It won’t usually be looked at as the sexiest game in the realm of gaming, but keno has millions and millions of devoted enthusiasts. And it should! It’s a consistently thrilling lottery-ish game that’s simple to pickup, abundantly available in a number of different formats, and one that can yield millions of dollars for gamblers who master its limitless subtle intricacies. But let’s deal with the basic rules for now.

When defining keno to amateurs, some betting connoisseurs compare it to lotto. This is at least to a certain extent correct, in that both games are generally numerical. Yet to carry that comparison too far can be to minimize the countless unique traits that make keno so exciting. Unlike bingo, keno gamblers have the power to select the numbers for each card.

Keno cards have a grand total of 80 numbers, but the user is furnished with an additional level of personal responsibility by being able to select as numerous (or as few) numbers as she desires. And it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to come up with how to fill out a card: all you do is circle or otherwise mark all your picked numbers with a standardpen like you used back in school.

Once you’ve checked your numbers, carry your card back to the keno pit manager at the keno booth. The girl will record those numbers and then give you a receipt. Do not drop this (potentially) valuable piece of paper! Even if the keno pit manager remembers your mug and would like to help out, without a winning slip with you, you will collect precisely $.00 for your actions.

So, there you have strategy numero uno: always make sure to keep your keno slip. Let us move on to something a tiny bit more complicated, what do you think?

Once you’ve marked your numbers, get yourself into a comfy keno booth and observe the action unfold on a big video monitor. This is where the winning numbers show up in lights. If you have winning numbers, mark your card aptly. Sake care not to drag your feet, or sit there congratulating yourself for an obnoxious length of time. You must get up to the keno booth to redeem your winnings, and a new drawing will likely begin within 5 minutes.

Strategy #2: always get back to the keno booth on time!

Assuming you do not trust yourself to beat that 5 minute margin every time, you always have the option of purchasing a "multi-race" card. These include the very same set of your picked numbers on anywhere from two to 20 tickets. When the max amount of keno games (fitting the amount of tickets) is played, you may then get off your numb bum and go retrieve your winnings.

Yet an additional choice is known as a "stray and play" keno card, which generally lets you make number choices for thirty keno rounds or more. Hell, you can take all the time in the world and not have to fret about getting back in time to get your winnings. Most "stray and play" tickets are good for up to a whole year after you purchase it!

So now you are aware of a handful of required schemes for winning keno. If you are an adept gambler, they might seem stupidly obvious. Still, it doesn’t hurt to study up on the fundamentals, and if you are a novice player, every bit of information will help make your keno games more fun.
