The Keno game is considered to be one of the oldest games that is around besides Backgammon and going. Keno has been around since the Han Dynasty period nearly 3000 years ago. It became popular in the United States because of the Chinese immigrants who introduced the game in the twentieth century. But initially, when Chinese immigrants brought play to the United States, gambling generally frowned up above as it was not considered a cultivated activity.
To achieve some profits from some Americans interested in gambling or even sharing something from the back seat, the pioneers who had brought the game to the United States decided to change Chinese characters into Keno and replaced them with numbers instead. This further opened the game to non-Chinese players and the popularity of games spread like wild fire.
The modern version of Keno is very similar to bingo and lottery mainly because of the numbers. However unlike Bingo, the Keno player is the one who chooses the number he wants to put on his Keno ticket. The average Keno card shows around 80 numbers. The player then selects as many numbers as he wishes. They do this surrounding the number with an indicator. After the numbers have been chosen, the player goes back to the booth for the receipt of the transaction or the players can pass their card to a Keno runner who will take the bet. The player then must simply watch the wide screen or just wait and video numbers to show up.
While the numbers pop out on the screen, all a Keno player must do must mark the number with their marker. The player’s prize is usually determined how many numbers match the players keno card to those numbers that revealed on the screen.
The player will have to take back his keno winning card to the cabin because another draw will happen around five minutes after the first one. The player’s winning ticket in some casino businesses will be considered void and without effect if he requires it after the next draw occurs. So the player needs to check out the casino policy regarding this matter.
