Multi-Card Video Keno

Learn this game and take your shot at multiple jackpots

by David Stratton

When Four Card Keno was introduced it was immediately embraced by veteran keno players, who recognized the obvious advantages of being able to mark up to four different keno tickets in the same game.

In the previous two issues of Strictly Slots, I gave our readers a closer look at video keno, and I explained how this game can be a solid gamble if you approach it the right way. In this third (and final) article of this series, I want to talk about multi-card video keno, which gives you a shot at multiple jackpots.

The introduction of multi-card keno games – Four Card Keno and later 20-Card Keno – revolutionized video keno, much the way Triple Play and Five Play machines revolutionized video poker.

These multi-card games gave the players the option of playing more than one keno ticket, thus expanding their chances of winning. The obvious advantage is that you can cover more numbers than with one card. The disadvantage is that you’re betting on more than one keno card and the costs can mount, especially with 20-Card Keno.

But, more important than simply being able to mark more than one card, multi-card keno games opened up play to strategy; that is, players now undertook choices that they never had before.

For instance, players now had the option of marking “smaller” tickets, such as 5- and 6-spot cards, within or underneath “larger” tickets, such as 9- and 10-spot tickets, thus opening up the possibility of multiple jackpots.

As we examine both Four Card and 20-Card Keno, you’ll see how a proper strategy can lead to some astounding jackpots.

When Four Card Keno was introduced it was immediately embraced by veteran keno players, who recognized the obvious advantages of being able to mark up to four different keno tickets in the same game.

But for me, I saw Four Card Keno as an opportunity to effectively shrink the size of the keno board by marking groups of numbers into distinct regions, zones, patterns or clusters. The reason this was important to me was simple: Numbers don’t land evenly across the 80-number board; instead, they seem to land in groups or clusters, oftentimes just missing the numbers on your keno card.

As a very simple example, let’s say you like to play 10-spot cards on the top two rows. With Four Card Keno, instead of marking just one row of 10 numbers, you could mark both rows, as well as the “cross-over” patterns consisting of the five upper left-hand numbers coupled with the five lower right-hand numbers, and the five lower left-hand numbers coupled with the five upper right-hand numbers (or you could mark the two 5-by-2 boxes on the top two rows).

By marking these additional 10-spot cards, it’s no longer necessary to catch eight, nine or 10 numbers in your row to hit a nice jackpot. You can cash in when only five hit on the top row when they’re coupled with three, four or five numbers on the bottom row.

I soon began marking “tighter” clusters of numbers, that is, tickets in smaller groups. For instance, instead of marking a single 10-spot ticket on a row of 10 numbers, I’d mark four 7-spot cards, or a combination of 7-spot, 8-spot and 9-spot tickets on that same row of 10 numbers.

The reasoning was that, on any given row, it was likely that seven numbers or more will eventually drop into the row, hopefully filling up one or more of your tickets. And since you’re marking smaller tickets, such as a 7-spot, you don’t need eight or nine numbers to land in the row to hit a nice jackpot.

Of course, it was always possible that the numbers would miss your tickets when they did land in your row. But that’s part of playing keno; sometimes, you just have to be lucky.

When 20-card keno arrived in casinos, the game was an instant hit with video keno fanatics. Many players used the additional cards to cover the entire keno board with tickets, oftentimes ensuring that every number drawn would land in at least one of their cards, somewhere on the board.

But for myself, the additional 16 cards (compared to Four Card Keno) allowed me to “load up” on my favorite clusters by marking more and varied tickets, hopefully ensuring better chances of catching multiple jackpots.

Before proceeding, a note about multi-card keno machines: most casinos (but not all) use slightly reduced pay tables for multi-card keno games. Make sure you’re playing a machine that pays very close to the payoffs found on “straight” keno machines.

For instance, most multi-card machines still pay 7000-for-1 for catching 7-of-7 but the payoff for catching 6-of-7 might be reduced to 335-for-1 from 400-for-1. That’s an acceptable cut.

Similarly, a 9-spot game might return 300-for-1 for catching 7-of-9 instead of the standard 335-for-1, but you should still get 4,700-for-1 for catching 8-of-9.

