Keno is a game of pure randomness and is very similar to Lotto games. The game was brought over to the US by Chinese newcomers in the nineteenth century. As with lotto games, it is a dead easy to play, and it is enjoyable as substantial prizes are offered for very small bets. Keno is enjoyed at bars, clubs and recreation center all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another similarity with lotto games – horrid expectations.

Sensibly, Keno ensconced its way into casinos on the internet as it was a simple game to develop, and internet casino software operators wanted to capture the large land based Keno players on the internet. What was even more in the favor of internet casinos was that many people were accustomed to betting on Keno on video terminals, so the move on to the internet was less of a problem than say with vingt-et-un.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You start off by choosing between 4 and ten numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each selection is called a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can buy countless tickets for the same draw, and in many games you can even pre-buy for future games.

After you have submitted your choices, twenty balls with numbers will "drop" into a hopper from a tube. If enough of your numbers are drawn, you win. That’s all there is. You will obviously earn more, if more of your numbers hit, like with lotteries.

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

Easy? Yes. So there must be a catch? Yes. The gambling casino advantage with Keno is thirty percent or more, the WORST of any internet casino game. The expectation of hitting a number is 0.25percent. Keno is by a big margin the worst game you could possibly wager on. If you want a game of speculation play slots.
