straight bets on one ticket with the player wagering one base wager

Keno is a pure game of chance; it is quite simply a lottery. But it
is a fun way to gamble and pass the time, and wagers can be placed
relatively cheaply in most casinos and online casinos.
Some of the big Vegas casinos have slowly begun to phase keno out,
but it continues to thrive in online play where you can catch as
many games as you like quickly and conveniently.
It is a popular
game among action seekers and those who are looking for a big score
without putting a lot of thought into strategy. Essentially, there
is no strategy. Pick your favorite numbers and hope for the best.
