The Keno Tradition Comes to Our Online Casino

Many of the world’s best-loved casino games have long and proud histories, and Keno is no exception. Much older than pokies and even older than Blackjack, the origins of this entertainment stretch all the way back to Ancient China. Now New Zealanders can enjoy it in all its glory at any time, thanks to JackpotCity’s online casino.

A Game Developed to Fund an Army

The story goes that the famous Chinese general Cheung Leung needed to raise money to continue the constant battles that his troops had to fight. Taking the first 100 symbols in the classic One Thousand Characters poem that was used to teach children China’s traditional alphabet, he created a lottery-like game that soon became incredibly popular.

The general’s game was such a success that he was not only able to keep his army afloat, he even managed to contribute to the building of the Great Wall of China! Played all around the country, carrier pigeons were used to take results to rural areas leading to the nickname “The White Pigeon Game”.

Nowadays, modernised variations of Keno are played and enjoyed in online and land-based casino environments around the world. Online gambling players can use the instant-win thrills to warm up to or cool down from playing marathons, as a break between other games, or when they have only a few moments to spare.

Keno is Thrilling in its Own Right

You can enjoy the many merits of this game on its own as well as part of the full-spectrum casino experience; it’s strong enough to stand up to both. And when you play at JackpotCity the bonuses and payouts make it as rewarding as it is entertaining.

When playing at our casino online, a pool of 80 numbers is used. You choose up to 15 by marking spots on a board, and then when you’re ready you place your wager amount. Then you need to hit the “play” button, which will trigger 20 animated balls being shot onto the board.

Our outstanding Microgaming software makes this look very authentic, and a certified Random Number Generator ensures that it is all totally safe and fair. If the balls land on the number spots you chose, you could win big! You’re paid out according to what you bet, and how many of your spots are hit.

Maximum Action with Minimum Strategy

The White Pigeon game requires no tactical planning, so it is more like pokies and less like Blackjack online. 

This instant-play nature is what makes these casino games so suitable for mobile play, a few rounds at the beginning or end of a long visit to JackpotCity, or as a palate cleanser between other amusements.

Whether you are playing Keno as part or as all of your online experience, there are a few things to remember. Since there is no strategy and you stand the same chances of winning in every round, you need to stay sensible and not lose your cool.

Don’t get too caught up in the action, and never bet what you can’t afford to lose. At the same time, however, you should bet as much as possible so that when you do win your payout is as substantial as you deserve.
