• Think carefully Before You Bet on Keno

    [ English | Deutsch | Español | Français | Italiano ]

    Keno is a casino game of plain chance and is very similar to lottery games. The game was imported to america by Chinese newcomers in the 1800’s. As with lotto games, it’s a very easy to wager, and it is appealing as large jackpots are available for astonishingly minute wagers. Keno is bet on at pubs, clubs and civic centers all over the world today. Unfortunately it has other similarities with lotto games – horrendous odds.

    Logically, Keno found its way into web betting houses as it was an easy game to build, and casino operators wanted to capture the huge land based Keno fan base on the net. What was even more for online casinos was that many players were accustomed to gambling on Keno on video terminals, so the shift online was less of a hurdle than say with black jack.

    So here is how you bet on Keno. You start by choosing between four and 10 numbers from a set of 80 numbers. Each choice is called a "spot". In most web keno games, you can purchase numerous tickets for the same draw, and in certain games you can even pre buy for up-coming games.

    Once you have submitted your picks, twenty numbered balls will "fall" into a tube from a barrel. If sufficient of your numbers are drawn, you succeed. It’s that easy. You’ll certainly earn more if more of your selected spots are drawn, like with lotteries. Most net keno games permit you to purchase tickets ranging from five cents and $5, and pay out in multiples of your ticket value. JackpotGrand prizes of up to 50 000 dollars are not strange.

    Easy? Yes. So there has to be a catch? Absolutely. The house edge with Keno is 30% or more, the WORST of any web casino game. The chances of landing on a number is 0.25percent. Keno is by a big margin the absolute worst game you could probably play. If you want a game of chance wager on slot machines. If you want to throw cash away, gamble on Keno. Very few people really make any meaningful earnings.
