Online Keno at Spin Casino

Here at Spin Casino, we want to bring you the best desktop and mobile games of every kind. That includes Keno, with all of our options audited and endorsed by respected bodies for safe, fair gaming. As well as our generous bonuses and payouts, this is what makes us the best new casino in Canada.

Keno actually originated in Ancient China, so it has one of the longest histories of any casino game that you'll see when you're gambling online. Legend has it that the famed general Cheung Leung needed to find a way to raise money for the constant battles that his army was fighting. He used characters from a classic Chinese poem to create a lottery game, and everything grew from there.

Keno Goes Online

Leung's original lottery was so successful that there was enough money left over to fund the Great Wall of China. However, a few changes to Keno's structure have been made since it spread further afield, and travelled to America with railway workers. At Spin Casino, the game is played with lots of numbers from 1 to 80, rather than with 100 characters. The smooth functionality and graphics will immerse you as soon as you start playing, no matter where you are in Canada at the time.

You choose your own numbers, often called Spots, and can mark up to 15 on a ticket. When you're ready, the winning numbers are announced. In land-based games this is done by a caller; online our world-class Random Number Generation software takes care of it. If at least 1 of your chosen numbers match the Keno online results, you win. What that all looks like depends on the Keno game you choose to play, as Microgaming has created options with different themes. You can find traditional and themed Keno online casino games at Spin Casino.

Fast & exciting!

Are You a Winner?

In a physical Keno hall, of course, the caller can drum up excitement as they announce the numbers. This isn't possible at an online casino, but we've most definitely made up for it. You'll get to watch balls bounce across the screen, and then hit the winning numbers to show you what they are. You'll be paid out according to how many of the generated numbers you selected, and how much you wagered in the first place. That's really all there is to it! As soon as one round is finished, you can choose a new set of digits and start another. How you make this selection is up to you; some people have very specific lucky numbers that they play every time; others simply make random picks.

Chance-Based Action

The thrill of Keno really comes in holding your breath to see what numbers fall. Unlike in Blackjack strategy really doesn't play a role. The fast pace and bright colours are what deliver the fun here! This is great, but you do need to be careful that you don't get too caught up and spend more than you intended to. Set and stick to a budget.

Great Gambling Online

Keno is a bit like slots in that it isn’t nearly as serious as Blackjack or Poker. In fact, it's much more light-hearted than any of our table games. This makes it a perfect balance for them, and a well-rounded experience at our online casino always includes a few rounds of Keno. If you'd like to experience instant wins and adrenaline-pumping entertainment, it's time to try the casino game that General Leung made popular all those hundreds of years ago. Watch it come to life in the comfort of your own home, or wherever you are, thanks to the sophisticated software that we use at Spin Casino. Simply register your account, make your first deposit, claim your Welcome Bonus, and start marking your own lucky numbers on your Keno tickets. Good luck!

How Keno Started

Although General Cheung Leung is credited with the invention of Keno during the construction of the Great Wall of China, lottery games are probably much older. What’s more, there’s no record of Chinese lottery games in modern China before 1847, when the Portuguese colonial government issued licenses to Keno casino operators in Macau. At the time, the game was known as báigē piào, and it’s said that carrier pigeons were used to send the results to towns and villages nearby.

Later in the 1800s, Chinese emigrant workers took the game to the U.S., where it piqued the interest of other groups of people. Soon, the characters from the Thousand Character Classic that were used to play Keno were replaced with the grid of numbers that’s still used today. The game has been a staple offering in land-based casinos since the 20th century and at online gaming destinations since the 1990s.

Rules of Keno

The rules of Keno are wonderfully uncomplicated, so you should be able to familiarize yourself with them in next to no time at all. The grid features the numbers from 1 to 80, of which you can select between 1 and 15 for your ticket. The RNG software will produce 20 results after you select the play button, and if any of them match your Keno numbers, you will win the amount indicated on the paytable. At least 3 of your numbers need to match for your bet to break even.

You can place different types of bets when playing Keno at Spin Casino. There are straight bets in which you make a selection of numbers, odd/even bets in which you select a majority of odd or even numbers, and top/bottom bets in which you select a majority of numbers from the top or bottom 40 numbers on the grid.
