• The background of Keno

    [ English ]

    Keno was first played in 200 before Christ by the Chinese army commander, Cheung Leung who utilized keno as a way to finance his declining forces. The metropolis of Cheung was at war, and after a bit of time appeared to be looking at a country wide famine with the dramatic decrease in supplies. Cheung Leung needed to develop a rapid fix for the financial calamity and to acquire money for his army. He therefore invented the game we know today as keno and it was a fantastic success.

    Keno once was well-known as the White Pigeon Game, due to the fact that the winning numbers were broadcast by pigeons from bigger locations to the smaller villages. The lottery ‘Keno’ was imported to America in the 1800s by Chinese immigrants who came to the United States for jobs. In those times, Keno used one hundred and twenty numbers.

    Today, Keno is regularly enjoyed with 80 numbers in most of the US based casinos as well as internet casinos. Keno is commonly liked today as a result of the laid back nature of playing the game and the basic reality that there are little expertise required to play Keno. Regardless of the reality that the odds of winning are terrible, there is constantly the possibility that you could win quite big with a tiny gambling investment.

    Keno is played with 80 numbers with twenty numbers drawn each game. Gamblers of Keno can select from two to ten numbers and bet on them, as much or as little as they are able to. The pay out of Keno is dependent on the bets made and the matching of numbers.

    Keno grew in universal appeal in the US near the end of the 19th century when the Chinese characters were changed with more familiar, American numbers. Lotteries were not covered under the laws of wagering in Nevada State in Nineteen Thirty One. The casinos altered the name of the ‘Chinese lotto’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing the idea that the numbers are horses and you are looking for your horses to come in. When the Nevada government passed a law that taxed off track wagering, casinos swiftly changed the name to ‘Keno’.
