Playing Keno is not as strategy based as other casino games. The biggest reason for this is the game is based on luck and not on skill. The only active part a player has in the game is marking their betting ticket and paying the wager to the casino. Other than not playing at all which is a valid strategy since this has to be one of the worst bets the casinos offer, there are very few other ideas that have any validity except maybe some different ways to mark tickets. The standard way to play this game is the eight spot ticket which is difficult to hit, but players have done that every year since Keno became a casino standard.
Another popular ticket is the four corners and the four spot ticket. If a player sets up a fund for playing Keno, the fund could be $100, which would cover twenty $5 bets or 100-dollar bets. A player should set a loss limit on this game or they may lose more on it than they should. A player can mark a ticket so that one ticket could cover four or five bets at one time. The ticket could be made up of one eight spot, one four spot and three single numbers. If all of the numbers were hit when the twenty numbers were called out of the 80 possibilities, this one ticket would be worth five figures. Of course this play would eat up a 100 dollars rather quickly. On the other hand this may be a good way to play this game as the player will get this game out of their system rather fast and hopefully get on to a casino game with better player odds.
One strategy that can be done at little extra cost is to play two eight spot tickets and use numbers below forty and above forty on each. By doing this, the player hopes to catch a game that happens to play out below or above forty. This could be carried further and split the number into groups of twenty or even ten. This has as much logic as playing birthdays or any other set of personal numbers. The idea of capturing a game where the numbers congregate in one area of the eighty numbers makes a great deal of sense as this does happen all the time in Keno strategy. The cost to play extra tickets per game would be off set by more winning tickets when the numbers group in one of these sets that could be played. This idea helps to cut down the number of twenty numbers being spread out over all eighty numbers and have them group in a smaller set of number like under thirty or under twenty. Any idea like this has merit over the number of Keno games that are played each week. It is likely during any set of games that there will be games that show this congregation of numbers. This plan is far better in the long run than just guessing about eight individual numbers spread over the 80 number ticket.
The trial run on this idea could be played at a cost of less than a dollar per selection at some casinos both online and in live casinos. Since the game is random luck and not based on skill, the player that wants to continue playing Keno must have a plan to cut the odds down on winning. Segment play makes sense in that it would be easier to pick eight numbers out of twenty than it is to do the same with eighty.
