• Keno’s History

    Keno was introduced in 200 before Christ by the Chinese military leader, Cheung Leung who utilized keno as a financial resource for his declining forces. The city of Cheung was at war, and after awhile of war time seemed to be facing country wide famine with the dramatic decrease in supplies. Cheung Leung needed to develop a rapid fix for the financial adversity and to create revenue for his military. He thusly designed the game we now know as keno and it was a fantastic success.

    Keno used to be referred to as the White Pigeon Game, due to the fact that the winning numbers were delivered by pigeons from larger locations to the tinier villages. The lottery ‘Keno’ was brought to America in the 1800s by Chinese immigrants who came to the US to jobs. In those times, Keno was played with one hundred and twenty numbers.

    Today, Keno is regularly wagered on with 80 numbers in almost all of the US based casinos as well as internet casinos. Keno is commonly enjoyed today because of the relaxed nature of playing the game and the simple fact that there are little expertise required to enjoy Keno. Regardless of the reality that the chances of coming away with a win are horrible, there is constantly the hope that you could win quite big with a tiny gaming investment.

    Keno is played with eighty numbers with 20 numbers selected each round. Gamblers of Keno can choose from two to ten numbers and wager on them, as much or as little as they are able to. The payout 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 characters were changed with , American numbers. Lottos weren’t covered under the legalization of wagering in Nevada State in Nineteen Thirty One. The casinos adjusted the name of the ‘Chinese lottery’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing the concept that the numbers are horses and you want your horses to place. When the Nevada government passed a law that levied a tax on off track betting, casinos swiftly changed the name to ‘Keno’.
