Keno was created in two hundred BC by the Chinese military leader, Cheung Leung who utilized this game as a financial resource for his declining army. The metropolis of Cheung was at war, and after some time appeared to be facing national famine with the dramatic decrease in supplies. Cheung Leung needed to come up with a rapid response for the financial disaster and to create money for his military. He thusly designed the game we now know as keno and it was a wonderful success.

Keno was referred to as the White Pigeon Game, since the winning numbers were sent out by pigeons from bigger cities to the lesser towns. The lotto ‘Keno’ was brought to the US in the 1800s by Chinese expatriates who came to the States to work. In those times, Keno used 120 numbers.

Today, Keno is most often played with eighty numbers in most of American based casinos along with web casinos. Keno is commonly loved today as a consequence of the relaxed nature of playing the game and the basic fact that there are no skills required to enjoy Keno. Despite the reality that the chances of succeeding are terrible, there is always the chance that you might win quite big with very little gaming investment.

Keno is enjoyed with eighty numbers and twenty numbers are picked each game. Enthusiasts of Keno can choose from two to ten numbers and wager on them, as much or as little as they are able to. The pay out of Keno is according to the wagers made and the matching of numbers.

Keno grew in acceptance in the United States near the close of the 19th century when the Chinese letters were changed with more familiar, US numbers. Lottos weren’t covered under the legalization of gambling in Nevada State in 1931. The casinos renamed the ‘Chinese lotto’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing the idea that the numbers are horses and you want your horses to place. When the Nevada government passed a law that levied a tax on off track wagering, Nevada casinos swiftly adjusted the name to ‘Keno’.
