Keno is a popular lottery game that originated in China over 2,000 years ago. Today, it is played in many countries around the world, including the United States, Canada, and Australia.
How to Play Keno
Playing keno is simple. To start, you need to choose between 1 and 20 numbers from a pool of numbers typically ranging from 1 to 80. The more numbers you choose, the higher your potential payout, but also the lower your odds of winning.
Once you've chosen your numbers, you submit your ticket and wait for the next keno drawing. In the drawing, 20 numbers are randomly selected from the pool of 80 numbers. The more of your chosen numbers that match the drawn numbers, the more you win.
While keno is a game of chance and there is no guaranteed strategy for winning, there are some tips that may help increase your odds of winning. These include:
- Choosing consecutive numbers
- Mixing up even and odd numbers
- Playing the same numbers consistently
- Playing fewer numbers for a higher potential payout
About the Game: In Keno you can choose from 3 to 10 numbers from 80. Different prizes can be won depending on the amount of selections you make. If you choose 10 numbers (a "Spot 10" entry) you have a chance to win the JACKPOT!
For Keno, 20 numbers are randomly drawn from a machine containing 80 balls numbered from 1 to 80 inclusive.
You choose between 3 and 10 numbers from this range. If you choose 3 numbers, it is called a 'Spot 3'; if you choose 7 numbers it is a 'Spot 7' and so on.Games to choose from:
A standard game refers to each standard line of numbers you select for a lotto game. Each standard game you play offers you a chance of winning one prize.
A syndicate (or group play) allows you to buy a bigger Lotto ticket by sharing the cost between the members of a group. Having a bigger Lotto ticket increases your chance of winning. If the syndicate ticket wins a prize, the total winnings will be divided equally among all of the members of the group.
A reduced system (or wheeling system) also allows you to select more or less than the standard amount of numbers. And similarly to a full system, it offers you an increased chance of winning a prize with your chosen numbers. Although the reduced system does not cover all possible combinations of your numbers like the full system, it still offers you the same statistical chance of winning a prize, at a significantly reduced cost.
Keno is a fun and exciting lottery game that offers the chance to win big payouts with relatively small bets. While there are no surefire strategies for winning, with a little luck and some of the tips mentioned above, you could be the next big keno winner!
