Simple Keno Tips

And if you’re ever going to play in a land-based casino someday, it’s nice to understand the rules before playing it among other people.

Tip #3: Learn the Game through Online Keno

Tip #2: Play Video or Online Keno

Tip #1: Don’t select Too Many Numbers. However, don’t let lucky numbers fool you into thinking that you can over-bet and exceed your bankroll limit. On average, you’ll be facing a 5-10% house edge with video and online keno games.

As many keno players know, there’s not a lot of strategy to this game. But you don’t have to play games this bad because online and video keno both feature reasonable house advantages. But there are some simple tips that you can follow to make keno games a little easier. So even if you love live keno action, consider mixing the video machines and online casinos into your routine as well.

Part of the fun of playing keno is that you can use lucky numbers to try and swing luck in your favor. All keno numbers have the same chance of coming up; so keep this in mind when you play the game.

Keno is not a hard game to learn, however, you might still want to start out with the online version. Sure some players believe that their lucky numbers will bring more winnings, but the truth is that keno strategy isn’t anywhere near as complex as blackjack, video poker or Texas Hold’em. In fact, some land-based casinos feature keno house edges as high as 30-40%. However, you also have to consider that your chances of winning big drop tremendously. And the end result is that you’ll experience far more variance while you wait for these big wins, which may never come at all.

Tip #4: Don’t over-bet based on Lucky Numbers

You might have heard that keno has one of the worst house edges in the casino. First off, you can play free online keno and familiarize yourself with how everything works. That said, let’s look at some of these keno tips below.

Most keno games allow you to select up to 10 numbers (sometimes more), and the more numbers you pick, the larger the top prize you can win

Key Derby Candidates Offer Betting Value Based on Latest Odds

Those odds may drop on Derby day, largely because three-time Kentucky Derby winner Calvin Borel will be in the irons.

Union Rags has held the favorites mantle since his scintillating win in the Grade 1 Fountain of Youth at Gulfstream Park at the end of February. The big gray won the Grade 3 Gotham Stakes at Aqueduct in his previous start and will use the Grade 1 Blue Grass Stakes at Keeneland as his final Kentucky Derby tuneup on April 14.


Others haven’t been as quick to excuse the performance and are looking elsewhere for the Kentucky Derby winner. Currently there are several solid options available at juicy odds.

An ardent fan of horse racing for years, I am extremely passionate about writing articles on adventurous topics on the lines of new developments in sports, online games as well as other fields. Gemologist was extremely impressive winning the Wood and if he can run back to that race, 7-to-1 in the Kentucky Derby would be a gift.

Author’s Bio: 

How about 14-to-1 on the winner of the West Coast’s most important Kentucky Derby prep race? That’s the price currently on offer for I’ll Have Another, the game winner of the Santa Anita Derby over Creative Cause. To know more about horse racing games online and related information log on to

Speaking of Creative Cause, he remains slightly favored over I’ll Have Another, despite just being beaten by that one in the Santa Anita Derby. Alpha is proving to be a consistently hard-trier, as evidenced by his wins in the Count Fleet Stakes and Withers Stakes earlier this winter and his effort in the Wood. Since becoming the first jockey to ever win three Kentucky Derby’s in a four-year span, Borel’s horses have been heavily overbet and Take Charge Indy doesn’t figure to be any different.

Also at 12-to-1 in the Kentucky Derby odds is Alpha, who was a solid second to Gemologist in the Wood Memorial Stakes. The son of Giant’s Causeway raced without his usual blinkers in the Santa Anita Derby, but is expected to have them back on for the Kentucky Derby.

Gemologist, the undefeated winner of the Wood Memorial from the powerful Todd Pletcher barn, is offering good value at 7-to-1 in the 2012 Kentucky Derby odds. He ran third in the Florida Derby, but many bettors have excused the performance because Union Rags received a questionable ride from jockey Julien Leparoux and encountered traffic problems.

What about 15-to-1 on the Grade 1 Florida Derby winner? That’s what you’ll currently get if you back Take Charge Indy, the front-running victor of Gulfstream Park’s major Kentucky Derby prep race.

An analysis of the current 2012 Kentucky Derby odds shows bettors are expecting another wide-open race this year–with perhaps one notable exception.

Hansen, last year’s champion 2-year-old, is listed at 10-to-1 in the Kentucky Derby odds. Creative Cause is listed at 12-to-1. You can find articles regarding Horse racing industries and interesting facts about the understanding of Kentucky Derby. Alpha stretched Gemologist every step in the Wood, but unfortunately it looked like he was never going to get by the winner no matter how far they ran. Union Rags, despite getting upended in the Florida Derby in his final Kentucky Derby prep, remains the solid 7-to-2 favorite in the latest Kentucky Derby odds coming out of Las Vegas – Transcripts

A Sure Bet to Fix Sport | Chris Eaton

The leaders of sport seem ready for this conversation. Money bet with a local, illegal bookie can find its way to funding far more dangerous activities. First, governments worldwide need to legalize sports betting, or at the very least, bring illegal gambling out of the shadows so it can be kept from influencing the outcomes of sporting events.

