So here is how you play Keno. You begin by choosing between 4 and 10 numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each selection is called a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can purchase multiple cards for the same draw, and in a handful games you can even pre-order for games in the future.

Once you have submitted your choices, 20 balls with numbers will "enter" into a hopper from a barrel. If enough of your spots are selected, you win. It is that easy. You will obviously win more, if more of your spots hit, like with lottos.

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

The chances of hitting a number is 0.25percent. Keno is by a long shot the worst game you could possibly gamble on. If you are wanting a game of luck bet on slot machines.
