Keno Games

Keno is a lottery style game available in many online casinos. Keno is easy to learn, and easy to play. The game uses a rectangular board divided into 80 numbered squares. When the game begins, 20 balls are drawn at random from a basket containing 80 numbered balls. The number on the ball is matched with the number on the board.

The object of the game is to predict which balls will be drawn from the basket. You can bet on 1 to 15 numbers on the Keno board (how many you bet on is up to you). Once you have marked the board with your choices, the fun begins! The basket begins mixing the balls, and then one by one the balls are drawn out and placed on the board.

A Chinese warlord named Cheung Leung invented the game in 200 B.C. as a way to raise money for a war. The game was extremely popular - so popular, in fact, that enough money was raised to build the Great Wall of China! Indeed, construction of the Great Wall of China was funded entirely by Chinese gamblers.

Chinese immigrants brought the game to the United States in the 1800s. At the time, it was known as Chinese Lottery. Eventually, the Chinese characters were replaced with numbers. In 1931, the state of Nevada "legalized" the game by calling it Horserace Keno. At the time, horse racing was legal, but games of chance were not. In Horserace Keno, each number on the board represented a "horse." People would bet on which horse would win the "race." This was perfectly acceptable under Nevada law! At some point along the way, the name of the game was shortened from "Horserace Keno" to just "Keno."

Below, you will find screenshots for 11 different Keno games. The basic rules of each Keno game remain the same, but each one uses a different brand of software.
