Winning numbers are drawn approximately every four minutes. Players select from 1 to 12 numbers or “spots” for each game. A computer then randomly chooses 20 winning numbers from 1 to 80 and displays them on a Keno monitor.

KENO-To-Go is a great opportunity for you to play up to 30 consecutive KENO games. All the rules and regulations are the same as the original KENO. You can leave the premises and check your ticket on-line.

KENO BONUS gives you a chance to increase your KENO winnings by 3, 4, 5 or 10 times. The overall odds of having a multiplier number (3, 4, 5 or 10) are 1:2.3

Drawing Procedures

KENO drawings take place seven days a week, Sunday, 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m., and Monday through Saturday, 5:04 a.m. to 1:00 a.m.

The drawings take place approximately 4 minutes apart.

The Lottery will select twenty (20) numbers out of a field of eighty (80) numbers ranging from number one (1) to number eighty (80).

A computer driven random number generator will select the winning numbers for each drawing. The random number generator will only select winning numbers after receiving confirmation from the Lottery’s computer system that betting for that drawing has been closed.

More specifically: There are two computer systems involved in a Keno drawing. The primary computer takes all bets. Attached to this main computer is a random number generator that is constantly shuffling 80 numbers around. Once the betting is closed, the primary computer asks the random number generator for 20 numbers. At that moment, the primary computer knows the 20 winning numbers and graphically displays them on the Keno monitors at agent locations. The random number generator is independent of the primary computer and has no way of determining which bets the primary computer accepts. The sole purpose of this generator is to continuously shuffle numbers and provide the primary computer with a set of winning numbers when asked.
