Keno is basically a glorified lottery game, which has taken the world by storm over the past several years. Keno is played just about everywhere, including casinos
, bars, bingo rooms, and more. The game generates billions of dollars in wagers every year, and offers up several variations to players to entice players to keep playing without becoming bored.
With that being said, here are the following rules for standard Keno that you will find online at most casinos.
Standard Keno in a casino is played with a field of 80 numbers on a scorecard, with players able to place a wager on anywhere from between 1 and 10 numbers (with different payouts for different bets). Some casinos allow punters to select up to 20 numbers on a ticket, which would offer up even larger prizes. The odds of hitting all 20 numbers in Keno is 1:3.5 quintillion, with the odds of hitting 10 numbers being lower but still pretty dismal.
After selecting your bet, the casino will initiate the draw, in which they draw the specific set of numbers for the game. These numbers are drawn at random through a lottery style system.
Players will then be awarded cash prizes depending on the amount of numbers they opted to play on their ticket, how much they wagered per game, and if their numbers ended up being selected in the game. The more numbers that end up matching your ticket, the more you will end up winning from the casino or lottery service that holds the games.
