The Thrill of a Good Game of Keno

May 31, 2009


Keno is a game of chance that has a rich and illustrious history. The keno game that we are currently familiar with has undergone remarkable changes since its original inception. Gambling historians have traced its roots as far back as 200 B.C. to a Chinese form called ‘The game of the White Dove.’ It is well-documented that a form of keno was played in a bingo-like format on the eastern seaboard right around the time of the massive Chinese immigration during the gold rush. Have you tried online keno? Playing at an online casino the is a lot nicer experience than going to the casino these days.

In its contemporary form, keno is something like bingo in that both keno games are based on numbers. Just as with online keno, an individual keno card comes with 80 numbers and the player can pick as many as he or she wants. This is done by circling or otherwise marking them with a pencil or pen. Once the player has picked the numbers, he / she must bring the card back to the clerk at the keno booth. The clerk will then issue a receipt after recording the player’s numbers. It’s up to the player to redeem any winning ticket before the next round begins, so stragglers need to stay alert. Slightly different though when playing at an online casino given that you are playing on your computer.

When the maximum number of keno games (matching the number of tickets) is finished, the player can redeem any winnings and avoid the peril of a void ticket. Another option is the ‘stray and play’ ticket, which usually documents 30 or more keno games. Unlike standard keno tickets, the “stray and play” doesn’t have to be redeemed immediately and is often good for up to a year after purchase. Note, all this is for offline keno. The online keno game is a bit different.
