We all know that Video Poker is far more popular than Video Keno in most Casinos, but, according to Casino Player Magazine, the majority of gamers may be playing the wrong game. What it comes down to is a difference in the payoffs. Both games have about the same odds (41,000-1) but the Video Keno payoff is much higher! The standard payoff for Video Poker is a measly 800-for-1, while the standard payoff on a Video Keno machine is a heaping 7000-for-1. Gaming expert David Stratton asks, “Why would you chase an 800-1 jackpot, when you can pursue a 7,000-1 prize with about the same chances of hitting it?” Bigger jackpots mean more money in your pocket!
When choosing a Video Keno machine to play, you should always keep comfort in mind. Since you will be spending many hours at the machine, make sure there is nothing distracting you from your game. You don’t want to feel claustrophobic, out of place, or bothered by the players next to you. And you definitely don’t want to get stuck at a dirty machine! Remember, any and every machine is a potential jackpot, so comfort is far more important than machine location. Once you’ve selected a clean and comfortable machine, the time will fly by, as you make the machine come to you!
