Good Morning Keno enthusiasts. I received the following message from Gail Howard this Sunday morning. She gave me permission to post it, COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL FROM GAIL HOWARD'S LOTTERY MASTER GUIDE BOOK.

TIPS FOR WINNING PICK-10 KENO
Basically, pick-10 Keno is a 10-20-80 game in which the player picks 10 numbers from 1 to 80, and the lottery draws 20. New York, Wisconsin and New Zealand all have 10-20-80 keno games. Usually keno is drawn daily. A few statesCalifornia's Hot Spot, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Oregon, Rhode Island, New York's Quick Draw, draw every five minutes which, of course, makes tracking complete records impossible.
Some keno games allow the player to pick fewer than 10 numbers. Others have smaller number fields to choose from. In Colorado's 10-20-60 keno game, the lottery draws 20 from only 60 numbers. In Canada, Ontario's keno and Quebec's Banco 10-20-70, the lottery draws 20 from 70 numbers. In Michigan's pick-10 Keno, the lottery draws 22 numbers from 80. In Australia's 20-20-80 Keno, the player marks 20 numbers, and 20 are drawn from 80.
Here are some valuable tips that should fatten your bank account. Notice that between 25 and 33 percent of all the winning numbers drawn in keno-type games are numbers that won in the last drawing. Between 44 and 56 percent of all winning numbers, are either repeat hits or numbers that were out only one game. And between 58 and 71 percent of all winners were out TWO GAMES OR LESS! Find the exact percentages for the keno game YOU play below:
Games Out 10-20-80 10-20-70 10-20-60 10-22-80 20-20-80
0 25% 28% 33% 27% 25%
1 44% 50% 56% 48% 44%
2 58% 64% 71% 62% 58%


PLAY ONLY THE HOTTEST NUMBERS
Keep in mind, you need to get only HALF of the 20 numbers drawn to get the 10 numbers required to win the jackpot. Repeat hits AND numbers out ONE game (that is, numbers repeated from the previous drawing, and numbers drawn one game before that) account for about half of all the winning numbers drawn. Two  valuable tools: A Multiple Hit Pattern Chart® will tell you which numbers are most likely to hit two drawings in a row. A Skip and Hit® Chart will tell you which numbers hit most often after skipping just one game.)
BEST TIMING FOR GUARANTEED HOTTEST NUMBERS.
Usually five (or six) of the winning numbers are numbers repeated from the last drawing. For example, in the 10-20-80 game, there are, on average, five numbers repeated from the previous drawing. When you see one or two drawings that have had fewer than five repeat hits, you could expect the next drawing or two to have a higher than an average number of repeat hits.
Consider this a VERY Short Term Bias Tracker", because we are considering only the last two drawingsexpecting to see an immediate Trend Reversal when the Bias shows a below average number of repeat hits. Between nine and eleven of the winning numbers (depending on which keno game it is), are either repeat hits or numbers out just one game. And, between 11 and 14 of the winning numbers drawn are either repeat hits or numbers out one or two games. See the table below for the average number of winning numbers out two games or less to expect for the keno game YOU play. You don't have to play every day. Wait for one or two drawings that have had fewer than 9 winning numbers out two games or less, because invariably the next drawing or two will produce more of those than average, making it easier to win.
AVERAGE NUMBER OF HITS
Games Out 10-20-80 10-20-70 10-20-60 10-22-80 20-20-80
0 5 5.8 6.7 6 5
1 8.8 9.8 11.1 10.4 8.8
2 11.6 12.8 14.1 13.6 11.6


WHEN TO PLAY A LONG SHOT NUMBER.
Since one-quarter to one-third of all keno numbers are drawn each game, you don't see many long skip periods between wins. The longest losing streak for any keno number was 35 games. In the entire 3000+ game history of a 10-20-80 keno, only eight times has a number skipped more than 30 drawings without a win. When you see a number out more than 30 drawings, by all means play it. Probability is on your side. A long shot number in keno is one that has skipped more than 10 games. (In Lotto 6/49, a long shot numbers is one that has been out for 17 games or more.) Numbers out for more than ten games account for only four percent of the winning numbers drawn.
GET THE ODD/EVEN ADVANTAGE.
You should have a relatively equal mix of odd and even numbers. More than half (58%) of all the drawings have a relatively even spread of 10 Odd/10 Even or 9 Odd/ 11 Even or 11 Odd/ 9 Even. There has never been a drawing in which all Odd or all Even numbers occurred. The Odd/ Even Bias Tracker" tells you whether you should play more Odd or more Even numbers.
GET THE HIGH/LOW ADVANTAGE.
In keno, half your numbers should be chosen from the Low Numbers, 1 to 40, and the other half chosen from the High Numbers, 41 to 80. More than half (57 %) of all the drawings have a relatively even spread of 10 Low/10 High or 9 Low/11 High or 11 Low/ 9 High. There has never been a drawing in which all Low or all High numbers occurred. The Low/High Bias Tracker" tells you whether you should play more Low or more High numbers the next drawing.
DO NOT FALL FOR THE LOTTERY'S GIMMICKS.
This tip is for keno players in Ontario, Canada: Do not spend more than one dollar on any one set of numbers. The Lottery encourages keno players to spend up to $10 for one set of numbers. Would you buy ten tickets for the same set of six Lotto numbers? Of course not!!! Do not do the advance playunless you plan to be away from Ontario. Pick your numbers fresh each time. And NEVER BUY QUICK PICKS. Studies have proven you would do much better picking random numbers out of a hat!

