• The background of Keno

    Keno was introduced in two hundred before Christ by the Chinese military leader, Cheung Leung who utilized this game as a financial resource for his failing army. The city of Cheung was at war, and after a bit of time appeared to be looking at a country wide famine with the dramatic drop in supplies. Cheung Leung needed to come up with a quick response for the financial calamity and to acquire revenue for his military. He thusly invented the game we know today as keno and it was a fantastic success.

    Keno used to be known as the White Pigeon Game, because the winning numbers were sent out by pigeons from larger municipalities to the tinier towns. The lotto ‘Keno’ was brought to America in the 19th century by Chinese expatriates who migrated to the United States to work. In those times, Keno used one hundred and twenty numbers.

    Today, Keno is regularly gambled on with 80 numbers in most of American based casinos as well as web casinos. Keno is commonly loved today because of the relaxed nature of playing the game and the simple fact that there are no skills required to enjoy Keno. Regardless of the fact that the odds of winning are horrible, there is constantly the hope that you might hit quite large with a tiny gaming investment.

    Keno is enjoyed with eighty numbers and 20 numbers are drawn each round. Gamblers of Keno can select from two to ten numbers and gamble on them, whatever amount they are able to. The payout of Keno is according to the bets made and the roll out of matching numbers.

    Keno has grown in popularity in the US since the end of the 1800’s when the Chinese letters were changed with more familiar, American numbers. Lottos weren’t covered under the laws of gaming in Nevada State in Nineteen Thirty One. The casinos renamed the ‘Chinese lottery’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing the concept that the numbers are horses and you want your horses to place. When a law passed that taxed off track betting, Nevada casinos swiftly adjusted the name to ‘Keno’.
