Keno

In this section, you will find different versions of Keno. Keno is a lottery style game of chance that is particularly simple to learn and quite similar to Lotto or Bingo. It was invented in China by General Cheung Leung during the Han Dinasty, between 205 and 187 BC, in order to finance the building of the famous Great Wall of China. Instead of raising taxes, the General had the idea of launching a lottery.

At the beginning, Keno was played using 120 characters from a famous poem for children. Seven hundred years later, these characters have been replaced by 80 numbers. Western countries found out about this game thanks to the Chinese immigrants who travelled to the United States during the 19th century. Keno quickly became highly popular across the country. Gradually, the game spread throughout the rest of the world after the Second World War.

In order to win money at Keno, you need to indicate some of the 20 numbers - out of 80 - that will be drawn. During the game, you will have to check whether or not the number that has just come out is on your card.

As you can see, Keno stands out as a particularly simple game whose quick pace of play makes it really exciting. At the same time, it also demands a high degree of concentration.