          John, Colorado Keno ceased to operate a few years back. Don't know and can't find why they stopped Keno. Here is an announcement at the Colorado Lottery page about keno back in 1991.


          The History of the Colorado Lottery:







          The Colorado Lottery sold its first ticket in January 1983, with Lotto beginning in January 1989, Keno in September 1991, Cash5 in September 1996 and Perfecto Games in April 1998. The Lottery's current product mix includes three on-line games - Lotto, Cash5 and Powerball, along with a mix of Scratch games.

              I enjoy playing Keno and I've noticed often their are a series of numbers that run like....9, 10 or 21, 22 23, or 79, 80.

              The most I've won on the WA. state keno so far is $1000.00 for the 10 spot betting $2.00 so I hope soon it will be time for another good hit.  Best of luck to all, a keno fan.

                  thanks for the info hosni, i play Ontario Keno and i know many times of players that play MORE than $1 per ticket and have HIT.

                   

                  Most of the info Gail Howard says is correct, and i use her software, it's pretty darn good for stats, except for the quirck where after 2850 draws or so it removes the earliest draw and uses the latest, i understand this to be a limitation to the dos program she still uses. Most of what you have said is simple stats, of course on average on a 20/70 keno game there will be 6 repeats, there will be 1/2 even / odd , 1/2 low / high etc.

                  While talking to a local store owner one of his customers hit for $35,000 cnd in ontario keno recently by basically using pencil in hand and studying last 10 draws or so and playing little sets like consequetives like 20,21,30,31,60,61- see gail howards neighbouring pairs- for 7/7 at $5 so $5000 X 5 = $25,000 and also same night 6/6 twice at $5 each so $1000 X 5 X 2 = $10,000 = Total $35,000 and the store owner says he basically always plays $5 to $10 per set.

                  I personally don't play many sets that way, ie usually only $1, but this fellow made out very well.

                   

                  Goodluck  !!

                    Most Kenos are now Quick Draw type games, and playing strategy on these games is pretty much impossible. The only daily keno games offered now is in Washington, Michigan, and New York. Colorado used to offer a 10-20-60 game, but it has been off the market since about 1997.

                      Here was how CO Keno was played (courtesy of archive.org)







                      Keno is an On-Line game with a mid-range top prize, and a larger field of numbers to pick from than either Lotto or Cash 5.



                      Top set prize:      $50,000, higher than the top prize of $20,000 in Cash 5, but lower than the $1 million plus prizes possible in Lotto.



                      Chances to win any prize:      1 in 44



                      Cost to play:      $1 per ticket



                      How Keno Works

                      Keno is played with a 10-20-60 matrix. Players select 10 numbers from a field of 60 possible numbers. Then the Lottery chooses 20 winning numbers at random in a drawing. If a player matches 0, 7, 8, 9, or 10 of the 20 winning numbers, they win a prize.



                      Players may select their own numbers or use the Quick Pick method in which numbers are chosen randomly by the computer.



                      About Keno Drawings

                      Drawings are held in Pueblo six times a week (every day except Sunday or December 25). A Security Investigator, Independent Auditor, and Citizen Witness are present at every drawing to make sure it is conducted properly according to law. All activities that involve the drawing apparatus are video-taped and are part of public record.



                      How prizes are Distributed

                      According to state statute, at least half of the ticket sales must be returned to players in the form of prizes. The Keno game has set prizes that are based on how many numbers players match. All prizes are paid in one lump sum. If there is more than one winner, each winner receives the full amount, unless there are more than 20 top prize winners in a single draw. In that dvent, the winners split a $1 million prize pool equally.



                      Other Ways to Play



                          Advance Play, playing the same set of numbers for up to ten consecutive drawings, is available at any retailer that sells On-Line game tickets.



                          Out-of-state residents can play Keno and win, but cannot play by mail. Postal regulation prohibit the selling of Lottery tickets by mail. Out-of-state residents can, however, claim prizes by mail.



                          Tickets can be purchased as gifts for people under 18 years of age, but not by minors themselves.



                      Keno Prizes and the Odds of Winning

                      Match                       Prize        Odds

                      10 of 20 numbers:   $50,000      1 in 408,074

                      9 of 20 numbers      $1,000       1 in 11,223

                      8 of 20 numbers      $100        1 in 768

                      7 of 20 numbers      $10         1 in 99

                      0 of 20 numbers      Free Lotto, Cash5 or Perfecto ticket      1 in 89



                      Overall odds of winning any prize are 1 in 44.
