Keno was created in two hundred before Christ by the Chinese military leader, Cheung Leung who used this game as a monetary resource for his failing army. The city of Cheung was at war, and after awhile of war time seemed to be facing national famine with the drastic decrease in supplies. Cheung Leung had to come up with a fast fix for the economic calamity and to create revenue for his army. He therefore invented the game we now know as keno and it was a wonderful success.

Keno once was well-known as the White Pigeon Game, because the winning numbers were sent out by pigeons from bigger cities to the smaller towns. The lotto ‘Keno’ was brought to America in the 19th century by Chinese expatriates who headed to the US to jobs. In those times, Keno used 120 numbers.

Today, Keno is typically wagered on with 80 numbers in almost all of the US based casinos along with net casinos. Keno is commonly liked today because of the relaxed nature of wagering the game and the simple fact that there are no skills required to enjoy Keno. Regardless of the reality that the chances of coming away with a win are terrible, there is always the hope that you might win quite big with very little gaming investment.

Keno is enjoyed with eighty numbers and 20 numbers are drawn each round. Gamblers of Keno can select from two to ten numbers and wager on them, as much or as little as they are able to. The pay out of Keno is according to the bets made and the roll out of matching numbers.

Keno has grown in popularity in the United States since the close of the 1800’s when the Chinese letters were replaced with , American numbers. Lottos weren’t covered under the laws of wagering in the state of Nevada in 1931. The casinos renamed the ‘Chinese lotto’ to ‘horse race keno’ utilizing the concept that the numbers are horses and you are looking for your horses to place. When a law passed that taxed off track wagering, Nevada casinos swiftly changed the name to ‘Keno’.
