How hard is it to get every number correct on a Keno 10-spot game?

Why do people even play a 10-spot game of Keno?  You have 80 numbers to choose from.  You'll never win!

    Just by picking 10 numbers with 23 numbers to choose from attracts people.

      I've gotten 8 out of 10 and 2 of my friends have also!  People may never win a big jackpot but they still play.  You never know when lady luck will shine down on you

        Odds of slightly less than 9 million to 1 are a whole lot better than hitting the jackpot in most lotteries.....

          The payout for 10 of 10 is $100,000 which is alot less than a jackpot but it's fun just sitting around talking to your friends and playing.

            Has anyone looked to see how to put the best 4 or 5 combos with the most repeat hits worth investing in? If so please print results here. Thanks
