1. The casino
is not responsible if a Keno runner is unable to
place your bet before the next games begins. If the
time for the next games is limited, you should place
your bet with a Keno writer in the lounge or at
one of several stations available in most casinos.
2. If there is an error on your copy of the Keno
ticket-if it differs from your blank, and what you
intended to bet-the ticket may be declared void.
Be sure to correct any errors prior to the start
of a game.
3. You may be required to present a Social Security
number or card if you are a big winner. The federal
government wants a share of your profits (but doesn't
often care about your losses!) so be sure that you
have the proper identification available. It's also
wise to save all losing tickets, and records of
other losses and expenses, if you should be fortunate
enough to win a big payoff at this or any other
4. It's not necessary to rewrite a ticket if you
wish to make the same wager on the next games. The
runner or writer can duplicate your choices by using
your previous ticket.
5. The last-and most important-rule of Keno is that
a single winning ticket must be redeemed prior to
the start of the next games. If not, the ticket is
invalid! If you're not playing in the Keno lounge,
ask the runner where the nearest writer is located,
in case he or she can't get back to you prior to
the start of the next games.
