Back in the day when I still used to gamble at land casinos, I used to head
straight over to my favorite games which usually varied between progressive
jackpot slots and blackjack. Inevitably en route I would pass the Keno games
and always seemed to make a mental note to one day find out what exactly Keno
was and how to play it. Needless to say I never got around to it until I started
playing at online casinos. One day after a particularly lucrative online slots
session, I decided to learn about this game once and for all, and boy am I glad
I did. You see, on the surface of it Keno is very similar to lotto, but in my
opinion way more fun.
The gambling game of Keno was supposedly brought to the United States way
back when by Chinese immigrants who worked on the nation's railroads and mines.
And the reason it has stuck around for so long and is still so popular today is
that it is not only very easy to play, but it is highly entertaining and can
turn your small wagers into mammoth winnings. Plus, Keno boasts enough of a
challenge to keep you coming back for more. It is precisely for these reasons
that most good land and online casinos carry and promote Keno, and why an
increasing number of online gambling fans are discovering and enjoying this
centuries old game.
As I said before, Keno is similar to the lotto in that the objective of the game
is to choose between 2 and 10 numbers on grid numbered from 1 to 80. You also
have the option to choose a coin size to suit your gambling budget. When you hit
the play button, the game will randomly choose 20 spots. If two or more of your
spots correspond with any of those randomly selected by the game, you'll
automatically win the corresponding amount as per the game's paytable. Think of
it, unlike with any regular lottery draw that you can only enjoy once or twice a
week, with Keno you have loads of draws happening each and every minute.
Now obviously the more correct spots you have, the higher your winnings will be.
For instance, say you only pick two spots, 1 correct spot would pay 1:1 while
two correct spots would pay 9:1. If, however, you went to the other extreme and
chose 10 spots, you would only get paid out from 5 to 10 correct spots, but your
potential payouts would skyrocket. So while 4 correct spots will earn you
nothing, 5 correct spots would pay you 5:1, 6 spots 24:1, 7 spots 142:1, 8 spots
1000:1, 9 spots 4,500:1 and 10 correct spots would pay you a whopping 10,000:1.
And that folks is just how easy and potentially lucrative Keno can be.
