I was wondering how many people out there are actually winning anything at keno? I sit there and cannot believe that I cannot even get one dollar some days, then of course. The very game you are done or change the numbers there they are. Anybody have a trick or suggestion on how to beat the system??? Thanks

You're a fool if you think that there's a trick to beat the system. The numbers are drawn at RANDOM. That means there is no pattern, no guessing, no secrets to be found. It's all about odds and they are never in your favor. The only way to win is to not play. I do not understand why people do not understand this? Go outside, read a book, paint your house. Do better things with your money other than trying to get rich gambling.

Keno offers some of the very worst odds in all of gaming. That said, the immediate nature of the game and the prospect of a big payout that never happens makes it very addicting. Having the Lottery offer Keno is on a par with having the state sell crack. Just seeing the convenience stores that have become mini-casinos is depressing. And every one of the people you see hanging around waiting for the results looks like they could desperately use the money for food, clothing and other necessities.

You really have alot of "audacity" asking about this.

Try this

1. Lie- I watched the Obama campaign since the Primaries and they lied every day. That is one thing that worked quite well for them.

2. Hope- If you hope to win long enough, then you will win. If the numbers don't come out then just tell the lottery agent that you were hoping to win and maybe it will work out for you. According to Obama's so called plan, it should.

3. Change- Change your numbers after the drawing to match the winning numbers. Changing answers after finding out what the people wanted the answers to be worked for Obama. If this doesn't work, I am sorry but all that you will have left in your pocket is change.

LOL - applying politics to a keno thread? Please. Everyone knew McCain was going to lose, given that the republicans have effed everything up for so long. What did you really expect?

Danno, relax, i was bored sitting here at the computer and thought people who like keno would reply. I wasnt looking to get yelled at. And politics, I am so sick of politics. I did a write in vote as neither of them are telling the truth. No one out there cares about us little people. But i am so sick of politics was looking for a fun topic and some shared commiserating and some fun suggestions. Arent you always open to learning a new trick or two? Someone has to be winning other than the State I hope. And please I can play 20 games for what I see people come in looking to get rich on the 10 and 20 dollar tickets. Want to talk about throwing your money in the garbage? They arent even for fun. And when they win 10 or 20 they replay the money anyway.

I think a good night of keno means it pays for some of my drinks. But there's no secret to success. I usually play one to three numbers for five games at a buck a pop and see what happened. If I'm lucky, maybe I keep playing.

Still, I got this friend that seems to win ALOT. Must be some genetic thing. He's one of those people.

Your best bet would be to play 4 #'s and stick with those 4 #'s all the time.

State wins everytime, they just string you along. Playing Keno is a fun pasttime, but more fun when you win.

I wish Keno wasn't in so many restaurants. It ruins the atmosphere. Thay should have seperate sections for gamblers in those restaurants. I'd rather watch a big screen w/ sports anyday over that.

Keno is for drunks at bars and restaurants who need something to do while they get blitzed

Hey new edition, I too try the top line. You are correct, right after I play and finish, it comes out. They throw me a bone once in awhile.

Why the hate Bagdad? People like to play to maybe win, cheaper than scratch tickets that I see all over the ground when I leave a store. Also, hell of a lot cheaper fun than watching the drunks after their 6th beer. I could play a lot of Keno for the cost of that and the cigarettes they smoke. Don't you have some vice Harry?

Just not the kind with the diminishing returns. I buy the lottery tickets every xmas for friends and co workers. SO I do my part.
As for vice.

Just remember the numbers you see popping up on the screen have already been picked. The numbers are picked way in advance, your best bet is not to play.
