos was that many players were accustomed to wagering on Keno on video screens, so the move online was hardly a encumbrance than say with 21.

So here is how you play Keno. You begin by appointing between 4 and ten numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each choice is describe as a "spot". In many online keno games, you can buy countless tickets for the same draw, and in quite a few games you can even pre-order for future games.

Once you have submitted your choices, 20 balls with numbers will "enter" into a capsule from a tube. If enough of your spots are drawn, you win. It’s that easy. You will obviously come away with more, if more of your spots come up, like with lotteries.

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

Easy? Absolutely. So there has to be a catch? Yes. The casino edge with Keno is thirty percent or higher, the WORST of any online casino game. The chances of landing on a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a long margin the atrocious game you could possibly gamble on. If you are wanting a game of randomness gamble on slots.
