The Basics of Playing Keno

Keno has some similarities with lottery in the sense that players will just have to mark some numbers on the keno ticket. If the players get some numbers right, they win. Keno games give players chances to win big money for a small bet made.

This is how keno is played and it applies to both land-based and online casinos everywhere. Players must first obtain one or more keno tickets. Players must mark their selected numbers with big X's, write down the price played, how many rounds you wish to play, and how much numbers you want to bet on the keno ticket.

After writing everything down, you need to pay the amount of the keno ticket and a duplicate keno ticket will be given to you after you have paid. Wait for the result numbers of the keno race you are in. And in case you won, never procrastinate the time. Immediately claim your prize before a new keno race will start that your prize will not be forfeited.

How do you fill up a keno ticket? First of all, you need to obtain a keno ticket in various places inside the casino. If you can't find any, you may ask politely any casino staff. Once you have a keno ticket, mark your number of choice with big X's using the crayons that casinos provide free of charge.

Of the 80 number slots on the keno ticket, you can mark only a single number or many numbers of up to ten in all. After you have marked your selected numbers, write down how many numbers you have chosen and how many rounds of game you want to play with the particular keno ticket. Then in the specified blank box, write down the price of the keno ticket, usually situated on the upper end of the ticket.

Before the keno game starts, bring you filled up keno ticket to the keno writer desk where a duplicate copy of the ticket will be given back to you as your record or receipt with the following details: time and date, code number, and number of the game.

If ever you are far from the place of the keno writer desk, there are keno runners available anytime who can bring your keno ticket with your money to the keno writer and bring back the duplicate copy to you. Keno runners are also casino employees who are always on the move taking keno tickets from guests.

A round of keno game is also called a race and before a keno race begins, the results of the previous race shown on the screen of the keno table. But once the screen turns blank, it means that a new keno race is about to begin.

After the result numbers are all called out and you have won, claim your prize as soon as possible before the next keno race starts or else, the prize will be gone. After every race, check your keno ticket with the Punch Out device, which is a tool that punches holes on the winning numbers on the ticket.

It is best to play keno with more numbers, because the more the numbers, the more the odds will be in your favor.
