It won’t commonly be considered the sexiest game in the world of betting, but keno has massive amounts of fanatical supporters. Why wouldn’t it? It’s a always exciting lotto-style game that’s simple to learn, readily available in lots of different variations, and one that will yield mega-dollars for people who learn its innumerable subtle nuances. But let’s begin with the beginner’s rules here.

When describing keno to beginners, some betting connoisseurs compare it to the lottery. This is at least tolerably apt, in that each game is essentially numerical. But to carry that comparison too far will be to belittle the innumerable unique traits that make keno so compelling. Not like bingo, keno users have the freedom to select the numbers for every card.

Keno cards have a total of eighty numbers, but the gambler is furnished with an increased level of personal responsibility by being able to determine as numerous (or as few) numbers as he or she needs. And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out how to fill out a card: all you do is circle or otherwise mark each of your desired numbers with a ordinary#2 pencil like you used when you were in grade 3.

Once you’ve marked your numbers, take the game card back to the nice person at the keno booth. The nice person will record those numbers and then hand you a receipt. Don’t misplace this (potentially) expensive piece of paper! Even if the keno pit manager remembers your loud shirt and wants help out, without a winning receipt in hand, you will get exactly $.00 for your efforts.

And there you have strategy #1: always take care to keep your keno receipt. Let us get on to something a little bit more complicated, ok?

Now that you’ve marked your numbers, get into a comfy keno booth and see the action unfold on the keno monitor. That’s where the winning numbers are displayed for us. If you checked winning numbers, mark your card appropriately. Make sure not to move to slowly, or sit there congratulating yourself for too great a length of time. You are required to get up to the keno booth to get your winnings, since a new drawing will most likely start within five minutes.

Strategy #2: always get back to the keno stand on time!

Since you can not trust yourself to meet that five-minute deadline each and every time, you always retain the option of using a "multi-race" ticket. These include the same set of your desired numbers on anywhere from 2 to twenty slips. When the max number of games (the same as the number of tickets) is played, you will then be able to get off your numb rump and go get your winnings.

Another alternative is referred to as a "stray and play" keno slip, which generally allows you make number selection for 30 rounds or more. Gosh, you can take a Swedish massage and not have to get uptight about getting back in time to collect your winnings. Most "stray and play" tickets are good for up to a whole year after it’s bought!

So now you have learned a handful of needed schemes for winning keno. If you are a knowledgeable keno player, they may seem quite obvious. However, it doesn’t hurt to study up on the basic techniques, and if you are a novice player, every little bit of information will help make your keno experience more exciting.
