Play Online Keno

Keno is a numbers game that originated in Ancient China and is thought to be the forefather of the modern lottery or ‘lotto’ system that is played in many countries around the world. Online Keno is one of the most popular online casino games for Canadians as the game is easy to play, a great deal of fun and is also the ideal way to get into online casino gaming at top Canadian online casinos.

How Online Keno works

Online Keno is a very simple game to follow, and it only takes a minute or two to learn how to play. Online Keno consists of a numbered card, sometimes called a ‘scorecard’ with eighty numbers on it. To begin playing, a player places a bet and then proceeds to choose up to ten numbers. As you can no doubt tell, the game is very similar to your average lotto game.

The numbers also have different payout values depending on the initial bet that is placed. Some Canadian online casinos also offer bigger Keno games where up to twenty numbers can be chosen for bigger payouts. Once all bets have been placed, the online casino then proceeds to pick the set or numbers randomly, again quite similar to regular lotto games that you see on TV. Players are then paid out based on how many of their numbers match the set of numbers drawn by the casino.