But if you find a machine in which the 7-of-7 jackpot is cut to as low as 3000-for-1, or the 8-of-9 award is chopped to anything less than 4000-for-1, then the machine is not worth playing; find another machine or go to another casino.

Now, as I pointed out earlier, 20-card keno is a way to play clusters, using many more cards, as well as a variety of different cards (such as 5- and 6-spot tickets).

One of my favorite patterns is playing the two right-hand columns (the “9” and “10” columns) on the keno board. Those two columns gave me six distinct patterns of eight numbers worth playing: the two columns, the two 2-by-4 boxes above and below the center line, and the two “cross-over” patterns. Note that each pattern has a “mirror image” of itself (the two columns mirror each other, as do the two boxes, as well as the cross-over pattern).

This concept of mirror patterns is key here because, using the 20 cards, I would bet all eight 7-spot cards in two mirror patterns (utilizing 16 cards), then mark four 8-spot cards in the remaining patterns.

Thus, if 7-of-8 numbers would land in any of the six patterns, I would have hit at least one 7-of-8 jackpot, or a solid 7-spot along with seven 6-of-7 awards.

In practice, this pattern has become one of my favorites – taking an 8-spot pattern, such as a box or column or the outside (and inside) eight numbers of a row, and filling it with eight 7-spot cards.

As noted, hitting seven of the eight numbers pays a solid 7-spot jackpot plus seven 6-of-7 awards, and is nearly double the payoff of hitting 7-out-of-8 numbers. But the real kicker comes if you can get all eight numbers to hit, creating a payoff of eight solid 7-spots! With only one nickel bet per card, the payoff is a healthy $2,800 or so. But if you have four coins bet per card, the payoff is a mind-numbing $11,200!

To see how this cluster of overlapping patterns would look, see the accompanying photograph.

20-Card Keno opened the floodgates for multiple jackpots such as this one. The bottom row features eight 7-spot cards under the outside eight numbers, plus several 7-spots under the inside eight numbers. The result was 10 solid 7-spots that paid $2826.80 with just 4 cents bet per card!

As noted, multi-card games expand the scope of your keno patterns, and they let you capitalize on smaller jackpots when you insert smaller tickets “underneath” cards such as 7-, 8-, or 9-spot cards.

For instance, instead of marking all 7-spot tickets (as in the above example) under a given set of numbers, you could mark a combination of 5-, 6- and 7-spot tickets. This way, you actually have a chance of winning something when only five and six numbers land in your pattern.

See the second photograph for an example of how multiple jackpots can mount when several tickets are marked within a pattern.

In the 7 column I marked nine 5-spots, six 6-spots and four 7-spots (they all hit when the column filled in). The last card was a 10-spot card that wasn’t part of the winning column.

Let me point out that, in the last example, getting all eight numbers to fill the column is rare, though not impossible. Most of the time you will be lucky to get six numbers or even seven numbers, but because you have 5-spot and 6-spot tickets, there’s plenty of opportunity for nice jackpots.

Keno patterns

1. Keno numbers. How to find the pattern?

You have to know that Keno game uses an RNG system when extracts the numbers; this means is extracting random numbers, without any connection with previous or next extractions. Yet, as in any game, there are different patterns which can be observed after a long game monitoring. The keno algorithm creates some patterns to be followed by gamblers, which advantages are offered to those players who know how to identify them. If a gambler is able to understand the way in which program is generating those random numbers, then he can take advantage of the game and will easily win at keno. These patterns can be found only after careful study of various game sessions and they’re called in gambling terms -“pattern numbers”. These could be “hot” and “cold” numbers, mostly and can be found in the database of some casinos or in gambler archives. Keno statistics show that often between 5 and 8 numbers from the previous extraction are repeated.

2. Selecting Keno Patterns

Selecting patterns in a game are the most intriguing action, as request lots of patience and study. Choose consecutive numbers when you’re playing keno or bet on “hot” and “cold” numbers. Keno patterns involve mostly the way in which numbers extracted in different sessions and places are repeated. Keep looking for numbers repeated over and over, as these numbers offer a bigger chance of winning. Some players use their favorite numbers to bet, as family’s birth dates, ages or significant dates in their lives.

