Would play Keno if it were ball drawn every 15 minutes instead of computer drawn every 4 minutes?

I was considering ways Keno could be converted to a ball drawn game. Any ideas?

    Keno is a ball-drawn game in casinos with live keno in most instances. Games are usually drawn every five minutes or so. And most of them have video screens located throughout the casino that repeat the drawn numbers. It's not impossible.

    One problem in a game of this sort owned by a government entity may occur with the necessary changing of drawing machines and ball sets.

    Another problem can occur with the posting of the numbers - if the person posting the results of the draw makes a mistake, how would it be corrected in time?

      It's ball-drawn in Nebraska, too, in at least four different places I know of, I am sure there are more.

       

      The usual 80/20 game.

       

      They draw here about 150 games a day.

        guesser -

        I didn't know the games were ball-drawn but cities exceeding a certain population are permitted to offer Keno within their municipalities. Big Red is the game operator in Omaha and possibly others. Other cities I know of that offer Keno are Lincoln and Bellevue, an Omaha suburb.

            i don't know if a ball drwn keno can be feasible..Don't know how the machine will work...It will have to be one heck of a machine..The flaw with it is that there will be lots of numbers that will repeat very often and some numbers that will repeat from draw to draw even with pre-testing...
