So Keno is kind of a boring game, but at least it’s easy and quick to play. The idea is simple, you pick between 1 and 10 numbers and then Torn draws 10 numbers randomly.
If your numbers match the drawn numbers you can win a prize (if you choose more than 7 numbers you need two matches to win a prize)
Now the odds of this game aren’t good, and they don’t change (unlike blackjack, hi-lo and poker). Here is a table of expected returns:
|Picks||Return per 1 bet|
As you can see there is no correlation between how many numbers you pick and the odds of winning. The best ‘loss’ is the 6 picks, as you only lose 0.0024 of your stake. But of course your max win is only 4b.
Personally if I have no time to do slots or blackjack I play Keno with 10 numbers – As the prize and odds of the top prize are the best, even though in the long run I lose more than 9 numbers. The trick here is to win the jackpot before you’ve played 10b worth of games.
Here is the winnings table:
If you do play good luck!
