Keno betting systems

Keno betting systemsRandomness is the name of the game when it comes to keno. The sooner a player accepts that the better. With games like keno a player’s best approach to the game is to play for fun. Players who take the game too seriously are bound to leave the table feeling disappointed.

There is no quick and easy way to strike it lucky when playing keno. Having said that it can’t hurt reading up on different betting systems. While these can’t guarantee that a player will win they can teach a player who knows how to control his/ her bankroll how to make the most of each bet. If you’re a beginner and are still learning the inner workings of keno or are an emotional gambler it might be best to avoid betting systems.

Keno is very similar to a lottery style game. It’s just as unpredictable as the lottery. When playing keno players buy their tickets first. Players then pick the numbers they want to bet on by marking the number with an S. Logically the more numbers a player chooses the greater the chances are of winning on one of those numbers. When the keno draw takes place 20 numbers will be randomly selected. Any players who selected one of the winning numbers will then be paid out.

It’s important to have an understanding of how keno works because then it becomes clear just how unlikely it is that a betting system can improve one’s game. The outcome of a keno draw is more about luck than anything else. Players who use betting systems when playing keno really only use them as way to maximize their bet and ensure they can spread their bets out over as many rounds as possible.

One of the most commonly used betting systems is the Martingale system. This is an easy to follow and implement betting system. With this system a player would double the amount being bet following a loss and decrease the amount bet after a win.  The aim of the Martingale system is that a player will have an easy and methodical way to recover any losses.

Let’s say a player starts by betting one dollar and loses. The player will then double the bet and bet two dollars. The player will continue doubling the bet until the player wins. Once the player starts winning the player will then decrease the amount being bet. The idea behind this is that by doing this the player will be able to make a profit and will have the chance to recover any losses.

The biggest drawback with this system is that for it to be truly effective a player needs access to an unlimited bankroll. This makes this particular betting system quite costly and not suitable for players who are playing with a limited bankroll. Players also need to keep in mind that to recover losses takes time. Therefore to truly reap the rewards of the system a player needs access to lots of money as well as unlimited patience.

Another commonly used betting system is known as the reduced betting system. Players who follow this betting system will choose a series of numbers and bet on them over a series of different keno cards. This system increases a player’s chances of winning on one of those numbers because of how one divides one’s bets. With this betting system a player can look forward to a potentially bigger payout as a player isn’t betting simply on numbers on one card.

The way this system works is a player would choose six different numbers and spread them over three keno cards. It’s important for players to keep in mind to spread out the numbers in such a way that each number appears on two tickets. This can be done by ensuring that only four of the six numbers appear on each ticket.

Players who are on the lookout for a keno system should be aware. There are tons of scams available online and it’s easy to fall for a fake system. As a rule of thumb, stay away from any betting systems which promise to make you millions. Don’t fall for it. Always keep in mind that keno is preprogramed to ensure randomness. Systems which promise to help a player win are nothing more than a scam and wise players would stay far away from them. The best is to stick with the basics and learn to effectively control you bankroll.

No betting system is going to guarantee a player a win especially with a game which is as unpredictable as keno. Betting systems may not even increase a player’s chances of winning but they will give a player the tools to maximize bets and make bankroll last for as long as possible.

It’s always a good idea to mix betting systems as there are valuable things a player can draw from the different systems.  But most importantly players need to keep in mind that keno is a random game and therefore no betting system can make one win. It’s also important to choose keno betting systems carefully so as not to get caught out.
