Maryland Keno

Keno in Maryland is a game that is played every four minutes, with 20 winning numbers drawn at random from a set of 1 to 80.

You can choose how many numbers you want to play, how much to wager, and whether you want to add the Keno Bonus or Super Bonus to your play. There's even an option to play Packaged Keno To Go (PKTG) for just $0.25 per game.

How to Play

To play Keno, you have to select numbers from 1 to 80. It's up to you how many you pick - it could be just one, or as many as 10. You can select your own or get a Quick Pick. The games are known as 1-Spot (if you play one number), 2-Spot (if you play two numbers), and so on.

Decide how much to play per game and mark the relevant option on your playslip - $1, $2, $3, $4, $5, $10 or $20. The same options are available for choosing the number of consecutive draws you want to play - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10 or 20. The cost per game is the wager amount multiplied by the number of draws.

The final step on your playslip is to select whether you want to add the Bonus option or the Super Bonus. The Bonus doubles the cost of a wager but can increase the value of winnings by up to 10 times. The Super Bonus triples the cost of a wager, but means you can win up to 20 times your wager. With Super Bonus, you are also guaranteed to at least double your payout if you win.

Packaged Keno To Go

Packaged Keno To Go (PKTG) is a way of playing even more draws at a lower cost. You can purchase 20, 40, 60, 80 or 100 games for just $0.25 per game. You can still add the Bonus or Super Bonus with PKTG, but the prizes on offer are lower as you are not wagering a much.

Prizes and Odds

The prizes you can win depend on which game you play, how many numbers you match, and the size of your wager. The tables below show the prize amounts for each game, based on a $1 wager. The payouts will be increased if you wagered more, although there is a limit of $100,000 for any amount. If you played PKTG, the prize values will be decreased proportionally.

Bonus and Super Bonus Odds

The following table shows you the probability of your payout being boosted, if you select the Bonus or Super Bonus option when you play. The odds of any multiplier being drawn in the Bonus are 1 in 2.3, but adding the Super Bonus guarantees that your prize will be multiplied by at least 2x. Remember that playing the Bonus doubles the cost of your wager, while the Super Bonus triples the cost.
