Keno Casino Game

Keno - the bingo-style game loved by many - has now arrived at 32Red! With plenty of chances to hit that jackpot, your next fortune could be right here. If you’re looking for a fun, straightforward, and no-nonsense casino experience, keno is the way to go. With few rules and endless potential, keno has cemented itself as a true fan favourite.

Keno is an extremely popular game among Brits, who love trying their luck for potentially life-changing amounts of money. It’s exceptionally easy to play and can be highly rewarding if your numbers pop up. There’s not much skill involved, as players simply rely on whatever omnipresent force or deity they choose for good luck.

The name has Latin origins, but the game itself originates from China. Legend has it that this simple lottery-style game saved an ancient city from war and raised funds to build the Great Wall of China. With such a rich history, keno has been enjoyed by people all around the world for generations.

If you go to a real casino, you’ll use paper cards to mark the numbers that you think will come up. When you play online keno, on the other hand, you’ll get a virtual card which you can tap on to select your desired numbers. This is the only difference in an otherwise lifelike online casino experience that is sure to keep you coming back for more.

Playing keno online is simple. Choose up to 15 numbers from the 80 provided and watch as 20 numbers are drawn completely at random. You win if your selected numbers match those that are drawn, with payouts calculated based on how many numbers you pick and how many matches you get. It’s all really rather simple.

So, if you’re looking to play keno online, there’s nowhere better than 32Red. Come and join in the fun to see if you can find those winning numbers in our online keno game. There’s nothing to it really, just select your numbers and wait for the draw. A game of luck and suspense, keno is a truly essential game for casino-lovers.

How to Play Keno

Keno might seem a little daunting to anyone who’s never played it before, but it’s actually incredibly simple. Much like the lottery or bingo, 20 numbers are drawn at random from a range of 1 through 80 either in a pot or by using a random number generator. Players can bet on up to 15 numbers they think will come up during the draw.

When you load keno up online, you’ll be presented with a board of 80 numbers. Select up to 15 of those using your mouse (or finger if playing on a phone) and when you’re ready, proceed to the draw. From the basket below the board, 20 balls will be drawn, each with a single number on it (fans of bingo will no doubt be familiar with this mechanism). If your chosen numbers match those on the balls, you win.

There are two main strategies players can take when playing keno online. Betting on more numbers gives you a higher probability of matching at least some, but your rewards aren’t as well paid. On the other hand, if you select only a few numbers and they all come up, you stand to win a lot more.

That said, matching a larger amount of numbers gets you the highest value prizes. If you match all 15 numbers, for instance, you stand to win an absolutely insane amount of money. While it’s unlikely this will happen, the fact that keno is almost all luck-based means that there’s a very real possibility of you winning that jackpot.

Keno is very uncomplicated in its dynamics. It’s essentially just a game of luck, with practically no skill involved at all. It’s ideal for more relaxed gamblers or those who just want a break from other, more brain-powered table games like poker and blackjack. Taking it easy is not the same as being lazy, since many keno players ride their luck and go on to win huge amounts of cash!

Playing keno online is certainly worth a shot, regardless of your prior casino experience. Whether you’re new to the game or you’re a seasoned casino-goer, there’s nothing simpler than winning at keno. A simple game that provides easy thrills, keno is the perfect experience for just about everyone.

Paytables & Values

In keno, the amount you win is determined by several factors. These are: your total bet value, the amount of numbers you select, and the amount of matches you get. Mathematical probabilities determine how much each win is worth, depending on the factors listed previously, and ultimately how much money you’ll end up getting.

In the table below, you’ll see a complete list of all the multipliers and values that your matching numbers pay out. This is perhaps the only complicated bit about keno, as the values are determined by maths. The first column shows how many matches you get in one game of keno. The top row indicates how many numbers you put a wager on.

As you can see, not every winning combination pays out.

Payouts and Hand Values

11 3,000 2,000 500 500 300
12 4,000 3,000 1,000 600
13 6,000 2,000 1,200
14 2,500 7,500
15 10,000

Finding just a single match in 10 numbers doesn’t reward you with anything, since it’s highly likely that you’ll at least get one match from 10 or more bets. That said, practically every other winning combination pays out, giving you a lot of opportunities to pocket some extra cash.

What else can we learn from the table? Well, the biggest wins come from a large amount of matching numbers. For instance, you’ll win 1,200x your total stake if you put 9 wagers on and match every single one. But the real jackpot is with 15 bets. If you manage to successfully match all 15 numbers, you’ll win a whopping 10,000x your original wager!

If you bet on more numbers, the higher the chances you are of finding a match and the better prizes you could potentially win. However, it can also be worth betting on fewer numbers to try and secure that 100% match record. Whichever way you choose to play, keno provides endless entertainment with little effort required by you - ideal for getting your quick fix of online casino in between jobs.
