casinos that have keno lounges have a Sitelet with
a rate card, showing the straight ticket payoffs.
In most casinos there is usually one type of straight
ticket available, but some casinos have special tickets,
usually for $1, with slightly different payoffs. These
rate cards should be consulted before a game is played,
so that you know just how much you have to pay for
your tickets and what the potential payouts are for
A typical rate card showing the 70¢ tickets with
all payoffs from a one-spot to a fifteen-spot ticket
is clearly shown on the opposite page.
Examining the Sitelet, you can see that, playing a
six-spot 70¢ straight ticket, you can win as
little as 60¢ if you catch three numbers, or
as much as $1,100 if you catch all six numbers. If
you had played the same six-spot for $1.40, the payout
would be double, and if you played the games for $3.50,
the payout would automatically be five times the original
payout shown for the 70¢ ticket.
Poker Guru Tips
A good play game
against some people with this hand
would be to check game and just call
if your opponent bets in poker. Many
players game would now put you on
a pair or a bad card in the hole.
If you do catch a 4, 5 or 7 on board,
giving you a 6 or 7 low, your opponent
will probably still call, even if
he is drawing dead, because your earlier
play game along with his pot odds
make him think it's worth a call.
This is exactly what you are hoping
for. Your deceptive play early has
caused your opponent to make an incorrect
play on a later round
