Playing Daily Keno

Daily keno is a lottery game available to New Zealand players wishing to control how they want to play.  In a nutshell, players will have to choose as many numbers as they wish to match, running from one to seventy. Twenty numbers will be drawn every day and if players match the winning numbers, then they will win as well.

Getting Started with Daily Keno

In order to begin playing daily keno, players will need to decide on how many numbers they wish to play. They can choose anything from two to ten numbers that lie between the values of one and seventy. They could also choose to play a quick pick option, where numbers will be chosen for them.

Once players have picked the numbers they wish to play with, they will need to decide how much they wish to bet on the numbers. This can range from low to medium to high amounts bet per number. The more that player’s bet, the more they stand to win if they do end up landing a winning number.

Once players have decided how many numbers to play, which numbers to play, and what bet they wish to place, then they will need to decide how many draws they wish to play. Here they can choose any number from between one and ten.

There are twenty winning numbers in daily keno, which are, as the name suggests, drawn daily. Players will then need to match their numbers to the twenty daily winning numbers to see if they have won.

Most New Zealand daily keno outlets, whether online or land-based, will offer instructions of how to play the game.

Skill, Luck and Payout

In contrast to many other casino games, particularly the card-based games such as poker and blackjack, daily keno is a lottery game that is purely based on luck. While some players may wish to analyse past results in order to help them decide on which numbers to choose, there is no real strategy to the game, and players are mostly better off just deciding to play roulette for real money and try their luck.

The payouts of daily keno vary quite immensely. Players can win small amounts that barely cover their cost of playing or they can win millions if they have a hand of extreme luck.

Some daily keno tickets will offer players a prize table where they can get an idea of potential winnings, that is, they can get an estimate of how much they could win if they match a certain number of figures. Prize tables, however, cannot be guaranteed.

The Quick Pick Option

If New Zealand players do not wish to select their own numbers, they can go for the quick pick option of daily keno. Regardless of whether they purchase their daily keno tickets online or if they go to a retailer, they can tell the computer system or the sales person how many numbers they wish to play, and these will then be randomly selected on behalf of the player.
