Online Keno Guide Overview

Keno is of Chinese origin and of great antiquity, dating back at least 2,000 years. The original Chinese name for the game is baige piao or pai-ko p’iao, meaning “white pigeon ticket,” a reference to the tickets used in a betting game involving homing pigeons.

Keno arrived in the western United States in the 1840s with Chinese immigrants. In 1933 keno was introduced in gambling houses in Reno, Nevada, under the name Race-Horse Keno, with names of horses instead of numbers on the tickets so as not to conflict with state laws concerning lotteries. Today keno is played (with many daily drawings) in nearly all American casinos as well as in many casinos in Australia, South Africa, South America, and East Asia. The house advantage in casino keno is considerable—about 25 percent.

A player marks or circles as many of these numbers as he wishes up to the permitted maximum, after which he hands in, or registers, his ticket and pays according to how many numbers he selected. At regular daily intervals, a total of 20 numbered balls or pellets are randomly drawn from a container, and prizes are paid out by the house according to how many of each player’s selected numbers are drawn.

Payouts explained

When all twenty numbers have been rolled out, you will be paid according to the paytable
