• Keno’s History

    [ English ]

    Keno was first played in two hundred before Christ by the Chinese army commander, Cheung Leung who utilized this game as a way to finance his declining forces. The city of Cheung was at war, and after a bit of time appeared to be looking at a national famine with the drastic drop in supplies. Cheung Leung needed to develop a rapid fix for the financial disaster and to acquire income for his military. He therefore developed the game we now know as keno and it was a fantastic success.

    Keno used to be referred to as the White Pigeon Game, because the winning numbers were sent out by pigeons from bigger cities to the smaller villages. The lotto ‘Keno’ was imported to America in the 1800s by Chinese migrants who came to the States for jobs. In those times, Keno was played with one hundred and twenty numbers.

    Today, Keno is regularly enjoyed with just 80 numbers in a majority of American brick and mortar casinos along with online casinos. Keno is mainly loved today as a consequence of the relaxed nature of wagering the game and the basic reality that there are no expertise needed to enjoy Keno. Despite the reality that the odds of getting a win are terrible, there is constantly the possibility that you could win quite large with little gambling investment.

    Keno is played with eighty numbers and 20 numbers are picked each game. Players of Keno can select from two to 10 numbers and wager on them, as much or as little as they want to. The payout of Keno is dependent on the wagers made and the matching of numbers.

    Keno grew in universal appeal in the United States near the close of the 19th century when the Chinese letters were changed with more familiar, US numbers. Lottos weren’t covered under the legalization of gambling in Nevada State in 1931. The casinos altered the name of the ‘Chinese lottery’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing the idea that the numbers are horses and you want your horses to come in. When a law passed that taxed off track betting, Nevada casinos swiftly changed the name to ‘Keno’.
