• Think Long And Hard Prior to Playing Keno

    Keno is a game of pure randomness and is very similar to Lotto games. The game was brought over to the America by Chinese immigrants in the 19th century. As with lotto games, it’s a dead simple to play, and it is appealing as substantial fortunes are offered for very tiny bets. Keno is enjoyed at taverns, clubs and civic center all over the world today. Unfortunately it shares another similarity with lottery games – horrendous odds.

    Understandably, Keno found its way into internet casinos as it was a simple game to establish, and online casino owners wanted to capture the huge land based Keno fan base online. What was even more in the favor of internet casinos was that many people were used to betting on Keno on video screens, so the move on to the internet was less of a barrier than say with blackjack.

    So here is how you play Keno. You start off by choosing between four and ten numbers from a total of eighty numbers. Each choice is referred to as a "spot". In many online keno games, you can purchase countless tickets for the same draw, and in a handful games you can even pre-buy for games in the future.

    After you have submitted your choices, twenty numbered balls will "enter" into a hopper from a tube. If enough of your spots are picked, you win. That simple. You will obviously come away with more, if more of your numbers are landed on, like with lottos.

    Most internet keno games allow you to buy cards between 5 cents and five dollars, and pay out in multiples of your ticket value. Jackpot fortunes of up to $50,000 are not uncommon.

    Simple? Yes. So there should be a problem? Yes. The casino edge with Keno is thirty percent or greater, the WORST of any online casino game. The expectation of hitting a number is 0.25percent. Keno is by a big margin the awful game you could possibly bet on. If you want a game of chance wager on slot machines.
