Keno’s like that one friend we all have - the one without a a bad bone in their body. Easygoing, generous and zero fallout, what’s not to love about one of the most popular online lottery games. Players enjoy the instantaneity, being able to find out if they’ve won, and the fact that they can play on demand. So how do you play keno and what’s it all about? Read on to:
Keno offers progressive jackpots so when you win, you can win BIG!
The premise is simple. Make your claim on your lucky numbers then hope they match your ticket when the ballot is drawn. Before you begin, set yourself a gambling limit and check the payout chart. When you’re ready to play, start out with the betting minimum and raise the stakes as you progress, making sure not to bet on too many numbers or you’ll lower your payout.
Of all the online gambling games to indulge in, keno is the most mindless of them all. It’s simply a game of luck. Anyway, let’s look at the types of bets.
During the Chinese dynasty of Han over 3000 years ago, Emperor Cheung Leung had exhausted all political means to get money from his people and introduced a lottery, now known as “keno”. It soon spread across the country via white pigeon.
It proved a lucrative endeavour, and rumour has it that when the construction of the Great Wall of China was in need, the profits from the timeless game were called upon.
In the 19th century when Chinese workers set sail to the US, they took with them this lottery game. It thrived despite the ban on lotteries. Disguised as a horse race betting system, it continued to attract gamblers until its legalisation in the 20th century.
