Keno brings elements of Bingo, Roulette and Poker together, and is the perfect fast win game. It’s the ideal way to warm up for a big session of casino games, or to wind a marathon down. Because it’s so immediate, it also works well when you only have a few moments to spare.Keno’s history actually goes back to Ancient China, when the legendary general Cheung Heung created the original version using the first 120 symbols in the classic One Thousand Character poem that is used to teach the traditional Chinese alphabet.
It was such a success that he was not only able to fund his armies, he had enough left over to build the Great Wall of China! The popularity of the game soon spread all over China, and it later travelled with railway workers to America. From there it moved through the rest of the world, and today it is one of the most popular casino games available. That, of course, is why you can play the best versions of it with us at River Belle.
Play Keno at River Belle
When you play Keno with us you’re going to be choosing from a pool of 80 numbers rather than one of 120 characters. The land-based Keno games of today use physical balls, each bearing a number and drawn from a drum, and we recreate that at River Belle with impressive graphics and trusted Random Number Generation.
Before the drawn numbers are announced, you choose your own and select them on your Keno ticket with the click of your mouse. You’ll be paid out according to how many of your numerals correspond to those that were drawn or randomly generated, and how much money you originally bet. That’s really all there is to it! Being such a game of chance, the fun in the game comes from choosing the numbers you think will be lucky and then holding your breath to see if you’ve won.
