Keno is believed to originate from China and historians claim it funded the Great Wall of China. Modern Keno games, however, date to the 19th century and in 1847 the game was played in Macau with 80 Chinese characters. The Americans made it their own when Chinese immigrants came into the US and started calling it Keno.
A lottery draw is popular across the world and while online casinos cannot give players millions of dollars that state and national lotteries can give, they give the next best game, keno. Online keno gives players the chance to choose spots (numbers) in the hope that they are chosen in the next draw. Typically, you will have a selection of 1 to 15 choices, each with different prizes. When the drawing takes place, twenty numbers are picked, ranging from 1 to 80.
The results come down to comparing how many drawn numbers match those of the player’s selection. Very much like a lottery draw, the numbers must be matched, and the prize depends on the type of ticket chose. For example, if you picked one number, your winnings will be 3-1 odds and if you picked ten numbers and have five correct, you will also win. The more you hit, the bigger the reward and keep in mind that online keno has different odds and options at different online casinos.
