How to Play Online Keno
There are 80 numbers offered on a typical keno ticket. Players can choose from 1 to 10 spots, though many casinos offer the option to choose more. If your spot is picked, the payouts change depending on how many spots you have chosen, and how many of your spots were picked. These rules change from casino to casino, and when playing online, you can see the payout change in real-time based on how many spots you have chosen.
Choose a Wager
While many keno players stick to lower wagers for a higher number of spots and races, others might up the bet (and the adrenaline) and choose a fewer number of spots and races. The wager is per the number of races. For example, if a player wagers $1 and chooses 10 spots on only one card (race), the player is wagering $1 in the end. The important thing is to analyze your bankroll and decide how much you can realistically afford to wager.
Choose a Number of Races
When playing online keno at Slots of Vegas, players have the option of choosing how many races they would like to wager on. You can choose to keep the same spots for multiple races and wager on 5 or even 10 races in a row. Remember that if you wager $5 on a race, it will count for all the races you are playing at that time.
Payouts are different for every online casino (and land-based) and depend on a number of different factors. A casino’s pay table is determined by the number of spots a player selects and how many spots the player catches. This is multiplied by the ratio of the player’s original bet to determine the base rate of the pay table. If it sounds complicated, don’t worry. All you need to know is that the payout differs depending on how many spots you select, how many spots you catch, and how much you chose to wager at the start of the game. Generally speaking, the more spots you chose to pick, and the more spots you win, the payout will be higher.
How to Play Online Keno

A Brief History of Keno
Keno is known to have popped up in Las Vegas casinos in the 1930s, but it actually is dated back as far as 2,000 years ago! While the name “keno” has Latin or French roots, the game originated in China where its invention saved a city during a time of war, and it was also used to help build the Great Wall of China.
In 1847, when the Portuguese government of Macau began granting licenses to lottery operators, the results of the keno games in big cities were delivered to villages by way of carrier pigeons — the Chinese name for keno is “báigē piào,” which translate to “white dove ticket.”
It was brought to the United States by Chinese immigrants in the 19th century, and it had become a widely popular game in Texas under the new name, Keno. It was first introduced to casinos in the 1930s where a casino in Reno, Nevada was the first to host this ancient game.
