Keno is a game of pure randomness and is very close to Lotto games. The game was brought over to the US by Chinese expatriates in the nineteenth aeon. As with lotto games, it is a dead easy to enjoy, and it is appealing as big prizes are available for very little wagers. Keno is played at saloons, clubs and community centers all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another characteristic with lottery games – horrid odds.

By reason, Keno found its way into internet casinos as it was an easy game to create, and internet casino owners wanted to benefit from the huge brick and mortar Keno fan base on the internet. What was even more in the favour of online casinos was that many players were accustomed to wagering on Keno on electronic terminals, so the move online was less of a hurdle than say with 21.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You start off by choosing between 4 and 10 numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each selection is called a "spot". In many online keno games, you can purchase multiple tickets for the same draw, and in a few games you can even pre purchase for games in the future.

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

Most keno internet games allow you to purchase tickets between 5 cents and five dollars, and pay out in multiples of your ticket value. Jackpot fortunes of up to $50 000 are not uncommon.

Simple? Yes. 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 expectation of hitting a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a long shot the worst game you might possibly gamble on. If you are seeking a game of randomness bet on slot machines.
