• Keno’s History

    Keno was created in 200 before Christ by the Chinese army commander, Cheung Leung who used this game as a way to finance his failing forces. The metropolis of Cheung was waging a battle, and after some time seemed to be facing national famine with the excessive decrease in supplies. Cheung Leung had to create a fast fix for the financial calamity and to acquire money for his forces. He thusly designed the game we now know as keno and it was a fantastic success.

    Keno was well-known as the White Pigeon Game, because the winning numbers were delivered by pigeons from bigger municipalities to the tinier villages. The lotto ‘Keno’ was imported to the United States in the 1800s by Chinese immigrants who migrated to the US to jobs. In those times, Keno used 120 numbers.

    Today, Keno is typically wagered on with eighty numbers in most of the US land based casinos along with web casinos. Keno is largely enjoyed today because of the laid back nature of betting the game and the basic fact that there are little skills required to enjoy Keno. Regardless of the reality that the odds of coming away with a win are appalling, there is always the hope that you might win quite big with a tiny gambling investment.

    Keno is played with eighty numbers and twenty numbers are picked each game. Players of Keno can pick from 2 to 10 numbers and wager on them, whatever amount they are able to. The payout of Keno is dependent on the bets made and the roll out of matching numbers.

    Keno has grown in popularity in the US since the close of the 19th century when the Chinese letters were changed with , American numbers. Lotteries weren’t covered under the legalization of wagering in the state of Nevada in Nineteen Thirty One. The casinos adjusted the name of the ‘Chinese lotto’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing 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 gambling, the casinos quickly changed the name to ‘Keno’.
