How to Play

Keno is a mixture between lotto and bingo. It consists of 80 balls being mixed around in a bubble enclosure and pushed out by air (rabbit ear blower as its known) through a tube one at a time like bingo. Of course the online version is a little different where by the numbers are drawn at radom selected by the computer. In all 20 balls are selected.

Before any balls are drawn players are given game cards with numbers 1 to 80. 1 to 15 of these numbers (depending on the casino) must be crossed off and chosen in order to play the game. the object of the game is to match up as many numbers picked with the 20 Keno balls drawn. When a number matches a ball this is known as a “hit”.

Games costs vary from $1, $3 and $5 but it is possible to play mutiple games. Payouts are calculated according to how many correct numbers picked match the corresponding balls
