It might not generally be looked at as the funnest game in the realm of betting, but keno has loads of keen supporters. And it should! It’s a routinely exciting lotto-ish game that’s a snap to learn, readily available in loads of different styles, and one that might pay out millions of dollars for gamblers who learn its countless subtle rules. But let’s deal with the beginner’s rules for now.

When describing keno to newcomers, some betting connoisseurs compare it to bingo. This is at least to a certain degree correct, in that both games are generally numerical. Yet to carry that comparison too far might be to discount the great many unique traits that make keno so fun. Not like bingo, keno enthusiasts have the power to choose the numbers for each card.

Keno cards have a grand total of eighty numbers, but the user is granted an additional level of personal responsibility by being able to pick as numerous (or as few) numbers as she thinks is appropriate. And it doesn’t take a super genius to come up with how to fill out a card: all you do is circle or otherwise mark all of your selected numbers with a standardmarker like you used when you were in school.

Once you’ve selected your numbers, take the card back to the nice person at the keno stand. The person will record your numbers and then hand you a receipt. Make sure no to lose this (potentially) valuable bit of paper! Even if the keno pit manager remembers your pretty face and would like to help out, without a winning receipt in hand, you will be given exactly $.00 for your actions.

So, there you have strategy #1: always take care to keep your keno slip. Let us move to something a bit more useful, ok?

Once you’ve selected your numbers, get into a comfortable keno booth and see the action unfold on the big keno monitor. This is where the winning numbers show up for all to see. If you have winners, mark your card appropriately. Make sure not to dally, or sit there congratulating yourself for too great a length of time. You must get up to the keno stand to collect your winnings, and then a new round of keno will certainly begin within a few minutes.

Strategy number two: always make sure to get back to the keno booth on time!

Since you can’t trust yourself to make that five-minute deadline every time, you always retain the option of buying a "multi-race" ticket. These include the same set of your picked numbers on anywhere from two to twenty tickets. When the max amount of rounds (matching the number of tickets) is played out, you may then get off your numb rump and go redeem your winnings.

Yet an additional alternative is referred to as a "stray and play" keno ticket, which commonly allows you make number choices for thirty rounds or more. Golly, you can take vacation to Italy and not have to worry about getting back in time to collect your numbers. Most "stray and play" game tickets are good for up to a whole year after purchase!

So now you have learned a number of indispensable schemes for winning keno. If you are a good player, they might seem very obvious. But it does not hurt to study up on the basic methods, and if you are a new keno player, every tiny bit of information will help make your keno games more captivating.
