Keno

 

Introduction

NetEnt kenoKeno is a lottery type game available in many casinos both on and offline.

 

 

Play Structure

There are 80 numbers from which the player will select between 1 and 20. The number of balls selected varies depending on the rules at the casino in question and the preference of the player.  Most online casinos allow the player to select a maximum of either 10 or 15. Once all players have made their selections and paid for their tickets, a drawing similar to a lottery takes place, with the 80 balls bouncing around inside a dome and 20 of them selected at random.

Generally the more of the selected balls that match the player’s selection, the bigger the payoff.

 

 

Payouts

The payouts for Keno games vary widely. In general most software providers offer their own unique paytables so it is impossible to define a standard. Below you will find the paytables for all known Keno games at major software providers. Before that you’ll find a summary of the Keno games we’ve looked at including the best number of balls to select for each game;

* The above House Edge figures do not take into consideration the Progressive Jackpot that is associated with this game. This jackpot is triggered randomly. As such the House Edge figures will be lower than those actually returned by the game, but without knowing the frequency the jackpot is paid out it is impossible to determine the exact figure.

*Klub Keno is played with 40 balls and only 10 balls are selected.

** This game involves a ‘Star’ ball that occurs randomly and doubles any wins if it lands on one of your selected numbers. The first House Edge figure is representative of the times when you receive the Star ball and the negative figures represent the fact that the player has an advantage. The second figure is representative of the House Edge when you do not receive a Star ball. The overall House Edge is not calculatable without knowing the frequency of occurrence of the Star ball.

* Krazy Keno offers a ‘Bonus Ball’ feature for players playing the maximum number of coins. When this happens some rounds, denoted by the ‘Star Balls’ in the hopper at the top of the screen, will include a Bonus Ball (always the last ball selected). When playing with a Bonus Ball, if one of the numbers you’ve selected is the Bonus Ball all prizes are doubled. The first House Edge figure in the table above is the House Edge when playing less than 4 coins or without a Bonus Ball. The second figure is the House Edge when playing with a Bonus Ball (including a player advantage on some selections). The third figure (TO BE ADDED) represents the combined House Edge calculated using the Bonus Ball frequencies provided by IGT.

Optimal Strategy and House Edge

 

 

Optimal Strategy

In the above tables you will be able to see the House Edge figures for each number of balls selected in each version of the game. The only strategy decision when playing Keno is to choose the number of balls than minimizes the House Edge.

It should be noted that the House Edge for online and offline are usually substantially different. While this article specifically looks at the online variations, reports suggest that the House Edge for offline Keno is usually substantially higher, often exceeding 20%. However the rate of play when playing offline is far slower than the online (or virtual) games. This means that while the House Edge figures for the online game may look far more attractive than the offline variants, these games can end up costing the player far more due to the increased volume of bets derived from the increased rate of play.

 

 

Odds for other games

Below we’ve included a calculator to allow you to derive the House Edge for any combination of paytable and ball selection;

 

 

Mathematics of Keno and Useful Numbers

For the more mathematically inclined we’ll include a basic example of how to calculate the House Edge for a specific number of balls selected with a specific paytable.

For this particular calculation we would recommend using Excel. As the numbers involved are often very large, the majority of scientific calculators will round off several digits resulting in less accurate calculations. As such below we will use Excel formatting to display the sum

For this example we’ll use the Playtech paytable for 5 balls selected

5        820 for 1
4          12 for 1
3            3 for 1

The sum to calculate the House edge would look as follows;

=((COMBIN(20,5)*819)+(COMBIN(20,4)*COMBIN(60,1)*11)+(COMBIN(20,3)*COMBIN(60,2)*2)-(COMBIN(80,5)-COMBIN(20,5)-( COMBIN(20,4)*COMBIN(60,1))- (COMBIN(20,3)*COMBIN(60,2))))/ COMBIN(80,5)

To give as simplified as possible an explanation of what the above means;

(COMBIN(20,5)*819) – The number of ways of choosing 5 balls from 20 multiplied by the payout for receiving 5 balls.
(COMBIN(20,4)*COMBIN(60,1)*11) – The number of ways of choosing 4 balls from the selected 20 alongside one non-selected ball multiplied by the payout for receiving 4 balls.
(COMBIN(20,3)*COMBIN(60,2)*2) – The number of ways of choosing 3 balls from the selected 20 alongside two non-selected balls multiplied by the payout for receiving 3 balls.
You sum the above to get the total won over every winning combination.

Then you subtract the losses for every non-winning combination;

(COMBIN(80,5)-COMBIN(20,5)-( COMBIN(20,4)*COMBIN(60,1))- (COMBIN(20,3)*COMBIN(60,2))

So the total number of ways to select 5 balls out of 80 minus the winning combinations from above.

Finally we divide the answer by the total number of ways to select 5 balls out of 80 to get the average loss on an individual round of play.

Below you’ll find table with some useful numbers for manual calculation of Keno House Edge figures if you don’t currently have access to Excel.
