Keno is a game of pure chance and is very similar to Lotto games. The game was brought over to the USA by Chinese immigrants in the nineteenth century. As with lottery games, it’s a very simple to play, and it is enjoyable as large jackpots are available for very tiny wagers. Keno is enjoyed at bars, clubs and recreation center all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another similarity with lotto games – horrid expectations.

Understandably, Keno ensconced its way into internet casinos as it was an easy game to establish, and casino software owners wanted to ensnare the giant land based Keno fan base on the internet. What was even more in the favor of internet casinos was that many players were used to wagering on Keno on video screens, so the move on to the internet was hardly a encumbrance than say with 21.

So here is how you play Keno. You begin by choosing between 4 and ten numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each choice is referred to as a "spot". In many internet keno games, you can purchase multiple tickets for the same draw, and in some games you can even pre-buy for future games.

After you have submitted your choices, 20 balls with numbers will "enter" into a capsule from a barrel. If enough of your spots are drawn, you win. That is all there is. You will obviously win more, if more of your numbers are landed on, like with lottos.

Most online 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 dollars are not uncommon.

Easy? Yeah. So there has to be a problem? Absolutely. The house edge with Keno is thirty percent or more, the WORST of any internet casino game. The odds of hitting a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a long shot the atrocious game you could possibly bet on. If you want a game of speculation bet on slot machines.