3. 4 card keno patterns

For the 4 card keno, the gambler will choose between 2 to 10 numbers, but playing on 4 tables at the same time. Playing 4 cards Keno is much better as your winning chances are higher; you can “hit” seven spots on half of these cards (2/4), which will offer you a pretty good jackpot. This is the pattern of winning at 4 card Keno: playing of various combinations of numbers, “reduced” from a bigger number. Actually is about overlapping numbers on the cards. Splitting the numbers among those 4 cards will offer a better chance of winning. Choose numbers in a quick succession like 20, 21, 22, 23; a total of: 26, 28 and a total of: 36, 37. It will be played at 3/3 (3 numbers of 3) with big chances to get out a single number.

4. 20 card keno patterns

Basically, the 20 card Keno is similar with the 4 card Keno, the only difference is related to the number of numbers played. Play up to 20 numbers on your cards, deduct combinations of number, and play on more than 3 spots. Actually, the biggest winner is starting with 5 spots, but this will make difficult the way in which the numbers are distributed. Working with 20 numbers split within 20 cards it is a little bit difficult, but as long as your winning chances have a better way of improvement, why not? After all, this is the best way of enjoying Keno! Share on three simple numbers vary between 63 and 70 (or others, depending on previous extractions). Find the combination of numbers that was repeated more often in the last 10-20 draw, then play 5 or 10 consecutive draws with a 4/6, 5/8, 6/10, but do not climb more than 6 / x (the more likely the smaller amount), i.e. calculating the minimum rate to win some (always keep you win).

5. Multi card keno patterns

As long as you’re playing with multiple cards, your chances if winning are balanced; even the odds are reduced, yet you will be able to open the path towards greater winnings. Choose to split the keno table into imaginary pieces to have a better view over it. Do whatever is necessary to keep your attention focused on all cards. These are the 5 hot numbers (often drawn): 23, 34, 72, 1 and 4.

6. Popular keno patterns

Keno gamblers really enjoy playing with various strategies or just following classic and popular patterns of the game. Either they’re playing using dates related to their families, either they’re using statistics and databases, observations by determining which numbers were often extracted, what is important in this game is to have fun. Focusing on the winning only, will have a negative result in this game. Just to combine fun and gambling, close your eyes and play with numbers randomly chosen.

7. Methods and patterns in keno

In a keno game, there is only one truth: the biggest prize is won with the highest number of picked numbers. In this case, a total of 20 numbers (which have been established that is impossible). From 6 to 10 picked numbers, any player has the opportunity to win at keno; up to 15 numbers can hit the jackpot. All keno gamblers (bingo and lottery too) have their own “lucky” numbers, on which they often play. You have to bet on big amounts if you want to win big rewards; playing on lower values will reward you with smaller gains. Here are according to statistics the hottest numbers in keno: 61, 66, 67, 74, 3, 16, 44, 58 and 78.

8. Keno winning patterns

The game of keno is based on a high dose of unpredictability, as it is the result of an RNG; random numbers are hard to be predicted, especially they’re the result of computer choice. Some players like to observe, determine and play with those numbers called “hot” numbers while others prefer to use complicated software programs, which they like to call “computer predictors”.

9. Lucky keno patterns

In a Las Vegas @#Casino#@, a player hit the biggest keno jackpot ever using the age of his wife, children, and his own birth date. The total value of the prize was $6.4 million and at the press conference, the winner said did not use any strategy, juts followed his favorite numbers, which in this case was “keno lucky numbers”.

10. Most common keno patterns

As it might see, there are different types of patterns used by the keno gamblers when they’re betting. When they’re playing using various dates related to their families, they should replace date of birth with the year of birth, as this offer a better option (the date of birth is only up to 31). Or can play using other dates related to themselves or their families as driver license number, passport dates, address’s numbers, etc.

11. Best keno patterns to play

The best way to win at Keno is by playing using verified numbers, as “hot” numbers. Or just play with the dates you like or use every time. Also, a better option is to use computer algorithm, which is able to make proper calculations and offer an increased chance of hitting big prizes. You have to figure out which is the best option for in the Keno game and used on a long time run. And do not forget to have fun, as Keno is before all, a game made to offer relaxation. Play on keno using these numbers, as they’re among the best: 61, 66, 67, 74, 3, 16, 44, 58 and 78. As long as you will follow these keno patterns, your chances of winning will be at the highest rate.
