Although keno is one of the oldest and simplest games to play, it offers huge opportunities to win big. It is a casual game that can be played if you want a break from slots and table games. According to legend the game originated in ancient China by a warlord who needed to raise funds for his troops. The game was so successful that the funds raised from it were used to build the Great Wall of China. The game was similar to modern keno and was based on a popular poem titled “The Thousand Character Classic” that was written by Zhou Xingsi.
Keno is a game of chance and it does not require a complicated strategy to win. This lottery-type game provides numbers from 1 to 80, arranged in 8 rows of 10 numbers each.
Once you have made sure you have enough funds in your account and selected the bet amount, click a number on the keno board to select it and hit Play. You can select up to fifteen numbers which become highlighted as you pick them. When the numbers are drawn at random and if your numbers are selected, you win – it’s as simple as that.
The payout is based on the percentage of matching numbers regardless of how many you have selected. For example if you select two numbers and match both of them, you stand a higher chance of winning a higher payout than if you picked 15 numbers and matched three of them.
Although the chance of matching all the 15 numbers you have picked does not happen very often, the good news is there’s still a chance you could walk away with $10,000 in keno winnings!
