• The background of Keno

    Keno was introduced in two hundred BC by the Chinese army commander, Cheung Leung who used this game as a way to finance his failing forces. The metropolis of Cheung was waging a battle, and after a bit of time seemed to be looking at a national famine with the drastic decrease in supplies. Cheung Leung needed to come up with a quick response for the economic adversity and to acquire income for his army. He thusly created the game we know today as keno and it was a wonderful success.

    Keno was well-known as the White Pigeon Game, because the winning numbers were broadcast by pigeons from larger locations to the tinier villages. The lottery ‘Keno’ was brought to the US in the 19th century by Chinese immigrants who migrated to the US to work. In those times, Keno was played with 120 numbers.

    Today, Keno is normally played with eighty numbers in most of the US land based casinos along with web casinos. Keno is commonly enjoyed today as a consequence of the laid back nature of gambling the game and the basic fact that there are little expertise required to enjoy Keno. Regardless of the fact that the odds of coming away with a win are terrible, there is always the hope that you might hit quite big with very little gambling investment.

    Keno is played with 80 numbers and twenty numbers are selected each game. Gamblers of Keno can choose from two to 10 numbers and bet on them, whatever amount they are able to. The pay out of Keno is dependent on the bets made and the matching of numbers.

    Keno grew in popularity in the United States near the close of the 19th century when the Chinese letters were changed with , US numbers. Lottos weren’t covered under the laws of gambling in the state of Nevada in 1931. The casinos changed the name of the ‘Chinese lottery’ to ‘horse race keno’ utilizing the concept that the numbers are horses and you want your horses to come in. When the Nevada government passed a law that taxed off track gambling, the casinos quickly altered the name to ‘Keno’.
