Keno by TvBet
This page describes the keno game offered by TvBet, a provider of live dealer games to Internet casinos. The reason I created a special page for their keno game, when I already have a page on keno, is they added quite a few side bets.
As in standard keno, 20 balls will be drawn, without replacement, from a hopper containing balls numbered 1 to 80. Depending on the bet the player makes, he may be asked to picks his own numbers before the draw. TvBet has one game every three minutes.
The pays listed on this page are those offered live, as opposed to those listed in the help file.
The following table shows the pay table, hit frequency, and expected return for picking 1 to 10 numbers. The greatest return is on the pick-4 at 94.82%.
|Pick||Pay Table||Hit Freq.||Return|
One type of bet requires every ball selected by the player to be drawn. The following table shows what a winning bet pays, according to how many numbers the player picks, from 1 to 10.
One type of bet requires every ball selected by the player to NOT be drawn. The following table shows what a winning bet pays, according to how many numbers the player picks, from 1 to 10.
Sum of Balls
The player may bet whether the first 5 or all 20 balls will be over or under the average expected for that many picks. The following table shows the bets available. All have a 50% chance of winning and at a win of 1.9, have an expected return of 95%.
