## Keno Probability

By: CasinoAdvisor.com, Wednesday June 11th 2008

Keno is a lottery game in which you get to choose what numbers you want to play. You have several possible outcomes to getting some of the numbers and not getting any at all. The house edge on keno is very high, which means it is a game where you don't want to risk a lot for the play. Keno is also random; there is no way to predict the outcome of the numbers. The only thing you can control is what numbers you play and how many numbers you play. In our probability article we are going to look at a table. This table will show you ten online casinos that offer you higher returns for video keno. When you play live Keno you don't have as much of a chance at winning.

The probabilities are based on mathematical analysis of the machines and the possible number combinations you can play.

 Pick Table 1 Table 2 Table 3 Table 4 Table 5 Table 6 Table 7 Table 8 1 75% 75% 75% 75% 75% 75% 2 72.15% 90.19% 84.18% 90.19% 84.18% 90.19% 90.19% 90.19% 3 72.15% 94.35% 86.03% 91.58% 83.25% 87.41% 91.58% 92.96% 4 72.87% 94.78% 86.14% 92.03% 86.14% 87.74% 92.03% 92.77% 5 71.93% 94.95% 85.96% 91.93% 85.31% 88.06% 91.93% 93.33% 6 70.73% 94.99% 85.88% 92.67% 85.21% 88.02% 92.67% 92.66% 7 69.73% 94.92% 86.04% 92.44% 85.31% 87.68% 92.44% 92.64% 8 70.04% 94.9% 86.17% 92.31% 84.17% 88.2% 92.31% 92.62% 9 70.8% 93.6% 85.8% 92.39% 84.87% 87.57% 92% 92.66% 10 70.33% 93.2% 85.81% 92.75% 86.72% 88.8% 92.55% 92.69%

As you can see your probability is at its highest when you go for one number, however that doesn't mean you should pick just one number out of 80. The possibility of getting that one number is very remote, even though the payout is higher. In fact the table shows you the probability of not winning when you play one number.

In Keno you need to pick more numbers to have a better chance of winning. If you are playing video Keno the machine is going to draw the amount of numbers you are wagering on out of 80. The more numbers it has to draw the more chance you have to win some or all of the bet.

Keno can be a fun little game to try out if you are waiting for your favorite slot to open up in a casino, while eating your dinner, or just to have a little fun that is something different.

Knowing the probabilities can help you devise your strategy, but the game is always going to be random. This means you are going to lose more often than you win even when you lower the house edge by playing more numbers. You can also play more tickets on the same draw in the hopes that ten out of all the tickets will be the winners. There are an infinite number of possible outcomes for even multiple tickets, but check out those probabilities as well when you play Keno.
