    Hey all I was just wondering if anyone knows who offers live keno still? I saw it at the Flamingo last Sept, but it was closed both times I attempted to play it! I just remember going to Vegas the first few times and filling out Keno slips when I was eating at the buffet at Harrahs! Just brought me back and makes me want to do it this trip! Any input would help!

    Excalibur still has Live Keno.. Keno cards are purchased at the sports book. I don't know if they have Keno runners anymore. Downtown Golden Nugget has it.. and the off stip casinos are more likely - (Rio, Sam's Town etc) to have Live Keno.

    Caesars still has Keno. I'm not sure if they have runners any more.
    The Keno "lounge" is right by the sportsbook and it's very easy to get drink tickets for playing keno.

    I played it at 4 Queens back in Oct.
    Bally's also has it.

    Lots of choices downtown - Four Queens, El Cortez, The D, Smug Nugget, Fremont, California.

    You can buy a ticket at the D, Cal, or Fremont, and follow on your phone, laptop, phablet, or piPhone 3.14

    Sadly it was no where to be seen during my November trip. I think they may have finally thrown in the towel.

    Treasure Island was still up and running though.

    Thank you all for the responses! I know its a older, no less popular game, but I wish theyd keep it around!

    It's an old, terrible game with an obscene house edge.

    Completely unsavvy.

    I play it every trip.

    You can play up to 1000 games in Bally's and then watch on Kenousa.com if you are leaving Vegas, or channel 27 if you are staying in Ballys.

    Did you know Bally's has 2 games. The more common Blue and less common Green. And besides the main Keno lounge at the front of the casino by the front door, there is a Keno desk in the Sidewalk Cafe at the rear of the Casino, but they are only open mornings until 2:00 pm. Still if you are staying in the North (Indigo) tower and don't want to trek all the way to the front entrance to place a keno bet, it's convenient if open. I'm pretty sure each CET prop offers keno, most offer 2 games.

    Orleans, Gold coast or any of the Boyd casinos(needs verification) offer it too.

    Best Keno room in vegas is at The Orleans! We love it. GREAT drink service. We just enjoy sitting down, talking getting some drinks and playing the game. We used to like the keno room at Excalibur, but they wont give you free drinks. You have to bet a certain amount ,cant remember the amount $10 maybe??? And then they give you a drink coupon. When the server does come through you have to wave your coupon this is the way it was in the last couple of years and the last time, it just got under my skin.

    I mostly win in keno. video poker for me is a losing game.
    I once played all cards, and got my $ back + $10.

    I always play NY keno(Quick Draw) on 50% days. Best spots are 2,3,4,7.
    rest are losers with high odds low payouts.
    Just yesterday a lady by accident bought $10 of QD, hit on 5x extra, +50%, winning her $600.

    Yeah, I think CP finally chucked keno at some point last year. They put in some VP machines with payouts rivalling live keno games.
