Online Keno Game
Origins of Keno has a fascinating history, it is believed that its predecessor was the ancient Chinese game in which characters are used instead of numbers (totalling 120). Ancient scrolls, dated 200 BC, tell us about Cheng Lin of the Han dynasty, who invented the game to recoup the cost of the army. Cheng fought for several years and when the citizens refused to subsidize the war, he came up with a game that was not much different from today's keno. This innovation has been a resounding success and quickly spread throughout China. The game brings a large income so that, as legend has it, the Great Wall was built just from the proceeds from keno funds.

From the east game emigrated to America with thousands of Chinese to build railways. Despite the ban, the Chinese are constantly playing keno, and so often that the game was called only as "Chinese Lottery". However, the game did not have much success in America until the late 19th century, when, finally, the characters have not changed the numbers, and the number dropped to number 80. When in 1931, gambling was legalized in Nevada, lotteries were still banned. But keno was not controlled by the state - all that had to do - change the name of "Chinese Lottery" to something else. So the game was renamed the "horse race keno," implying that the number of the horses on which bets are made. Later in Nevada banned racing, and the name of the game was immediately shortened to just "keno". In this form and with the same name, it exists to this day.
