The ‘straight ticket’ is your basic keno ticket. It’s the most common and the simplest ticket to play.
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 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. (see our tips on [post2post id=”148″])
Then you pay for your ticket.
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, 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.
