Keno online involves all of the fun and anticipation of a hard-copy keno game but with the added convenience of being available online 24/7. Keno involves no gaming or betting skill so you don’t have to practice.
Just spin the keno ball and wait to see which numbers come up! If the number that you chose is on the list, you collect an immediate payout!
Keno originated in China where it evolved into a government-sponsored lottery under the Han Dynasty which was trying to raise money for its wars. The game involved participants paying an entry fee in order to be able to select the numbers that they predicted would come up in a draw.
To allow the game to be played simultaneously by as wide a population as possible, the government devised a system by which the results of the draws would be disseminated by white carrier pigeons that would be sent to the various towns and villages in which people were playing.
In China, the “Great White Pigeon Game” involved 80 Chinese characters that corresponded to characters on small balls that were placed inside a large ball. Lottery players would choose up to 20 characters and bet on the numbers that they had chosen.
When the lottery took place, 20 characters would be chosen and payouts would be distributed based on the numbers of correct characters that each lottery player chose.
Today, numbers have replaced Chinese characters but otherwise, the game remains similar to the lottery played thousands of years ago in China. Every number that you choose will pay out if it’s one of the numbers picked by the lottery.
To play keno online, you sign into your online casino account and navigate to the “Specialty Games” area where you’ll find keno. Click on “Keno” and select the number of keno games that you want to play.
Make your bets for each draw – it’s suggested that you start slowly but work towards playing the maximum number of games possible in order to if you’re aiming to achieve the highest payouts.
Fill out the Keno card. You’ll see numbers listed from one to eighty and you’ll be prompted to check off the number of “spots”, up to 20, that you plan to play. You wager on each spot. When the draw takes place, the numbers will be announced and you’ll see how many of your 20 “spots” match the picks – that determines your payout prize!
Keno is purely a game of chance with the results determined by your random predictions of which numbers will come up in the draw.
Some casino observers, however, offer tips to keno players that, they say, will increase their chances of success. They include the suggestion to play consecutive numbers, play specific numbers consistently game after game and selecting numbers that haven’t come up in awhile.
The one tip that is a sure bet in helping you achieve higher payouts involves the casino bonuses.
