• The background of Keno

    [ English ]

    Keno was first played in two hundred before Christ by the Chinese army commander, Cheung Leung who utilized keno as a way to finance his declining army. The city of Cheung was waging a battle, and after a bit of time appeared to be facing national shortage of food with the excessive drop in supplies. Cheung Leung needed to create a rapid response for the financial disaster and to produce revenue for his forces. He thusly created the game we know today as keno and it was a fantastic success.

    Keno used to be known as the White Pigeon Game, due to the fact that the winning numbers were sent out by pigeons from bigger locations to the smaller towns. The lotto ‘Keno’ was imported to America in the 1800s by Chinese migrants who migrated to the US to work. In those times, Keno used 120 numbers.

    Today, Keno is typically wagered 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 betting the game and the basic fact that there are no expertise needed to enjoy Keno. Regardless of the fact that the odds of succeeding are terrible, there is always the possibility that you will hit quite large with very little gaming investment.

    Keno is played with 80 numbers with twenty numbers selected each game. Enthusiasts of Keno can select from two to ten numbers and gamble on them, whatever amount they want to. The payout of Keno is according to the wagers made and the matching of numbers.

    Keno has grown in popularity in the United States since the close of the 19th century when the Chinese letters were changed with more familiar, American numbers. Lotteries were not covered under the legalization of gambling in the state of Nevada in 1931. The casinos renamed the ‘Chinese lottery’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing the notion that the numbers are horses and you are looking for your horses to place. When a law passed that levied a tax on off track wagering, Nevada casinos swiftly altered the name to ‘Keno’.
