    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.

    Sad thing is, you're actually serious about this question.

    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

    What are the odds on picking 4 numbers and railing all of them?

    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.
