I logged into Love My Bingo, a Cozy Gaming site, to ensure that they had Keno. Once I was sure, I read a few things to brush up on my skills.
When playing Keno, the most common bet type is known as the straight up bet. With this sort of bet players are required to choose six numbers. I often like to choose numbers that mean something to me like a birthday, anniversary or age. Once you choose numbers and select a wager, the Keno machine will dispense twenty balls. You win a specified amount based on how many of those dispensed numbers match the ones you have chosen. You must have at least three matches in order to win. The payout basically goes like this:
3 matches = wager
4 matches = 3x your wage
5 matches = 80x your wager
6 matches = jackpot prizes
You can win even more depending on your bet and how many numbers you select but that’s typically the standard payout. As with any game, Keno is in favor of the house. With this in mind, I still couldn’t stay away after I got a look at the jackpot. I played several games and lost my bankroll in no time.
I know several gamblers who play Keno religiously. One of them in particular loves to play online. I used to watch her play for hours. I don’t recall the site she used to play at but I just remember the sound of the Keno balls. Anyway, my friend was playing Keno one night and I was mixing margaritas. She had deposited and had been playing for a while. I stepped away for a moment and heard her screaming. She won something like $8,000.
It was after this amazing win that I decided that I better learn to love the game. Quite a few gamblers swear by Keno because the return can be so good. You can also play slowly like you can with bingo. I think I may give Love My Bingo another go!
