If you want to gamble without being too risky, keno is the right game for you. Easy to learn and play, with no strategy or reasoning involved. It is available in many restaurants, bars and casinos and is now online. If your number is chosen, you win 카지노 - it's simple! With elements of bingo, poker, and roulette, this game can be quite contagious.

1. Get a keno card

2. Pick numbers and mark them on your keno card or pick them up with a keno worker.

3. Specify the amount of money you want to put in your selected numbers and how many keno games you want to play.

4. Give your keno card to a keno worker who will take your bet on the next game.

5. Watch the keno machine randomly select 20 balls (or watch the screen).

6. Call the keno worker to declare your winnings

The basic principle of keno is the same whether you are playing at an online casino or at a land based one. Get a Keno card or ticket first. Each Keno ticket has 80 numbers on it. Players choose up to 15 or 20 numbers (this varies in each casino) on your card. You register your selected numbers with the teller and wait to see which numbers appear on the board. The more numbers on the board match the ones you choose on your card, the more you win.

You can bet on a straight ticket, a King ticket or a combination ticket when you play Keno. A straight ticket is the simplest with numbers marked as a single bet. The King ticket has a round number that is used in all combinations to be bet. With a ticket combination, players can bet on multiple number groupings and combinations of both. It becomes easy to understand as one is only playing a few games of Keno in most games.

Origin of the Game

Keno has been everywhere in Nevada casinos since the 1930’s but its history is much longer than that. The concept behind the game is not exactly ‘rocket science’ and has been replicated in lotteries, raffles, pull tabs and other mutations. For that reason, the linear history of the game is unclear nor is the origin of the name ‘keno’. In fact, much of what is accepted as the history of keno – or more appropriately, the game we now recognize as keno – is a mish mash of history, speculation, superstition, tradition, etc.

Keno is of Chinese origin and has a great ancient time, dating back at least 2,000 years. The original Chinese name for the game was baige piao or pai-ko p'iao, meaning "white pigeon ticket," a reference to tickets used in a betting game involving homing pigeons. Since the 3rd century BCE, baige piao games have existed in most Chinese provinces, usually run by one or more casinos with the permission of the provincial governor, who in turn received a portion of the we.

The original ticket used in baige piao, and still in widespread use in Chinese communities where the game continues to be popular, featured the first 80 characters in Qianziwen (“Book of a Thousand Characters”) instead of numbers. This classic in Chinese literature, by an unknown author, contains exactly 1,000 Chinese ideograms (or characters), all different, and is so well known among educated Chinese that these characters are sometimes used in place of the corresponding numbers from 1 to 1,000.
