Keno, bingo, and lotto are three popular online casino games that rely on luck.
Keno is similar to state lottery games in that you choose numbers and find out if any of the numbers you chose match numbers drawn, with various payouts based on the number of matches you have. With keno, numbers are drawn all the time, so there are far more opportunities to win or lose. Web casino versions of keno are even more fast-paced than land casino versions of the games, but the odds with online keno are slightly better than with live keno.
To play, you pick up to 10 numbers between 1 and 80 that you think will be drawn. You place bets on each number, and await the outcome, which is near-instantaneous in online keno. Since keno is a game of pure chance, there’s not a real strategy that can help you win. However, smaller bets, like five number bets, though they don’t have the cachet of larger number bets, are often more profitable to online keno players over the long term because they tend to result in more payouts, and are cheaper to make, so your bankroll usually lasts longer.
Online bingo is very similar to land bingo. You should choose your cards based on the number of players and the total payout, as well as the regularity of big prize winnings. You should also play free bingo for a while to learn the ropes and see what online bingo is like before playing for money. Many online bingo games make it hard to win the top prizes, where you match all the numbers on your card. If fewer than 40 numbers are drawn, you’ll have virtually no chance of matching all your card numbers. If 60 or more numbers are drawn, then your odds improve significantly.
Some online bingo sites will do the “daubing” for you, and some will offer the option of calling bingo for you. If this is true, you basically don’t have to do anything except wait for the numbers to be called. But if you are not on one of these sites, keep an eye on your cards. If you wait too long to call bingo, your winnings may be split between more people, lowering your take.
Online lotto games are based on lottery games that have been around since ancient times. You can buy lottery tickets online for games based in other countries. In some cases you can buy multiple lottery tickets in bulk for a lower cost per ticket than if you bought each ticket individually. Plus, the more tickets you buy, the better your odds. In the US, some states allow the purchase of lottery tickets online, including Powerball tickets, which can have enormous payouts.
