Limited Auto Play in Keno at Online CasinosBy: Adam Richards, Tuesday March 2nd 2010

There are two types of online keno players. The first type is the players who like to change the marked pattern on the keno ticket after every game, particularly if they have not been lucky. They like to try out different patterns, whether letters or numbers or shapes, in the hope of striking one that gives them good results. Players of the second type are mathematically minded and realize that the probability of winning is independent of the marked pattern. What ever pattern the player may mark the probability of scoring a number of hits remains unchanged. Such players usually do not like to get involved in the hassle of changing the pattern after each game. On the other hand they think that this exercise is a waste of time and would like to get in as many games as they can. Therefore wagering again and again with the same pattern is ideal for these players.
The second type of online keno player described above would love to have an auto play feature in the keno game. Unfortunately online keno games do not provide an auto play feature of the type that is available in online slots. In online slot games players can activate the auto play feature and play 100, 500 or even more games without any manual involvement. The maximum number of auto play games in online slots is different for different software providers. Therefore the absence of such a feature comes as a disappointment to many online keno players.
However some online gaming software providers have a limited auto play feature in the keno games. They allow players to play once, five times or ten times with the same ticket. Players first mark out the desired pattern on the ticket and set the appropriate bet amount. They then select the appropriate button from Play 1, Play 5 or Play 10. Finally they click the Play button and the software plays out the desired number of games with the same ticket.
The total amount for the selected number of games is not immediately debited to the player’s account. Only the amount for the first game is deducted from the player’s balance. Then the numbers are drawn and hits mark on the ticket. At the end of the game if the player has won any amount the same is added to his balance. The hit marks are cleared on the ticket but not the original marks. The amount for the second game is deducted from the players balance and the game proceeds as before. This procedure is repeated till the desired number of games has been played. Players who want to play more games continuously will have to select Play 10 and follow the above procedure. When10 games have been played the player the player simply has to click the Play button again and 10 more games will be played continuously. This procedure can be repeated indefinitely. It is not as good as the online slot game auto play because the player can not leave the computer unattended but has to keep clicking the Play button as required.
