River Belle Casino Brings Trinidad and Tobago The Best Online Keno
Keno originated in China, despite its distinctly French and Latin name. The Han Dynasty supposedly lay in watch over the very first game of Keno, more than 3000 years ago. The legend goes that they Han Dynasty were involved in a long and very costly war that had depleted the coffers completely. High taxes were at the order of the day, but even this was no longer paying off sufficiently.
Keno – so the story goes – was Cheung Leung’s way out of poverty. Keno was invented to become a State-owned Lottery in order to raise the necessary funds to finish the war. According to historical writings, Keno was also utilised in order to raise funds for the construction of the Great Wall of China. A number of other historical records seem to indicate that the Chinese State Lottery hadn’t been established until the 1800’s. We will possibly never know which of the historical accounts are true, but what we do know is Keno has stood the test of time, as it is so enjoyable!
A Great Game Goes Online
Keno was originally played with 120 Chinese characters; 40 more than the 80 that are commonly used today. Chinese soldiers first brought Keno to American shores in the early twentieth century and at this point the game’s Chinese characters were changed to numbers in order for the game to be easily understood. It’s this version of the game you’ll enjoy at River Belle, and getting in on the action is easy!
