Keno is a game of pure luck! Consequently, you don’t have to play strategy to improve your chances of winning. Since the selection of numbers is random, there is no relationship between the selected number and the previous or next one. Each combination has the same chances of being selected, whether this is 9, 21, 35, 38 and 57 or 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.
So, although Keno differs from games like Blackjack and Poker in the fact that player choices have little influence on the outcome of the game, there are some techniques that some players find useful:
Try to bet on numbers that haven’t come up previously, but again the ‘random’ nature of the game leaves no room for certainty.
Instead of betting on numbers that didn’t hit often, many Keno players prefer to bet on numbers that hit the most. Even in this case, we are not sure, but this game has some very interesting trends.
Select subsequent numbers (e.g. 12 and 13 or even 43 and 44). While there is no evidence that this strategy works, many Keno players believe that in the long run many of the numbers that are randomly selected are consecutive pairs.
Try to use the same set of numbers consecutively. This strategy is very simple and the most common: play the same numbers for a few turns.
The odds of Keno
Due to the large number of possible combinations in the game of Keno, or as in all other casino games , the odds remain difficult to calculate and sometimes even a little confusing. In the draw of twenty random numbers out of eighty, there are 3,535,316,142,212,174,320 different combinations! Obviously it is important to consider that the order of the numbers is not important. You simply want as many of your numbers as possible to be drawn.
If, on the other hand, you are interested in the money that can be won in Keno, if you choose 14 numbers, you will realize that you have a 2.0% chance of getting 7 of these numbers. Don’t believe it? Try playing Keno Online now.
However, the chances of getting all 14 are very low, almost infinitesimal (for this we have not included all the figures and instead use the symbol * (* 0,1) to denote very low probabilities). In practical terms, the chances of all 14 numbers being drawn are 0.00000000257 – that’s 1 in 389 million!
Remember that there is nothing ‘strategic’ about this game, but these tactics can be fun, and they definitely won’t decrease your chances of winning. Good fun!
