Keno is a game of pure chance and is very close to lottery games. The game was brought over to the U.S. by Chinese expatriates in the 19th century. As with lottery games, it is an absolutely easy to play, and it is enjoyable as large prizes are available for very small wagers. Keno is played at bars, clubs and rec center all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another similarity with lotto games – horrible odds.

Logically, Keno found its way into internet casinos as it was an easy game to create, and internet casino owners wanted to entice the huge brick and mortar Keno players online. What was even more in the favor of casinos on the internet was that many gamblers were accustomed to gambling on Keno on electronic screens, so the move online was a insignificant problem than say with chemin de fer.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You begin by appointing between 4 and ten numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each selection is called a "spot". In many online keno games, you can buy countless cards for the same draw, and in many games you can even pre-order for future games.

Once you have submitted your selection, twenty numbered balls will "enter" into a hopper from a barrel. If enough of your spots are drawn, you win. It is that easy. You will obviously come away with more, if more of your numbers appear, like with lottos.

Most keno internet games allow you to buy tickets between five cents and five dollars, and pay out in multiples of your ticket value. Jackpot winnings of up to $50,000 are not uncommon.

Easy? Yes. So there must be a catch? Absolutely. The house advantage with Keno is 30% or more, the WORST of any internet casino game. The chances of hitting a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a long shot the worst game you might possibly play. If you are looking for a game of randomness bet on slots.
