Nov 152019

Keno was introduced in two hundred BC by the Chinese military leader, Cheung Leung who used this game as a finance resource for his failing army. The metropolis of Cheung was waging a battle, and after a bit of time seemed to be looking at a country wide famine with the drastic decrease in supplies. Cheung Leung needed to create a rapid fix for the economic disaster and to acquire revenue for his forces. He thusly developed the game we know today as keno and it was a wonderful success.

Keno used to be known as the White Pigeon Game, because the winning numbers were delivered by pigeons from bigger cities to the lesser villages. The lottery ‘Keno’ was imported to the US in the 19th century by Chinese newcomers who headed to the States to work. In those times, Keno was played with one hundred and twenty numbers.

Today, Keno is regularly enjoyed with just 80 numbers in just about all of the US based casinos along with internet casinos. Keno is largely enjoyed today as a result of the laid back nature of wagering the game and the simple fact that there are little skills required to enjoy Keno. Despite the fact that the odds of coming away with a win are terrible, there is always the possibility that you might hit quite big with little gaming investment.

Keno is enjoyed with 80 numbers with 20 numbers selected each game. Gamblers of Keno can select from two to ten numbers and bet on them, whatever amount they want to. The pay out of Keno is dependent on the bets made and the matching of numbers.

Keno grew in acceptance in the United States near the end of the 1800’s when the Chinese characters were replaced with , US numbers. Lotteries weren’t covered under the legalization of gambling in the state of Nevada in Nineteen Thirty One. The casinos altered the name of the ‘Chinese lottery’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing the concept that the numbers are horses and you want your horses to place. When the Nevada government passed a law that taxed off track betting, the casinos swiftly adjusted the name to ‘Keno’.
