• The background of Keno

    Keno was first played in two hundred BC by the Chinese army leader, Cheung Leung who utilized keno as a financial resource for his failing forces. The metropolis of Cheung was waging a battle, and after a bit of time appeared to be looking at a country wide famine with the dramatic drop in supplies. Cheung Leung had to develop a rapid fix for the economic adversity and to produce revenue for his military. He thusly developed the game we now know as keno and it was a wonderful success.

    Keno used to be well-known as the White Pigeon Game, seeing as the winning numbers were delivered by pigeons from larger municipalities to the smaller villages. The lotto ‘Keno’ was brought to America in the 1800s by Chinese migrants who headed to the United States to jobs. In those times, Keno was played with 120 numbers.

    Today, Keno is generally bet on with just 80 numbers in a majority of American land based casinos along with online casinos. Keno is commonly liked today because of the laid back nature of wagering the game and the basic fact that there are little skills needed to enjoy Keno. Despite the fact that the chances of succeeding are horrible, there is constantly the possibility that you will hit quite big with little gambling investment.

    Keno is played with 80 numbers with twenty numbers drawn each round. Players of Keno can choose from two to 10 numbers and wager on them, whatever amount they are able to. The payout of Keno is according to the wagers made and the roll out of matching numbers.

    Keno grew in popularity in the United States near the end of the 19th century when the Chinese letters were changed with , US numbers. Lottos weren’t covered under the laws of wagering in Nevada State in 1931. The casinos renamed the ‘Chinese lottery’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing the concept that the numbers are horses and you are looking for your horses to place. When the Nevada government passed a law that levied a tax on off track gambling, casinos swiftly altered the name to ‘Keno’.
