• Keno’s History

    Keno was created in two hundred BC by the Chinese army leader, Cheung Leung who utilized this game as a monetary resource for his failing army. The city of Cheung was at war, and after a bit of time appeared to be looking at a national shortage of food with the dramatic decrease in supplies. Cheung Leung needed to develop a rapid fix for the economic adversity and to acquire money for his military. He thusly designed the game we know today as keno and it was a wonderful success.

    Keno used to be referred to as the White Pigeon Game, seeing as the winning numbers were sent out by pigeons from larger cities to the smaller towns. The lotto ‘Keno’ was brought to America in the 19th century by Chinese immigrants who came to the United States for work. In those times, Keno used one hundred and twenty numbers.

    Today, Keno is normally played with 80 numbers in most of the US based casinos as well as internet casinos. Keno is mainly played today as a consequence of the laid back nature of wagering the game and the basic reality that there are little expertise required to enjoy Keno. Despite the reality that the odds of coming away with a win are appalling, there is constantly the possibility that you might win quite large with a tiny gambling investment.

    Keno is enjoyed with eighty numbers and 20 numbers are selected each round. Enthusiasts 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 roll out of matching numbers.

    Keno grew in popularity in the United States near the close of the 19th century when the Chinese characters were changed with , US numbers. Lotteries weren’t covered under the laws of gambling in the state of Nevada in 1931. The casinos renamed the ‘Chinese lotto’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing the idea that the numbers are horses and you are wanting your horses to come in. When the Nevada government passed a law that levied a tax on off track wagering, casinos swiftly changed the name to ‘Keno’.
