Keno was first played in two hundred before Christ by the Chinese army commander, Cheung Leung who utilized this game as a monetary resource for his failing army. The city of Cheung was at war, and after a bit of time seemed to be facing national famine with the excessive decrease in supplies. Cheung Leung needed to come up with a fast response for the financial adversity and to acquire income for his military. He thusly invented the game we now know as keno and it was a great success.

Keno was well-known as the White Pigeon Game, because the winning numbers were sent out by pigeons from larger locations to the tinier villages. The lotto ‘Keno’ was imported to America in the 19th century by Chinese immigrants who headed to the United States for jobs. In those times, Keno used 120 numbers.

Today, Keno is most often bet on with just 80 numbers in almost all of American brick and mortar casinos as well as web casinos. Keno is largely enjoyed today because of the laid back nature of gambling the game and the basic fact that there are no expertise required to enjoy Keno. Regardless of the fact that the odds of coming away with a win are appalling, there is constantly the possibility that you will hit quite large with a tiny gambling investment.

Keno is enjoyed with 80 numbers with 20 numbers selected each game. Players of Keno can choose from two to 10 numbers and wager on them, as much or as little as they want to. The payout of Keno is according to the wagers made and the matching of numbers.

Keno has grown in acceptance in the United States since the end of the 19th century when the Chinese characters were changed with more familiar, American numbers. Lottos were not covered under the laws of wagering in Nevada State in 1931. The casinos renamed the ‘Chinese lotto’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing the notion that the numbers are horses and you are looking for your horses to come in. When a law passed that taxed off track gambling, casinos swiftly changed the name to ‘Keno’.
