Keno Straight Tickets

Keno Straight Tickets

The ‘straight ticket’ is your basic keno ticket. It’s the most common and the simplest ticket to play.

Keno “Straight Up” ticket

You might also hear it called a ‘straight up’ or ‘regular game’ ticket. On a straight ticket you only bet on one set of numbers.

You simply choose and mark your numbers. Experienced Keno players tend to choose between 4 and 8 ‘spots’. Then decide how much you want to bet, and how many games you want to play with that set of numbers. Then you pay for your ticket.

A Good Beginners Ticket in Keno

When the numbers are drawn you look at how many of yours came up and claim your winnings according to the house payout schedule. If you’re a novice keno player, it’s best to start with straight tickets just to get used to the game. When you’re ready you might like to try some of the more complicated variations of Keno tickets.

Keno Split Ticket

Keno Split Tickets

A keno ‘split ticket’ is simply a way of making more than one straight ticket bet on the same ticket.

Each separate bet or ‘game’ is denoted by circling or drawing a line to separate off a group of numbers. On a split ticket each game must have its own unique numbers. Any given number can only be included in one game of keno (group of numbers). There can be no overlap.

Play More Keno Games at Once

The only advantage to a split ticket is the convenience of playing two or more keno games on the same piece of paper. It makes no difference to the payout. Each bet is viewed as entirely separate, and you pay for each of them.
