Lottery draws are popular all over the world: they give us the pleasure of dreaming of winning millions, and the real chance to do so, too! All you need to do is choose the right numbers, and someone’s got to win, so why not you? While we can’t offer the kind of jackpots that state lotteries do, we do have the next best thing: Keno. Not only do the odds in this game tend to favour the player a little more than government lotteries’ do, but the draws take place far more frequently too. In fact, at Casino La Vida, they take place whenever you want them to.
Keno is incredibly easy to learn how to play, especially if you have had a little experience with the lottery. Each game will have you choosing numbers, known as Spots, that you feel will appear in the next draw. You can typically make between 1 and 15 picks, and different prizes will be presented to you depending on how many Spots you’ve played, as well as how many you have that end up matching. When the draw takes place, 20 numbers will be selected in a range between 1 and 80, and, once they’ve been generated, the results all depend on how many you have managed to match. If enough Spots come up on both your ticket and the range selected by the RNG, then you will win a prize.
Of course, these prizes will vary depending on the type of ticket you have chosen: if you chose just 1 number, and this ends up being matched, you may win with odds of 3:1. If you bet on 10 Spots, and hit only 5, however, you could win a lot more. The more you choose, and the more numbers that Hit, or match, the bigger your prize, with the major jackpot being handed over if you Hit all the Spots.
The true history of Keno is lost in the mists of time, although it is largely believed to be true that it started out being played in ancient China. Legend has it that the game got designed by government officials who were looking for a way to fund the defence of a city, since citizens were more likely to part with their money if there was a chance to win it back and have a little fun at the same time. According to this legend, the amount of money raised so far exceeded what was required that the surplus ended up funding the building of the Great Wall of China, which stands as one of the wonders of the world to this day.
