When we say online casino gambling, the first thing that comes to mind is slot games. However, there is more to online casino gambling than slots. Online casinos also offer table games, live casinos, traditional games (depending on their area), sports betting, lottery, bingo, and even truc tiep keno. Since many players are not that familiar with live Keno, let this be the article’s topic.
Getting to know Keno
Keno is very popular in most Asian countries, especially in Vietnam. However, there are still some people who have no idea about Keno, hence this article.
Tracing Keno’s origin will bring us back to at least 2,000 years ago, played by the Chinese. It was originally called white pigeon ticket (baige piao or pai-ko p’iao), which refers to the tickets used in a batting game that uses homing pigeons. Pai-ko p’iao has been in existence since the 3rd century in various provinces of China. It was usually played in gambling houses that were permitted to operate by the governor of the region, who gets a share of the profits.
The early Keno
Early keno or baige piao initially used a ticket with squares that contained 80 characters in Qianziwen (the book of a thousand characters). Although it is still used in some Chinese communities, modern technology has provided a more innovative way of playing Keno, changing these characters to the numbers 1 to 80. The player marks as many of these numbers as permitted, registers, and pays depending on the numbers he marked.
Twenty numbered pellets or balls are randomly drawn from a container. Players must compare these numbers with the numbers they have marked on their tickets. If some or all of the numbers on your ticket are drawn, you win prizes. Keno draws happen daily at regular intervals.
Early Keno used a ticket with Chinese characters, not numbers. The game has changed throughout the years, and the characters were changed to the numbers 1 to 80. In addition, modern technology has made it possible for players to watch as the balls are drawn via live Keno through Vietlott.
