Keno Strategy

Keno is truly a game of random chance. Many players pick their lucky numbers based on anniversaries, birthdays, or other memorable events, but any of the numbers can be selected at equal likelihood from the others.

Some players select higher numbers equally to lower numbers, but as Keno is a game of chance, what may work well for a player one time may not work again. Once you have your lucky numbers lined up, you're all set to play.

Dining options near our Keno hall include Ocean Trail—a modern seafood bar, and Palo Verde Lounge—a great place to relax and grab smaller bites.

Step 1: With a Keno crayon, mark your favorite numbers on a black Keno ticket. You may mark up to 15 numbers (see Keno pay line for $5 and $10 special tickets). Mark your numbers with an "X."

Step 2: Indicate the total numbers selected and the amount of your wager in the right margin of your ticket(s).

Step 3: Finish filling out your ticket before you approach the Keno desk. Give your ticket(s), along with the amount of your wager, to one of our friendly Keno employees. You will receive an official game ticket in return. Check this computer-generated ticket to verify that it is accurate. It is the player's responsibility to see that the official ticket is error-free.

Step 4: Watch one of the Keno display boards located throughout the casino. As the winning numbers are drawn, they will be lit on the boards. If you are unsure of how much you have won, let one of our friendly Keno employees review it for you.

Step 5: Present your winning ticket to one of our friendly Keno employees. The amount you win depends on the type of ticket you play, the amount of money you wager and the total correct numbers you select. The minimum wager on straight ticket(s) is $1.
