Keno Rules

Keno is similar to bingo and the lottery. Most believe the roots to Keno started in China around 200 BC, but that is not substantiated with full documentation. There have been several other thoughts on the origins. The game was first introduced into the US in the 19th century by the Chinese. The Chinese came to work on the railroads and mines of the US to make more money for their families. The Keno game offers great winnings for a smaller wager compared to other games.

Keno is played in the lounge of Casinos around North America. You can also play the game when you dine or while sitting at a slot machine. There are Keno Runners or casino employees that take your ticket and wager to see if you will win on the spin. You can just sit and relax and the runners bring you the ticket and winnings. You can also go collect the winnings if you would like to. The TV's in the lounges or other areas will display the winning numbers for you to compare with your ticket.

Keno can also be found online as a video. It is much like the slot machines in which you get to spin the wheel to get a faster payout on the game then waiting around for the television show. In Keno you need to select between 4 and 10 numbers. The numbers are between 1 and 80. You can also play multiple tickets with multiple wagers for a better chance at winning the game.

All you have to do when you play Keno is take a ticket that is at the table or in the lounge area. You will mark the numbers you want on the ticket according to the wager you want to place. Then you offer the ticket to a runner or other personnel at the casino. They will wait until the next round of balls are dropped and see if you have a winning ticket. If you are a winner you get the payout according to the odds.

Most video Keno will allow for a five cent bet, but in a land casino you must wager a dollar per ticket. The casino will have a specific payout table as they are not all the same.

The type of ticket is also going to determine the payout you will earn. You may get $50,000 in winnings for a dollar bet depending on the ticket and whether the game is progressive or not.

The house edge is usually going to vary, but it is around 30 percent. The chance of getting one number to win on the ticket is .25 percent, so very low.
