    Anyone got a strategy for beating Keno?

    Why is this game so hard to beat? 80 numbers, 20 come up. It seems like it would be easy to just throw a dollar and hit 5/5 once in a while.

    If you pick 5 numbers and they all come up it pays 820 risking one dollar. Believe me it is harder than it sounds.

    Was curious if anyone out there has a good strategy for beating this game. SOmething tells me 4LC would be very insightful in this.

    Do you know why its harder than it sounds? Because it only happens one out of 1500 or so times. so for a payout of 820-1 thats gotta be one of the highest house edge casino games available, besides perhaps back alley Three Card Monte.

    yep best strategy for "beating" (not losing your shirt) is to NOT PLAY KENO

    much better shot on a roulette wheel or craps table if you are looking for huge payout odds

    or a 10 team parlay, all of which stand much better shots of hitting than KENO

    It also sounds easy to get to 21 before the dealer, pick if the color is going to be red or black, roll any number before a 7, figure out what the **** goes on a woman's head, play a hand higher then your oppenent, quit gambling if your battle4life, and pick who the hell is going to win a simple sporting event

    As gambleballs mentioned there is no strategy to beat this game other than being exceptionally lucky.
    Payout tables give the house a huge edge. Probability of hitting 5/5 is 1 in 1551.

    The video versions give much better payouts than live games but even then you will be much better (generally less badly) off playing European Roulette is the aim is a big payoff for small stake.

    Keno is very hard to win. Even if you win, people tend to give it all back.

    Warrior won't reply anytime soon. He tried to scam the wrong people of a five figure sum acting as a fake bookie and now has a "warrior real name is a scammer and a thief" website about him published.

    chance of hitting one number out of 80 is 4-1. and the payout is only 2.5-1. do not play this unless drunk in a bar. and do not play the multiplier.

    Yes, get the correct numbers on your card before the other players on their cards. That’s usually the best advice for playing bingo.

    Mathematically there is no any strategy which can be used in real life (not on paper) for guaranteed profit in long term. It's just a matter of luck

    Want to win at Keno? Take one of those little crayons they give you and shove it in your ear far enough to pierce your brain. You'll thank me later.

    Yes. Most bingo places in Vegas offer several sessions per day. Pick a time when there aren't so many people playing - usually early in the morning or late in the evening. Then buy in for the maximum they'll allow.

    In Vegas, they say, don't change your numbers.
    Change machines, before you change your numbers.

    That's it
    Get free drinks, until the bartender sees you are broke. Thats how that goes.

    Fun to play in passing time but that is all. Payouts don't come close to real odds.
