Keno Rules

  • Keno

  • Aim Of The Game

    The objective of Keno is for the player to guess which numbers, from 1 to 80, will be randomly selected by the Keno machine. Each time the game is played, the player chooses 1 to 10 numbers (between 1 and 80) and the wagering amount. The Keno machine indicating the winning numbers will then randomly select 20 numbers. The objective is to have as many matches as possible between the numbers chosen by the player, and those randomly selected by the machine. The number of matches will be highlighted and a possible payout will be rewarded based on the number of matches.


  • How To Play

    To begin the game place a bet using the BET or BET MAX buttons. If the BET button is selected, 1 coin will be bet per game while the BET MAX button allows for 5 coins to be bet per game. Intermediate amounts can be selected by pressing the BET button multiple times. Once the bet amount has been selected, you then choose the Keno machine will randomly select the 1 to 10 numbers you believe. This is done by simply clicking on the desired number in the Keno number grid. A number may be unselected by clicking on the same number again. Once you have chosen between 1 and 10 numbers, you now select how many games you would like to play consecutively with those selected numbers using the PLAY ONE, PLAY FIVE, or PLAY TEN buttons. The PLAY ONE option plays the game once, PLAY FIVE plays the game five times, and PLAY TEN plays the game ten times consecutively.

    Selecting either the PLAY ONE, PLAY FIVE, or PLAY TEN buttons starts the game. The numbers randomly chosen by the Keno machine are shown by a Keno ball landing in the space of a particular number. Any matches with the player's selections are shown with in flashing bright yellow. The payoffs are dependent on the total numbers selected by the player and the total number of matches. The chart provided below shows the odds based on the number of player choices and the number of matches.

    Progressive Jackpot

    The top payout on a progressive jackpot machine is not fixed as in regular keno machines. The Jackpot value starts at £50,000 and grows each time somebody makes a bet.

    In order to win the Progressive Jackpot you must select ten numbers and match all ten numbers.

    You may win a share of the Progressive Jackpot for successfully matching a smaller set of numbers. For example, if you select nine numbers and successfully match all nine numbers you will win 25% of the Progressive Jackpot. If you select eight numbers and successfully match all eight numbers you will be entitled to 10% of the Progressive Jackpot. The current value of the Progressive Jackpot is displayed in the top left corner of the machine. Unlike regular Keno, Progressive Video Keno operates on a fixed denomination of £0.25.
