Hello. I was was wondering if anyone could offer help pickig keno numbers. Here in Mass its 20 numbers out of 80 and you can pick up to 12. Is it better to pick higher numbers? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Generally they recommend pick hot numbers, for example the most active numbers drawn in the last 7 draws or in the two last draws.

Get statistics for the keno you use in all forms. State Keno lotteries are usually drawn 1 or 2 times a day and are easier to keep statistics on.

Other ways of picking KENO numbers:

Here are column and row statistics for Norwegian keno as an example:

 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 2.6 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 2.4 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 3.5 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 2.8 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 2.9 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 60 2.3 61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 3.5 2.6 2.7 1.8 1.7 1.7 1.8 2.1 2.3 1.7 1.6

From the end column and end row you can see average numbers drawn in either column or row. Perhaps it's possible to wheel column two which got 2.7 in average with a 3/7 wheel. 3 is the amount of numbers in each line, 7 is the wheel size.

A simple 2 if 3/7 wheel in 4 combinations:

1, 2, 3
4, 5, 6
1, 2, 7
3, 5, 7

You replace the numbers in the wheel with the numbers you want to use on Keno,  line one: 1, 2, 3 becomes 2, 12, 22 and so on.

Iif the prizes are high enough you might want to use a full wheel with 35 combinations.

thank you. That seems to help alot! Ive been getting so close and it is frusterating being off by one number. I hate losing money so I am trying to play smarter rather than just picking silly, random numbers and losing all the time.

 Top of the Morning Greeting  Mr/Ms Lynch,Sure you wanted to know how to get the edge. Here's one possible out of the box approachNow would you be playing live casino, Video Keno  or State opertated keno? Go to the keno supervisor and request  a frequency distribution report for each number that has come up over the last several thousand trials, since the balls were changed last. If you get the report, run standard deviation testing on the number of times that each ball has hit. If one of the balls has hit more than four standard deviations then there's a chance that the ball is defective and rising more than it should. Notice I did not say three standard deviations. This is because a three standard deviation number may not be enough to even break even in Keno. This might give you one ball on which to bet if you were lucky enough to find such a machine. Also look for the same type of deviation in numbers that don't appear - a ball can be off in a ball draw because it may be overweight. Good luck EddessaKnight

How can you say that? A stdev is nothing but a calculated value, there is not one, two or three stdev's.
