Keno is a lottery style casino game where you can win a
very large amount in proportion to the amount you bet. Of course
with any game that offers such big winning the odds are not great and the house edge is quite high. Still many people enjoy playing lottery style games so casino keno is a popular game.
Casino keno boards have a total of 80 numbers of which you can pick
a maximum of 15 and a minimum of 1. You win based on the amount of numbers you correctly guess with the biggest wins for matching between 10 and 15 numbers.
How To Play Keno
Playing keno is a very simple matter. All you need to do is select
some numbers and wait for the numbers to be drawn. At land based casinos there is often a keno area where you will find tickets to fill in. You mark your numbers on the ticket and then take it to the Keno desk where you pay for the ticket.
Online you will find that most casinos have at least one keno game
which is really video keno. It's played the same
way as casino keno except you use a video terminal rather than tickets. You select numbers by clicking them on the screen and can start the draw at any time by clicking play.
