Keno is a game of pure randomness and is very similar to Lotto games. The game was brought to the America by Chinese immigrants in the nineteenth century. As with lotto games, it’s a dead easy to enjoy, and it is appealing as big prizes are offered for very little wagers. Keno is played at bars, clubs and rec center all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another weakness with lotto games – horrendous odds.

Logically, Keno ensconced its way into casinos on the internet as it was a simple game to develop, and internet casino software owners wanted to entice the large brick and mortar Keno players on the internet. What was even more in the favor of online casinos was that many players were used to wagering on Keno on video screens, so the move on to the internet was hardly a barrier than say with blackjack.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You begin by choosing between four and 10 numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each choice is referred to as a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can purchase different tickets for the same draw, and in some games you can even pre-order for games in the future.

After you have submitted your selection, 20 numbered balls will "enter" into a capsule from a tube. If enough of your spots are drawn, you win. That simple. You will obviously amass more, if more of your spots come up, like with lottos.

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

Easy? Absolutely. So there must be a problem? Yeah. The house advantage with Keno is thirty percent or more, the WORST of any internet casino game. The expectation of landing on a number is 0.25percent. Keno is by a long margin the worst game you can possibly play. If you want a game of chance gamble on slots.
