Keno is a game of pure luck and is very close to lottery games. The game was brought over to the America by Chinese newcomers in the nineteenth aeon. As with lottery games, it is an absolutely simple to play, and it is attractive as big prizes are offered for very tiny bets. Keno is enjoyed at taverns, clubs and community centers all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another similarity with lottery games – horrible expectations.

Sensibly, Keno found its way into online casinos as it was a simple game to establish, and internet casino operators wanted to capture the huge land based Keno fan base online. What was even more in the favor of casinos on the internet was that many gamblers were accustomed to gambling on Keno on video terminals, so the move on to the internet was less of a encumbrance than say with twenty-one.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You start off by appointing between four and 10 numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each choice is describe as a "spot". In many online keno games, you can purchase different tickets for the same draw, and in a few games you can even pre-buy for games in the future.

After you have submitted your selection, twenty numbered balls will "enter" into a hopper from a tube. If enough of your spots are drawn, you win. That is all there is. You will obviously amass more, if more of your numbers surface, like with lottos.

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

Simple? Yes. So there has to be a catch? Yes. The house edge with Keno is 30 percent or more, the WORST of any internet casino game. The chances of landing on a number is 0.25percent. Keno is by a long shot the awful game you can possibly gamble on. If you want a game of speculation bet on slots.