Second, governments need to strongly supervise and regulate betting within their borders — as well as work together across those borders to ensure that betting operators are in full compliance of all reporting regulations so potentially corrupting wagers can be tracked and monitored.

A bet on a strong international regulatory system for legalized betting is guaranteed to ensure the integrity, transparency, and fairness of sport. Black market gambling syndicates and operators are often controlled by organized crime. Point shaving and match fixing are just the tip of the iceberg. As the New York Times would report, “The tournament’s games were played in near-empty stadiums. Meanwhile, total wagers on the Kentucky Derby reached 194.3 million dollars, representing a 4 percent increase from last year. Supreme Court justice Louis Brandeis once said that, “Sunlight is the best disinfectant.” Although he wasn’t talking about transnational sports betting, his argument surely applies.

And third, governments must deploy law-enforcement and regulators in preemptive, international investigations to eliminate illegal betting on the global level.

But that’s not even the most brazen scheme that syndicate pulled off. But while, organizations like the ICSS, as well as leagues, teams, and businesses all have a big part to play, the real onus is on governments to step up and maintain the integrity of sports.

Floyd Mayweather and American Pharoah were not the only big winners on Saturday.

In 2011, a gambling syndicate operating out of Southeast Asia invited national teams from Estonia, Bulgaria, Bolivia and Latvia to participate in a soccer tournament. Like all forms of prohibition, a total ban on sports betting would only drive it underground and make monitoring and policing it far more difficult.

The reason is simple — illegal sports betting often leads to corruption. Yet they attracted millions of dollars in bets on the Asian market. . According to research conducted by The Sorbonne, and my organization, the International Center for Sport Security, as much as $140 billion annually is laundered through illegal sports betting. In that way, illegal sports betting undercuts the foundation of integrity, fairness, clean competition, and uncertain outcomes — the very reasons we love sports. Nevada bookmakers are estimating that nearly $80 million was wagered on the Mayweather/Pacquiao fight — making it the most bet on prizefight in history by a wide margin. Less than six months ago, NBA commissioner Adam Silver came out in support of legalized sports betting, and many executives and owners have followed suit. And none of that is, in and of itself, is an issue. Every race, fight, game, and match becomes a market to be potentially manipulated. However, after the match was over, and the winnings collected, it was revealed that the gamblers had sent a fake Togolese team to the pitch, and pocketed millions off the fixed match in the process. That’s the only sure winner.

Except in one particular case.

Saturday was a great night for sports bettors, but more importantly, it was a perfect example of how the international community should treat sports betting — licensed, legitimate and legal.

That’s why my colleagues and I at the International Center for Sport Security are kick starting a new conversation about sports betting — how to make it more transparent, and how to keep it from eroding the integrity of sport.

Chris Eaton is the Executive Director of Sport Integrity at the International Centre for Sport Security

But illegal sports betting should not just be concerning to law enforcement officials–it should be on the mind of every sports fan.

This weekend, as the other 17 horses crossed the finish line behind American Pharoah, and as the judges read their unanimous decision after 12 grueling rounds at the MGM Grand, millions of bettors were reminded of the truism that there is no such thing as a sure bet.

But unfortunately, this system is the exception, not the rule.

To be clear, stories like these are not to suggest that the Mayweather/Pacquiao bout or the Kentucky Derby were corrupted in any way. That’s around EUR1.4 billion every day. A transparent, strictly monitored, well-regulated betting economy poses little threat to the integrity of sport. However, our current system is the opposite: opaque, ignored, and far from well-regulated.

The total hauls for this weekend’s marquee events are impressive, but they are dwarfed by the estimated size of the sports betting that takes place around the world–an estimated EUR200-500 billion. They were not televised.

In fact, the global sports betting economy is four times larger than the sports economy itself. The Independent reported that in 2010, the group arranged for an international friendly soccer match between the national teams of Bahrain and Togo.

Internationally, it is estimated that 80 percent of all sports bets are made illegally, and that’s a serious problem. In fact, stewards of American horse racing in particular have been quite successful in cleaning up and regulating the sport.

Now, there’s one idea that’s conspicuously absent from this list: an outright prohibition of sports betting — and that’s for good reason. All seven goals were scored on penalty kicks — all awarded by referees the syndicate had chosen and flown in.”

Make no mistake, illegal betting is a criminal enterprise
