• Keno’s History

    Keno was introduced in two hundred BC by the Chinese military commander, Cheung Leung who utilized this game as a way to finance his failing army. The city of Cheung was waging a battle, and after some time appeared to be looking at a country wide shortage of food with the excessive decrease in supplies. Cheung Leung needed to come up with a quick fix for the financial disaster and to acquire money for his military. He thusly invented the game we know today as keno and it was a fantastic success.

    Keno used to be referred to as the White Pigeon Game, seeing as the winning numbers were sent out by pigeons from larger locations to the tinier villages. The lotto ‘Keno’ was imported to America in the 19th century by Chinese immigrants who headed to the States to work. In those times, Keno was played with 120 numbers.

    Today, Keno is normally enjoyed with just 80 numbers in almost all of the US based casinos along with web casinos. Keno is commonly enjoyed today as a result of the laid back nature of wagering the game and the simple reality that there are little skills needed to enjoy Keno. Regardless of the reality that the odds of getting a win are horrible, there is constantly the chance that you will win quite big with little gaming investment.

    Keno is enjoyed with eighty numbers with 20 numbers picked each game. Players of Keno can choose from 2 to 10 numbers and bet 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 has grown in universal appeal in the United States since the end of the 19th century when the Chinese letters were replaced with , American numbers. Lottos were not covered under the legalization of gambling in the state of Nevada in Nineteen Thirty One. The casinos changed the name of the ‘Chinese lotto’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing the concept that the numbers are horses and you are wanting your horses to place. When a law passed that taxed off track wagering, casinos quickly altered the name to ‘Keno’.
