• The History of Keno

    Keno was first played in 200 before Christ by the Chinese military commander, Cheung Leung who used keno as a way to finance his declining army. The metropolis of Cheung was at war, and after a bit of time seemed to be facing country wide famine with the dramatic drop in supplies. Cheung Leung needed to create a rapid response for the economic adversity and to produce revenue for his forces. He thusly invented the game we know today as keno and it was a wonderful success.

    Keno was well-known as the White Pigeon Game, seeing as the winning numbers were sent out by pigeons from bigger locations to the lesser villages. The lotto ‘Keno’ was brought to the US in the 19th century by Chinese immigrants who came to the United States for jobs. In those times, Keno was played with 120 numbers.

    Today, Keno is typically played with 80 numbers in almost all of American based casinos along with net casinos. Keno is largely enjoyed today as a result of the relaxed nature of playing the game and the basic reality that there are little skills needed to enjoy Keno. Regardless of the reality that the chances of winning are horrible, there is always the chance that you will hit quite large with a tiny gambling investment.

    Keno is enjoyed with eighty numbers and twenty numbers are drawn each game. Players of Keno can select from 2 to ten numbers and gamble on them, as much or as little as they are able to. The payout of Keno is according to the bets made and the matching of numbers.

    Keno has grown in universal appeal in the United States since the close of the 1800’s when the Chinese characters were replaced with , American numbers. Lotteries weren’t covered under the laws of gambling in Nevada State in 1931. The casinos adjusted the name of the ‘Chinese lottery’ to ‘horse race keno’ utilizing the notion that the numbers are horses and you are wanting your horses to come in. When a law passed that levied a tax on off track betting, the casinos swiftly altered the name to ‘Keno’.
