What is Keno?

Keno is one of the most popular games of chance and lottery. It depends entirely on luck and your knowledge of the rules.

Keno as a game of chance

When you play Keno in a casino, a board with numbers from 1 to 80 will be displayed. You must choose the numbers you hope will be chosen later in the draw. In some games you can choose from 1 to 10 numbers, in others you can choose even more, usually between 15 and 20 numbers. It is also important to be aware that the payout and range of bet amounts differ from platform to platform.

After marking the numbers you have chosen, the winning numbers will be drawn 100% randomly by a random number generator that does not follow any kind of pattern. There is therefore no way to predict them. This is why most people usually choose their lucky numbers or just random numbers. When the results are generated and displayed, you can see how much you have won, which depends on the number of numbers you got and the amount you bet.

Keno as a lottery game

Keno can also be played as a lottery game and this variant is usually called Keno lotto. Like most lottery games, to participate you must buy a Keno lotto ticket, on which you will find boxes with the numbers 1 to 80, and sometimes 1 to 70. You can choose between 1 and 20 numbers and wait for the results.

In the Keno draw, a random number generator is used to draw the winning numbers and by comparing them to the ones you have chosen and marked on your ticket, you can determine how much you have won. The payout depends on the number of numbers you chose, the number of your numbers that match the winning numbers and the amount you bet per game.

What is the history of Keno?

Keno is an ancient game that originated in China over 2000 years ago. Many changes have been introduced into the game since then, starting with its name which was beige piao or pai-ko p'iao when it was first created, and it is still known by that name in China to this day. Its current name is of French origin, due to the fact that gambling attracted a lot of foreign attention thanks to the Chinese who immigrated to the United States in the first half of the 19th century. Originally, Keno was played using cards with different characters based on classical Chinese literature. Over time, the game evolved and the characters were replaced by numbers.

Now you can find Keno in many casinos around the world and is offered by many lottery companies and recently it has become possible to play online.
