keno prize structure

Keno prize structure

Keno is the Oregon game drawn every four minutes with 56 ways to win and a $30,000 average jackpot! Bulls-Eye, Multiplier, and three prize structures to choose from add to the thrills of this fast-paced game.

A Keno wager costs $1, and you can bet up to $20 per game. The rolling eight-spot jackpot averages $30,000.

Drawings are held every four minutes between 5:00 AM and 2:30 AM PT seven days a week , and the more you match, the more you win.

Keno is played with spots (numbers) from 1 through 80. In each drawing, 20 out of 80 numbers are randomly chosen. The more you match, the more you win. Whether you win and how much depends on how many spots you match.

How to Play

To play Keno, fill in how many spots you’d like to play (1-10) on your play slip. Now select your wager, from $1 to $20.

Next, pick your numbers, or choose Quick Pick to have the numbers auto-generated. The selection generates one set of numbers per game you play.

You can also play your favorite numbers for multiple consecutive games. Just choose the number of draws you want to play, from 1 to 100 – there’s a $100 maximum wager.

Choose the time you want to play with Keno To Go. You can select the time you want your games to start today. If you don’t choose a time, your games start right away.

Choose from Three Prize Structures

The normal Keno prize structure has up to seven prize levels in each game, so there are plenty of ways to win.

But there’s more! The Special Keno option lets you play for bigger top prizes, with fewer smaller prizes, at no extra cost. There’s a prize of up to $1 million on the 10-spot game! Mark Yes on your play slip to select Special Keno, or choose No to play regular Keno.

The third option, Keno Bulls-Eye, offers the chance to play for larger prizes plus more chances to win. Bulls-Eye prizes are added to any Keno prizes. Keep reading for more on Bulls-Eye.

Keno Multiplier

Add Muliplier for the chance to multiply your Keno prize up to 10 times! The Multiplier can be 1x, 2x, 3x, 5x, or 10x. It costs $1 for every $1 Keno wager. Bulls-Eye and Jackpot Bonus prizes aren’t multiplied.

The table below shows how frequently the Keno Multiplier numbers are drawn on average – 2x and 10x are drawn 55% of the time.

Keno Multiplier Frequency
Multiplier Average Percentage Drawn Overall Average Odds*
1x 45% 1 in 2.22
2x 28.3% 1 in 3.53
3x 16% 1 in 6.25
5x 9.7% 1 in 10.31
10x 1% 1 in 100
*Rounded to the nearest hundredth

Bulls-Eye

You can add the Bulls-Eye option for more ways to win plus larger prizes. How does it work? Once the 20 winning Keno numbers are drawn, the Bulls-Eye arrow lands at random on one of those 20 numbers – the Bulls-Eye. If you win a Keno or Special Keno prize, and also match the Bulls-Eye number, you’ll win both the Keno prize and the Bulls-Eye prize! You can add Bulls-Eye to a regular Keno or Special Keno play, and the ticket cost increases $1 for every $1 Keno wager.

Jackpot Bonus

This feature lets you win the extra Jackpot Bonus if you match all the numbers in an 8-spot game. The jackpot keeps rolling over and growing with every draw until it’s won. The Jackpot Bonus is pari-mutuel if there are multiple Jackpot Bonus winners in a game.

Prizes and Odds

Keno offers 56 ways to win cash – match more spots and win more! The tables below show the prize payouts and odds for Keno, Special Keno, and Bulls-Eye according to how many numbers you match in a 1-10 spot game. You can even win a prize by not matching any spots in the 10 spot game! The Keno prizes listed are based on a $1 play. Bulls-Eye prizes listed are based on a $2 play.
