Lottery drawings are popular just about everywhere in the world.
They give players the chance to dream of winning millions just by picking the right numbers, and even if only a few lucky individuals actually win those life-changing sums, the dream of getting their hands on that money is enough to lift any player’s spirits as they wait for the results.
Casinos can’t offer the jackpots worth tens of millions of dollars that national and state lotteries sometimes produce, but they do have the next best thing in their own lottery game: keno.
Today, online keno allows gamblers to enjoy new drawings anytime they like, with the potential to win huge sums of money every time a new set of numbers is drawn.
Online keno is a very easy game to play, especially if you’ve tried a lottery before.
In each game, players must choose numbers (also called spots) that they hope will be chosen in the next drawing.
Players typically can make anywhere from one to 15 picks, with different prizes available depending on how many spots they choose to play.
When an online keno drawing takes place, 20 numbers will be picked in a range between 1 and 80.
Once they have been chosen, the results come down to comparing how many match those that appear on the player’s ticket.
If enough have been correctly matched, the player will win a prize.
Of course, how many numbers must be correctly matched and the corresponding prizes vary based on the kind of ticket the player has chosen.
If you select just one number, for instance, and that number is chosen, you might win at 3-1 odds (keep in mind that payouts in this game do not include the return of your initial bet, so on a $1 ticket, this would mean you receive $3, for a $2 profit).
