There are some very basic things that remain the same, whether you’re playing keno in the brick and mortar environment or over the internet. There are still eighty numbers on the virtual “card.” You are picking up to fifteen numbers as your own. The objective of the game is essentially the same – to match the numbers you selected with the numbers that are drawn. Payouts may differ, according to the particular online casino, but they’re really not a whole lot different. And success is dictated by very little other than luck.
There is a tremendous difference, however, as far as the convenience factor is concerned. One thing that distinguishes online keno is that you never have to leave your house to play. Of course, that’s the case with all casino games in their online form, something which goes without saying.
One of the big pluses about online keno is that you can control your own atmosphere. Some people get distracted by all the bells and whistles and sounds in the so-called “real” casino, where people can come up to you in the middle of your “concentration” to distract what you’re doing. Online, there is nothing going on around you if you don’t want it. By the same token, if you’d like, at some online casinos you can create an atmosphere with music, chat, sound effects, crowd noise – whatever. So you have the ability to enhance your own casino experience.
In dealing with the electronic element more than the human element, you won’t find any keno runners online either. Of course, you won’t need them. Everything is right there at your fingertips. But there will be no filling out of keno tickets between bites of that Reuben sandwich in the coffee shop. And there won’t necessarily be anyone to complain to between games when you’re losing, unless you have a very patient and understanding spouse.
So go for it!
