Think Carefully Before You Wager on Keno

Keno is a game of pure chance and is very close to Lotto games. The game was brought to the US of A by Chinese expatriates in the nineteenth century. As with lottery games, it is a dead simple to play, and it is enchanting as big fortunes are offered for very small bets. Keno is enjoyed at taverns, clubs and civic center all over the planet today. Unfortunately it shares another weakness with lotto games – horrendous odds.

Understandably, Keno found its way into internet casinos as it was a simple game to create, and online casino operators wanted to capture the huge land based Keno fan base online. What was even more in the favour of casinos on the internet was that many people were accustomed to wagering on Keno on video terminals, so the move online was less of a hurdle than say with twenty-one.

So here is how you enjoy Keno. You start off by choosing between 4 and ten numbers from a total of 80 numbers. Each selection is called a "spot". In many online keno games, you can purchase multiple tickets for the same draw, and in some games you can even pre-buy for games in the future.

Once you have submitted your selection, 20 balls with numbers will "drop" into a hopper from a barrel. If enough of your numbers are selected, you win. That is all there is. You will obviously amass more, if more of your spots come up, like with lottos.

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

Easy? Yes. So there has to be a catch? Absolutely. The gambling casino edge with Keno is 30 percent or higher, the WORST of any online casino game. The odds of hitting a number is 0.25%. Keno is by a long margin the worst game you can possibly gamble on. If you want a game of randomness play slot machines.
