How to Play

To play Keno, there are five steps. Go down your playslip from top to bottom and fill in all the sections, as outlined below:

  • Select how many numbers you want to play. These are known as spots. You can play a minimum of one, up to a maximum of 10.
  • Choose your cost per game. The options are $1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $10 or $20.
  • Specify how many consecutive games you want to play, ranging from just the next one, up to 20 in a row.
  • Pick your numbers between 1 and 80. Alternatively, you can mark the Quick Pick box to let the computer give you a random set.
  • Decide whether to play the Bonus feature. This doubles the cost of playing, but if you win your payout could potentially be multiplied by up to 10 times.

The total price of your ticket will be based on the cost you selected, the number of consecutive games you are playing, and whether you selected the Bonus multiplier or not. The prizes you can win depend on all these factors, as well as how many numbers you chose.

Prizes and Odds of Winning

You win prizes by matching some or all of your numbers to the winning numbers that are selected for the draw(s) you have entered. The tables below show the prizes you can win for each game. The larger prizes are available when you play more spots, as it is harder to match more numbers.

The prizes shown below are based on a $1 play per game. If you've spent more per game, your payout will be higher. However, the maximum you can win without the Bonus multiplier is $100,000.

Bonus Multiplier

If you mark 'Yes' to the Bonus feature, your payout could be increased. A separate Bonus draw takes place alongside each Keno draw, to determine the multiplier that will be applied to prizes. This could be No Bonus Multiplier, 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x or 10x. The Bonus can boost payouts up to a maximum of $1 million, regardless of how much has been wagered. The table below shows the odds of each multiplier being selected.

2x 1 in 2.3
