It might not commonly be thought of as the best game in the world of gaming, but keno has massive amounts of fanatical players. And it should! It’s a always thrilling lotto-type game that’s easy to learn, abundantly available in loads of assorted formats, and one that might return millions for people who learn its many subtle rules. But let’s deal with the beginner’s rules for now.

When describing keno to newbies, some gaming masters compare it to bingo. This is at least in some ways correct, in that both games are fundamentally numerical. Yet to carry that comparison too far will be to downplay the many unique characteristics that make keno so fun. Not like bingo, keno gamblers have the ability to select the numbers for each and every card.

Keno cards have a total of 80 numbers, but the player is given an extra degree of personal responsibility by being able to decide on as numerous (or as few) numbers as he or she needs. And it doesn’t take a super genius to come up with how to fill out a card: all you do is circle or otherwise mark all of your handpicked numbers with a every day oldmarker like you had when you were in grade 3.

After you’ve selected your numbers, carry the keno card back to the keno pit manager at the keno booth. The clerk will record your numbers and then hand you a receipt. Do not misplace this (potentially) valuable bit of paper! Even if the clerk remembers you and would like to help out, without a winning receipt in hand, you will collect exactly $.00 for your time spent.

And there you have strategy numero uno: always take care to keep your keno ticket. Let us get on to something a bit more useful, what do you think?

After you’ve checked off your numbers, get yourself into a comfortable keno booth and watch the action happen on the keno monitor. That is where the winning numbers appear for us. If you’ve got winners, mark your card accordingly. Be sure not to take too much time, or sit there congratulating yourself for too great a length of time. You really want to get back to the keno booth to redeem your winnings, and a new drawing will most likely begin within five minutes.

Strategy #2: always make sure to get back to the keno booth on time!

Assuming you don’t trust yourself to meet that five-minute deadline every time, you always retain the option of using a "multi-race" card. These include the same set of your chosen numbers on anywhere from two to twenty cards. When the maximum number of rounds (the same as the amount of tickets) is finished, you will then be able to get off your numb back side and go get your winnings.

Still another option is referred to as a "stray and play" keno card, which commonly allows you make number selection for thirty keno rounds or more. Hell, you can take vacation to Italy and not have to get uptight about getting back in time to get your numbers. Most "stray and play" game tickets are good for up to a whole year after you by it!

And now you are aware of a few necessary techniques for winning keno. If you are a discerning keno player, they might seem stupidly obvious. But it doesn’t hurt to study up on the basic techniques, and if you are a beginner player, every bit of information will help make your keno playing time more entertaining.
