How to Play Keno


To play the games, you first obtain a keno blank and mark the number or numbers you've selected. These keno blanks are available in the keno lounges and can also be found on tables in the casinos, restaurants, and lounges.

A keno blank contains eighty numbers in consecutive order from 1 to 80, with ten numbers on each line. You can mark from one to fifteen numbers on each blank when playing a straight ticket. A one-number mark is known as a one-spot, a two-number selection is called a two-spot, and so on up to fifteen. On other kinds of tickets more numbers may be selected, but payoffs are never made for more than fifteen spots.

These payoffs are based on three factors: first, the number of spots you select; second, the number of actual spots you catch; and finally, the price you pay for the ticket. In most casinos the minimum ticket is a 70¢ one, though on the Strip this price may increase to $1.40, while-in smaller casinos and those catering to lower-limit keno players, the ticket price may be as low as 35¢.

After you have selected the number of spots you wish to play, you then write in the price of the ticket in the right-hand margin of the keno blank. When tickets are 70¢, you can bet the minimum or multiples of that price. For example, a ticket may be marked for 70¢, $1.40, $2.10, $2.80, and so on, at the discretion of the player.

Online Poker Guru Tips
You have the best of it when you have a positive expectation, and you have a positive expectation when the odds are in your favor. You have the worst of it when you have a negative expectation game, and you have a negative expectation when the odds are against you. Serious gamblers bet only when they have the best of it; when they have the worst of it, they pass.
What does it mean to have the odds in your favor game? It means winning more on a result than the true odds warrant. The true odds of a coin's coming up heads are 1-to-1, but you're getting 2-to-1 for your money. The odds in this instance are in your favor. You have the best of it with a positive expectation of 50 cents per bet.
