Picking random numbers and hoping to win millions of dollars is the draw of the lottery in most major states. But not only do state lotteries draw crowds, they spawn other interesting games, like Keno. This game of picking numbers allows you to pick several numbers and if you get a set of them correct, you can win upwards of 7 figures in many instances. The odds of winning aren’t very high and most people assume the game is a game of sole chance. Not true. If you know how to play Keno correctly, you can drastically increase your odds of winning. The following is a look at 3 necessary tips that will help you turn the odds of winning into a percentage possibility.
Surface area strategy – Look at the Keno table layout and choose numbers that are in the center of the card. It is easiest to spot numbers because they areumbo. Numbers 8,9, and 0 almost always appear together on the Keno card and as a result, a number of people tend to “play” these numbers. This is not at all surprising, since the chances of hitting a number on the center of the card are quite high. Play each number individually and do not play consecutive numbers. hitting the number you picked in consecutive order, will only cost you more money spent than the previous round.
ashore strategy – There are certain numbers that seem to be picked more often than others. They are the ones that people tend to play. These numbers will always make up a percentage of the numbers actually picked. The problem is that you can not predict when these numbers will be picked so it is best to simply play them for now and maybe later on, they will not be as likely to be selected. To find out when the best time to play these numbers is, look at the amount of players playing the numbers on the screen and also look at the amount of numbers being called in each round. The fewer numbers called in each round, the better. The Ashore strategy works as follows, the numbers picked in the numbered boxes on the screen are then analyzed to check if it is a profitable number to play. A “hold” value is kept if it is a profitable number, but it means that the number will not be played again. The best strategy when figuring out when a number will be selected is by tracking the numbers that have been called, the amount of money in the pot, and the number of players left in the game. There are several factors that determine when a card will be selected, some more important than others, but it all starts the same. First, look at the amount of money in the pot. The earlier that a big number is called, the more money is in the pot, and the later the number is called the later the money in the pot. With no one really playing, no big numbers are called, which means there is no really a lot of money in the pot. Therefore, traditionally, it is wise to play any big number, like 25, 36 or 47. However, today, with everyone being a bit more responsible, people tend to pace themselves a bit and play slightly slower, so a lot of people play a pair of numbers, like 24 and 54. This means that you will have a better chance of winning, since more people are paying attention. The other card, say 16, could be played in a different manner. With more people there are more chances of a two pair or a three of a kind. Therefore, 16 is a great card to play, although the money is not high, since in most cases, two pairs will win.
The safest two hands to play are the ones that go in straight. These hands are preferable over three of a kind, since, when finished, the payoff is the highest, except for four of a kind. The safest four of a kind is four of the same number, e.g. four 8’s. This is even safer, since the odds of getting a four of the same number are about 5 to 1, making it the second easiest hand to win. Besides, if ever you loose, you just lose your money to come back later and try again.
Always check the numbers before you go into the game and see the layout. It is a good idea to leave your credit cards behind when going to the casinos as most of the casinos will not allow them to play with your money. This will also protect you in case you do not have enough money to cover the amount you have to pay to play.
If you lose, the next step for most is to go to the bar and order another round or a drink. In games like Black Jack or AfaPoker, you know that you are already beat so you just want to die with your pride not your money. But when you will play sneaky moon, you want to live and not die.
