Keno is a simple and easy to play lottery type game that is very popular in casinos and can be found in many video poker spots as well. The name Keno comes from China and means “Chinese lottery”. The Chinese used Keno as a way of fundraising for their army many centuries ago. There is even a pkv game legend that says the Keno-type lottery game was used to raise funds to build The Great Wall of China!
Let’s talk about the rules
Keno is now offered in many online casinos. The rules to Keno are very easy to follow:
* First, you pick any amount of numbers, up to fifteen, from a choice of 80 numbers and mark them off of your Keno card that is on your computer screen.
* After you have chosen your numbers, random numbers are drawn which are the winning numbers.
* If you match all fifteen numbers, you win the jackpot; however if you just get a lesser number of picks right, you will win a smaller prize depending on the number of correct picks you had.
Keno is a major money-maker for casinos as the house advantage is very great in comparison to your winning odds. Being so popular and easy to throw money away on, Keno is much like the lottery.
