Keno is a game of pure luck and is very similar to lottery games. The game was brought to the U.S.A by Chinese immigrants in the nineteenth aeon. As with lottery games, it’s a dead easy to play, and it is appealing as large prizes are offered for very tiny wagers. Keno is played at bars, clubs and civic center all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another weakness with lotto games – horrid odds.

Understandably, Keno hit upon its way into casinos on the internet as it was an easy game to build, and internet casino operators wanted to catch the large brick and mortar Keno fan base online. What was even more in the favour of online casinos was that many people were accustomed to playing Keno on video terminals, so the move on to the internet was hardly a problem than say with twenty-one.

So here is how you play Keno. You begin by selecting between 4 and ten numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each selection is called a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can purchase countless tickets for the same draw, and in some games you can even pre purchase for games in the future.

Once you have submitted your choices, twenty numbered balls will "drop" into a hopper from a tube. If enough of your spots are drawn, you win. That is all there is. You will obviously earn more, if more of your numbers appear, like with lotteries.

Most keno internet games allow you to buy tickets between 5c 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 should be a catch? Yeah. The casino edge with Keno is thirty percent or higher, the WORST of any internet casino game. The expectation of hitting a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a long margin the worst game you could possibly bet on. If you are wanting a game of randomness bet on slots.
