Keno is a game of pure randomness and is very similar to lottery games. The game was brought over to the US by Chinese migrants in the 19th century. As with lotto games, it’s an absolutely easy to play, and it is enjoyable as substantial jackpots are available for very small wagers. Keno is played at saloons, clubs and rec center all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another weakness with lottery games – horrendous expectations.

Sensibly, Keno found its way into casinos on the internet as it was a simple game to build, and online casino operators wanted to ensnare the big brick and mortar Keno fan base online. What was even more in the favor of internet casinos was that many players were used to gambling on Keno on video screens, so the move on to the internet was a insignificant problem than say with twenty-one.

So here is how you play Keno. You start off by choosing between 4 and ten numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each choice is referred to as a "spot". In many online keno games, you can buy countless tickets for the same draw, and in quite a few games you can even pre purchase for future games.

After you have submitted your selection, 20 balls with numbers will "enter" into a hopper from a tube. If enough of your spots are drawn, you win. That simple. You will obviously earn more, if more of your spots are landed on, like with lottos.

Most online keno games allow you to buy tickets between 5 cents and five dollars, and pay out in multiples of your card value. Jackpot fortunes of up to fifty thousand dollars are not uncommon.

Simple? Absolutely. So there should be a catch? Yes. The casino advantage with Keno is 30 percent or more, the WORST of any online casino game. The expectation of landing on a number is 0.25percent. Keno is by a long margin the worst game you can possibly wager on. If you are looking for a game of randomness gamble on slots.
