Play All Jackpots’ Thrilling Online Keno
Keno is a casino game of chance that has a very similar premise to many lottery games. However, unlike lotto, online Keno is far more flexible, offers a greater range of bet limits, and can be played at a moment’s notice. Essentially, the more of your selected numbers that match those revealed in the Keno draw, the more you stand to win in this casual but popular favourite.
Keno is one of the oldest lottery-style games around, having originated over 2000 years ago in ancient China. It is rumoured that it was created to help finance the building of the Great Wall of China, and the original game had over 120 characters. It was dubbed Chinese Lottery when it first spread to other regions, and around 160 years ago its characters were switched to only 80 numbers on a card.
It was then that the game was strategically renamed to Horse Race Keno, which was shortened to Keno once gambling was liberated later in the 20th century. By the 1990’s, Keno had made its way online, reaching a wide new audience and becoming the classic online Keno variation that we know and love today.
The Basics of Playing Online
Playing Keno online is a cinch, especially since developers have strived to make it easier than ever for Kiwis to play online. To begin, you will place your wager and select between 1 and 15 numbers out of the 80 digits on your virtual Keno board. The numbers you play – and how many of them you play – is essential to the game’s strategy, and a payout table will always be there to provide more information here at All Jackpots Casino.
From there, 20 numbered balls will appear onto the screen, revealing the winning numbers for your game. Every one of your numbers that matches the winning ones will be paid out, and naturally, the more numbers you match, the bigger your payout will be. Typically, the highest jackpot you can win in Keno is 10,000 times your stake, if you chose to select 15 numbers and each one matches the winning numbers in your game’s draw.
