• Keno’s History

    [ English ]

    Keno was created in two hundred before Christ by the Chinese army commander, Cheung Leung who used keno as a monetary resource for his declining army. The metropolis of Cheung was waging a battle, and after a bit of time appeared to be facing national famine with the excessive decrease in supplies. Cheung Leung had to create a quick response for the financial disaster and to create income for his military. He therefore designed the game we know today as keno and it was a fantastic success.

    Keno was referred to as the White Pigeon Game, seeing as the winning numbers were broadcast by pigeons from bigger cities to the smaller villages. The lottery ‘Keno’ was brought to America in the 1800s by Chinese migrants who came to the United States for jobs. In those times, Keno was played with one hundred and twenty numbers.

    Today, Keno is typically wagered on with 80 numbers in a majority of American based casinos as well as online casinos. Keno is commonly liked today as a consequence of the relaxed nature of wagering the game and the simple reality that there are little expertise required to enjoy Keno. Regardless of the fact that the chances of coming away with a win are horrible, there is constantly the hope that you might win quite big with little gambling investment.

    Keno is enjoyed with eighty numbers with twenty numbers selected each game. Enthusiasts of Keno can select from two to 10 numbers and gamble on them, whatever amount they are able to. The payout of Keno is dependent on the wagers 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 replaced with , American numbers. Lottos were not covered under the legalization of gaming in Nevada State in 1931. The casinos altered the name of the ‘Chinese lotto’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing the concept that the numbers are horses and you are wanting your horses to place. When the Nevada government passed a law that levied a tax on off track betting, casinos quickly adjusted the name to ‘Keno’.
