A Look into Online Keno

Keno Rules

The rules to Keno are relatively straightforward. In fact, this is one of the easiest of all online casino games to learn how to play. Keno is actually an ancient Chinese game which is often labelled as a numbers game or as a lottery type game. The simple rules could be why this game proves to be so popular around the world. Once you have launched this game, you will be presented with a grid of numbers. Depending on which version you are playing means that the grid could contain up to 100 numbers, but most versions have grids that contain just 80 individual numbers.

The aim is to select between 2 and 10 numbers from this grid. To make your selection, you can either select auto pick (as well as how many numbers you would like the system to automatically choose for you), or you can manually select the numbers simply by clicking on them. To deselect a number, all you have to do is click on the one that you don’t want selected anymore and it will become un-highlighted from your selection. As you select your numbers, the payouts will change accordingly, which is based on how many numbers you have picked. If you are not happy with any of the numbers you have picked, you can generally press the ‘clear’ button or the ‘undo all’ button to erase your entire selection.

You can also then choose whether you would like to play just one game, or you can play for example up to as many as five games with those same numbers. This feature is very similar to the Autoplay button on a slot machine. There are very few other player controls to worry about when playing online keno. All you need to do now is click the ‘play’ button and the numbers will then be randomly drawn for you.

Keno Strategy

Unfortunately there is no proven strategy that can help you win at Keno. This is a completely random game which basically just involves being lucky. It very unlikely that if you select ten balls that you all of those ten balls will be drawn. It might happen, but it certainly won’t happen with every game you play. Matching just two or three balls is much more of a common occurrence. Therefore, it would probably be better to raise your stake and play with fewer numbers, rather than playing with too many numbers selected per game. In other words, don’t waste money betting large while hoping for unrealistic outcomes.

If you pay attention to the numbers that are being drawn, you may notice a few ‘hot’ balls. If some of your numbers aren’t being drawn, perhaps you could swap a few of those ‘cold’ numbers for ‘hot’ ones, although the game is still just as random and this doesn’t mean to say that those new numbers are guaranteed to appear. If you feel as though you are on a bad streak, perhaps close the game and try again at a later date. This is one of those games where you just have to hope that lady luck is on your side.
