Keno is part-lottery, part-bingo, with some unique rules of its own in the mix as well, and this creates a game experience like no other.
With four games per day, it's also one of the most active lottery games in the world, and wagers can range from p10 up to as much as p1000 per line.
It's also unusual in that the player decides how many numbers to pick - from just one, up to ten numbers per line, from a pot of 80 balls.
Depending on how many numbers you choose, your odds of matching with the 20 balls drawn from the pot will change - and the prizes paid out change too (see the table below for a full breakdown of how this will affect what you win).
To play Keno, you will need to decide:
· How many numbers to pick.
· How much to wager.
Together, these will determine your odds of a win, and how much you get - it's also important to know when you haven't won too.
For instance, matching three numbers is a win if you only chose six. But choose seven to ten numbers, and you'll get nothing for matching three.
There is also a kind of 'bad beat' consolation prize if you chose ten numbers and did not match with any of the 20 balls drawn, and you'll get p30 back for a p10 wager.
Automatically draws take place daily for 24 hours, there are three different kinds of Keno Results:90 Seconds(Drows be taken every 90 Seconds and total 960 results per day) ; 120 Seconds (Drows be taken every 120 Seconds and total 720 results per day)and 300 Seconds(Drows be taken every 300 Seconds and total 288 results per day).
Like in the main Lotto game, Dips choose your numbers at random for you, and you can wager on multiple draws in this way too.
Again, your prize will depend on how much you wager, and the table below shows how this is worked out, and how much the total cost will be depending on how many draws you play:
· Decide how many numbers you want to play - up to ten.
· Choose your numbers from the range 1-80.
· Choose how much you want to wager, either P10, P20, P30, P40, P50, P100, P200, P500 or P1000 per line.
· Choose which draw times and which kind of draw you want to enter.
· Choose how many draws you want to enter - from 1-10, 14, 20 or 28.
Prizes depend on how many numbers you played on the relevant line, with higher payouts for more difficult matches including matching all ten of your chosen numbers from the 20 drawn from the pot.
To check if you have won, first find your Prize Group (i.e. how many numbers you played) and then look across to see if there is a prize for how many matches you got.
Your wager acts as a multiplier - so prizes for a p100 wager are ten times as big as for a p10 wager, and so on.
The 'Odds' column below shows the chances of winning any prize in that Prize Group, so you can decide whether to aim for the biggest payouts, or the best odds.
