It saids if you Match 0 , you get 1$ instant game?  LIke, if i didn't match any, i get a free scratcher?  How about if i match below 6 numbers? I don't get it.

    It's about odds. You are less likely to get 0 numbers than getting 4 numbers, hence 0 numbers gets a prize (albeit a sucky one, MI has the worst $1 tickets by far).

      zero numbers get you a free ticket

      having 1-2-3-4-5 numbers gets you nothing!

      they don't have a prize for matching 1 of 22.... 2 of 22... 3 of 22... 4 of 22... 5 of 22]

              So MI Keno pays out 47%? MI used to have a 45% payout cap.

                I think Keno is Michigan's least popular game.

                  The reason their daily Keno game is not as popular is that it is drawn only once a day, as opposed to their Culb Keno, and other states' Keno games being drawn every 4-5 minutes.  They need to get rid of it.

                  I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                    First, they do not make you take a scratch ticket. They will give you your dollar back.

                     

                    As for getting rid of Daily Keno because it is not popular that is a really stupid idea.  I play it all the time and Frequently win with multiple tickets.  If people understood what a good game the Michigan Keno is they would not play scratchers.  I have only won $100 on a scratch ticket once and the odds of that were 10,000 to 1.  That was over 20 years ago.

                    Within the last week I hit Daily Keno for $175 because I had 7 tickets for the same drawing that won $25 each.  I bought 7 tickets with the same numbers for the same draw because of the ability to win up to $1,000,000 after state and fed taxes in Michigan (if you buy a $10 scratcher the most you can win in Mich is $466,000 after taxes--compare $10 scratcher prizes to 7 times each daily Keno prize level!) 

                     Previously I have hit more than once at all levels from $1 to $250!  I have yet to hit at 2500 and 250000 but I saw on the Mich website that someone in Ypsilanti(South Eastern Lower Peninsula) hit 250,000 3 times on the same draw(all three tickets were listed at same store) The 3 tickets would give an after tax JP of about $458,000.

                    What Michigan needs to do is get rid of scratch tickets entirely and make people play the daily Keno.

                     

                    I would rather play 7 kenos once a week than $1 scratcher once a day 

                    Look at what a terrible deal scratchers really are!

                      I wasn't saying that it was not popular.  I was saying that it was not as popular as the other game.  Let's say that people have the choice of playing game A over game B, and game A is more popular.  They are more likely to conform to the others and play game A.  What people are not considering is that all games compete against all other games.  Therefore all games in one state are competing against the other games that the state offers, and if players are puting more money on Club Keno than the daily Keno, then perhaps Michigan should get rid of the daily Keno drawings.
