California has Keno,one drawing every 5 minutes. I once hit  6 numbers  and it was only worth $40. Personally, I think it's a big waste of time. Kind of like scratch off tickets.

    $40 every five minutes doesn't sound that bad, though I'll agree it sounds time consuming. 

    Probably the scratchers actually do take more time.  I don't know how much a person could make on that.... might scratch what?  A hundred tickets in 5 minutes?  Maybe every hundred or so tickets has a winner of some sort, probably most for a buck.

    A 12 hour day of scratching those things probably wouldn't net more than a few hundred bucks for 11,000 bucks worth of tickets.

    But it would pass the time, as you've indicated.  Maybe that would be some project for a big jackpot winner, buying rolls of tickets and scratching them dawn until dusk to keep himself from doing anything stupid with the jackpot money.

     

    Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.

    It's about number behavior.

    Egos don't count.

      You're funny,Rip Snorter! I just meant that scratch off tickets were a big waste of money too,but you took it further. Cute.LOL I'll say this. I did know someone who bought a whole roll of scratchoffs and they lost money,big surprise! It says right on the back of the ticket that your chances of a CASH prize is only about 1 in 5 so that's a whole lotta losers in between. I used to work in a liquor store selling lotto tickets and this lady came in with $1500 once and bought all quick picks. SHE only got a few 3 spot winners. Just goes to show,quantity isn't quality. Pays to have some sort of system no matter what it is! Take Care.

        California has KENO also. The interesting thing is that the payoff schedules are half the amounts paid in Las Vegas.

        You are a slave to the choices you have made.  jk

          All of CA's Keno payouts, like the rest of their games, is mandated by state law to be pari-mutuel.

          Although no government-run game is going to have a payout percentage as high as would be found in casinos the payout percentages in those games generally runs a few percentage points higher than in their lottery games.
