History of Keno
Keno is the oldest casino game, invented over 2000 years ago in China. The game was originally formulated in order to raise money to build the Great Wall of China.
It is also said that funds were raised through the game to help a war effort. The lottery-inspired classic game spread to the West as Chinese immigrants entered the US in search of work.
The original version of Keno used 120 Chinese characters but when it came over to the West the rules were altered to use just 80 numbers.
All of these titles require players to pick their lucky numbers and the amount you can win varies depending on how many numbers you select correctly.
