Keno in US

By 1963, the United States government decided to tax the proceeds of horse track racing, including revenue earned from Keno Horse Racing. At this point the casinos in Nevada dropped the Horse Race part of the game’s name and just called it keno. Until 1989, nobody was allowed to win more than $50,000 playing keno in Nevada but since then the amount of the jackpots have zoomed sky high.

Since then keno has also become a popular game on the Internet. Lottery versions of keno are also very common around the world. These lottery style games are also used by governments to raise money for all kinds of civic, military and charitable purposes. These games are offered daily or weekly and the winning numbers are usually published in the newspaper or announced on the radio and television.
