"Ten-OH!" is a Keno game and only the hits with odds of 1:19 or better pay.  The odds for all the possible 1,646,492,110,120 hits  from 10 of 20 of 80 numbers are as follows.

 

 MATCHCOMBOS OF 10 FROM 20of80 NUMBERS   ODDS 
 10 184756 1 : 8911711
 9 10077600  1 : 163381
 8 222966900 1 : 7384
 7 2652734400  1 : 621
 6 18900732600 1 : 87
 5 84675282048 1 : 19
 4 242559401700 1 : 7
 3 440275888800  1 : 4
 2 486137960550 1 : 3
 1 295662853200 1 : 6
 0 75394027566  1 : 22

In casino Keno a dollar 10-spot pays between $40,000 and $100,000 for matching 10 numbers. Ohio's match 6, 7, and 8 numbers payoffs are much smaller than what the casinos offer, but the $500,000 jackpot and $3 for matching zero offset that.

This game is different than any other online game, has $1 tickets, and will be played twice a day so there is a good chance this game will get quite a few players.

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but in casino keno it's you to you to play anything from a one-spot to a fifteen-spot, depending on what kind of prize you're after. ($$$$$)

      But in lottery Keno you have to play a ten-spot, no? 

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        I've never been to a casino, the only gambling I've ever done is playing the local lotteries and PowerBall.  I've read some of the rules for the on-line casinos and they have some rules like that for their Keno games.

          Okay, if there is such a thing as Lottery income, does that mean if I stop playing I can collect unemployment compensation?  I'd probably be better off.

            It's a 10 out of 20 out of 80 game and there are no other bets. It would be like playing a 10-spot in casino Keno.

              Thanks Stack47

              I guess if you're forced to play a 10-spot it should be called 10-Spot Keno or something.

              The 20 out of 80 is Keno but having to play a 10 spot to a Keno player would be like having to play 5 card draw poker- but you can't draw!

              (Oh wait, that's kind of like Caribbean stud!)

                (Oh wait, that's kind of like Caribbean stud!) 

                Is a game with 20 out of 100 when the player is forced to play a 50-spot be called Keno?

                Lotomania in Brazil, it is a R$1 game that a person need to mark half of the numbers on the playslip card.

                20 numbers 1/11.372.635

                19 numbers 1/352.551

                18 numbers 1/24.235

                17 numbers 1/2.776

                16 numbers 1/472

                00 numbers 1/11.372.635

                 

                There is a option to mirror the play card, for R$2 a person will play all the 100 numbers into the card (for all 20 hits and 0 hits) making two bets on the ticket. 

                 

                In my mind it is a Keno game, what do you think?

                Only some people that would like Sport addictives will receive a "incoming" from the Caixa Econômica Federal for playing games. Like in the last games ...

                  What's about a game with 15 out of 15 out of 25?

                  With no other bets? Is this still considered a "Keno like" game?

                   

                  Lotofácil is a 15 out of 25 game, each ticket will cost R$1.00.

                  Odds:

                  11 numbers 1/11

                  12 numbers 1/59

                  13 numbers 1/691

                  14 numbers 1/21.791

                  15 numbers 1/3.268.760

                  Prizes are a fixed amount for 11,12 or 13 hits.

                  11 hits will return R$2.00.12 hits will return R$4.00.13 hits will return R$10.00.

                  Top prize (15 hits) is near R$ "1.000.000.00" for the winner(s) ... Well, sometimes much less since the Jackpot is equally divided for each winner.

                    If I wanted to get wild and crazy and play a 15-spot keno ticket, I would go to the Orleans where I could get $5 for hitting 7 numbers, $25 for 8, $150 for 9, $1000 for 10, $5000 for 11, $25,000 for 12, $100,000 for 13, $250,000 for 14, and $500,000 for all 15. And it would only cost me a buck.

                    Drawing 25 numbers out of 80 instead of 20 lowers the odds, but not low enough where I would be happy winning 4 bucks hitting 12 numbers when I could get 25 grand the traditional way.

                      Nobody in their right mind is going to post their lottery income here.

                      Lol. Agreed.

                        My lottery income is to the negative , as I'm sure most of our LP members will be.
