Keno Games at Spin Casino

Keno is very simple to learn and enjoyable to play, especially if you are doing so with us here at our online casino. The origins of the game actually go back thousands of years, all the way to Ancient China. Legend has it that the famed General, Cheung Leung, was desperate to fund his army, which was constantly doing battle with various enemies.

Leung developed a lottery based on the first 100 characters of a classic poem that was used to teach children the traditional Chinese alphabet. This proved so successful that, in addition to supporting his army's needs, there were enough funds to help build the Great Wall of China! Now Keno has spread around the world, in casinos online and on land.

How Keno Works

Rather than using 100 characters and Leung did, most modern Keno games (including ours) use the numbers 1 to 80. When you play a physical game, you'll choose up to 15 of these numbers and mark your selection on a ticket. A caller will pull balls with the numbers from a barrel, and announce them. At Spin Casino, you use your cursor or fingertip to do the same thing on a simulated Keno card.

The casino online results are created using Random Number Generation software that is checked and certified as completely fair. Smooth animations help bring the action to life, and the lucky numbers are displayed by having simulated balls bounce across the screen and hit the appropriate spots on your virtual ticket.

As you can see from this brief description of how to play Keno NZ, it’s almost identical to playing the lottery. You select numbers from the range, submit your ticket, and then wait for the results. Unlike a land-based lotto, you don’t need to wait hours, days, or weeks for the draw. Instead, the results start appearing as soon as you click or tap the play button.

The fantastic turnaround time is just one of the benefits of selecting Keno numbers online. Being able to play the game in the comfort of your own home whenever it suits you is another benefit, as is having access to the finest editions of Keno online. The options at our casino for Kiwi players are powered by Microgaming’s award-winning software, so you can expect nothing less than first-rate graphics, audio, and playing action, as well as fair results.

Strategy Advice For Playing Keno

There isn't much to say in the way of strategy for Keno; the fun comes in waiting to see the lucky numbers that fate decides to show. Our best advice is to enjoy this online casino game for what it is, and not let yourself get carried away with it. The action comes very fast, so if you often lose track of how much you are spending, be sure to take advantage of our deposit limits feature.

As always, never bet anything that you can't afford to lose, and treat every payout as an unexpected windfall. Be careful not to fall into the trap of buying more tickets to get better odds; no matter how many you buy, each card has an equal chance of winning.

In addition to following the advice above, you might want to consider Keno odds when deciding which numbers to pick. The odds of selecting 15 matching numbers out of 20 is approximately 1 in 41,751,453, while the odds of selecting 6 matching numbers out of 20 is approximately 1 in 5.2. The odds of selecting 5 (1 in 4.2) or 4 matching numbers out of 20 (1 in 4.8) are even better. To some players, this means that a Keno strategy winning chances are better if they limit their selection to 4, 5, or 6 numbers. Some players go a little further by selecting between 7 and 11 numbers, as they offer bigger potential wins.

Whatever your approach to selecting numbers, it’s important to remember that the Keno winning results are produced by Random Number Generation (RNG) software. Nothing can influence those results, so the outcome is completely unpredictable.

Keno Payouts

At our online casino, your return in Keno is calculated according to how many of the winning numbers are on your ticket, and how much you bet in the first place. This can get very lucrative, and many people set great store by the specific numbers they choose. Whether they hold significant meaning or are selected arbitrarily is up to you.

When deciding which online Keno games to play, some players prefer to launch games in demo mode and check the pay table to find the options that offer the most generous potential payouts. You can also check potential Keno payouts when you start selecting numbers.

The pay table that appears on screen should change with every number you select. For example, if you select 5 numbers, the pay table may update to show 5/600. This means that, if all 5 numbers are correct, you will win 600x your bet.

The Return to Player percentage (RTP) is another factor that you could consider when choosing Keno games. The RTP is the percentage of your bets that theoretically should be returned to you over time. Some of Microgaming’s versions of the classic game have a 94% RTP, while others have a 96% RTP. The latter is the potentially more generous game.
