Keno is a game of pure speculation and is very close to Lotto games. The game was brought to the U.S. by Chinese newcomers in the 19th aeon. As with lotto games, it is a very easy to enjoy, and it is appealing as substantial jackpots are offered for very little wagers. Keno is enjoyed at bars, clubs and recreation center all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another weak point with lotto games – horrendous expectations.

Rationally, Keno found its way into internet casinos as it was a simple game to establish, and online casino software operators wanted to entice the huge brick and mortar Keno players online. What was even more in the favor of casinos on the internet was that many players were used to gambling on Keno on electronic terminals, so the move on to the internet was a insignificant encumbrance than say with 21.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You start off by selecting between four and ten numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each selection is called a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can purchase different cards for the same draw, and in some games you can even pre-order for upcoming games.

After you have submitted your selection, 20 balls with numbers will "drop" into a hopper from a tube. If enough of your spots are drawn, you win. That simple. You will obviously gain more, if more of your spots surface, like with lotteries.

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

Easy? Yes. So there must be a problem? Absolutely. The house advantage with Keno is 30 percent or higher, the WORST of any internet casino game. The expectation of landing on a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a long shot the worst game you might possibly bet on. If you are wanting a game of speculation play slot machines.
