Keno Straight Tickets

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.

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 (group of numbers). There can be no overlap.

The only advantage to a split ticket is the convenience of playing two or more 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.

Some Tips In Keno Betting

Keno is one game that is definitely fun to play,especially when one wins it big. It is also a very addicting game to get into. But in order to really be able to cash in on the game, you must know how to bet properly on the game. Here are some tips and tricks that you can use in filling your keno game cards. One thing to remember when using these suggestions is that these are only meant to increase your chances in the game and should not be used as a long term strategy. Considering the probabilities associated with the game, no strategy can be really devised that can beat the game and give a long term winning streak to the player.

Use many combinations

Instead of trying to win big by going for the major combinations, you can play the smaller combinations. This way you can ensure that your bets will not be depleted immediately while slowly increasing your winnings. You can further increase your chances on the small bets by playing many combinations. These combinations offer a wider variety of play that you can find useful in as many different ways. The different combinations that you can play are already shown in the side of the ticket, or in case of online keno, can be easily clicked on screen.

One combination that you can play is the “2/3 1/6” game, also called the way ticket. In here, you mark the appropriate box on then mark six numbers on the card. You the encircle an additional two groups of three numbers each. The bet on these combinations is $3 and you divide it evenly on the three combinations, a dollar for each one. This way you can increase your chance in the draw.

Another way that you can use to boost your odds is by using a king. A king is basically any number that is encircled alone in a card. This number can then be used on all the combinations that are then played on the card. This way, you can be assured of winning many combinations as long as these have the king.

How much bet to place

As have been said before, it would be very unlikely to get the jackpot in one shot. So rather than trying to win it by placing several large bets, you can play smaller bets on the game. One easy way that you can increase your winnings is by playing progressive jackpot. In this play, the jackpot is increased after each draw as more people play. One thing good about playing in progressive jackpots is that the house edge actually decreases over time. This means that for the succeeding draws, you can gen higher and higher chances of winning. In some cases, the jackpots in some casinos have gotten so big that players can expect a hundred percent return on their bets.

For those who want to get even more cash from the game, it would be better to go casino hopping instead of sticking to one joint. Casinos offer differing pays on the game, so players can compare their tables and chose the ones with the highest returns. This way, you can be sure to get a good deal even with the same starting bet.

Keno Catches

Explanation of keno catches.

In the game of keno a ‘catch’ is when one of your numbers is picked in the draw.

If you ‘catch 5’ it means that 5 of your numbers were picked.

Winning keno catches

The keno payout schedule shows what you would win for each number of catches. For instance here is a payout schedule for a 6-spot game (ie a game in which you have chosen 6 numbers). Note that win nothing for 1 or 2 catches:

Catch play $1 play $2  play $5 
3 $1 $2 $5
 4  $8  $16  $40
 5  $50  $100  $250
 6  $1500  $3000  $7500

Occasionally you will find special “Catch All” pay schedules. In these games you are betting that you will catch all the numbers that you selected. You will be paid only if all the numbers you chose show up.

You can also use the term in a more general way to denote winning; ‘catch a big jackpot’.

Keno Combination Tickets

‘Combination Tickets’ are a special type of keno ticket. Here are a few tips on how to use the.

As the name suggests, keno combination tickets combine a number of different selections on the same ticket.

For instance, with combination tickets you may pick a 3-Spot (ie a set of 3 numbers) and a 5-Spot (5 numbers) for the same draw. Instead of filling in two separate tickets you can show them on the same one.

To do this you simply mark all 8 numbers as normal, then indicate clearly that they are to be divided into two groups. You could do this by drawing a line round the numbers in each group, or putting a thick line through the grid so that you have 3 numbers on one side and 5 on the other.

Then you show your choice by completing your card as in this example:

Some tickets don’t have specific boxes to show the numbers of ways you are playing. In this case just write the information the boxes Then you show your choice by writing on the card:
