Learn how to win at keno!

The payouts for keno are based on how many numbers the player chooses and how many numbers "hit", multiplied by the player's original wager. The more numbers a player chooses, and the more numbers hit, the greater the payout. Payouts vary widely from casino to casino. Some casinos allow the player to pick up to 20 numbers, but most limit the choice to only 15 or 10. The probability of a player hitting the "jackpot" 20 numbers from 20 chosen is approximately 1 in 3.5 quintillion (1 in 3,535,316,142,212,180,000 to the exact). If every person who ever inhabited planet Earth played one keno game every single second of their lives, there would be about one jackpot-winning ticket to date. If all these possible keno tickets were laid end to end, they would span the Milky Way galaxy -- and only one of them would be a winner.



Every Keno Player has their own strategies that they use to win cash at the casinos, both Online Casinos and Las Vegas Casinos. However, your loss at the casino while gambling is not determined solely by the casino advantage.  There are many variables that can help you beat the house, including the size of your wagers, the number of your wagers, how well you know the game and of course how well you utilize your knowledge of the game.

Make sure when you apply a player strategy that you understand all the variables as it only takes one small error to have you playing a game of luck.
