Why keno is popular?
The City Council of Friend decided to listen to demand of locals as they had been demanding Keno for a long time and its popularity has been growing due to recent jackpot prizes to people from humble backgrounds across the nation. Keno tournaments are held across casinos in the nation at different times of the year to enable more people to win money and bring happiness into their lives. The game is pretty simple as players have to only select 20 numbers which they consider lucky. If it matches with numbers in the automatic balls draw which happens at the keno booth then the person is given the prize.
Several people within the USA have been lucky to win the Keno million and within October 2014 itself there were three winners leading to people buying these tickets with growing frenzy to their luck. While Reljko Ranogajec of Australia became something of a celebrity with his wins at Keno he is also a blackjack player which brings down his celebrity status before simple pensioner like Kenedi, a migrant from Macedonia who is the latest winner of Keno’s 2 million jackpot at Melbourne. To make it attractive to players in some locations the Keno management has reduced the odds to 10 spot, 9 spot and 8 spot game wherein players with first matching 8, 9 and 10 numbers which are picked out of the automatic ball draw win varied amounts.
