The payouts in the game of Keno will be based on how many numbers that the player picks and then how many numbers hit and then multiplied by the proportion of the original bet of the player to the base rate of the Keno pay-table. Generally, the more numbers that you choose when playing Keno and the more numbers that you hit the bigger the payout will be, even though it is the case that some Keno pay-tables will pay out for hitting fewer spots. For instance, it is common for casinos to pay out $500 and sometimes even $1,000 for hitting 0 numbers on a 20 number ticket, by wagering only $5. The payouts will be for a wide range depending on the casino that you play Keno at or the website you play Keno on.

Most casinos will allow for pay table bets that are between 1 and 20 numbers. However there are some casinos that will limit your choice to only 1 to 10, 12 and 15 numbers, or spots, which are what Keno players call the numbers that are picked.

The chances of hitting on 20 numbers on a 20 spot ticket is about 1 in 3.5 quintillion. As you can see the chances are not very good, to say the least. Even though it is the case that it is pretty much impossible to hit all 20 numbers on a 20 spot ticket a Keno player usually will get paid for hitting catches of 0,1,2,3 and 7 through 19 out of 20 numbers with the 17 to 19 catches paying the same exact amount as the 20 hit ticket. Some other catches on a Keno ticket with 20 spots having high catch odds are a real possibility. Here are some Keno odds and the chances of hitting on a certain amount of numbers with their corresponding percentages.
