Why do all gambling websites hate Keno? All say house has highest edge, low odds and payouts, etc. from: http://www.casinogamblingstrategy.org/keno/ "The house edge on a keno bet is between 20% and 35%. That's an astronomical number when you compare it with the 0.5% house edge on a blackjack or video poker bet." http://www.wikihow.com/Win-Keno says to stay away from Keno. In fact, I have done the math and odds and see nothing wrong with Keno. I play NY Quick Draw often, especially on +%50 days. The game compares fairly well with NY Numbers, Win4, Take5. Numbers: $1 box 835 wins $80 for 1:167 odds. $1 straight wins $500 for 1:1000 odds. ok, not bad as odds/payout = 1/2. However, if you have 825 you get bubkas. In fact, I have just written out all 000-999 on Numbers cards, for a total of $500, so a $3 combo wins $250, losing $250. $1 each game = $1000 winning $500. So either way you lose if playing all possible numbers. Thus, you win only if playing $1 on 1/4 of all numbers for $250 hoping to win $500. Ifcourse, I could bet $100 on a straight to win $50,000 for 1:1000 instead of Take5 1:575757. Also, T5 winnings are shared, and 2nd prize often goes above $600 so you pay a tax. Win4 is often won on $10 straight, $5k x 10. QD: $1 2 spot wins $10 for 1:16.7 odds; same as above. 3 spot 2 chances, $1/2 = 0.50-line. Thus, if $23x2 = $46 for 1:71 odds that's better than above. 4 spot 3 chances $1/3 = 0.33, making $55 for 1:325 better than Take5. I get either 10 or 20 draws of 2,3,4,7,9 spots. Anything I lose on more spots is made up by winnings on less spots. I see no sense in playing 1,5,6,8,10 spots. 7 spots I get $50 on 5 draws, so that if I hit all 7 spots $5000x10 = $50,000. In the casinos I play multi-draw Keno, 26 cards, and I always win something. I try to keep winnings below tax rate, so I only play 1-4 spots. On 9 spots I always get %50+ back of my bet.
