Welcome to BestCasino.netís keno tips section.
This is where we try to guide you a little in your play so
that you might have a better time or, at the very least, not
find yourself completely out of luck.
Playing Keno and Video Keno is like picking
your lottery numbers. There isn't really much you can do to
influence or predict the result. It is all down to luck. In
Video Keno, always play from 3 to 8 spots, and play the maximum
amount of coins allowed
1. When you get to the casino, have a walk around.
Know where the keno outlets, monitors, writers (and big board
if there is one) are. Stop by the keno booth and pick up the
booklet, which they will give you for free. It will answer
any questions about specific differences or options available
at the casino relating to keno. If you happen to get disoriented
it can cost you, as our next tip will demonstrate.
2. Pay attention to your game. If the game ends
while you're eyeballing the crowd at the blackjack or craps
table, you'll have to make a mad dash for the keno writer!
The keno writer is the nice guy or girl who sells you your
ticket, and if you don't make it there to cash in a winning
ticket before the next game starts (in most Vegas casinos
that's five minutes) you don't get to cash it in at all!
3. The computer uses different algorithms to
randomly pick numbers. Play your numbers in patterns instead
of spreading them out all over.
4. In playing Keno remember the payouts and
try to keep your winnings below what you have to pay taxes
on. Usually I play 9 numbers for a max payout of 2500 on a
quarter bet but I am really trying to get 8 out of 9 for a
payout of 1175.
5. Keep your numbers the same regardless of
what you pick until you hit large on them. You will always
come out ahead at least once. When you are, even if it is
only by $1, cash out and do it again!
6. Try playing the top 2 lines. Play 1,2,5,10,11
and 2 others of choice. Vary your choices and you will hit
at least 5/7 and probably 7/7 within an hour.
