Understanding Land Keno Tickets

In online keno there is only one type of ticket and it is simply structured. Players can mark up to 15 numbers on the ticket. The numbers act as one set and play one game at a time. In land based keno games this simple format is available. But there are other complex forms of keno tickets that impart greater excitement to the game. Players who wish to play land keno games should understand how these tickets operate.

The simple ticket is called a straight ticket in land keno parlance. The most common type of other ticket is called a split ticket. This allows a player to bet two or more combinations in a single game. Players mark two or more sets of different numbers and clearly separate them by drawing dividing lines between the sets on circling the different sets. Each set can contain up to 15 numbers. It is important to note that a number cannot appear in more than one set. In order to ensure that there is no confusion certain additional conventions are followed while marking the split ticket. The player indicates the number of groups and the number of spots marked in each group beside the main box. If the player is playing two sets of five numbers each he will write "2/5". Below that the player will indicate the price that he is paying for each set and will indicate the total price for all sets in the box provided.

The next land keno ticket is called a combination ticket. In this ticket the player can formulate different groups as in the split ticket. However, he also plays an additional group that is the sum total of all the groups. If the player has marked two groups of five numbers each, he will also be playing with a third group that contains all the ten numbers marked. The ticket will be marked "2/5 1/10". If the player has paid a price of $1 per group then the total price for the ticket would be $3. In a combination ticket the total spots marked cannot exceed 15.

The next in the progression of land keno tickets is the way ticket. This is best illustrated using an example. The player marks three different sets of five numbers each. Let us call the sets A, B and C. In the way ticket the player will then be betting on 3 groups of 10 spots each. The first group will be made by combining sets A and B, the second group will be made by combining sets A and C and the third group will be made by combining sets B and C. This will be written as "3/10".

The final land keno ticket is called king. In this one single number is marked, which is known as king. Then separate groups of numbers may be marked and circled. The king is added to each group. For example a player may mark 7 as king and also mark 20 and 21 in one set and 70 and 80 in another set. Then he will have bet on 7, 20 and 21 in one set and 7, 70 and 80 in the second set. The code will be "2/3". The king ticket is for players who consider a particular number very lucky and want it in all groups.

There really isn't that much difference actually in the two if you ask me between land based online casino keno and online keno when it comes to this.
