Keno is a game of pure chance and is very similar to lottery games. The game was brought to the US by Chinese expatriates in the 19th aeon. As with lotto games, it is a very easy to play, and it is enchanting as large jackpots are available for very tiny bets. Keno is played at taverns, clubs and civic center all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another similarity with lotto games – horrid odds.

Sensibly, Keno ensconced its way into online casinos as it was a simple game to create, and online casino owners wanted to catch the big land based Keno players online. What was even more in the favour of internet casinos was that many people were used to wagering on Keno on video screens, so the move online was less of a problem than say with vingt-et-un.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You begin by choosing between four and 10 numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each selection is describe as a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can purchase multiple cards for the same draw, and in some games you can even pre-order for upcoming games.

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

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

Easy? Absolutely. So there must be a problem? Yes. The house edge with Keno is 30 percent or greater, the WORST of any online casino game. The chances of landing on a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a wide shot the awful game you might possibly gamble on. If you are looking for a game of luck gamble on slot machines.
