Keno was introduced in 200 before Christ by the Chinese army leader, Cheung Leung who utilized keno as a monetary resource for his declining army. The city of Cheung was waging a war, and after some time appeared to be facing country wide shortage of food with the dramatic drop in supplies. Cheung Leung needed to develop a fast fix for the financial adversity and to produce income for his military. He therefore developed the game we now know as keno and it was a great success.

Keno used to be referred to as the White Pigeon Game, due to the fact that the winning numbers were delivered by pigeons from larger cities to the smaller villages. The lotto ‘Keno’ was brought to the US in the 1800s by Chinese newcomers who came to the United States to jobs. In those times, Keno was played with 120 numbers.

Today, Keno is generally wagered on with eighty numbers in most of the US based casinos as well as web casinos. Keno is largely liked today because of the relaxed nature of gambling the game and the basic reality that there are little skills needed to enjoy Keno. Regardless of the reality that the chances of winning are appalling, there is always the chance that you will win quite large with very little gambling investment.

Keno is played with 80 numbers with twenty numbers drawn each game. Players of Keno can choose from 2 to ten numbers and gamble on them, whatever amount they are able to. The pay out of Keno is dependent on the wagers made and the matching of numbers.

Keno grew in universal appeal in the United States near the close of the 19th century when the Chinese letters were replaced with more familiar, US numbers. Lotteries weren’t covered under the legalization of gaming in Nevada State in 1931. The casinos adjusted the name of the ‘Chinese lottery’ to ‘horse race keno’ employing the notion that the numbers are horses and you want your horses to place. When the Nevada government passed a law that levied a tax on off track betting, casinos swiftly adjusted the name to ‘Keno’.
