It will not often be seen as the most lucrative game in the world of betting, but keno has millions of devoted followers. As well it should! It’s a consistently exciting lottery-style game that’s easy to learn, abundantly available in a number of different styles, and one that will return millions of dollars for players who master its heaps of subtle nuances. But let’s begin with the basic rules here.

When describing keno to newcomers, some wagering pros compare it to lotto. This is at least to some extent correct, in that both games are fundamentally numerical. But to take that comparison too far can be to downplay the great many unique traits that make keno so exciting. Not like bingo, keno players have the ability to pick the numbers for each card.

Keno cards have a grand total of eighty numbers, but the gambler is granted an extra level of personal responsibility by being able to determine as many (or as few) numbers as she wants. And it doesn’t take a keno superstar to come up with how to fill out a card: all you do is circle or otherwise mark all your picked numbers with a normalmarker like you had back in the day.

After you’ve checked your numbers, take the card back to the girl at the keno booth. The keno pit manager will record those numbers and then give you a receipt. Make sure no to lose this (potentially) expensive piece of paper! Even if the clerk remembers your loud shirt and would like to help out, without a winning receipt with you, you will collect precisely $.00 for your time spent.

So, there you have strategy numero uno: always take care to keep your keno receipt. Let us move to something a little bit more complicated, ok?

Once you’ve picked out your numbers, settle into a nice keno booth and observe the action take place on the keno monitor. That’s where the winning numbers are displayed for us. If you marked winning numbers, mark your card accordingly. Sake care not to dally, or sit there congratulating yourself for too great a length of time. You must get back to the keno stand to get your winnings, and then a new keno game will certainly start within five minutes.

Strategy number two: always go back to the keno booth on time!

Assuming you can not trust yourself to beat that five-minute margin each and every time, you always retain the option of purchasing a "multi-race" card. These include the same set of your selected numbers on anywhere from 2 to 20 tickets. When the max number of keno games (the same as the number of tickets) is played out, you should then get off your numb butt and go get your winnings.

Another alternative is known as a "stray and play" keno slip, which normally allows you make number choices for 30 rounds or more. Hell, you can take vacation to Italy and not have to get uptight about getting back in time to retrieve your numbers. Most "stray and play" tickets are good for up to a whole year after you purchase it!

And now you are aware of a number of needed methods for winning keno. If you are a skillful keno player, they might appear to be incredibly obvious. However, it does not hurt to study up on the basics, and if you are a beginner keno player, every bit of information will help make your keno wagering more entertaining.
